Saw first series and had to get all of them. Worth the time.

If your DVD player has subtitles or close captioning, it is good to have on because of British accents and some slang words.

Gritty crime drama. Bad cops and worse cops. Wonderful acting by many of the players although how the villain ever got any acting job is beyond me. Idris Elba is wonderful, so this series is a must-see for his fans.

Theme music is hard on the ears, our hero is easy on the eyes. Recommended by my librarian but not by me, the plot of prostitutes, gang violence, and crooked cops was more gritty and noir than i wanted. Luther's horrible friends and crappy life seem related to bad choices he made in season one, which i have not seen. It had its moments, the final episode was good.

The second part was not as good as the firs but the acting is excellent.

A great dark detective series! Nothing is black and white in this show: many of the characters teeter between good and evil, which makes them real, human, and relatable. Must watch!

Great series. I thought Luther 1 had far more cohesion than the 2nd season. Missed Alice as she became the perfect counterpoint to Luther and the evolving of their relationship was a good part of Luther 1. Twin brothers in Luther 2 seemed a little too far out and the violence of their actions needed a base - where did it come from? Also in Luther 1 you saw the evolution of DS Ripley into a Luther supporter. In Luther 2 the new DS who's brought on board doesn't buy in and it feels like a detriment to the overall movement of the show. In the Wire In the Blood series for example, the team needs to establish and re-establish itself as characters change. Watch any cop drama and this happens. Four episodes (just 2 really) aren't enough to re-establish the new team. Look forward to Luther 3

This series is amazing! The characters and the acting is great. The story-line is one shock after another. Some of the eps in this series left me breathless.
