Dirk Gentlys Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas AdamsWhat do a dead cat, a computer whiz-kid, an Electric Monk who believes the world is pink, quantum mechanics, a Chronologist over 200 years old, Samuel Taylor Coleridge (poet), and pizza have in common? Apparently not much; until Dirk Gently, self-styled private investigator, sets out to prove the fundamental interconnectedness of all things by solving a mysterious murder, assisting a mysterious professor, unravelling a mysterious mystery, and eating a lot of pizza – not to mention saving the entire human race from extinction along the way (at no extra charge). To find out more, read this book (better still, buy it, then read it) – or contact Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. ‘A thumping good detective-ghost-horror-whodunnit-time travel-romantic-musical-comedy epic.’ The author

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency has all the makings of a new cult favorite: It's crammed with weird ideas, gore, crazy set pieces and a few charming moments. But you probably won't be able to enjoy it unless you stop thinking of it as a Douglas Adams adaptation. But other than the basic concept—a "holistic detective" named Dirk who breezes around getting into weird situations and then ties all the threads together with a mixture of luck and intuition—this TV show has little in common with Adams' work. The tone, in particular, is miles away from Adams' absurd wit. In this version, Dirk Gently is the only British person in a U. Writer Max Landis who wrote all eight episodes has used Adams' basic idea as a jumping-off point for something that feels more like it belongs in the same universe as John Dies at the End. If you don't like one gonzo storyline about creepy kidnappers, indoor shark attacks or bizarre diseases, just wait a minute, and the show will be about something completely different.
