  1. I just watched the first episode of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on Netflix and absolutely love it, it’s funny, it’s weird and above all it’s brilliant 🙂

  2. Is that a remake of the old 2010 BBC series?

  3. Appears to be. According to The Telegraph: “Dirk Gently has already been played by Harry Enfield on the radio, and Stephen Mangan in a shortlived BBC Four show. Now, under the guidance of writer-producer Max Landis, it’s Samuel Barnett’s turn to fill his shoes, which he does with plenty of sub-Doctor Who arm-waving and chirpy enthusiasm.”

  4. Yes, I do get the feeling of Matt Smith’s Doctor Who with Dirk 🙂
