Started watching Luther after getting tired of some folks at work talk about it. It's the usual troubled & obsessive cop with a secret vs. a plethora of bad guys but the interesting dynamic is his ongoing pseudo-relationship with a seemingly infallible, female sociopath.
The characters are more key to enjoyment than the stories. Actually, the stories are pretty good but the constant foreshadowing is way too obvious for anyone with half a brain. However, the behavior of the primary antagonist is enough to keep me interested to watch more. Ruth Wilson plays a Very convincing arch-nemesis. A female Joker,if you will, but without the makeup and the giggles.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.
