Finished Dirk Gently S2:
It’s a strange, strange show that’s utterly batcrap crazy yet very watchable, as to how it concluded, it only hot Netflix last Friday so spoilers:
Hobbs and Tina were my favourites out of the new additions - their story’s likely done, but they were great.
Bart - Have to admit I was disappointed there was no actual depiction of the chainsaw carnage she inflicted upon the Knights Kellum, nor did it handle where she ends up particularly well
Ken - Well, how can I put it? Ah yes, this bastard needs to die, along with his new, best friend Mr Priest. His scene with Bart was effective at showing how far gone he was too. I can’t say I like this twist though.
Mr Priest - You can tell Tudyk’s having fun in this role.
The Rowdy 3 - This quartet remains a lot of fun.
Todd and Amanda - This resolved their plot well and left the door open in the future.
Friedkin - He started an idiot, stayed an idiot and died almost sorting himself out There could be more going on if it continues.
Suzie - Up yours, you psychopathic feckwit.
Farah - Got a good amount of the story and the bit where the gang go, ‘who could kill a demonic mage?’, then conclude it was Farah was funny.
The Mage - A bit of a different role for John Hannah. It’s notable that the Mage is the way he is because he was created by a kid, so of course he’ll be a psychopathic bastard, with no depth whatsoever, unlike Suzie who has no excuse for what she ends up as.
Couple of things both series did well was avoid a lack of padding, the number of episodes felt right for the story. Second, the S2 finale didn’t do what the S1 finale did - which was to continue on 10 minutes too long in a blatantly obvious ‘set-up-the-cliffhanger-for-the-next-series’ section.
