i adore douglas adams his writing, i love the way utter chaos and madness gets woven into a magnificent story that somehow makes sense in a weird way.
Although i enjoyed the film of the hitchhiker's guide through the galaxy it was a bleak rendition of the story i had read and loved before.
In dirk gently's case, i feel the series comes a lot closer to the chaotic genius story ive read in the books.
Dont watch this show if you want an answer right away (or at all for that matter)
Watch this show for the ride, the adventure and the madness.
This show is really hard to describe, but if you like it you really like it. The cast is versatile and every character in this universe is complex and compelling. It is at times scary, but always intelligent and fun. It is charming and the story is complex, yet makes total sense for these characters. I just really love it and encourage everyone to give it a chance, because it is fantastic!
