The show draws a parallel between my other favorite shows Law and Order SVU and CI. In fact, DCI Luther reminds me so much of Detective Goren on L& O: CI. Both are extremely brilliant and borderline weird at times but I absolutely love it. Two thumbs up. I only had 2 itty bitty problems with the show: only 4 episodes per season. Four!! I understand the whole idea of quality over quantity but come on!! Four episodes is just too little. Hope they add on a few more episodes in season 3, fingers crossed. The other issue I had with the show was the accent. I barely understood what the was being said on a few occasions (lol) but that was quickly remedied by the 10second play back button on Netflix.
With all that said, I have to bring up an unrelated but related gripe I have and that is Law and Order: UK. WHAT is that? As I already mentioned, L&O: SVU, CI and the original (in that order) are my favorite all time TV shows. The story lines are so good so it baffles me as to how the same show, albeit a different location, but the same premise can suck so much? I want to like it however, L&O: UK is just...sigh.
