[quick review] Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Soooo, now that i’ve seen it in its entierty thanks to the phenomenon that is binge watching i thought i’d sum up my thoughts:

Although the looks and mannerisms of the titular character as well as Max Landis involvement put me off at first it did not come out as bad as i thought.
While this iteration of Dirk Gently has almost nothing in common with his counterparts (my guess is that down the line we’ll learn about alternate worlds in which the the print/radio/other tv version is a reality) it works in the context of the story. And embracing the holsitic detecting is one of the saving graces of the show. It is the curiosity of seeing the prestige at the end of the magic trick you’re wittnessing that kept me watching as well as all the props used in the trick.
It isn’t nice to call the actors involved props considering that their performances are another positive aspect of he show, but it works with the magic trick reference. Sorry.
Even if i’m not keen on Samuell Barnett and Elijah Wood as the main characters i see that their chemistry, which is a mix of recent Doctor Who and Sherlock interactions, will be something that the audience will grab on to as an anchor to center them in the seemingly random events unfolding around them.

This all sounds more negative than it actually is. I enjoyed the show because it truly feels new and not like it is trying to utilize my nostalgia for it’s gain.

i had planned to hate Netflix’s Dirk Gently

But despite the oddly coloured jackets the titular character wears and Elijah Wood as his assist-friend i came to the conclusion that it’s not that bad after two episodes.

But it will never erase my dissapointment about the cancellation of the Stephen Mangan and Darren Boyd helmed version of the holistic detective.

this years adorable Star Wars ad

Remember the Star Wars themed ad that german company Rewe had last year?

Globe Telecom Inc. utilizes the power of the franchise coupled with kids in their marketing. But it also shows how it can bring people together or deal with the realities of our lifes.
