(Spoiler alert) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luther_(TV_series)

DCI John Luther (Idris Elba) is an obsessed and sometimes violent police detective who doesn't always do things by the books as he investigates serial murders while entangling himself with crime figures and a beautiful pyschopathic murderer woman Alice Morgan  (Ruth Wilson) who becomes obsessed with Luther.   There has been 20 episodes over five different season/ series with the fifth season leaving a cliffhanger and bringing the show full circle.   It is a dark crime thriller written and created by Neil Cross.  It delves into the same gritty dark areas that Criminal Minds and Millennium get into.  John Luther often leaves his superiors in the dark and gets his partners involved with the bending of the law while working the case.  Luther  is brilliantly played by Idris Elba and I hope a sixth season is getting made soon (instead of a feature film that Cross and Elba want to make (where they tried to get a prequel film together years ago after the first three seasons aired).

Idris Elba is an awesome actor, and bet this is a good show.  I haven't watched it and barely remember hearing about it.  Definitely may check it out now that it's been brought to my attention again.  Sure looks intense.    Wow, starting season 5 this year and I haven't seen one previous episode.  What's weird is they skipped 4 years between season 4 and 5, and how few episodes in each.

That's BBC for you with small episode runs for seasons and years between seasons while people work on other projects

Actually I watched Luther for the first time 2 nights ago! What a coincidence! I found they had the first season on iplayer so I was able to start at the beginning.

Idris Elba was an excellent actor in the The Wire, I thought he was good in this too, but the writer let him down. I guessed the killer within minutes, and about 3 other plot points in no time, so I hope it gets better! I'm usually hopeless with mysteries, especially Midsomer Murders.

Edit... I was so foolishly wrong in my thoughts above.

For sure I am going to watch at least season 1 of Luther, and check out The Wire.  Never saw it either.  Just read that it's another TV series (2002-08), and missed it since it aired on HBO, that I don't have.  May not because it's about drugs and cops, not my favorite subjects.  Give me mysteries, profiling, true stories, and SciFi.  Not impressed with modern comedy, rather watch the older stuff, for example, Robin Williams in RV.  That movie was hysterical, or Christmas Vacation.  Randy Quaid  owned that movie.  And the list goes on.......

      Hi! Curiosity brought me home! 
      It it seems like masks are a great way of protecting oneself from the COVID-19 Coronavirus by protecting others, and hopefully the follow suit. 
      But also, it could be a great way of sharing your fandom.
      I’m sad to see there aren’t masks to buy, but I thought a black mask with the white  ouroboros would be a good start. A partial ouroboros like on the masthead for M-TIWWA would be good too, especially if it had some series quotes like, THIS IS WHO WE ARE, THE TIME IS NEAR, THE TIME IS NOW, and others. 
      I checked the store and didnt see any there. Is anyone thinking of doing this?

      I just finished watching Season 3 of HBO's True Detective. I was absolutely hooked, the acting was really excellent and the atmosphere and storytelling were really compelling. This is definitely a series to be savoured late at night.
      Each season of True Detective is a stand-alone anthology with an ensemble cast, so you don't need to have seen the previous seasons. I love this format, very much like the brilliant Fargo, except in Fargo (which deserves its own thread) there are a few tie-ins, nods and references to previous seasons and the original Cohen Brothers film. The downside with the format is that when it's such a great series and you really get to like and feel for the characters, you get hooked and just want more.
      Anyhoo, I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for more crime drama with that certain MillenniumisticTM feel!
