Lucifer Episode 1 Review: Hellish (Series Premiere)

"Fox's" latest new offering premiered this week. "Lucifer" is based on a DC Comics character. Lucifer Morningstar wants to take a break from Hell. Where does the Devil go when he needs a little R&R? Why Los Angeles of course. Off he zips is his sporty car, tailored suit, and British accent. Incidentally, I had always suspected Satan was from across the pond. 

Beelzebub hangs out at his swanky nightclub Vox. He seems like a surprisingly nice guy (for being Evil Incarnate and all). Big D has a soft spot for a girl (Delilah) who is shot in his arms. Have no fear. Morningstar is now on the case.  

On a side note, the Devil's dad (I'm envisioning Harvey Keitel in "Little Nicky") wants him home. Angel Amenadiel will escort Luc back. Amen has some big black wings. Too bad we couldnt see more of him. The Prince of Darkness has retired though. He doesnt plan to return anytime soon. 

One of Lucifer's powers (I assume there are many) is getting humans to reveal their deepest fantasies. For some reason this doesnt work on LAPD Detective Chloe Decker though. He's intrigued. She arrests him for being a creeper. Of course she has to stop at her daughter's school on the way to the police station. The Prince of Darkness has a way with children (even though he despises them). Trixie and he become fast friends. Off Lucifer goes to help Chloe solve crimes. What I thought was going to be a horror show has now turned into a cop procedural/possible romcom.  

Grade: 2 1/2 Monsters (out of 5). "Lucifer" isnt a completely terrible show. It's just not my cup of tea. I wrongly assumed it would be a horror series (since it's about the Devil and all). This offering seems better suited for the light fluff of the "CW" channel. Do we really need another cop show on TV? I think not. And why would Satan waste his time solving crimes? I'm sure he already know who committed them in the first place. Tom Ellis is super charming as Lucifer. He gives the role his all. Lauren German is also appealing as Chloe. There just isn't enough here to keep me coming back though.
