Lucifer: Season 1 Reviews

January 26, 2016
With Ellis's scenery-chewing as its centrifugal force, Lucifer is a pulp fandango that revels in its inherent silliness and is all the richer for it.

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.

Indeed, the mysteries are almost beside the point; your mileage will vary precisely based on how you like the leads. Take it for a spin.

Hellishly bad, is Lucifer.

So the best advice is to do precisely what you'd probably do anyway: Watch Lucifer for as long as you're enjoying it, and stop when you're not.

There's nice but predictable chemistry between Ellis and German, and although Fox only made one episode available to critics, the show's concept is so obvious, it's easy to see exactly where this will go, unless it gets canceled first.

Even Satanists will be reaching for the remote when ... The Devil deserves better than ... Oh, heck, Fox's Lucifer is so terrible that it doesn't even warrant the effort of a clever opening line.
January 25, 2016
The conventional crime-time format incinerates everything strange and spirited about the concept.

Somewhere along the way, you're very likely to find yourself wondering if this is the least interesting thing Beelzebub has ever done while killing time on the mortal plane.

Where Lucifer the comic series offered a deep meditation on the nature of free will, Lucifer the TV show inserts its title character into what is basically the premise of Castle.

It's enjoyable but sticks to a path more well-trodden than the road to hell.

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

If something smells a little rancid, unfortunately, it's less likely brimstone than the stale whiff of a warmed-over concept.

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.
