Lucifer: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Lucifer: Season 1 (2016)




Critic Consensus: Lucifer's got sex appeal, but the show's hackneyed cop procedural format undermines a potentially entertaining premise.

Tv Season Info

Bored with wasting time in the deepest pits of hell, Lucifer has abdicated and now resides here on Earth, indulging in all forms of guilty pleasures: women, wine and parties. But the most terrifying turn is yet to come when he finds himself developing the most spine-chilling human trait of them all - emotion.

Critic Reviews for Lucifer: Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (16)

There's a lot of faux-coolness here; strip clubs where everyone has clothes on, a lot of snarky jokes met with "Oh you're just the devil," etc etc.

Protests have been heard against turning Lucifer into a good guy, but in fact, he's mainly just a smug jerk with a creepy smile. And as his reluctant sidekick, German is as bland as her counterparts on a lot of better shows.

This louche Lucifer is mostly a cop procedural snooze.

We're left with a show that's as cheesy as it is ridiculously improbable.

Welshman Tom Ellis plays the hell out of his lead role in Fox's Lucifer.

Top Critic

Aside from the story itself, Lucifer's pilot stands out among the 2015-2016 premieres. The music is an absolute perfect fit for the show... The dialogue is snappy and wry, and Tom Ellis is absolutely delicious as Lucifer, Lord of Hell.

Audience Reviews for Lucifer: Season 1

With the help of Tom Ellis's captivating and fantastic charm, this show is a lot of fun even with the dragging down cop premise.
