Did You Know?


There are two references to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, who also wrote the Dirk Gently books: The Rowdy 3 consists of 4 members, 5 when Amanda joins them. This is reminiscent of when So Long and Thanks for All the Fish was called "the fourth book in the Hitchiker's Trilogy" and the next book, Mostly Harmless was called "the fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy." In the second season, the Boretons had a dog named Agrajag. Agrajag was the name of a constantly reincarnating creature who coincidentally gets killed by Arthur Dent every time he comes back in the third book, Life, the Universe, and Everything. See more »

I Kinda Love this Show!
1 November 2016 | by rwunderSee all my reviews

I read the book many years ago, but went into this show with 0 expectations and open to where it would take me. And I kinda love it! It's a madcap, comedy/adventure that I think captures Douglass Adams' narrative style (at least as it applies to the Hitchhiker's Guide - my fav book of all time). It's a little bit out there, sure, but that's how the source material is. After watching the first two episodes back to back, I'm in. 100%. I can't wait to see where they go with this show. Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is a lot of fun and I'm excited to continue with it.

Don't pay too much mind to the negative reviews. This show is going to find a sweet spot with an audience, and if it looks interesting to you, give it a try. You may like it or dislike it, but you certainly wont be bored by it!
