    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

    It is based on the Douglas Adams novel of the same name,and is an awesome TV series worth watching:

    Sadly it has been recently cancelled after two seasons but was a very unique series.

    I have this in my watchlist on Netflix and been unsure on it. Will give it a watch over the next few days.

    I had heard people going on about it but was confused as I had only seen the Stephen Mangan version (which I thought was good), so was wondering what they were talking about. Makes more sense knowing there was another series of it. Never knew it was a book originally, and written by Douglas Adams.

    I think 'inspired by' is probably the phrase. It doesn't really resemble the books...

    Re: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

    Another great series which was cancelled after two seasons was Galavant:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galavant

    That was such a fun series!!

    Edit!!

    It seems BBC America cancelled but Netflix might be still interested in the series,so hopefully they will continue it!!

    Second Edit!!

    Apparently Max Landis had some accusations levied against him,so not sure if this might be why it was cancelled, although officially it was viewing figures although they had not really decreased much from the first season,apparently.
