5 Reasons Why You Should Watch Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency


Last year BBC America gave a sneak peek of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency at the New York Comic Con and what a preview it was! Knowing nothing about the show beforehand I felt like I had been thrown inside a washing machine during the spinning cycle. So here are the top 5 reasons you should check out this super fun show:

#5 The Very First Episode Just Hooks You


The very first episode of season 1 might be the most information packed episode of TV, period. And that's totally not a bad thing. The amount of questions raised is insane but that just makes the subsequent episodes and finale even more satisfying to watch.

I don't think I need to say anything else other than what this GIF has already said

#3 The (friend)Ships

There's some weird pairings all around, but the weirdness is what makes it work. From Dirk/Todd to Bart/Ken or Amanda/Rowdy 3 and so many other great ones, this cast is pretty awesome when it comes to characters interacting with each other. Which leads to...

#2 All The Characters Get to Have Great Lines


We all have our faves on each show we watch. On Dirk Gently you will have a hard time choosing because all the characters are developed and well-rounded. This is one of the few shows on TV right now that has really fun writing combined with great acting. If you don't believe me just watch the scene above

#1 Love Sci-Fi shows? Love Mystery Shows? Love Quirky Comedies? All of the Above? Then Dirk Gently is For You


It has a bit of everything and if you enjoy other BBC shows like Doctor Who and Orphan Black this show won't disappoint you. If I had to describe this show, I'd say it is like entering the weirdest house of mirrors or writing the Kingda Ka... as they say "Potato, Potato"  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Bonus


As an Earper I was super stoked to see Bobo del Rey (Michael Eklund) as one of the Rowdy 3 😆
