Advertisements Note that even though Luther's Season 2 starts on Wednesday on BBC America, the original air date is shown as being in June 2011 (I assume when it originally aired in Britain). Thus, a First Run Only Season Pass will not record any episodes. Adjust accordingly. Note: It appears that the show is being fit into a 1-hour slot. If it ran almost 1 hour with no commercials in Britain, that means that there is some alteration for BBCA. The first season ran in a 1.35 hour slot. I note that while the first episodes of The Hour also ran in a 1.25 hour slot to accommodate the 1-hour British version, the final episodes also ran in a 1 hour slot. On iTunes, the episodes showed up as running 58 minutes to 1 hour, so it appears something was cut for BBCA. If the same thing is happening here, I'll pay the $16 to iTunes (and get HD also).
