Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency's Todd and Dirk 

"Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" review by Suzanne 11/11/16
Airs Saturdays 9/8c on BBC America

This is a very very weird show. It has a lot of action and frenetic activity, and tons of mystery. It's hard to know exactly what's going on. I guess that's supposed to be part of the fun of the show, but I just found it to be very weird.

Wilfred's Elijah Wood plays Todd, a young guy who works in a dull job at a hotel. His life is turned upside down by some people and a series of events. There are so many twists and turns that you will get whiplash.

Dirk Gently is a very goofy guy (played by Samuel Barnett) who intrudes on Todd's life, along with others. There are many colorful characters, and surprisingly, some poignant ones, such as Todd's sister.

The show is very intriguing and has some good mysteries. If you can get past how weird and silly it is, then you should enjoy it. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

The show is based on a series of books by Douglas Adams, who also wrote "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."  I've read all of these books and I recall loving them (it's been at least 30 years, though).
