So I was seeing when season 3 of Luther is supposed to start and discovered that season 3 is expected to set up a movie!
I also remember reading that the producers were thinking about giving Alice a stand alone series that follows her journey through America after Luther sprung her from the institution. The storyline/premise sounded too much like Dexter though.
All time: The Sopranos, The Simpsons, Seinfeld, Batman: The Animated Series
Now: Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, Luther, and I really enjoyed the first season of House of Cards. Took me about 2 episodes to get over the Zach Morris/Saved by the Bell speaking into the camera style, and the episodes directed by that hack Schumacher were iffy, but overall it's very well put together and Spacey and the guy who plays Congressman Russo should be in strong consideration for Emmys.
I've only seen about 3 episodes and not in order, I've been meaning to actually catch more. From what I've seen it looks like a quality show.
It took me a few weeks to get into The Americans. It's really dense, and because of all the secrets, a lot of the plot has exposed itself as flashback after the fact, or been exposed in some other capacity after the fact anyway.
But after getting into it, it's been really spectacular. Like boardwalk it melds in a little bit of real history, which is cool. The production quality, particularly as it relates to creating the early 80s era, is beyond reproach. And at this point I'm still finding myself surprised by the show from time to time. It's been a great experience, and I'm glad I stuck with it past that first episode, which felt a little dry to me. I got a similar dry vibe from the start of Game of Thrones, and was thrilled I stuck that out too.
In season 7 this show is still on fire. When this show kicked off and I started to love it I was hoping for 6 seasons. Last season I felt like it was slowing down a bit, and the delayed premier scared me into thinking it might be out of gas.
But thus far this season it seems to me like this show could make 10 seasons, a movie down the line, it really is amazing. It's because this show is not about the writing, not about the concept, it's about the chemistry.
James Roday and Dule Hill still have, without a doubt, the best chemistry on television.
