Luther has never been popular in this forum.

Seems like those who do watch fly to England via the internet to catch those airings than wait to watch them on BBC America.

Not sure, but I believe this is the 1st season Luther will be in HD on Directv. The previous 2 seasons that I caught it was in SD.

Can't wait.

Season 1 was perfect and Season 2 was great.

Hopefully a blu-ray set will be released after this and he makes the Luther movie he is planning.

DVD comes out September 10th, 1 week after the BBC America premiere. No Blu-Ray

I believe this premiered in the UK yesterday.

I'm going to dive in to the first 2 season on Netflix this weekend I think.

I have heard the first episode was fantastic.

First episode was pretty good. It setup what looks to be a very interesting final series before the movie.

Don't watch it on Netflix if you can help it, they have the 50 minute edits not the full 60 min episodes.

Well that's unfortunate since I burned through them all yesterday and today. Why are the cut?

Also... was Ruth Wilson's name ever thrown around in hypothetical discussions for the casting of Harley Quinn / Poison Ivy? Man she'd be a good choice if it ever happened. I can't be the first person to bring that up.

The BBC America airings from what I recall were usually about 70 minutes with commercials.

I'm in no rush to see season 3. It's only 2 months away to see them on TV here in the States. Plus, the season is so freaking short anyways at only 4 episodes. So what's the rush?

Re: Luther Season 3 -- Fall 2013 (BBC America)
 
S1 & S2 episodes premiered in 75-minute timeslots (which is what BBCA has done for many 60-minute BBC dramas in the past), so S3 will likely also air that way.

If anyone wants to go half and half ($12) with the Region 2 release, send me a pm.

You will have it no later than August 10th and you can keep it.

I won't spoil anything but episode 2 of the new series wasn't so great. Luther is silly and over the top but always done well enough to forgive. This episode was nothing but plot holes, clichés, and very very very bad policework.

skacore, how are you watching? I didn't think it hit BBC America until later. I was excited that Alice is supposed to be back, since Luther's "relationship" with her was the best of Luther for me. But, from what I've read elsewhere, she apparently isn't in the season much as it's only 4 episodes and she wasn't in the first 3.

Episode 3 was intense!

It doesn't air on BBC America until September 3rd, so you figure it out.

To me that has always been Luther though so I don't mind the goofiness.

I stopped after episode 1 of the new season but I am still looking forward to going through the series.

Lol. How I watch is a no no to post. Google and a little effort will provide you with wonderful results.

I will probably watch it tonight but tempted to wait for Tuesday and watch both at once.

I still have to finish the 4 episodes of season 2 from Netflix. I'm in no hurry to see season 3 yet. Will wait until the BBC America airings.

I watched all 4 episodes and was actually pretty disappointed, especially towards the end.

Spoiler:
I didn't enjoy the whole Alice plot. I know that she is crazy and psychotic, but it almost felt like she was some kind of superhero.

Re: Luther Season 3 -- Fall 2013 (BBC America)
 
I just binged on all 4 eps, and I'm a bit disappointed as well. I mean the show is still solid, but it doesn't come close to reaching the superb second season. A lot of things started off strong, but fizzled at the end.

But one thing was unforgivable to me.

Spoiler:
Mary. Seriously. I could buy that Luther was love-sick in the first season because that was over his wife. A woman he married in his early 20s. There was history there. But this whole Mary subplot felt so contrived. She was the Princess Peach of this season. Introduced solely to give Luther motivation, which was unnecessary because Justin's death should be enough. And before we got to this point, who was this woman to be demanding shit from Luther about his past? Pump your brakes lady, he just met you. It felt like this show wanted us to feel like these two were in a 16 month relationship that had gone serious, instead of having just met.


Actually, the more I think about it the more I disliked. I do think this show did a superb job in the first episode. I don't usually get tense during the murders on Luther, but I totally was during the first killer's scenes. They were shot really well.

One more spoilery bit, comparing the first and third seasons.

Spoiler:
Did anyone else feel like there was a lot of rerun stuff going on? You have a Older killer taking on a protege to carry out further murders in both seasons. You have Luther on the run at the end of the season. You have Luther being aided by Alice when on the run. You have Luther's lady put in peril. And you have Luther not really taking down the bad guy, but Alice doing it in both seasons.

Yeah, that got a bit out of hand.

Spoiler:
I did like seeing the character again. She added some much needed sizzle into the not so exciting Punisher plot. But I'm not the biggest fan on how she was used in this season.
