So as a fan of british tv, and a fan of Stringer Bell, I have decided to watch LUTHER.
So far, good decision.

I've been following The Killing now for 13 weeks, and to make an analogy...

If watching The Killing is like staring at a flickering dying votive candle, watching Luther is like staring directly into the sun.

Both homicide detective shows, but about as polar opposite as you can get. Luther is completely over the top, lurid, and a little wacky. It is well done, and a great change of pace. I recommend watching it to wash the taste of the killing finale out of your mouth.

Is this show 1 mystery per ep?

Im tired of that. I like the concept of Killing where the whole season is the mystery, except that the Killing did suck ass

There are continuing storylines, but also there are per-episode investigations (structure similar to fringe)

Elba kills it anytime he's on screen.

Also, you should watch episode five immediately.

so many times you have an internally tortured cop, teetering on the edge of madness. It's a total fucking cliche. But... it completely and totally works here. The man is a walking volcano. Would tune in just for that.

But the psycho bitch makes it even better.

Alright, I'll give it another shot....just felt there some cheesy lines I couldn't handle in episode 2. I let them slide in the "pilot" because it happens, but when they continued I got annoyed. :hsd:

Will finish season 1 and reserve further judgment until then.
