Okay, so I just watched the first episode of Luther.

I've been meaning to get around to it for a while; a lot of people with tastes similar to mine have recommended it and it's got lots of things relevant to my interests: a Sherlock Holmes-Columbo inspiration, Idris Elba, a murderous female mastermind, etc.

In the first episode, Luther flies into a violent rage during an argument with his estranged wife, harasses her in front of her co-workers, assaults her new boyfriend, attempts to use his status as a high-ranking police officer to cow lower ranking policemen who respond to her call when he won 't stop banging on her door and shouting for her, and in general never takes no for an answer from her but instead always persists until she gives in just to have a moment's peace.

You know who does this sort of thing?

An abuser.

Honestly, I was looking forward to finding out if the torture porn I've been warned about would be the deal-breaker but I just can't, people. I just can't.
