1 Dirk Gently on Tue Feb 21, 2017 8:21 pm

I read the books in my teens and barely remember them now. The Stephen Mangan series was great but I just finished the BBC America version which I was dreading cos, well, it's BBC America and I was expecting it to full on US with an American gumshoe named Dirk. Thankfully, that didn't happen.

I was impressed - and I don't say that very often - the humour was very in keeping with what had gone before and the idea of a holistic assassin was fantastic. Not sure they really needed Elijah Wood in another loveable loss role, but I enjoyed Wilfred so why not?

Wasn't so sure about the casting or characterisation of Dirk but it was new and fresh. I did miss the down-and-out feel of Manan's portrayal and the synchronicity of everything was just superb. I don't know if it's getting another season but I do hope so.

Adam Ant Driver

Dick Tater
Season 2 will be on some time this year. It can't come soon enough after that finale; great series, with a great soundtrack.

The time travel was also great, puts so many time travel stories to shame with how it brought it all together.
