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.
The show was shot almost entirely in Vancouver, British Columbia. This is most notable in the early episodes. For instance, Todd's apartment and all the scenes surrounding it were filmed on the corner of Guelph and Broadway in the late summer of 2016. See more »
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.
