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.

I LOVED Luther series 1. and I thought all of the 6 episodes were quite good. As Series 1 ended, it left off with a cliffhanger and how most of us Luther fans want to see more that is totally what we will do. I have to say, I know and can tell that many people don't like Series 2, but i think that Series 2 is quite good and would fully recommend buying it. i will!
Alice Morgan is back in Series 2 and I happen to love Alice Morgan. The situations that Luther comes across and pursues are quite good and I look forward to this Series 2 coming out on DVD and I look forward to Series 3. :) :) :)

I loved the first run, with scary Alice and unpredictable alliances. The second series did not disappoint except that four episodes didn't seem like enough. I hoping to see Luther in a season 3 soon!

Luther 2 was shorter than what I had anticipated but the character development is still great. Understanding that Luther is going through a period of mourning after Ep6 Luther 1, he's trying to find himself/his center of being in his crazy maze of a life. Nevertheless, he is who he is and he lives among his work.

I didn't like characterization of serial killers...too young, to predictable, wish they were more edgy/freaky/weird. Boys just out of puberty attempting to be serial killers...did not make me quiver at all.

I missed Alice...love the banter between she and Luther. What flavor they add to the show. We need her back in a big way in Luther 3 and there will be a Luther 3.

If you love good acting, character development and awesome shots of London you will like Luther 2.

If you love detective stories, especially one where the detective is truly interesting, then you will fall head over heels with "Luther". The first in the series was shocking and you couldn't take your eyes off the screen. You may think you know what to expect in the second series, then BAM!, from the start it hooks you again and reels you in. The serial killers are truly phenomenal and Luther's relentless sleuthing is fascinating. I hope they bring back his "friend" from time to time. And the other detectives add extra spice. The only problem is that the series is too short. There should be 10 to 13 episodes, not 4 or 6. (I probably wouldn't be satisfied; I'd want more!) I hope Luther is here to stay for a very long time. Whereas I was kind of a fan of Idris Elba before, here he has the chance to shine and he's like the sun!

What can I say. I have alwAys been a big fan of Idris Elbe and police/ mysteries. Nothing better as far as I'm concerned. I've especially loved British mysteries and have watched for 48 years consistently. Everyone asks me to recommend and Luther is always #1.

Charismatic and honest Luther's detective and real life intertwine in somewhat less than realistic events, and who'd want anything else? Almost all main characters are brilliantly acted, and Ruth Wilson plays a delectably vicious Alice. Idris Alba is obviously a strong presence. Hope he'll be the next Bond.
