What I’m Watching: Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2, Episode 3 “Two Broken Fingers” (B+)

Everything really is connected, though of course the writers on this show have the opportunity to link it all together because they’re the ones writing it. Panto Trost got hit by a car being driven by Suzie’s son, her zombified husband runs the motel where our friends were staying, and Dirk Gently, once again, is at the center of it all. Though she’s far less impressive inside a prison cell, it was great to see Bart show up and repeatedly mention how she was just going around killing people, prompting these truly superb police officers to leave her all alone in the jail while running around investigating things with their other prisoners. Tina offering Farah weed gummies while having her hold her gun in the passenger seat was among the hour’s most entertaining moments. Suzie is trying to step back up the social ladder with her newfound powers, but she’s doing more damage than good, particularly with the women of the book club who she used to call friends. She doesn’t even know what she’s dealing with, since it’s apparently the wand itself and not her that has the powers, and Mage is back and ready to reclaim this weapon. As Hugo haplessly played with his toy, Mr. Priest switched into lethal mode against orders, but fortunately Amanda hoping that something would happen led to her and Vogle getting transported somewhere else, an exciting development that seems to have left Mr. Priest quite riled up and ready to use even more force to take out this threat.
