A brilliant British crime drama about a genius detective filled with bombastic ire, Luther is definitely one of my favorite shows. The progression of DC John Luther over the course of 2 seasons have been very engaging and also saddening at times. I can’t wait for the 3rd season. The cast is superb and the plots are well-driven.
^ This… I cant see anyone else as Blade except Snipes. Still waiting for Marvels/Spike lee’s version of a marvel hero team up - Blade (wesley snipes), Power man (Michael Jai White) and Black panther (idris) lol… that would be awesome.
I don’t consider loving and wanting to get back to his wife of **18 years **something that would negate his anti-pussy. The fact that he got in that position was because he was neglecting her for his job.
I very much enjoyed it. Being from London myself, it was great recognizing the settings! The crimes are genuinely terrifying and the tension gets revved up quite high in the race to stop the villains
The bad: This program can be so stupid at times, like almost 24 level of stupid. The villans aside from Alice are IMO completely non-threatening and soft. You want to see a good exmaple of threatening/intimidating? Look at Martin Schenk
Luther as a character is fantastic and Idris Elba plays it well. So well, in fact that the programme wouldn’t be worth watching if he weren’t in it. Some of the things Luther does IMO elevate him to an almost Bauer-like status
Idris is a damn fine actor, was hoping for more Alice/Luther scenes this season. I didn’t think the bad guys in this season was all that interesting this season, but the last episode made up for it. As disappointing as having a short season, its awesome seeing long high quality episodes (even though I just complained about the bad guys)
