MovingPictures’s review published on Letterboxd:
This watch was the american television series
DIRK GENTLY'S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY:
SEASON ONE (2016) USA colour 330m.
Not the british 2010 series.
This is based on the writings of british author Douglas Adams (1952-2001), most famous for his comedy science fiction novel series. This started with a radio play 1978 that evolved into a novel; The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1979) which was the first of his trilogy in five parts.
The novel "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" came 1987 and was followed by four other novels in the same vein.
Cast: Elijah Wood, Samuel Barnett, Hannah Marks, Jade Eshete, Fiona Dourif, Mpho Koaho, John Hannah, John Stewart, Neil Brown Jr.
I really enjoyed watching Fiona Dourif. Here she showed the same kind of magic weirdness that her father always managed to conjure up.
This is one of the best BATSHIT CRAZY and jaw-dropping eccentric TV-serials that I have ever watched.
Released by Dazzler Media / BBC America R2 (2018) eight episodes on 2DVD with english subtitles.
An instant 10/10.
Now I am eagerly waiting for the second (2017) series to be released on DVD. I have already ordered the british (2010) series.
