Product Description

Idris Elba (The Wire, Thor) won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries for his riveting performance in this heart-pounding psychological drama. Elba stars as John Luther, the near-genius detective struggling with his own demons. Devastated by the brutal murder of his wife, Luther returns to policing in a different world. His old unit has gone and he's working in the newly created Serious and Serial unit, headed by former police complaints officer Martin Schenk. Luther quickly gathers together his team, rescuing his old partner, Detective Justin Ripley, from uniform. It's not long before they're dealing with their first case. A masked man wanders the streets of London, carrying out ritualistic murders in historic locations, working his way up to one final masterpiece... Crackling with energy and beautifully shot, this new mini-series sees Luther take bigger risks and face even darker challenges.

Fans of the smashing British crime procedural Luther won't want to miss the gripping second season, which resolves season one's nerve-wracking cliffhanger. But the second season wastes no time in dropping a vicious new evil into the path of DCI John Luther (the impeccable Idris Elba, never better) and the rest of the London homicide detectives. The newest bad guy is a phantom who wears a mask, committing random acts of violence and mayhem--"precisely to wake this country up," as he tells Luther in an untraceable phone call. As the coppers work feverishly to save one of their own, Luther is trying to rebuild his shattered personal life. His ex-wife is long in the past, and his relationship with the tender Alice (who is so nutters she's been hospitalized against her will) is slowly changing as well. Yet Elba's Luther is appealing precisely because of his humanity. When he breaks into a porn/human trafficking ring run by fearless kingpins from Eastern Europe, there's never a doubt that Luther will put himself directly into harm's way to protect a young woman who needs to be taken kicking and screaming (literally) into protection. And once again, the costar of Luther that's almost as memorable as Elba is the underbelly of London. It's not picturesque, it's not pastoral, and it's definitely not romantic--and yet the London of Luther pulses to its own heartbeat, which is as real and compulsively watchable as its hero. A note about season two: There are just four episodes in this boxed set, and no extras. But fans of the series won't want to miss any of it. --A.T. Hurley

After a hugely successful run in its first six hours, BBC's "Luther" returns for another go with four more episodes. Some have contended that "Luther" is unlike any other show on TV, and I'm not entirely sure that I would agree with this assessment. While "Luther" can certainly be wild and unpredictable, it is not breaking the mold of many other rogue cop hero shows that have populated the modern TV landscape. As the titular Detective John Luther, Idris Elba brings much passion, conviction, and gusto to the standard role of a cop who must sometimes cross the line to do what's right. But to the program's credit, Elba can be extremely erratic as well and does push the notion of a "good" cop to an uncomfortable, and at times, violent level. It is this anything-may-happen feel that livens up even the most standard of cases. By the end of Season One, Luther had become absolutely unhinged and Elba had served up a performance that would be nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe award.

Season Two (again, this is only 4 episodes) may not be quite as strong as the previous offering, but it is still solidly entertaining television. The first two episodes deal with a serial murderer who liked to broadcast his crimes, while the last two dealt with a sociopath's increasingly violent crime spree. Of these two, the second was my favorite--as the case was twice as complicated as anyone suspected and the grisly crimes were, literally, being decided on the roll of a dice. There was such a palpable sense of randomness, the danger and tension were ratcheted up considerably. Both had their highpoints and both had moments of implausibility, but the show is done with such conviction--it's hard not to get wrapped up in the mayhem.

You know the old joke about the women complaining about the food at a restaurant in the Catskills? "This food is terrible," says one. "Yes," agrees her companion, "and the portions are so small."

Luther is like that joke in reverse. "This show is so great, but the portions are too small."

Do four episodes really constitute a season? I was left wanting more after the six episodes of the first season. What am I going to do until Season 3?

The lead character is an intriguing mix of deeply flawed humanity and world weariness -- a hero for our times. While I wish there had been more of his unlikely ally crazy Alice in this season, the finale holds out the hope that she will reappear in Season 3. I can hardly wait.

More, more!

Luthur the first season (6 episodes) was TV watching at it's finest. Idris Elba is one of the few men I believe my wife would leave me for! What charm, what grace what talent! Idris Elba literally sets the screen on fire. If you loved him in The Wire (and you should have) then you are in for a real treat in both seasons 1 and 2 of Luther.
Now I get that two episodes is "not a season" but 180 minutes of great writing and great acting and great stories is worth every cent of 25 bucks! There isn't a mainstream movie out there right now worth the time or the money but two or three nights with Idris and company is worth buttering up the corn.
I don't usually write reviews in response to other reviews but anything less than 5 stars for this show is just sour grapes and I'd hate for people who loved The Wire and Downtown Abbey and Garrow's Law to name but a few current 5 star efforts to miss this one.
