The Devil We Know: Lucifer’s Resurrection on Netflix and What Went Right

(Spoilers if you haven’t finished watching the Netflix season yet. So, if you haven’t, stop reading and GO WATCH IT.) Oh, they should know that the Devil’s a hard one to shake. When Fox cancelled the comic-book-sourced procedural in 2018, the outpouring of love from the fans was a wonderous […]

Lucifer’s Looking for the Old Normal in “Quintessential Deckerstar”

I’ve never been a fan of two-parters or cliffhangers but the Lucifer team manages a real feat with this penultimate season episode. It’s a solid return to form for a show that’s wobbled a bit this year. There are real emotional risks taken, a powerful double baddie bagging, and a satisfying […]

Lucifer Makes the Wrong Proposal in “Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better”

Pissing contests are rarely about the actual competition or even about the piss. It’s about the opponent. As Cain/Pierce’s most recent plan for ridding himself of immortality has involved winning Chloe’s affections, Lucifer has become more and more preoccupied with besting the world’s first murderer/past crime lord/present-day police lieutenant. And […]

Lucifer Makes No Bones About “The Angel of San Bernardino”

They say that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. If that’s the case, as evidenced by this season’s exploration of Cain/Pierce’s situation, it means that humanity’s first murderer is freakin’ STRONG. Of course, Cain/Pierce is only interested in the first part of the adage and, in some still-mystifying plan, […]

The Rift Widens in Lucifer’s “Orange is the New Maze”

As a fan, I have to believe there has to be purpose behind significant character changes on a show, especially on one as meticulously mapped out as Lucifer. Over the last half dozen episodes, the Maze storyline has run parallel, and secondary, to the major developments in the Caine/Pierce plot. […]

Pierce’s Memory Lane Takes Lucifer to “The Last Heartbreak”

The one thing we haven’t seen a lot of on a show full of immortals is costumed flashbacks. The only one that comes close is the origin story we got at New Year’s and that was only going back five years. But we did get to see Luci in a leisure […]

Lucifer Seeks Inspiration in Some “High School Poppycock”

Even when an opening scene telegraphs that it’s a dream, it’s still thrilling to watch because it has license to really GO BIG. Having Lucifer unfurl (his wings) in front of Decker only to have her fall off his penthouse balcony was a heckuva way to welcome us back into […]

Lucifer and Ella Explore Family Ties in “My Brother’s Keeper”

Ah, the joy of Trixie. I forget how much I miss Decker’s sprog until she back on screen, waving her powder pink death blades à la Maze around. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Tonight’s offering opens on a sketchy meet-up between a well-dressed dude and another dude with a […]

It’s a New Year’s Throwback as Lucifer Holidays in the “City of Angels?”

New Year’s Day is often a day used to reflect on the past. The gang over at Lucifer chose to have us look back to the very (fictional) beginning – 2011, to be exact – when Leisure Suit Luci takes a vacation to L.A. Into every hedonistic holiday, a little Amenadiel […]

Lucifer Comes Face to Face with “The Sinnerman”

After a short detour through some one-off (and pretty freakin’ awesome) adventures, we return to the hunt for this season’s Big Bad just in time for next week’s mid-winter finale. Talk about delaying gratification. Sheesh. The Sinnerman has been a shadowy figure since the start of the season. Apparently a […]
