Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
is a Netflix series inspired by the character created by Douglas Adams in the novels Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
and The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul
, and is not to be confused with the British series Dirk Gently
, also based on the books, starring Stephen Mangan.
The Netflix show relocates Dirk from London to the USA and alters his backstory somewhat, though at least they didn't turn him into an American. It stars Samuel Barnett as Dirk and Elijah Wood as his assistant, Todd. If you're watching the series, what do you think of it so far?

No, I hadn't heard of it, as we don't do Netflix, but I do watch every Inspector George Gently episode on iview that comes out!
That's a different detective. Confusing with the names.
