SPOILERS for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Last week on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, holistic detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his sidekick Todd (Elijah Wood) ended up in the clutches of the nefarious Gordon Rimmer (Aaron Douglas) and his drones. But by episode’s end, the duo appeared to be on the verge of escaping via a time machine! Todd’s sister Amanda (Hannah Marks) was furious with him for lying about having had Pararibulitis, a debilitating genetic disorder she’s currently suffering from, so she left with The Rowdy 3. It’s unclear where Farah (Jade Eshete) was after being knocked out by the droned Agent Weedle (David Lewis). Detective Estevez (Neil Brown, Jr.) figured out that Lydia’s soul had been swapped with Gordon’s corgi Rapunzel (Bentley the dog). Holistic assassin Bartine (Fiona Dourif) and her sidekick Ken (Mpho Koaho) decided to try to find Dirk Gently again, but not try to kill him next time.

Here’s a recap of what happened this week on Episode 1.7 “Fix Everything”…

SPOILERS for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Last week on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, holistic detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his sidekick Todd (Elijah Wood) followed the map left by Patrick Spring to unearth items that once pieced together create a machine, one in which Gordon Rimmer (Aaron Douglas) and his followers are searching for. Todd admitted to Dirk that he never had Pararibulitis, the genetic disorder his sister Amanda (Hannah Marks) currently suffers from. Missing persons detectives Estevez and Zimmerfield found dead bodies at the Animal Transfer Unit at the Seattle Zoo where Gordon had worked; Gordon’s men showed up and shoot and killed Zimmerfield. Farah witnessed this, and killed one of the attackers, and saw Gordon driving away with Lydia Spring. Amanda went for a ride with the Rowdy 3, who were then accosted by CIA operatives Riggins and Friedkin, but they all got away. Holistic assassin Bartine and her sidekick Ken made their way to Seattle looking for Dirk Gently.

SPOILERS for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Last week on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, holistic detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his sidekick Todd (Elijah Wood) followed clues left by murdered millionaire Patrick Spring that led them to uncover several things: a device that it seems Gordon Rimmer (Aaron Douglas) and his fellow soul-swappers are after; a message from Spring telling them to save his missing daughter Lydia (Alison Thornton); and a treasure map, which will set Dirk and Todd off on a new adventure. The missing persons detectives searching for Lydia find Gordon’s corgi Rapunzel (Bentley the dog), and realized that she is somehow connected to their case. Gordon kills Sammy, the lover of dead rock star Lux DuJour, whose body he possessed for nearly two decades, and tells his people that he’s going to “take back control.”

SPOILERS for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Oh Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, how I love thee!!! It’s hands down my favorite new show this Fall, and I eagerly away a return to its universe each Saturday night. This week, we hit the mid-way mark on the 8-episode Season 1 from writer/creator Max Landis, but before we get into that, where’s what’s happened so far…

Holistic detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his formerly reluctant but now willing assistant Todd (Elijah Wood) are trying to solve the murder case of millionaire Patrick Spring, all while being watched by the FBI, CIA, and missing persons detectives. Along to help are Spring’s self-depreciating security chief Farah (Jade Eshete), who had been held captive by a cultish group of bald tattooed men, and Todd’s ill sister Amanda (Hannah Marks), who is being stalked by a group of crazed energy-sucking vampires known as the Rowdy 3. Dirk and Todd discovered that Spring’s missing daughter Lydia (Alison Thornton) was at the home of Gordon Rimmer (Aaron Douglas), a member of the cult that was able to swap girl’s soul with the corgi Rapunzel’s (played by Bentley the dog). Meanwhile, out in the world somewhere near is a holistic assassin named Bartine (Fiona Dourif), who also has her own formerly reluctant but now willing assistant Ken Mpho Koaho), and she’s out to kill Dirk. Just as more pieces of the puzzle seemed to fall into place, Dirk got a blast from the past — CIA operative Colonel Riggins (Miguel Sandoval) arrives to bring Dirk and the other “Black Wing” subjects with ESP back into the fold, much to Dirk’s dismay and objection.

Here’s a recap of what happened this week on Episode 1.4 “Watkin”…

NYCHFF 2016 Logo

For the 14th straight year, the New York City Horror Film Festival (NYCHFF) opened last night. Started by the late Michael J. Hein, the NYCHFF is the largest and most recognized film festival to deal solely in the horror and sci-fi genres. It is running through Sunday, November 13th at the Cinepolis Chelsea, 260 West 23rd Street, in Manhattan. The festival screens approximately 50-60 films each year, welcomes horror legends, and honors the best work with an award ceremony. After a fairly disappointing week, I showed up last night to take in six (!) total horror films: two very good feature films, and four incredible shorts.

Check it out below.
