Apparently...

He goes into an insane Luther rage and starts running amok in the nick. First he swipes some papers off his desk with his arm, then sets the photocopier to print over 200 copies of his knuckles against the glass. He then barges past a number of fellow officers, spilling their coffee and causing several pounds worth of damage to the carpet, before kicking over a bin, scattering paper and someones sandwich remains on the floor. He then ups the ante by punching a big hole in the incident room whiteboard and dropping all the post-it's in a shredder. The final straw comes when he snaps the arms and head off the Chief Superintendent's golf trophy, and they decide they have to reinstate his post to avoid a complete breakdown of law and order in the London metropolitan area.

I washed one episode last time. It was fucking awful.

He said some awful bollocks like, "sometimes, to be good you have to be bad."

Can't remember it verbatim but it was cringe central.

The writing generally seemed better this time, although still too many uses of the word "guv" for my liking (do "coppers" really talk like that - even hardened East End ones?) and the young girl involved in the torture porn stuff wasn't that convincing, but overall highly enjoyable tosh.

Oh, one great thing about the show last night was that the programme makers have dropped Luther's original boss, who laid claim to being one of the worst actresses of all time. I did then worry that they'd goofed by casting the lady from Survivors as one of Luther's new colleagues (man, was she shit in that), but thankfully she wasn't quite as appalling as she usually is.

Only saw a couple last year but loved this. I've realised that to enjoy it you just have to go with it and not worry too much about the why's and wherefore's.

I love the fact that you never know quite where it's going to go. Like when he's standing at the crime scene in the alley and deduces who the murderer is in the crowd just using the force.

The grittiness is a bit silly. Ooh serial killers, torture porn. British TV just can't do it without looking silly. It's great nonsense though. I'm hoping this season will be more fun because it looks like Luther won't have to deal with boring personal subplots like his wife any more. I'm hoping for more episodic stand-alone stories.

It wasn't a real Luther episode though -- he didn't smash up his office at all. It looks like he smashes his office up a little bit next week, so that's back on track.

This was very good. I like that, like the Thorne series, they're going for a single storyline over a couple or more episodes rather than having everything all tied up nicely in a bow within an hour.

Only thing it could have done without is the stupid overtly cockerknee prossie actress, she was proper shit.

Fantastic episode but Luther really needs to spring Alice from that hospital. These were the best bits:

I've got a lot of respect for sharks.

Luther firing the apple over the wall totally blasé.

The lady cop asking what grounds he had for asking her to confiscate the mobile phones and Luther nearly laughing in her face.

Luther putting the hooker on his shoulder and carrying down the street like a bag of coal.

Russian roulette.

How beautiful London looked in HD.

10/10 - would watch again.

You've run so far past the point it's unreal.

LOOFAH!!!

Shame the killer guy was a lot less threatening than he was last week, but Ma from Darling Buds made up for that. And it let Luther be a bad-ass as usual. The scene where he wouldn't answer the phone was great, the one where he worked out the killer's plan was ridiculously Luther. :eyebrows:

I'm willing to ride with the fact that the guy who was trying to fuck Luther over all last series is now his boss and is awesome.
