What I’m Watching: Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (Series Finale)


Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2, Episode 10 “Nice Jacket” (B+)

I’m devastated. I don’t know if it’s better or worse that I knew going into this show that it had already been cancelled since my TV viewing the past few weeks has been so delayed. This was the show I most pointed to as a singular and unique series that others should continue watching since they obviously hadn’t heard of it, and I would have enjoyed watching seasons upon seasons of it. While I do think that season one was superior to season two overall in terms of the specific plot, I was impressed with how things turned out and came together by the end of this season once we realized that everything was indeed connected. Seeing the boy become the boy again in Wendimoor was awesome, and he was quickly able to disarm Suzie and fix everything by bringing all those that were killed back to life and placing them where they should be. Allowing The Beast to join the Rowdy Three so that they’re now six people was the best decision of all. I also like that Amanda has the wand, and that Todd was able to seemingly control it and stop Suzie from killing him when she tried. There’s so much unresolved here that I would have loved to see address, mainly the fact that Ken is becoming evil, to the point that the universe is telling Bart that she should kill him. It was the dim-witted Hugo, apparently well aware that he’s stupid, who stopped Ken from preventing Dirk and Mona from going to Wendimoor to save the day. The boy’s wisdom – “We’re supposed to help fix things” – was touching, and it’s a nice theme for a show that involves a whole lot of broken and incomprehensible stuff. I’m not sure where we would have gone next from here, but I’m going to continue vehemently recommending this show to anyone I talk to. It may well have been the weirdest show on television, but it was also one of the most creative and delightful.

Season grade: B+
Season MVP: Hannah Marks as Amanda
