Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

I didn't even know it was out this year until I saw the trailer on Empire last night. 2 one hour long episodes. He's hunting down a cannibalistic Serial killer apparently.

Luther is ace.

 

Hope Alice makes an appearance.  She'd have her way with you and then stab you to bits. 

 

She's too busy smashing Mcnulty from The Wire.

I enjoyed it. Thought it started off a little slow but I thoroughly enjoyed the second half of it.

 

Idris is class. Wish Warren Brown was still in it, though. Fan of him. 

 

Gutted Alice is no longer in it. Always enjoyed her appearances.

 

Not sure if I like the new people Luther is working with. The women done my head in a bit.

Those Sky adverts really do him no favours but he can act.

 

I'm still not sure I should be watching, though

Warren Brown is/was in it. Also, it started slow? I thought that woman waiting for her husband scene was tense as fuck.

Agree, it was as tense as anything i can remember off TV for a while. Brilliantly filmed with nothing but the background noise.

 

...And who knew those Nokia's would still work 20 odd years after first being released.

Mental plot, but I thought it was ace. I wish Neil Cross would do some more Luther books as the one he has done is ace and the character is too good to just wither away.

It's about the protestant reformation in Europe. Fascinating to all the religious bods on here like Monty and Rico.

Idris Elba plays a detective that never solves any crimes because all witnesses he speaks to spend the entire time laughing at his charcoal pants.

Seriously though.

 

Yes, it is good. Very good. I recently rewatched them all again with the mrs and it stands up to a second viewing. It's quite dark, good cast and some great baddies. Here is a description I wrote earlier. And by wrote, I mean robbed off Wikipedia.

 

 

 

 

John Luther is a Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) working for the Serious Crime Unit in series one, and the new Serious and Serial Crime Unit in series two and three. A dedicated police officer, Luther is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes violent. However, Luther has paid a heavy price for his dedication; he has never been able to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals. For Luther, the job always comes first. His dedication is a curse and a blessing, both for him and those close to him

I like it but don't quite get why it received such high praise. The plots are silly, the show's internal logic is flawed and everyone lives in houses with wallpaper torn off the walls. Exactly how was Luther just allowed to pitch up and work again after fucking off to Dover for months?

Erm, yeah, thats maybe why he wasn't at work but Redknight's right; entertaining and good looking as it is it has a pretty lose hold on reality

Agreed mate, loved The Calling, the main antagonist was one of the most chilling characters i'd encountered for a long time.

It's not even remotely trying to be realistic though, is it?

Of course not, and it's the better for it obviously. Realism would see someone get murdered then we'd watch lab nerds watch hours of CCTV footage to track the killer down then they'd get arrested without an issue.

 

Sounds riveting.
