Saturday on TV – 10/22/16

Saturday is the series premiere of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on BBC Amercia 9/8c. “Perhaps every day before now has been for the most part humdrum and inane, your life a mundane unvarying slog through unfulfilling jobs, shallow depression and boring, BORING sex…? Then suddenly…everything changed.” So goes the life of Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood); accurately surmised by the intrusive stranger Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) … a holistic detective who doesn’t really detect… or find clues… or ever really solved a case… Ok, so he’s a crazy person who’s insinuated himself into the life of a man who literally has absolutely nothing left to lose… An eight-part series penned by Max Landis (American Ultra, Chronicle), Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, adapted from the wildly popular novels by Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy).

Tonight is also the season premiere of Comic Book Men on AMC at 12:40AM/11:40PMc.
