This review is based on the pilot of "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" which aired 10/22/16. Dirk Gently is based on a book, and has another televised variant from 2010, also on the BBC -- and yet somehow it feels almost exactly like the spiritual successor to Channel 4's Utopia -- providing not only the same composer, the legendary Cristobal Tapia de Veer, but the same utter insanity. If you haven't seen Utopia, or the pilot of Dirk Gently's holistic Detective Agency - let me first tell you what its about, then what its like. So; the premise of the show revolves around the character of Dirk Gently, who is a self-proclaimed detective whom for whatever reason believes that absolutely everything is interconnected and like a blood hound, merely follows alleged connections rather than finding actual clues; hence "holistic." it is a serialized show focusing on a grizzly murder case and the unusual circumstances that led up to it. Now that probably sounds to you like a conventional series but with a slightly quirky detective, as I expected It would be -- only, thats not what it is, at all. Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is an acid trip of one insane character after another, each with their own psychoses frolicking about as obstacles through which the protagonists must avoid and survive in order to solve the case and get their lives back on track. All we have is Dirk Gently's word and bond that absolutely everything is connected -- somehow. And I believe him. One does not provide a pilot with such utter chaos and insanity without having a master plan for how it all fits together in the end. Think of Dirk Gently as a broken vase. In the pilot, this vase is smashed into pieces, and each week one additional piece will be glued together, until it is finally is restored by the end and you wonder why anyone had purchased it in the first place because its got a clown painted on one side, and frankly, it freaks you out a bit. Yes -- I suspect that even when things come together, the chaos and the insanity will be as prevalent as they were in the pilot. And that's what makes it so fun. For the pilot however, I have to go with 3 and a half stars - because I only have the word of Dirk Gently that everything is connected. Right now it just seems very hectic and crazy, and while it was fun, and I know from Utopia that its going to be one hell of a crazy journey, It was weird as hell XD. It will take some getting used to for people who are used to normal TV shows. This is not Elementary, this is not Sherlock, and if you haven't seen Utopia, there really is no show that has this same level of craziness. Maybe Weeds .... UPDATE: I take it all back, its just pure madness. It's like someone let their 6 year old sketch pictures and made it into a TV show. Not a single character reacts with any rationale. Its chaos....

Just as unique and addictive as Dr. Who. The cast and well round characters set this one apart from the others.
