The Devil is bored with hell and has decided to come back to earth to a new life in LA where he inadvertently becomes a consultant for the LAPD. Funny, sharp and witty as hell, Lucifer is a must if you like your reality to have a healthy does of fantasy thrown in.

If you haven't caught the Lucifer bug then it's time you did. One of the very few tv programs that will have you bingeing from morning to night, Lucifer Morningstar is the original fallen angel that has decided he is thoroughly fed up with hell. He gives up his throne in the underworld and decides to come back to earth where he ironically decides to settle in the City Of Angels (LA).

While overindulging in the excesses of life, Lucifer still retains some of his otherworldly powers which allows him to ‘grant favours' until one of his recipients is murdered outside of his upscale nightclub. For the first time in billions of years, the murder awakens something unfamiliar in Lucifer's soul that is eerily similar to compassion and sympathy and he quickly pairs up with the investigating detective, Chloe Decker, which starts the partnership the show revolves around.

Lucifer has it all. It's witty, brilliantly cast with Tom Ellis (The Secret Of Crickley Hall) and Lauren German popping off the screen, clever in its storylines and character development and provides a heady mix of fantasy and reality that will have you intrigued and engaged from beginning to end. The supporting cast of Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, Aimee Garcia, Kevin Alejandro and D.B. Woodside is inspired and brings together a real mix of personalities that elevate the show.

Lucifer covers a lot of genres – crime because there's a new murder in each episode, fantasy because you have to believe he's the Devil, comedy because of it's clever and sharp one-liners, drama because of the relationships between the various characters and romance because of the ‘will they won't they' that plays out between Lucifer and Decker over the seasons.

It's an excellent combination of all of the above. Season three ended on an almighty cliff hanger and then FOX, who create the show in the US, shockingly cancelled it (insert appropriate crying and angry faced emoji's here). Thankfully Netflix bought the rights to it and have since created seasons 4 and 5.

UPDATE:The show has been renewed for Season 6 and production on that has wrapped so we will be getting our final season in late 2021 or early 2022.

  2. Lucifer is a fairly good series. However, I want to hear the dialog, not all the loud music. Play the music far into the background. it’s going to a restaurant with loud music. Who the hell wants the music in a nightclub when you want to speak and hear members at the dinner table. Stupid.

  3. So who’s looking after Hell with Lucifer on holiday?

    • No one needs to tend to hell. Hell is on earth. Just look around at the politicians, Hollywood, and the federal government.
