    A DILAPIDATED BOAT! Prestigious

    Created and written by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein) and based of the 1987 novel of the same name by Douglas Adams.

    Samuel Barnett is playing Dirk Gently the P.I who solves crimes by using "the fundamental interconnectedness of all things"and Elijah Wood is playing his reluctant sidekick Todd.

    I know nobody likes Max Landis but this show is really great.

    this and Superman: American Alien are the two best things he's done I think.

    This got a pretty mixed-to-negative reception over at A.V. Club. I haven't seen it and also haven't read the books (although I love Adams and have read all of the Hitchhiker's Guide books). Is it worth checking out?

    My dislike for Landis outweighs any interest I may have.

    it's completely bonkers, but I was completely entertained and really enjoyed it. I'm also a big fan of Elijah wood. everyone does an excellent job though. I'm looking forward to hopefully a season 2.

    It's probably one of the best first seasons of a show I've seen in awhile. Crazy labyrinthine sci-fi with really fun/interesting characters.

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    I don't like Landis as a human being at all, but I did really like Chronicle and appreciated things about American Ultra and Superman: American Alien. Can't say it's too high on my priorities though.

    I think it's possible to enjoy and appreciate shows, music, art, etc even if you don't like the creator as a person. he's one person in a big project full of incredibly talented people that all do a great job.
