Luther, Season 4 Review




Luther is one of the better detective dramas in recent TV. When the first season aired, it grabbed a lot of fans instantly but Idris Elba is a busy guy and in later seasons it kind of affected the show. That was kind of present in the most recent, two episode season of Luther.

Since it was only two episodes it seems like they tried to cram a lot of story lines into a small amount of time. If you're a fan from the beginning, you have to watch but you might find yourself lost in the shuffle. In this season, Luther has to investigate the murder of a friend, track down a serial killer, and fend off hit-men. It seemed like they needed more time but didn't have it. The main character of the show played by Elba, is someone fans are interested in the way they follow heroes from comic books. He's even got his own costume if you picture Luther in his overcoat he seems to own a few of.

It's not that we don't want Elba to be too busy to play his most well known role, but if it gets in the way of the shows creativity it might be time to let Luther go. Again, if you're a fan of the show you're going to watch it anyway but don't expect it to have the impact the first two seasons had.

Luther is available on +Netflix US & Canada  if you want to run through it while there is nothing on TV, or you can check it out on Amazon by clicking the above image.
