Netflix has been recommending I watch Luther, a BBC crime drama starring Idris Elba, for the past several weeks. I finally gave in and started watching. I was predisposed to like it since I really enjoyed Idris’ parts in The Wire.
But his bizarre courtship and just as bizarre not-romance with Alice is simultaneously hilarious and engaging. Two crazy people that clearly seem made for each other, but just as clearly would blow up in a fiery ball of doom if they were to get involved.
An amusing concept, and even moreso since they don’t drag it out for the sake of ratings. It is what it is and they don’t overplay it or go in unrealistic directions, given the characters.
