    Luther...

    I've been watching a new show Luther. It's on the BBC and it's amazing! The writing is awesome, the acting is top notch, and each new episode is better than the last.

    Has anyone else seen this show before?

    Love it. Idris Elba (aka Stringer Bell from The Wire) is one of the best actors out there.

    OMG! I totally forgot about that! He was Stringer Bell! I didn't like The Wire that much, but he is a great actor. I also really like Ruth Wilson as Alice.

    I love Luther, great show. The funny thing is that I remember him well from The Wire and a few episodes of The Office, but had no idea the he was British. When I watched the first episode of Luther, I was like, "Not a very good accent there Stringer Bell." Then checked imdb.com and realized he was actually British. Once I knew he wasn't doing a different voice, something clicked and I was pleasantly surprised with his accent, acting and the show. I can't imagine watching The Wire now and not hearing his true voice.

    He does a perfect American accent. Much better than McNulty's!

    I always thought Dominic West was hiding a New England accent when acting as McNulty on "The Wire" and learned later he was British as well. I like the other BBC show that he's in "The Hour" as well.
