Would you be watching the series? Here's what critics are saying about series;
"Even Satanists will be reaching for the remote when … The Devil deserves better than … Oh, heck, FOX’s “Lucifer” is so terrible that it doesn’t even warrant the effort of a clever opening line." – New York Times
"It’s enjoyable but sticks to a path more well-trodden than the road to hell. It’s yet another show about a difficult but charismatic man with superpowers, helped by a female law enforcement officer. " – The Guardian.
“If something smells a little rancid, unfortunately, it's less likely brimstone than the stale whiff of a warmed-over concept.” – Variety.
“Lucifer is ABC's Castle plus the CW's Supernatural, and that's okay. Both shows are lots of fun and extremely popular.” – Temple Bay Times.
“There's a lot of faux-coolness here; strip clubs where everyone has clothes on, a lot of snarky jokes met with "Oh you're just the devil," etc etc.” – New York Observer.
“Tom Ellis gives the Devil swagger, but Fox makes him solve weekly crimes. Devil may care, audience may not.” – The Hollywood Reporter.
“He’s not a hero, he’s not a villain, and the show aims to play on the preconceived notions of the most infamous fallen angel of God’s heavenly host. On the face of it alone, there’s no reason Lucifershould work” – USA Today.
Starring Tom Ellis as Lucifer, the series also stars Lauren German as Chloe Dancer, an LAPD homicide detective who finds herself repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. Others include Lesley-Ann Brandt, Nicholas Gonzalez, D.B. Woodside and Rachael .
The series will focus on Lucifer, "who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell and resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the beauty of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals"
