In this exclusive clip from tomorrow night’s installment of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Todd (Elijah Wood) and Amanda (Hannah Marks) finally meet again while in Wendimoor, and through their (respective) motley crews, they come to see connections they hadn’t before.
With the series’ familiarly loopy aesthetic—the “confrontation” in the clip calls to mind Game of Thrones and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, shot with a surrealist ray gun—and even more familiarly loopy dialogue—that “Who’s on First?”-style exchange over the bed and the bathtub is just… beyond—the scene captures what Paste’s Alexis Gunderson calls its “strangely comforting absurdity.” Now c’mon, Toad, let’s get moving! There’s only a scant handful of episodes left in Dirk Gently’s second season.
Here’s the network’s synopsis of the episode, titled “This Is Not Miami”:
Lost in Wendimoor, Dirk has a crisis of confidence, as he and Todd struggle with hostile natives, deadly misunderstandings, and very literally, evil knights.
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America.
