James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
Journalist Ozzie Graham is skeptical when he investigates a support group for oddballs who think they have been abducted by aliens -- yet the more he learns, the more confused, intrigued, and seduced he becomes.
Centers on the titular holistic detective who investigates cases involving the supernatural. Based on the "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" novel series, written by Douglas Adams and published by Simon and Schuster in 1987.
I watched Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency not having read any reviews, or knowing anything about it (asides from reading the books and watching the original BBC show), drawn in by the title alone and being a Douglas Adams fan.
Having watched only the first episode, I was captivated. Okay perhaps it's not true to the original, but it's so much better than the previous BBC production.
Reading some reviews before writing this I can't help but think some people just don't quite "get it". The plot seems all over the place, but surely that's the whole point - everything is connected - and I assume the stories will come together later in the series.
