Okay I finally watched the original. I was wrong. I was the idiot. I now see waht you mean. This new one is good, but is not anything like the original. I apologize for being so stupid.

We can all agree it is a good show, but it is Dirk Gently in Name Only. The writing is fine, the acting okay except for the killer who is just a ripoff of Helena from Orphan Black, and the story is decent. It is not Dirk Gently though.

Sure, but the character is defined in the book and THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES. THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES has the character better written and acted. Why use the name of the character from THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES and make him so close to the idea of character THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES if your going to make a different series? look at uncle buck, or most tv adaptations of movies. They hit the uncanny valley. If you want to rewrite 20% of the character from THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES then make a new series all together and not a remake of THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES.
I included THE ORIGINAL TELEVISION (VIDEO) SERIES in the original post because I know what Douglas Adams said about adaptations.

Gotta love the "read the book" line... VIDEO IS NOT THE BOOK. It's like saying "read the recipe, then taste the dish"... they are 2 completely separate things. So much variation happens in the interpretation of the writing that the latter stands on it's OWN merits. And no one should need to or be required to read anything if evaluation the video.

Read the book, watch the original, then see if you don't have problems with the remake. Dirk loses his laziness and gains a backstory. The original Dirk was less believes it and practices it, and more of a believes it, loves that it is easy, and does it. Too many elements were changed to make it fresh. It is sitting in the uncanny valley of Dirk Gently.

Liz: Maybe you should give this British/American remake a chance though it is often hard to adapt to a new version when you really like the original. Just a thought

I thought they canned Dirk Gently. It was on and amazing. Stephen Mangan went on to do Episodes and Darren Boyd went on to do spy. Man I miss Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. That was a good show.
