    Thinking about starting "Luther" via Netflix.

    Yeah or Neah?

    One of the best cop shows I've ever seen. Idris Elba is so good.

    Worth watching. Though it's hardly a big investment of your time to watch considering how short the "seasons" are.

    I thought the first season was brilliant, but when I heard what they were doing in the second, I knew the show had already jumped the shark.

    Then the second season was brilliant too.

    (I refer to
    bringing back Alice.)

    a HUGE yeah!

    There's only 10 total episodes (6 for season one and 4 for season 2), so not a massive investment.

    Season 3 is being made now. Not sure how many episodes, but it's great drama.

    Season 3 is supposedly only 4 episodes if I'm remembering correctly.

    Season 2 was really only two episodes...two two-hour movies each divided in two for broadcast.

    Another thumbs up for Luther, one of the better British imports.
    I also really loved Whitechapel which didn't get a lot of love.

    Idris Elba pulls off a British accent perfectly, by the way. After first seeing him in The Wire, I was shocked at how well he could do the British accent.

    Nah, he sounds pretty phony to me.

    Nothing like Alistair Cooke!

    :D

    4 episodes in for me now...like it alot. Idris Elba is fantastic, and i enjoyed his run in the Wire too.

    only drawback for me is trying to understand the dialogue completely with the british accents. but i guess subtitles can fix that. but can't these people just speak english, for cripe sake! :)

    He was really easy to understand in Prometheus. He was also very boring -- completely miscast. I always have subtitles on, what I don't really understand is why Netflix doesn't have a way of "remembering" this preference.

    I never had trouble understanding Luther, or most of them, actually. But that other detective... the young guy? I really had to pay attention to him, and still missed some of it. I think he's Scottish, but I'm not sure.
