It's not Douglas Adams, still very good series
7 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dirk Gently's holistic detective agency is an intriguing comedic detective story set in a magical real world with larger and smaller than life characters tied by a chain of fate that looks like an incredible number of crazy coincidences. It is a very enjoyable series with good storytelling, good actors and a nice budget to go along. It is something different and defined that requires a bit of work on your part as it's not another dumbed down cop show, alas you will be repaid in full. Photography and music are great and effects are decent. Direction is good as well and actions are presented in an interesting editing with good framing.

For the readers: This series is good, it's not the source material.

You can either accept it and have a good show with unusually good acting or hate it for what it is not and ruin this for yourself. BBC took a risk and invested heavily on an Americanised show for a wider public. I love Adams' original work but let's face it: what works on paper might not work on the screen and most of the times faithful representations happen when the source is easy to be broken down into a fast paced storyboard, that is very rarely true. I personally hate the Guide movie, while I think this product captures more the spirit of Adams' writing if not the whole substance.

Even with with the worldwide success enjoyed by the source author, it is amazingly difficult to find investors ready to put money on such a perceived niche product, they would rather invest in CSI Somewhere. Please be kind and enjoy, one day... one day we might even have a truly faithful art piece, after US country wide legalisation that might even go to commercial success. For now welcome this and hope for more.
