Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency |S2| Saturdays on BBC America

Dirk is back with an all new adventure beginning Saturday, October 14 at 9/8c. The first season was really quite fun, so here's to more of the same in season two!

Every season is a dizzying, smart, dangerous, unexpected and (for us, not the people involved) fun adventure that explores a different genre.

Season one was about time travel with body-swapping, and this season involves an injection of fantasy. The vast dangers lurking in the fantasy realm navigate a path to Earth, becoming a threat in reality, and it's up to Dirk and the gang to stop them in their tracks. But first – they need to find each other... Everything and everyone continues to be connected... from the sterile chambers of the government organization Blackwing, to the sleepy town of Bergsberg and the magical land of Wendimoor. After a few misfires, Dirk Gently steadily finds his footing on the new case to ”find The Boy", and with the help of his friends, makes the necessary connections to solve the mystery before it's too late.

From creator Max Landis and showrunner Robert Cooper, the series is adapted from the popular novels by Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who).
The ten-part season two premieres on BBC AMERICA in the U.S. and will stream globally on Netflix in countries outside the U.S.

In the Season 2 premiere, Todd and Farah are on the run from the law and head to small town Bergsberg, Montana in search of Dirk. Mysteriously, Bart's search for Ken takes her to the same small town, where unexplainable events start occurring.

Thought the premiere was pretty tepid to be honest. I'm not sure it was the best idea to repeat season one's "puzzling things happen to a million different characters, with no context for anything" format in the second year. Still, even though I would have liked something a little more different, I'm sure the season will shape up nicely as it goes along.

I loved the first season through and through and didn't have any real problems. This season seems to have a great plot with an evil government organization and a dimension children's straight out of a children's book.

I'm starting to notice a trend in how dialogue and characters are written, and it was a bit unexpected for the jump ahead 2 months with so many differences but I guess that's to be expected. Plus it adds more to the story.

I'm all in.

Yo GAF; anyone here still watching this? I just finished the recent episode and and I absolitley adore this season. They hit the vibe so perfectly! Every episode I have no idea what is gonna happen, the whole holistic case is constructed brillantly and every actor seems to enjoy him or herself in their roles.

This is easily my favourite TV series atm and I am looking forward to it every week.

Also great music and sound design in general. I recently bought fome fine speakers and this is one of the moments, when I really appreciate it. The intro theme alone. So crisp and weid and such a nice base. Last episoded song in the end was epic too.

Man, this series reminds me of falling in love with parcs and rec, late in this shows runtime. For a short while I felt like witnessing a real friendship and season two of Gently hits the same spot. Yo and GAF does to from time to time.

So any love for Dirk and his awesome team here?

I'm just waiting for season 2 to make it to Netflix. Season 1 was one of the biggest surprises of last year for me so I am definitely excited for 2.

I'd be fine with Netflix picking this up as a real exclusive if nobody else wants to foot the bill.
I do hope this series is not complete dead in the water. Still need to getting around to watching season 2.

Don't know if I misread it somewhere but didn't Netflix partly fund the series to begin with?

I'll give it a shot. Elijah Wood was great in S1, but most of the other actors were pretty rough.
Agreed, I stuck through Season 1 on Netflix, but I must admit beyond the vague pull of the mystery hook I didn't find it overly compelling and the Guy playing Dirk was just annoying versus intriguing.
