Ed Grubermann: So, has he been in amovie where he doesn't sacrifice himself for the white person?
FROGSTOMPER: Didn't read the article...Why is Idris Elba so mad at this Gallagher fella? Did he smash his watermelon or something?
whatshisname: This has 6 comments so far. Something about Honey Boo Boo or the latest tart with a sex tape would have 100. Enough said.Luther is one of the best shows on TV and Elba makes it.
SilentStrider: I've just finally started watching the Wire (don't judge), and he's very good.
sirrerun: "Well, get on with it, motherfu..." BLAAM!
whatshisname: Luther is one of the best shows on TV and Elba makes it.
Vertdang: Ok, now... don't all shoot me at once...Idris Elba as Roland Deschain in the Dark Tower movie.
JerkStore: Based on recommendations here I've started watching "Luther." I've only seen the first two but I'm not impressed. Two cases where he solves them by glancing around the crime scene, says, "This isn't right," and has some insight based on only a vague hunch, and not only was he right, but it totally solves the case. Then he goes rogue and blunt forces the resolution against orders yet nobody gets angry and no disciplinary action, despite the fact he spent 7 months on suspension for letting a guy almost die.Oh, and for some reason he is now treating a psychopath double murderer who has tried to kill him and his wife, as a friend and confidant.I really want to like the show but the first few episodes are so formulaic and contrived and frankly unrealistic that I'm not digging it. Does it get better? I need a Breaking Bad replacement.
RoyBatty: Idris Elba is a very charismatic individual, regardless, Luther seasons one and two were some of the worst TV detective crap ever made. Season three is passable. He/They do end the series well in season three episode four.As TV detective fiction goes the stories are absurd, the killers absurd, the plot devices absurd, the investigations absurd, the relationships between Luther and everyone else absurd and everyone involved has to be stupid and insane to have any of it work.What you were watching was Idris Elba porn basically. High production values focused on a very charismatic actor, money shot after money shot, but shiat story underlying it all. A train wreck your ancient lemur brain cannot look away from.
