This is easily one of the best shows I have ever seen. The description may make it sound like a trope but it's delivery is anything but. You follow conflicted investigator ( Idris Elba )through his life while he interrogates criminals and skirts the gray areas of the legal system in order to truly bring justice to those people who are bad while dealing with his own turmoil.

You have heard that pitch before, you've seen that show before but i promise you after you finish episode 1 you will be starving for more. Think about that, normally pilots give you a sense of the potential for a program... this one hooks you right in the belly its ending bridge scene has some of the best natural/unnatural dialog ever written for dramatic TV.

Very rarely do I get addicted to a show after one episode, but you can't but love Luther. Idris delivers a knockout performance and is just brilliant. With DCI Luther you are never quite sure what you are going to get but you know it will be something special.

Excellent. Idris Elba is absolutely brilliant as Luther, and the rest of the cast don't let him down. One of the best shows in its genre.

Unlike others I am not enchanted by Luthor. Its decent but its also a slog to get through.
