Just watched the (leaked) pilot. Loved Tom Ellis, very charming and funny. I wish this was airing now; I'm hungry for more.

Hopefully this is the only thread.



Anyway, did anybody else catch this? I thought it was really good. I'm definently going to stick around and see how it goes. Worth checking out.

IGN said it wasn't that good and took liberties from the comics. I bet this show will be just like Constantine and cancelled before its 1st season is done.

Just finished ep1; I love it.

This is my kind of schmaltz. It's just corny enough, without being completely terrible.
I like the spin; he's a hedonistic cat, with a vindictive streak.

Also, loads of hot people.

I.LOVE.THIS.SHOW.

Why? What is wrong with me? So much bad acting, so predictable...

I'm hooked.

He just played fetch with a kid. Damn you Bruckheimer.

Yeah I'm loving this too. Don't know anything about the comic, but this is fun, clever in a twisted way, and Lucifer is so danged honest about exactly who and what he is, which a refreshing take on the "Prince of Lies". And apparently, he thinks kids are like dogs....

Exactly. I'm not a believer, but as far as Devils go, this one is the most... plausible? He's fun to watch...

I'm not sure how you categorize this particular brand of humor, but I laugh...the fetch line was classic.

Idk, guilty pleasure... Glad someone else agrees...


Lauren German has a great insta and Twitter, has a wildly sardonic wit, and might be one of the sexiest women alive -

But damn, she's a terrible actress. She needs to find the character...hell, find any character, and give it a go. Maybe she's just, bad?

I like the fact that he thinks of humans as toys to play with, but gets mad if someone breaks one of his favorites or interferes in his games with them. This is exactly how I've always thought a higher power would see us. We are their entertainment....

I can't believe this but Lucifer gets a second season.

Lucifer ‏@LuciferonFOX 1h1 hour ago

A deal with #Lucifer has been made. http://fox.tv/LuciferS2 #LuciferSeason2

As a huge Constantine fan this annoys me that Constantine got shafted by NBC and CW never bothered to pick it up. but this show is actually doing well

So glad to see it's getting another season! I'm really digging this show which has possibly surpassed Sleepy Hollow and Gotham as my favorite current show.

I watched episode 2 last night, not a fan.

I'm not sure how you can do a extremely loose adaptation of the Lucifer comic and still make a generic, safe and incredibly boring Devil, even more so the then the comic version.

It just felt like the run-of-the-mill cop and quirky character team-up show, and the actor almost feels like he's doing a parody of David Tennant's Purple Man and The Doctor.

Which is a shame, cause Lucifer is a pretty cool character in Sandman. So there's something there to work with even though the spin-off Lucifer comic is a bit lackluster.

I watched the trailer and I liked it. I thought it was interesting and funny. I never heard of the comic until I looked up the show on the Internet. Too bad Lucifer hasn't been picked up an Irish tv channel yet, as I'd probably like to watch the show.

This series...
Totally screwed up what could have been fun.

Was 8/10, now maybe a 2/10.

How so? We've got an ex keeping dirty secrets, a kid who idolizes the literal devil, an angel trying to manipulate and/or force him back to Hell, and a psychiatrist who can't say no to him. Even a plot to assassinate him! It's been bretty d@mn fun so far.

Season two starts in a couple of weeks! Just caught the preview, and- Lucifer has a MOTHER?! I'm guessing Lilith maybe? This could be interesting.

I wouldn't be surprised if they deviated even more from the comics. Since lucifer and Michael was created first by Yahweh as a catalyst to creation, and the rest of the host was created later.

Or it's just a nickname to Lilith, since she's the first woman.
