TV at its finest
2 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

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.
