OliviaDay’s review published on Letterboxd:
So I’m actually reviewing Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Season 1.
AND I FUCKING LOVED IT
OH MY GOD THIS SHOW
Every aspect of this show I loved. Samuel Barnett as Dirk is absolutely fantastic. Elijah Wood is amazing as Todd.
I loved every storyline in this
Dirk and Todd
Dirk and Todd and Farah
Bart and Ken
The Rowdy 3 and Amanda
Estevez and Zimmerfeild
Gordon and Lydia (and Rapunzel)
Even the government shit was entertaining.
This show had everything going for it. It was creative, it built its own little world and the characters were fantastic.
Going into it, I thought it was just going to be a funny and quirky sci-fi Netflix show. While it was that, it was so much more. This show had depth, it was emotional (I cried at least 5 in the last 3-4 episodes) and it was also shocking and kept you one your toes.
All in all I LOVED THIS SHOW (and if I wasn’t half falling asleep and sick as a dog I would start the second season immediately)
