    HAVE anyone watcher luther series?
    Let me be clear, I despise police or detective shows. It just doesn't do it for me. They throw in a new criminal each episode to fill up most of the time and add a little bit of main story progression at the very end of the episode, leaving it to the season finale to wrap things google play services app up in ONE good episode.

    Luther does not do this. Luther is a ride that relentlessly takes you through a thick plot minecraft pe free download. The story is compelling and realistic. The acting is of class (I really like Idris Elba). The music choice at certain parts of the show is so fitting that a smile makes its way on my face amidst the gruesome storyline. I just think this show is spectacular.

    I understand that for a lot of viewers, counter strike 1.6 download certain scenes of this show are difficult to watch. I consider myself capable of handling some pretty nasty stuff, but some parts even got to me. I applaud this show for being the first one in many years to give me that effect.

    I would recommend this show to anyone. I truly hope it continues.

    “Despise”? Perhaps “dislike” would be more appropriate.

      Post 1 is a direct lift from an IMDB review.

        And again there are hypertext links in the text. Time for a ban?

          What is going on? Copy and pasting from IMDB etc is just weird, and we have a had a number of these type of threadstarters. Why bother?

            Why bother indeed. But what can we do about it?

            They all seem to be connecting from different places so we can’t block them. Not if we want to leave the forum open to most people.

            i just hope they get fed up before we do

              The copy and pasting is annoying, but some of the links could be dangerous. If you can't ban, would it not be a good idea to at least delete the threads rather than just closing them?

                Where I see a link to somewhere dodgy (which is basically a link to anywhere “off topic” that isn’t to do with British films) then I remove the links, often by replacing the linked text with plain text.

                If I was to remove the link at the start of this thread, it would remove the whole thread and all the posts in it.

                  In the absence of anything else I hadn't seen on iPlayer, I started to watch the first series of Luther. It was incredible, in the true sense of the word, that a detective could befriend a girl who just shot and murdered her entire family but was released due to zero evidence. She wasn't even forensically checked at the scene for gunpowder residue on her clothing etc etc. Then he wants to use her in another episode to help him solve another case involving another psycho. I was expecting something entertaining and ended up switching this piffle off. If you're doing a cop show, at least make it realistic and believable.

                      I thought it was excellent. Holes in the plot, I accept, but Idris and Ruth Wilson make it compelling

                        Agreed. No need to overthink things, I'm happy to go with the flow if I'm being entertained.

                          I agree too. I’ve watched all the Luther series and thoroughly enjoyed them. It’s a TV drama, not a police documentary. There’s plenty of those to watch if you want the real thing. Me personally, I prefer a bit of escapism

                            Just been watching the latest season, I'm three episodes in. Same old flaws, same old strengths- I will definitely be sitting down for the rest ce soir

                              My goodness we've come a long way from George Dixon tracking down some old spinster's escaped budgie or scolding some scallywag for apple-raiding.

                              Luther is modern, gripping, high octane, edge-of-the-seat action and Idris Elba is nothing short of magnificent.

                              But.... (and for me it's a big But)....

                              Whilst I can forgive/overlook certain plot holes in the name of entertainment, there's one thing I can't accept. And I hardly dare say it for the wrath that will no doubt descend upon me...

                              Ruth Wilson. Poor, unconvincing overacting of a beyond credibility psycho character. Oh dear. Just...well, nearly (but thankfully not quite) spoils it for me. If she was sinister in a Mrs Baylock sort of way then OK. But she isn't. Not remotely scary, Alice simpers along with that sort of "duck-face" pout that slips of girls tend to do, prior to some laughable Buffy/Lara Croft style slice of improvised genius. Sorry, just can't and never could buy it I'm afraid.

                              I think one reason I fail to embrace the character (which I do acknowledge many other viewers laud as a highlight of the series) is because, when I first encountered Luther, it was in a particularly riveting - and frightening - episode which did not feature her at all. I was hooked and having sought out the first ever episode, made sure I watched them all. To my heart-sinking dismay I quickly realised that this irritating and implausible character was a recurring mainstay.

                              The sort of disappointment I imagine a Doctor Who fan might experience if they discovered that series via one of the old thrillers like "The Daemons" or "Terror Of The Zygons" only to familiarise themselves with the canon and discover these supposedly intimidating but laughable giant pepperpots made of egg-whisks, sink plungers and tennis balls are what everyone else seems to love.
