A police detective in the asteroid belt, the first officer of an interplanetary ice freighter and an earth-bound United Nations executive slowly discover a vast conspiracy that threatens the Earth's rebellious colony on the asteroid belt.
James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
Centers on the titular holistic detective who investigates cases involving the supernatural. Based on the "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" novel series, written by Douglas Adams and published by Simon and Schuster in 1987.
This is one of those series that is going to be divisive in several respects.
There are going to be those who've read the books, and those who haven't. Those who care whether it follows the books, and those who don't. And on top of that, this is not a show that is trying to appeal in one way or another to all audiences either. This is likely going to be one of those shows that you will either give a very high or a very low rating.
The story is fast paced, and presented like a jigsaw puzzle. Avoid if you like your stories linear, with an optional twist at the end. This one is all twist. (Maybe it'll be linear at the end.)
I didn't expect anything going in, and came out happy for having seen it.
