I was on Netflix recently, looking for something to watch. I am hooked on the BBC show Sherlock, and have always been a sucker for British shows. I was looking through my Netflix suggestions and this show Luther pops up. It stars Idris Elba as the title character. It’s a police procedural, which I always enjoy, so I decided to give it a try.
Well, let me tell ya, I love this show. I was hooked after watching the first episode. I have always been a fan of Idris Elba since he was on The Wire and will give anything with his name attached a shot. He is brilliant as DCI John Luther. Luther is a detective who sees things other cops don’t see. He really gets into the heads of the criminals he chases, almost to a fault. His obsession often gets himself and those close to him, in trouble.
The supporting cast is really good. They really help breathe life into the show. I was engrossed in each episode, on the edge of my seat. The drama was very intense and always left me wanting more.
The sad thing is, there are only three seasons of this award winning show. The first season had 6 episodes, and the second and third seasons have 4 episodes each. It kinda sucks there are so few episodes of such a great show. If you are a fan of Idris Elba, you will love this show. So, watch this NOW. Laters
