This show is one of the awesomest things I have ever witnessed on television.
Not the BEST.. But one of the awesomest.
Check out John The Canadien’s review of this show, which he watched based on my recommendation! Thanks John!

5/5 stars from both of us. Clint: 9/10, Carolyn: 8/10. [7.7/10 on IMDB]
… The only Douglas Adams book I ever actually read was a Dirk Gently novel I read in 1987ish, not that I remember books I read in the 80s the way I remember movies watched in the 80s.
Anyway, it was nice to be reminded just what the hell that was all about.
I wish the British didn’t have such tiny series. Waiting 2 yrs after a series pilot to get just three more episodes is a bum rap. Do 26 of these, please! And that’s the problem I have with British TV. You can barely spend as much time on a series you love as a series you hate, because by the time you’ve watched enough episodes to really know the difference, it’s over anyway.
But yeah…. Complaints aside, this was awesome. Dirk Gently is kind of an asshole anti-hero, and the relationship between him and his reluctant partner has a really good on-screen [non-sexual] chemistry.

What if Michael Bey directed a live-action My Little Pony movie? Hat tip to Tauna X.
