Here's How You Can Watch Every Season Of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

With so much content coming out on streaming services, it is often easy to overlook something you would be interested in. And if your interests align with science fiction comedy, detective stories, or a combination of the two, then look no further than Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

The BBC America series is based on the novel of the same name by Douglas Adams, who most science fiction fans know as the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It follows the quirky, self-proclaimed "holistic detective" Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his sidekick Todd Brotzman (Elijiah Wood) as they investigate cases. Dirk believes that everything in the universe is interconnected and often relies on fate rather than traditional methods to solve his cases.

The Digital Fix sums up the show as "a whirlwind of time traveling madness, beautiful friendships with a dash of a secret government conspiracy added in for good measure. And yes, everything is connected."

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is a captivating comedy-thriller

While the show does provide intriguing mysteries for Dirk and Todd to seek out the answers for, it is also seeped in the entertainment factor. The Observer brought up another show about a detective duo that may be in the back of your mind and ready to compare Dirk Gently to: Sherlock, of course. But, besides the bare-bones concept of two men who solve cases together, the Observer insists that the similarities stop there. "If Sherlock is an aged whiskey, Dirk Gently is a strawberry daiquiri spiked with an extra few shots of vodka from a flask disguised as a tube of sunblock," the outlet noted. And if the idea of a "strawberry daiquiri" of a protagonist isn't alluring enough, the Observer adds that the show is "gorgeous, ambitious, pre-meditated chaos ... grounded only by subtle performances by Elijah Wood, and Samuel Barnett as the titular detective."

With two charming and likable leads in Barnett's Dirk and Wood's Todd, as well as a successful blend of genres and tones, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is the perfect binge-watch for sci-fi fans to delve into next. Both seasons — with a total of 18 episodes — are currently available to watch on Hulu.
