So, I have always liked Idris Elba.

But he’s been one of those actors who has sort of flown under the radar for me. I liked him when I saw him, but then I didn’t see him for a while. So when I heard he might play the new Bond, I got excited. Maybe now I would or could get a steady diet of this actor.

Turns out, the rumors may or may not be true. Either way, I felt I didn’t want him to slip back under the radar with me, so I started looking for movies and shows where I might get a bit more.

Netflix has Luther. A police procedural with Elba in the starring role.

Gave it a try. I like it a lot and am going to be sticking with it.

For the record I hated the Dark Tower movie they made a while back. The only thing I did like about it was Idris Elba as the gunslinger.

He’s been doing great stuff for a long time and now it seems I finally have the good sense to pay attention.

Profile Picture for Philip A. McClimon
Philip A. McClimon is an author who likes to write about the end of the world (post apocalyptic, Sci/Fi), mostly because he thinks the shopping would be awesome (No crowds, everything free). He likes heroes that are the strong, silent type and not necessarily male. By silent he means up until the time there is something snarky to say, usually before, during, and after doing something cool. He writes Urban Fantasy under the name Billy Baltimore for no other reason than that he likes the name. Many of the same rules for his other stories apply to Billy’s, strong silent types, smart mouth, does cool stuff, but these stories take place in a made up town called Hemisphere and involve stuff you only ever hear about on late night conspiracy talk show podcasts, which are, if you think about it, pretty awesome too. So, that’s Phil. He’s not strong, rarely silent, and isn’t known for doing a lot of cool things. But his characters are.
