Critic Reviews for Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

For those viewers who may have binged the show on Hulu or On Demand though, this will be an exercise in patience. Dirk Gently is a show that is best consumed in bigger chunks, if only to get to these connections faster.

Oct 16, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The question of whether or not Dirk Gently succeeds as a show for you is unlikely to change with this new season. It remains the frustrating, creative, eccentric show it's always been.

Oct 16, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

I think that at the end of the day, Dirk Gently's nonsensical world view is very much like ours. [Full review in Spanish]

Apr 27, 2021 | Full Review…

Dirk Gently is tainted with controversy, but the writers clearly make an effort to be inclusive.

Aug 1, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The sense of humor, the rhythm, the dialogue, the visual and practically everything else follow the same line of the first season, without, at least for now, falling into repetition, so do not hesitate to continue seeing it. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is a whirlwind of time travelling madness, beautiful friendships with a dash of a secret government conspiracy added in for good measure. And yes, everything is connected.

Mar 8, 2019 | Full Review…

BBC America's quirky hit series, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency ... by immediately introducing a new fantasy world called Wendimoor.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

[Dirk Gently] shoulders a lot of something special as it plays with the wonderfully absurd amidst a thriller involving a millionaire's murder, a black cat and vampires in vans.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

In Dirk's world, the disorienting chaos may be turned up to eleventy-eleven, but it at least resolves in a single, short season.

Nov 10, 2017 | Full Review…

This newest version of Holistic Detective Agency is very, very weird - and lots of fun.

Oct 16, 2017 | Full Review…

This opening episode hit the ground running, and the story is just as engaging as the first season, different though it may be.

Oct 16, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Whether or not season 2 will be as magical as the land of Wendimoor suggests remains to be seen, but Dirk Gently is certainly off to a strong start.

Audience Reviews for Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2

  • 1d ago
    Best fresh show i have seen!
  • Mar 31, 2021
    The first season was awesome, but it loses everything in the second season. Too many characters to follow, the main plot isn't as interesting as the first season and it feels out of context, the whole middle part of the season is a mess of thing that happen in repeat, and the fantastic Sci-Fi stuff is replaced whit some nonsense fantasy. It feels like the character that you cared so much in the first season were replaced with some evil clones from them self. I get why a third season of this show does not exist. 2 stars only because the quality of the effects, directing and acting is high.

    amazing love it so much! i want more of this!
  • Feb 24, 2021
    Another great show falls to political correctness and identity politics! Season one was really enjoyable but this season showed it's agenda right from the beginning! Seems like the writers spend more time on their quota system than writing an entertaining story!
  • Dec 31, 2020
    I really wish they made a season 3. It really felt like they were preparing for it at the end and I was 100% ready to watch as many more seasons as they could possibly make. I love this show !
  • Dec 10, 2020
    I had reservations about American writers reinterpreting Douglas Adams - but I think they took an okay novel and turned it into an absolute masterpiece, which I'm sure Doug would have loved. The cast, writing, direction and everything else about this show is utterly brilliant! Cancelling it when there is so much love for it makes me think production companies are run by soul-less joy-vampires. I've re-watched the two seasons so many times I can recite the lines in my sleep.

    Underwhelming and disinteresting. Also ridiculously weird, which didn't exactly help the plot, it just feels like the writers got drunk and were like "haha what if we just😂", and then, did. After S1, I had high hopes, but S2 was just terribly boring and ridiculous and stretched out far beyond its deserved runtime. "The House Within a House" was a pretty interesting, horror-ish episode. The rest of the season was easily discardable, and they freakin ruined my boy Ken. Honestly, all this season did was make me want to rewatch S1.
  • Dec 03, 2020
    One of my favorite show of the last few years. Original, funny and great characters.
  • Nov 20, 2020
    Sticking with and improving upon what made the first season so great, Dirk Gently season 2 is a fantastic and worthwhile follow-up.
  • Oct 06, 2020
    Just fantastic. Loved it! Concept, ideas, acting it all worked for me. Desperately sad it was dropped. Tbh shocked it was dropped ... I mean look 100% critics rating and the studio drops it? Madness.
