I've been a bit behind on my computer lately and forgot to post this from the BBCA web site:

As it turns out, "The Hour", which the critics love, is a good period drama series and a cold war spy thriller. But like many BBC projects, it builds slowly.

If you missed the first episode, you can record it Wednesday 1 PM Pacific time.

Thanks for the leads, phrelin! I look forward to watching a couple of these in glorious DirecTV SD. :bang

Thanks for the heads up. They all look interesting although Luther is a repeat. But good enough I'll watch it again because I enjoy Idris Elba's work.

I am under the impression that we will be getting the second "Luther" miniseries. According to The Futon Critic's page:

Emmy nominee Idris Elba is back in the mini-series sequel Luther.... Luther returns to policing in a different world. His old unit has gone and he's working in the newly created Serious and Serial Unit.... Luther quickly gathers together his team, rescuing his old partner Detective Justin Ripley...from uniform.

Thanks. I didn't dig deep enough on BBCA's site or I would have known that.
