Inspired by Douglas Adams' novels, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency might be a series you're familiar with. The novels were adapted by BBC America in a "not exactly by the book" kind of way. The only character truly from the books in this new adaptation is Dirk himself, played by the ever hysterical Samuel Barnett. The first season starts with a new character named Todd (played by Elijah Wood) and follows him as he is pulled into Dirk's crazy mysteries as his new (albeit unenthusiastic) assistant. The show quickly becomes a wacky buddy comedy full of weird characters, unexpected plots and a mystery so strange you'd be frustrated by it if it wasn't so hilarious. Centered around the main theme that "all things are connected", this show takes that common mantra to a whole new level. Prepare to binge two seasons of shark-cats, rowdy punks, time travel, assassins, and giant purple people eaters.
Follows the adventures of eccentric detective Dirk Gently and his sidekick Todd Brotzman as they investigate cases involving the supernatural.
