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


Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2, Episode 4 “The House within the House” (B+)

Was this a completely out-there episode? Totally. But it managed to tie things together in a very cool way, as Amanda and Vogel got transplanted to Wendimoor, Dirk spent some time in a house that may also have existed there, and the Mage revealed himself to be the ruler of Wendimoor there to ensure that none other than Dirk Gently would be taken out rather than stand in his way. Amanda and Todd seeing each other was awesome, but not as much as Amanda actually having powers which helped her to take everyone out. I enjoyed the conversations between Panto Trost and Bart in jail, and I think that he may be just the friend that Bart has been looking for. Ken isn’t much closer to getting out of that room, but he has made some important progress that could help him in that quest and will certainly aid Hugo in gaining control of the situation back. Farah nearly put everything together without much help from the hapless Tina, but Hobbs called at just that moment to make sure that they couldn’t walk in to find the Mage with his wand at Suzie’s throat. Something tells me she’s just the person to try to kill Dirk Gently, and her next meeting with Bart isn’t going to be nearly as friendly as their first one. Dirk might not have been sure during this episode, but at least we know now that everything truly is connected, and we’re headed for even wilder revelations soon.
