I heard about Luther, a new crime drama from the BBC a while ago and decided to take a look. It showed up on Netflix recently, and when I recognize anything new I jump on it. That happens so infrequently on Netflix up here.
I went in hoping that it would be another Sherlock, but it never really hit the mark. All the important bits are practically telegraphed along the way and setting up an arch-enemy for the protagonist in the very first episode seems a little desperate.
That being said, I’ll watch the entire series, since it’s a sensible six episodes long. Hopefully it finds its way quickly and becomes something more than an over-the-top action adventure.
Incidently, Sherlock is also on Netflix now and I suggest anyone with an account go watch it, instead of this, immediately.
