This simple low budget TV show isn't about the devil at all.
1 March 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

I wasn't planning on writing another episode review for this light, comedic, buddy cop series but I am surprised about the dithyrambic reviews of some, obviously juvenile, members of IMDb.

It's more than obvious that these fans are driven solely by the name of the show and not its actual artistic, technical or entertaining characteristics.

Don't get me wrong. Exactly the opposite is also happening. People who think that this is a series about Satan, the source of all evil according to Christianity are also wrong.

This simple low budget TV show isn't about the devil at all.

The depiction of Lucifer is (increasingly) that of a nice guy. A guy who cares. Who wants justice and he doesn't lie. And he is misunderstood. Someone who forced by the hand of his father to take a job he didn't wanted...

So, again, this is not a series about Satan. It doesn't involve killing, bloody sacrifices and rituals, deception and lies... Lucifer doesn't want to take over the throne of God and rule in his place.

So, why people are so willing to defend it in IMDb's boards, and insult people who see it for what it actually is, a buddy cop show with a twist? Honestly other than the name I can't think of anything else. It has a few somehow fun yet very simple moments: a cute kid with his face covered with chocolate denies she ate any, Nina Simone's Sinnerman is sang by the lead actor...but not to justify the continuous 10 out of 10, I'm reading. It might be a little justified by the young audience who lacks experience on TV series and movies.

In this 6th episode you get some more insight about the things I mention earlier: The Devil is a good guy, truthful and caring, heartbroken by the injustice of a cruel father. And the buddy-cop relationship gets even stronger. And something of value is stolen by an actual bad guy that will monopolize the interest of the young fans.

Overall: If you want to make a show and call it Lucifer or Satan or Master of all evil or ...whatever... you must also be willing to stand up to the hype of what you are doing. Lucifer isn't a thriller, or a horror show, and it doesn't promote to be evil at all. Quite the contrary...
