image for How 'Luther' Could Change American Television Forever.

If you have an hour to spare find the BBC One show 'Luther' on Netflix.

Select any one of the first five episodes, and watch it, uninterrupted.

Thereafter, I defy you to watch any pablum-plain, uninspired, saccarine, dumbed-down, bullshit American cop drama, and declare it better than this show.

And, while eautifully photographed (on film, it appears; not videotape), masterfully scored and chock-full of polished, well-written dialogue, it is the dramatic performances that make it such a pleasure to watch. Bit-players in this show would be walking off with Emmy after Emmy if cast in an American show. Cast member Ruth Wilson would be regarded as the best actress on television.

NBC, give up on remaking Ricky Gervais vehicles and Pick this show up.

Here! Unadulterated, exactly as it is.

You will change American television forever.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
