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 Detects and Chloe Parties When It’s “All Hands on Decker”

Things move quickly in Lucifer-land these days. Chloe no sooner agrees to marry Pierce/Cain than they set a date for a mere three months which kicks Ella into high gear to throw the ultimate bachelorette party. The guests are working at cross-purposes though since Charlotte’s looking to break the engagement […]

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, […]

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 […]

Lucifer’s Fall Finale Takes a Stab at “The Sin Bin”

After The Sinnerman’s eye-opening (sorry, too soon?) reaction to Lucifer’s interrogation last week, our engines were well and truly revved for this mid-winter finale. And the episode takes us on quite a ride before delivering its bombshell reveal. We start with a glimpse of the crime du jour, a woman […]

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 […]

Lucifer Isn’t Keen at First to “Welcome Back Charlotte Richards”

The proof is in the pudding this week… well, at least the body is as a pudding scientist, Simon Fisher (Jeff Bowser, Everybody Hates Chris),  is killed in a vat of his closely guarded secret recipe. This disturbs our resident pudding enthusiast, Espinoza, deeply but not as much as the […]
