Based on the character from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo comic, Lucifer is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, and has resigned his throne and retired to the City of Angels where he is indulging in a few of his favorite things — wine, women and song.  When a beautiful pop star is brutally murdered before his eyes, he feels something awaken deep within him – for the first time in roughly 10 billion years. Is he actually capable of feelings for a human being? The very thought disturbs him — as well as his best friend and confidante, Mazikeen (aka Maze), a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman. The murder attracts the attention of LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker, who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. As they work together to solve the murder, Lucifer is struck by Chloe’s inherent goodness. Used to dealing with the absolute worst of humanity, he begins to wonder if there’s hope yet. Maybe everyone’s got a chance for redemption.  Even the Devil.

The series stars Tom Ellis (Rush, Merlin), Lauren German (Chicago Fire), DB Woodside (Suits, 24), Lesley-Ann Brandt (The Librarians), Kevin Alejandro (Southland, True Blood), Scarlett Estevez(Daddy’s Home), Kevin Rankin (Dallas Buyers Club) and Rachael Harris (The Hangover). Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo from DC Entertainment, Lucifer is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television. Tom Kapinos (Californication) developed the series and serves as executive consultant.  Returning for a second season on FOX, the series is executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean films), Jonathan Littman (The Amazing Race, CSI franchise), Joe Henderson (White Collar, Almost Human), Ildy Modrovich (CSI: Miami, Californication) and Len Wiseman (Underworld films).

Season One Review: 

Lucifer Morningstar, the devil himself has found himself in Los Angeles looking for a new life. He is connected with detective Chloe Decker and is fascinated with criminals and punishment. Through various cases, Lucifer and Chloe discover more about themselves. Lucifer isn’t left alone, Maze and Amenadiel are constantly convincing him to return to Hell. Lucifer finds that he is falling for Chloe, and attempts then to try to seduce her which is a great idea, for the viewers. The season is capped off with Lucifer being framed for murder. Chloe and him must work together to find the real killer and clear his name.

The show has an interesting concept and most of the time delivers pretty well. Tom Ellis is incredibly charming and witty and causes many people to want to go to the dark side. I’m interested to see where the next season goes. Crime drama shows can sometimes become too repetitive, so I hope that Lucifer stays on this path of enjoyable television.

The DVD Review: 

Disc One contains episodes 1-5 with unaired scenes for “Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil,” and “Manly Whatnots.”

Disc Two contains episodes 6-10 with unaired scenes for “Et Tu, Doctor?,” “A Priest Walks into a Bar,” and “Pops.”

Disc Three contains episodes 11-13 with unaired scenes for “St. Lucifer,” “#TeamLucifer,” and “Take Me Back to Hell.” The special features appear on this disc as well. They are the 2015 San Diego Comic Con Panel, Character profiles for Amenadiel, Chloe Decker, Linda and Dan. The disc also contains features titled “Devilish Duo” which covers the relationship between Lucifer and Chloe Decker, “Lucifer Morningstar,” the story about Lucifer and the Gag Reel.
