Dirk Gently S01 E01-05 - Forgot to mention this weirdly, as I think its my top recommendation at the moment.
American adaptions of British things often fail pretty hard, but this one seems to get the essence of the weirdness, even if the humor isn't quite as good.
Whats nice is the show doesn't spell anything out blatantly, and chucks a lot at you at once - as it should be for this. Its also weird in a laid back way, not "oh look I am quirky" so much as "oh, shark bite marks on the ceiling, I'll add that to the list..."
