When you think of Lucifer, you think of a dark and cunning person from hell but Fox’s new series tells a different story. It Features a character adapted from the character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg as a supporting character in the comic book series The Sandman, which later became the protagonist of the spin-off comic book series Lucifer.
The show began with a cunning devil breaking the rules being awesome but after the first 10 minutes the show turned into an usual crime drama series.
Well, the show hints us that there is going to be a bigger thing happening ahead in the series but for now it just seems like an usual cop show with supernatural element.
Let me tell you’ll one thing though, the show isn’t bad. I mean Tom Ellis is just extraordinary as Lucifer. So are the performances of the rest of the cast. Unfortunately the fans of the original material will be utterly disappointed as the TV show seems to be adapted in name only.
Talking of the premise, Lucifer gets bored of ruling Hell so he relocates himself in the City of Angels (duh!), where he runs a nightclub called Lux with his confidante Maze. Everything changes around Lucifer when he starts solving crime with Detective Chloe Dancer. Meanwhile Amenadiel tries to convince Lucifer to return to Hell or else face the coming consequences.
No matter what I said before, Lucifer sure is an enjoyable show. It even looks fabulous. I really liked the cinematography, not great but fancy. Although if the original creators were onboard with the series the show could’ve been much better.
The character has a huge potential but only if the show moves beyond the usual crime procedural element.
For now I would say this show is fun to watch, not bad at all but not for everybody. One thing though Tom Ellis as Lucifer is just freaking amazing. I wish they do justice to the character in the upcoming episodes.
