      I didn’t have a clue that a Dirk Gently series was coming out until I saw the video. I haven’t read the book but the series looks like fun—if I can get past seeing Elijah Wood as Frodo all the time. 😉 I can’t wait for the new season of Sherlock, and despite some problems with representation, I’m really looking forward to Dr. Strange.
