I have read the hell out of the Hitchhikers series when i was younger, and I have known for a long time about the Dirk Gently series, but for some reason it never was on my list of things to read. Yesterday I happen across a british show that was done at the end of 2010 called Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective agency. It was a one shot but apparently they are going to make 3 more episodes which is how i learned of it. I decided to watch the first one and see if it would make me want to read the book.
I was expecting a 'Sherlock' like detective series when i heard about his 'connectivity' theory but the tv show, dispite having pretty good reviews of people saying it captured the book pretty well, was somewhat dissapointing. The story was predictable (forgivable considering when it was written compared to most sci-fi), but the main character seemed less a brilliant detective then a con-artist who is applying logic that while may be logically correct, its so broad a conclusion to be boring.
Was the book like this? Or has the TV show just taken alot more liberties then it should have in the characterization?
