I got this recommended to me by a lovely friend, but kept it on “sometime” list, for when I had better means to watch it. Then it appeared on Netflix, and I had no more excuses, so I went ahead and watched it. And I loved it!
Lucifer Morningstar got bored of hell, and misconception of what he is, or why things happened to him. So he decided to have some fun upstairs. Contrary to the twisted beliefs, Lucifer is not evil, but rather a punisher of evil, so his fun is not that far off from our fun. Parties, drinks, dances, bodies. Sin away, darlings, preferably with him.
His fun gets a spiked, and a tad more interesting when he runs into a detective. She won’t fall under his spells. Hell, she even counteracts his magic somehow, making him more human. More flesh, more mortal, blood and all. Meaning, he could actually die if someone killed him with her in the proximity. And Luci’s just not one to quit playing with fire, if the fire feels new.
The only dilution to his wonderful time is his brother from up-up stairs. An angel sent down to ask or persuade, or otherwise get Lucifer back into hell for duties. Duty-bound, and duty-blind angel goes to extreme lengths in attempt to fulfill his mission, and forgets to wonder the big question: what’s too far? What’s too far for an angel?
Really, this was one fun ride, especially the finale of it. I really can’t wait for the next season to happen on Netflix, I know it’s already out some place else, and it bothers me a bit. If you want something light, fun, funny, Good Omens, Crowley-y – go watch Lucifer.
