Luther - Season 1



As the leading sibling of either The Umbrella Academy or The Sparrow Academy, that sibling would have more prolonged and direct contact with their adopted father, Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore). Throughout the series, it is clear that Reginald is an unaffectionate and harsh father, who uses his mission and brilliance as an excuse to belittle, ignore and bully his adopted children into overexerting themselves, be it The Umbrella Academy or The Sparrow Academy. The siblings do, in the hope that they will gain some modicum of affection from him, but it is clear that he was often distant and commanding. The pressure of trying to impress a Hargreeves is exactly what Luther had to contend with back in season 1. His pressure to prove himself useful ended up with him living on the moon, far away from everyone he knew and loved, to the point where his insecurities manifested in harsh reactions towards his siblings.




Luther - Season 1



Alice Morgan is a genius as well, who has gone to college at 13. Luther knows she has committed the murders, but also knows she is to smart to ever be caught. Alice is a bit of a Hannibal Lecter character and is a friend and a foe to Luther through out season 1.


Season 1 is 6 episodes long, but has more story then most series twice or four times as long. Luther tackles a handful of cases, some come to a conclusion in one episode, some take longer or linger through out the season. Luther also has to face his personal issues with his wife and with others on the police force through out the series as well.


Dre is also a little obsessed with holidays in general. Are we going to get a President's Day episode? Memorial Day? I can just imagine what their Fourth of July traditions would look like. I'm guessing costumes and lots of illegal fireworks, but they have to save something for season 2, right?


Charlie is getting more obnoxious as the season goes on. I get that he guilt tripped Dre into bringing him on the ski trip, but it still baffles me that he spends any time outside of work with him at all. Who or what was in his trunk? It would not shock me at all if Charlie turned out to be a serial killer.


Did you guys like it better than I did? Maybe throwing Pops into the mix instead of Charlie would have helped. We're now half way through the first season, does anyone have any thoughts or hopes for the second half? I wouldn't mind seeing more of the Rainbow/Zoey bonding that was touched on this week. So much of the focus has been on Dre and Junior, it would be nice to explore the rest of the family a little more.


Set against the ticking clock of an impending apocalypse, The Umbrella Academy introduces us to a world of would-be superheroes, time-traveling assassins, and deep dark family dysfunction. The first season of the Netflix series inspired by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá's comic series of the same name is a rather complex journey, full of alternate timelines and a massive ensemble of characters, and at ten-hours long, it's not exactly a quick revisit.


There's no easy way to fit this into a clean recap, but it's about this point in the series where we get a bizarre flashback that offers some insight into the, seemingly alien, origins of Reginald. In a sparse, clean room we've never seen before, Reginald is lovingly tending to a bedridden woman. He brings her violin to her bedside and she tells him to give it to someone who will love it as much as she does. He says he can't leave her, but she strokes his face and tells him he must. "I'll die here, but you won't." She tells him, "The world needs you, Reggie." He picks up a jar of twinkling, glowing lights and releases them out a window; as they float into the air, countless missiles launch towards the sky in the background. Next, we see Reggie deboarding from an immigration ship, toting the violin, making his way into the city, where he finds an umbrella manufacturer for sale. It's the only glimpse into Reggie's history that we see in the first season.


That's a wrap on the Season 1 recap! If you're gearing up for Season 2 now, you can read our review of the stellar new season here, and once you make your way through, head here for our ending explainer.


A Season Pass allows you to purchase a television season and have the episodes delivered to your system shortly after they air. Any episodes available now will be queued for download immediately. As new episodes are added, they will automatically be added to your download queue. You will be notified whenever there are new episodes to watch.


Again, the series is written by Neil Cross, who created the characters and wrote the prequel novel. Luther Season 5, Episode 1 is directed by Jamie Payne, who did such a nice job in The Alienist, and a fine job he does here too: the pacing, production, and quality of characters mirror earlier seasons, and everything flows together as it should, with music, tension, and at least two separate shitstorms piling up as episode one progresses.


Season 2 of "Luther" established the formula used across the rest of the series, with a single subplot that bridges the entire season and cases that span multiple episodes, a departure from season 1's more traditional episodic format. For the show's sophomore effort, a Punch-masked killer is inspired by a figure from Victorian-era folklore, going to horrifying lengths to emulate their hero. In addition, a man is murdering people at the whim of a pair of dice as part of a larger game. Both cases offer captivating mysteries, and watching Luther crack them (with Ripley's help) is fascinating.


Not that Luther has time for all that right now, though one assumes it will drop on his desk in the morning. In the meantime, he's been waylaid on his way home by George Cornelius (Patrick Malahide) and his gang. Cornelius' oldest son is missing, and he's "just making sure" Luther wasn't involved in the disappearance and the ransom he's paying to try to get the kid back. After all, they didn't end on the best of terms in Season 4, with that whole Luther chaining him to the radiator bit. Still, it's nice to see a bad guy other than Alice make it a two-season run, even if Luther really doesn't have anything to do with the kidnapping.


Luther makes it home just in time for tea with the boss, DSU Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley), one of only two characters who has starred in all five seasons alongside Elba. Don't worry, the other, DS Benny Silver (Michael Smiley) will turn up in a minute. Schenk is here to check in with Luther about his newly assigned partner DS Catherine Halliday (Wunmi Mosaku), who is already fast tracking it through the department, and conveniently also there to join him in scoping out the latest body found in the park. It looks to be our wayward hood, Lee Peck, who for his trouble lost his eyes and tongue along with his life. Luther, being the smart one, immediately figured out where our killer came from. There's a house across the street with an extra victim nailed to the floor.


The central case for season 5 saw serial killer and heart surgeon Jeremy Lake on a murderous spree, mutilating his victims in horrific fashion. Luther and the team were sent off course at that start of the season by Jeremy's wife, psychiatrist Vivien Lake, who helped him cover up his crimes and gave them a lead, setting up one of her unstable patients to take the fall.


London gangster George Cornelius, who first appeared in season 4, was back for season 5 and looking for his missing son. After interrogating Luther, it later became clear George's son had been kidnapped by Alice Morgan, who was looking for vengeance after a botched diamond sale in which George robbed her.


George hired hitman Mr Palmer, who tracked down Alice and an escaped Benny. Luther had harboured them with Mark (remember him? Paul McGann's character from seasons 1 and 2?), but Palmer found them, and told Luther to meet them there. When Benny started describing Palmer to Luther down the phone in an act of self-sacrifice, he was shot dead.


Throughout season 5 Luther was working with a new DS, Catherine Halliday, a by-the-book officer who had been appointed from the private sector as part of a fast-track scheme. It's fair to say she and Luther didn't see eye to eye at first, but they became closer across the season.


Schenk had been suspicious of Luther's actions all season, and early on found evidence that he was harbouring Alice. Getting ever closer to his web of lies and illicit activity, he was eventually duped by George into believing Luther had killed Palmer and Benny.


According to Unogs, only two regions of Netflix are streaming Luther, Netflix Switzerland and Netflix Germany. Those regions are streaming all five seasons of the show and are available in multiple audio and subtitle options.


At one point, Luther did stream on Netflix in the United States. In fact, it was available for several years, with seasons 1-3 added in September 2014 and season 4 added in 2016 before being removed in its entirety in 2019.


Maybe because none of those Emmys came through, or, perhaps, because the lust for Luther is insatiable, a third season (which could, allegedly, lead into a big screen film) aired in England over the summer and will premiere on BBC America on Sept. 3.


The series was created and written by Nic Pizzolatto, with each season operating as a self-contained narrative and including a revolving door of big names in the cast. Stars have included Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Mahershala Ali, among others.


A fourth season taking place in Alaska has been ordered, with Jodie Foster and Kali Reis set to star. Until then you can binge the first three seasons in about 23 hours with a subscription to HBO Max or buy it on Vudu, Prime Video, or Apple TV+. There are literally enough hours in the day to binge this one! 041b061a72
