Storyline and production info
A new comic sci-fi detective television series, Dirk Gently`s Holistic Detective Agency is created by Max Landis and based on two novels by Douglas Adams. The show is the result of creative collaboration between Wow! Max He Really Did It!!!, UTMK, Ideate Media, IDW Entertainment, Circle of Confusion and AMC Studios for BBC America, and has made its debut on October 22, 2016.
Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood) are a quirky detective and sidekick duo that specialize in the investigations that require their special intuition. Dirk deeply believes that everything in the world is connected, which forms the basis for his investigating approach, and he uses his special powers to solve mysterious murders, kidnappings and other crimes at a frenetic pace.
Reception and chances of renewal
The quirky detective comedy has a mostly positive score of 7.9/10 on IMDb, and a slightly lower, but still solid 62% on Metacritic and 68% on Rotten Tomatoes. Some of the negative reviews owe their critical approach to the fact that the series is not a by-the-book adaptation of the novels, but for the majority of those who either haven`t read the originals or have a more open mind in that regard, the show provides excellent, original and offbeat entertainment. Considering the generally supportive reception, the second season of the show may very well find its way to our TV screens, so please stay tuned, and we will inform you when the fate of Dirk Gently`s Holistic Detective Agency is announced.
