Anybody else have trouble with English accents? I'm really liking the show, but it's like skim-reading a book. They clip words, speak fast, run things together. It can be really frustrating when you like a show.

I'm on episode 10 and am sorry there's only 14. I guess I can look at it like a really long movie?

Yes, I have this problem sometimes. Might help to rewatch episodes or watch with subtitles if they're available.

They just talk so bloody FAST.

I've only seen Luther about once, and totally forgot about it afterwards. But I now may look it up.

We don't pad out our TV shows with 200 episodes. It's the thing i love most about British TV. Sometimes you WANT to watch 200 episodes of some shows but it's nice that we know when to stop.

Yeah, when I'm speaking to Americans, I have to consciously slow down and enunciate every word. It's actually quite difficult to be that aware while communicating.

Anyways, Luther is the mutt's nuts - Give Alice her own series, tho. With John in the background.

Here's hoping for a movie.

And in many cases, we just plain can't afford it. There's a good reason Sherlock only has three episodes every 2/3 years. It'd bankrupt the BBC if they made any more.

I alway think how awful Prime Suspect would have been if cut down to 13 episodes with commercial breaks every 7 minutes.

Fourth series coming late 2015.

Subtitles are your friend.
