Dirk Gen­tly Holis­tic De­tec­tive Agency, Sea­son 2

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - GUIDE -

Eight episodes, avail­able Fri­day “Have you no­ticed an ac­cel­er­a­tion of the strange­ness in your life?” says a po­lite time trav­eller (John Han­nah) to Suzie (Amanda Walsh) a few mo­ments be­fore he kills her boss, the owner of dy­na­mite com­pany.

An ac­cel­er­a­tion of strange­ness de­scribes the sec­ond sea­son of this se­ries, which has been adopted from the work of Dou­glas Adams, but it still re­tains the light touch that made the first one a hit last year.

The new sea­son opens up in the mag­i­cal king­dom of Wendi­moor, which is be­ing threat­ened by ma­raud­ers un­der the spell of Madge (Han­nah) who has crossed over into the present day. Pick­ing up from last year, psy­chic gumshoe Dirk (Sa­muel Bar­nett) has been im­pris­oned by the gov­ern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion, Black­wing. Dirk’s as­sis­tant, ex-rocker Todd (Eli­jah Wood) is try­ing to reach out to the uni­verse for clues to lo­cate Dirk, which is ap­par­ently what holis­tic de­tec­tives do.
