Idris Elba


Mr. Elba is soooo sexy.  I'm not usually a sucka for an accent...but his works.  I'm not sure if you've watched his t.v. show "Luther"...It's on the BBC channel...you can also watch it instantly on Netflix...(sidebar...I heart Netflix...even though they are raising their rates. UGH!)  Back to Idris...his show, Luther is a mix between Law and Order and All My Children...yep.  He's a married, lead detective with the London police department...His wife is cheating on him (I won't say much more about that...I don't want to give it away)...I'll just say, he's very vulnerable...how often do we see that on t.v.?  ...luv it! ...he runs all over London (it's beautifully shot) trying to solve the most interesting cases...sigh.  Check it out and let me know if you like it...he was just nominated for an Emmy for this show...It's one of the top rated t.v. shows in London...and not a bad way to spend a Friday night if you ask me...Enjoy your weekend and be safe.

Here's a link to the show.

  12. Ok I finished watching this over the weekend. I really enjoyed it. Never seen a cop character like him before. Tortured, uncouth, but wanting to do the right thing no matter what. Thanks for the rec.

  13. Well...I'm behind the others. But I just saw the first of a two episode miniseries for Luther tonight on Comcast Cable. This was good; by the end of the first show I'm finally understanding the accents and now ready for the second part....
    Thanks for the recommendation. Alice got out of jail and next week it will be interesting to see what happens...cliff hanger for sure.
