Hmm. So I've just seen a trailer for a TV show called 'Dirk Gently'. I don't watch TV much and didn't realise an adaptation had been done.
The question is: will it be worth watching, or a huge disappointment? I have asked this table leg, but its answer didn't make any sense.

Previous adaptation was OK and didn't make me shout at the telly, hopefully this will be just as good!

Going to watch it; might be OK.
I missed the earlier show (pilot?) so I can't comment on that.
I thoroughly enjoyed the audio book (Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency) read by Douglas Adams himself.

I saw the one about the cat that travelled in time. It was ok, a bit silly in places.

You obviously didn't interpret it in the right way.

I heard that it was more "based loosely on a story by Adams", rather than a faithful adapting of the books. It would be rather challenging to bring them to the screen.

Watched it, liked it.
Mr Mangan is pretty good in my eyes (Green wing and 'the hunt for Tony Blair' were ace, shame about the Barclaycard ads...)
McDuff was played by the guy that also portrayed a young John Cleese in the excellent Holy Flying Circus.
Any character that likes Brie wins with me, as does anyone that takes a knife to a piece of furniture.

It was OK. The plot was fun but I got the sense that they were trying to cram a huge amount in to an hour and were having trouble. I'm worried that it might end up like that rather dismal detective-in-the-tropics. But it was diverting enough for an hour.
