There’s A Lot Going On When “Chloe Does Lucifer”

A typical one-hour serial procedural usually runs an A Plot and a B Plot. Sometimes, there’s a funny C plot or one that moves along a long arc story that’s building towards the season climax. That’s three stories to spin with appeal. Just three? Pfft… amateurs. Because the Lucifer writers […]

An Outsider’s Look at Lucifer is “Off the Record”

I’m a huge fan of ambitious, clever, and novel story-telling and this one-off, mind-bending script was solid entertainment from start to finish. We start with an unknown man waking from some sort of medical emergency with a new lease on life. He sets out to win back his estranged wife… […]

Lucifer Is Not Amused by Canada’s Cutest Couple “Mr. and Mrs. Mazikeen Smith”

I’m in a serious need of a Maze spin-off series. I would watch the HECK out of that bounty hunter comedy-adventure. As our resident soulless demon, ex-torture queen of hell, and bad-ass roommate, she is so much more than a simple sidekick or ensemble member. And Trixie would make such […]

Lucifer Gets Back in the Game in “The One With the Baby Carrot”

Season Three is playing it fast and loose with banter and bad guys and it’s a lot of fun to just go along for the ride. From a little “premature unfurling” to some rather literal Rotten Tomatoes ratings, Lucifer is on a war path but having a grand time along […]

Bull Looks for the Cognitively Agile in “Already Gone”

It’s nice to see that the show isn’t going to start shying away from controversial subjects in its second season. In “Already Gone” we witness high school student, Adam Harris (Sam Vartholomeos, Star Trek: Discovery), breaking his terminally ill girlfriend, Emily (Nell Verlaque) out of her hospital and then, after […]
