Scary Good
Verified purchase
This frames a good philosophical question: what if the fallen angel himself takes a vacation on Earth? Does he surround himself with debauchery or scores of people selling their souls ? There are references to both, but the story gives us clever dialogue between him and humans; for one reason or the other, he takes a personal interest in local crimes. Not your standard murder series.
So, Lucifer helps discover clues, scares the bad guys, exchanges witty comebacks at a homicide detective (a single mom with ex- also on the force), contradicting his stereotype. Even his apartment is scene for displaying his zest to experience humans and live like a wealthy son of privilege. But escape from his personal problems? Never.
Enjoy, but don't go to sleep without saying a prayer....

A surprisingly fresh and clever new take on the devil
Verified purchase
When my dark-fantasy fan friend suggested me to watch Lucifer, I first was reluctant, since I feared a violent and sick show with a cruel and immoral hero. I finally watched, and… how wrong I was, and what a wonderful surprise! I love Lucifer precisely because it is the exact opposite! For a show initially aired on a mainstream public network, it is the most enthralling thing I saw in years. The most brilliant concept and the best idea it was possible to ever have: the devil is good! Yes, you read it right, the devil is not evil, only people see him that way, and the celestial forces (angels, demons, God himself) want him to play this role, but that’s not who he is, and when one thinks about it, even if it’s a bit of a stretch for us Westerners raised in the Judeo-Christian tradition, one realizes that it makes a perfect sense: the devil can’t be evil, since his purpose is to punish evil! Doing it with the genuine kindness we can feel radiating from him makes him an actual righter of wrongs, concerned by the free-will and consent of humans and acutely aware of what is evil and what is only a mistake, what is well-deserved and what is undeserved. This sense of justice, mixed with his supernatural attractiveness and the high opinion of himself that he gets from it, make some kind of adorkable grown-up child, irritating and ill-mannered but terribly endearing, and obviously a rich and complex character. But probably never this sassy scoundrel would have become such an endearing hero if not portrayed by a real awesome actor. Tom Ellis is perfect in this role. Funny, charming, playful, able to scare or to show the most touching vulnerability within a simple look, as talented as he is handsome, with his singular face and dark eyes, he radiates an insane charm, which his delightful accent, his tall slender stature and his chic suits only emphasize. The devil is supposed to be tempting? Well this one definitely is… The blatant chemistry with his partner Lauren German makes the duo Lucifer and Chloe a real delight to watch: starting from bickering to come to a real bond, their relationship is constantly sexy, and when this first season ends, without anyone having seen anything coming, the devil is in love. That’s no coincidence if she makes him vulnerable! Through contact with her, he becomes the human he is inside and didn’t believe he could be. Beyond their police investigations, indeed, and even beyond the conspiracies of angels and supernatural beings behind Lucifer’s back, this is a show about what it is to be human. Yet a show that talks about what it is to be human is a show that moves, of course. we don't just laugh or feast our eyes on sexy scenes: this playful and sexy entertainment manages more than once to bring tears to one’s eyes… And, yes, it’s full of swear words, sex, jokes, puns, cheeky humor and vaudevillian situations, with a nice soundtrack. Sure, the first 2-3 episodes are not entirely satisfying in that they seem to stall regarding whether Lucifer is good or evil, evil turning to good or good mistakenly taken for evil, and the cop-show genre is probably not the most fitting to develop a tale about the devil, but whatever, this mix of biblical stuff and inner struggles of the characters does work! When it first aired, it was frankly a big breath of fresh air in the overly formatted universe of formula shows on public networks!

Great characters, smartly written
Verified purchase
"Lucifer" is, at first glance, a fresh concept for a television series.
It's really not, however, but that doesn't take away from the fact it's a well-written series with some truly great characters, some interesting plots, and nice portrayals by the primary and secondary actors.
First: The idea of the Devil mixing with humans has been done many times in the past. Any high school student who had to read "The Devil and Daniel Webster," for example, knows that. Any country music fan who ever listened to "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" knows it too. The writers who came up with the idea for "Lucifer" did take a nice approach to the main character in this series, however, by making him more human than many of the men and women he comes into contact with. I say that because Lucifer Morningstar, though a hedonist to the nth degree, actually seems to want to learn more about himself than most of the other characters in the series.
That's a plus, in my opinion.
The series is set in Los Angeles - the City of Angels (nice touch that) - and Lucifer owns a hot nightclub. He becomes interested in a homicide detective during a criminal investigation and from that point on the series resembles a host of "buddy" shows featuring the ongoing relationship between two seemingly disparate characters.
(Think "Castle," as one example.)
What makes "Lucifer" a very good series is not its uniqueness but the smart writing and the spot-on performances of the ensemble cast featuring Tom Ellis as the Devil and Laura German as Det. Chloe Decker.
So, it's not a new concept but (and this is important) it's really well done and that makes it worth 5 stars in my opinion.

Lucifer is a "devilish" good show! (sorry, couldn't resist)
Verified purchase
Witty, clever and well-written, this show is fearless in poking fun at the human condition by using a "new to living among humanity" angel. Lucifer is like a fearless child who hasn't learned the social cues yet, and speaks what is on his mind. Think of him as an "alien" who has come to Earth with just the barest knowledge about who and what we are. His comments can be way out in left field, or spot on. I enjoy watching his character grow and evolve (as well as all the other characters; what's happening with Maze is wonderful). The chemistry among all the actors is very strong, and it is obvious that they are enjoying themselves in these roles. I highly recommend this show.
For those who refuse to watch the show because it is about "satan", I can say this: this show is all about the redeeming and unconditional love of God for all His creations, be they human or angelic. Watching Lucifer begin to come to this realization is wonderful.

Lucifer Became My Favorite Show From Episode 1
Verified purchase
The moment episode one of Lucifer aired on tv I was hooked. This became my favorite show instantly, and I eagerly waited for each new show every week to air. And bought this DVD immediately when available. Unlike any other show I have ever seen, a touch of the show Castle (another favorite of mine), mixed with a little supernatural, comedy, drame, romance, it is all there. And I was part of the worldwide campaign that fought to keep this show going after it was dropped by Fox network after season 3, and we won, season 4 soon to air on Netflix in the USA and Amazon Prime in some countries. Don't miss out, this is a fabulous series

Entertaining. Funny. Irreverent.
Verified purchase
When I heard that Lucifer was getting the TV programme treatment, I was a bit apprehensive. I was concerned that it would be dull, boring or overly referential.
However, this turnt out not to be the case. I find Lucifer to be rather enjoyable. The reason for this is that Lucifer (played by welsh actor, Tom Ellis) is roguish, funny & as horny as a teenager. He thinks the world of himself & does not understand why Det. Chloe Decker does not. For the record, I don't either.
But I digress...
Det. Chloe Decker is the reason why I'm giving the programme four stars instead of five. I find her character to be rather one dimensional & uninteresting. Every week she slinging insults & put downs towards Lucifer; which has gotten tiresome. Chloe works alone as no one wants to work with her; we are told the reason for this is because her instincts led her to be in opposition with the police department & her fellow officers. I believe it's more likely that her off-putting personality has made other officers question whether not putting up with her would be worth the time spent in her presence. Anyway, the actress (whose name escapes me at the moment) does nothing to imbue her character with anything resembling a personality so her portrayal is lifeless.
The other characters fare only slightly better. By which I mean D.B Woodside as Amenadiel. Woodside's character looks promising but so far we have been treated to him looking menacing and issuing Lucifer dire warnings. I'm hoping they give Amenadiel & Mazikeen (Lucifer's trusty bodyguard & loyal solider from Hell) more to do than just warning our anti-hero about the dangers of the mundane world.
In short, this series looks promising. I'm looking forward to see where the writers/producers take the programme in the future. And I hope it stays on the air long enough to come into itself (Constantine, anyone?).
If anyone is debating watching it, give it a shot. It's quite entertaining!!!

Enjoyable and often humorous with a very charming Lucifer
Verified purchase
I started watching Lucifer late last summer on Hulu and enjoyed it so much I binge watched the first seven episodes in one sitting, then saw the last six the following night, and then ordered it on Blu Ray here on Amazon. It was not what I expected at all: a handsome, dashing, somewhat charming, often witty Lucifer trying to understand what his new emotions mean - often with funny results - as he becomes fascinated with helping a lovely LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker, who is immune to Lucifer's usually very persuasive immortal charms, solve her cases to ensure the wicked topside here on earth get punished. He is also fascinated as to why Decker can resist him and why he appears to becoming mortal at times. He keeps dealing with his angelic brother Amenadiel, who is determined to get him back to Hell even if he has to become a villain to try to accomplish it. Lucifer tells everyone who he is but, of course, no one believes him. Lucifer also protests that humanity has things wrong about him: that he never wanted to hurt anyone, only in Hell was he a punisher of the evil human sent there, that he never came topside to influence anyone to commit bad deeds, which is why he now enjoys helping Decker go after criminals. He laments his father's - the Almighty's - extreme punishment of him when he rebelled ions ago and then was left to rot as Lord of Hell for eternity. The show is very loosely based on the D.C. Comics Lucifer - mostly inspired by it - but wants to focus on Lucifer interaction in the mortal world of Los Angeles where he now r sides as a playboy and very successful night club owner: Lux. The theme of the show is whether he's redeemable, can he eventually become angelic again (early in the first season it's revealed he had his angel wings cut off right after arriving in LA five years earlier in dramatic rebellion or rejection of his former life), does he even want to, etc. British actor Tom Ellison nails it in the title role (his parents and some close relatives are Baptist ministers who are fine with this) as he displays a wide range of emotions as Lucifer grows and learns about his newly found emotions and tries to understand humanity, but is often baffled by it. The whole cast is very good and usually makes the show work even on weaker episodes. This is not a heavy, dark show despite the weekly homicide case or who Lucifer used to be. There are always humorous situations and some witty dialogue in each episode. Lucifer has layers which get peeled back as the show progresses. (The 18 episode second season is even stronger than the first as Lucifer's mother escaped from Hell and is determined to return to Heaven with Lucifer, who doesn't want to go, and his brother. Season 2 will be out on DVD and Blu-Ray in August 2017.) But the 13 episode first season really sets things up nicely and shows Lucifer is more his own man. This version of Lucifer is very loosely based (mostly inspired by) on the DC comic character who appears in the Sandman and Lucifer comics. Again, the show has a surprising amount of humor in most episodes which is why Fox network labels it as a comedy drama.

To me it's a lightly whimsical and predictable dramedy.
Verified purchase
I held off for years since the premise didn't seem too interesting to me but recently I purchased seasons 1 - 3 because it is rated well here on Amazon and later seasons have some actors I like from other shows so I though I'd give it a shot. I had to force myself to keep watching to finish season 1 . . . I hope it gets better in seasons 2 and 3? :-/ To me the writing and acting are mediocre and pedestrian more often than not. It's like almost all the "punches" are pulled, for both the attempts at humor and attempts to have deeper more serious action/drama. I think I laughed out loud once and thought "ooh, that's pretty cool" maybe twice during the whole season. Obviously a lot of people love it which is great, it just hasn't appealed to me . . . hopefully just not yet?
