    Anyone one else been watching the BBCA adaptation of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?

    And if so what are your thoughts about it in comparison the the BBC version with Stephen Mangan, the BBC R4 adaptation and the books?

    I watched the series that showed up on Netflix - the one with Elijah Wood in it. Took me a while to warm to the main guy as Dirk as he was *totally* different to the version in my head from the books. But I actually really enjoyed it in the end. The madness of it all captured Douglas Adams style pretty nicely, I thought.
