Luther - BBC Page 6

    Thought the killer was a bit shit really. Just went around hacking and eating folks for no particular reason. They normally flesh them out better.

    I couldn't really give a shit if that plastic surgery duck face woman drowned so I was probably never going to like 2 episodes based around it (tenuously).

    Definitely some of the weakest eps of the whole show for me.

    And the JOHN SNOWWWWWWWWWW woman was a let down.

    yeah i'd never watched a luther before. enjoyed the first episode, but then it got so silly. had to laugh when the killer started wearing a dress to add to his list of cliches. if he'd only survived a couple more scenes we could have seen him with a skin mask, wielding a chainsaw.

    You should watch the earlier series, they are much better.

    I concur with the general sentiment, this special has been utter shite but the previous series were great.

    The two parter with The Game was the best Luther story for me.

    Not sure how I feel about this special yet though. :/

    I really enjoyed it. Seemed a bit sudden how Alice was killed off just like that but it was great otherwise.

    Haven't watched the second episode yet, the first was so bad. I will do at some point just to round it off.

    Shame as the first three series were fucking superb!

    Latest Luther was great. Last series (the two partner) was shit so this was a surprise.

    Interesting that Stringer Bell has lost his Baltimore accent.

    I've just watched the very first episode of this to see what all the fuss is about. Erm... its really really bad. Like one of the most badly written things I've ever seen. It's so fucking stupid. Does it pick up or is the first episode a decent indication of what it's like?

    @Decks the very first episode? The first couple of series are quite entertaining

    The series that was just on (5) was pretty poor to be honest though

    Yeah the first one. I'm pretty forgiving with stuff but the stupid just kept racking up. Like he knew she was a pyscho two minutes into meeting her because she didn't yawn when he did? What? And the whole dialogue between him and pyscho lady was really bad. Or when he smashed the wooden door to bits like a fucking yeti. The whole thing was like a parody.

    I enjoyed this one far more than the previous - but if you didnít like the first ep then later ones wonít change mind.

    Loofah kicks a LOT of doors open TBH. If you're a fan of door integrity, don't watch this

    Yeah I watched the first couple of the first series recently, and gave up. The whole arch nemesis, sexual tension thing with the weird looking woman he'd just met was so completely instant and unearnt it made the whole thing ridiculous. Found the tone very weird as well, very gritty and dark but kind of arch and camp at the same time. Very disappointing.

    Yeah exactly, nothing was earned between him and the crazy woman, it just felt really badly written. 5 minutes after meeting they're nemesis reeling off hokey dialogue at each other.

    I'd love to tell you that the nonsense relationship with the crazy odd-looking woman doesn't go on for all 5 series, or if it did, it gets fleshed out into anything which makes any sense.

    Really love to

    I like it when he's fighting ridiculous comic book borderline horror movie killers. I am much less interested in his personal life.

    Same, who doesn't enjoy a nice wank over an over-the-top serial killing. I like that all other police are stupids and Loofah just doesn't Play By Anyone's Rules But His Own
