I was curious if anyone on the board has seen the BBC Dirk Gently 3 episode series based on Douglas Adams' "Dirk Gently" books and whether or not it was any good.

I can't believe I didn't know this had been made!

There are actually 4 episodes - there was a pilot in 2010, plus the 3 episodes from this season.

I just finished the first episode, and it was fantastic. The actor playing Dirk is perfect. The director, editor, and overall style of the show are really good. And the story was funny, witty, and remarkably clever. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

It's a shame that it wasn't renewed for a second season.

I had no clue that it existed either. Yesterday I was looking through some soundtracks at a site and happened to stumble across the soundtrack for the show. Couldn't believe it, so I googled it and found out more info.

Can't wait to check out all four of the eps.

Thanks for the review of the first ep rdks! Very Happy

What do you suppose is the likelihood it'll see an official R1 DVD release?

Honestly, I have no clue, but I wouldn't hold my breath for one anytime soon...
