Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (BBC America) – Starts 23rd October – Renewed

After walking into a rather bloody crime scene, bellhop and man of debt Todd Brotzman ends up losing his job and becoming suspect with the local police. Todd then reluctantly becomes the sidekick of Dirk Gently, a holistic detective hired to work the murder case, and believes everything is interconnected and solves cases by following fate.

Gently is also being hunted down by a holistic assassin who believes that anyone she kills was meant to be, being tailed by a government agency and is tormented by an anarchist group called the Rowdy 3.

The show itself is goes along at such a pace that at times you’re not really sure what’s going on. Though it’s good enough to keep your interest.
