If you haven’t seen Lucifer on Amazon yet, you’re missing out. Some people get Amazon just to be able to watch Lucifer. Season 2 has finished and now we’re waiting for season 3 to come to the UK. Apparently, it will be aired in Q4 in the US, so it will probably take until 2018 before we’ll be able to see it in the UK.
What is Lucifer about? It’s about the devil, aka Lucifer Morningstar, who was sick and tired of running hell and decided to leave it behind and have some fun on earth (much to the annoyance of his father, who sends his brothers to make him go back). And what fun he has! Tom Ellis plays Lucifer Morningstar and I don’t know who was in charge of casting, but they deserve a medal. Ellis portrays Lucifer, who tries to tell everyone he’s the devil but without success of being believed, to perfection. He is witty, funny, elegant… in other words very ‘suave.’ And he talks with a very English accent, adding to his suaveness.
What makes Lucifer so much fun to watch? For one, we get to see Tom Ellis in action. The man is eye candy, has funny lines to say, and he can sing. I always look forward to when he gets to his piano and plays a soulful tune. And his voice… it’s heavenly (or should I say devilish)! My son introduced me to The Brothers Bright the other day and I love one particular song of theirs, called ‘Blood on my name.’ Check it out on YouTube. The voice sounds very much like that of Tom Ellis and it makes me yearn to hear more of him. There is a YouTube video of Tom Ellis singing that was recently put on there. Check it out here. I just love his Sinnerman version.
The co-stars of Lucifer are played by Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker (Lucifer’s love interest), Kevin Alejandro as Detective Daniel “Dan” Espinoza (Chloe’s ex and father of Trixie), D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel (an angel and Lucifer’s brother), Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen (Lucifer’s sidekick and demon), Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin (the shrink who tries to help Lucifer understand himself), and the very cute Scarlett Estevez as Beatrice “Trixie” Espinoza. All unbelievably pretty people. With all these pretty people walking about, it is obvious you shouldn’t take this series seriously. All police protocol is thrown out the window and should be taken with a grain of salt. As is the case with most detective series available nowadays. It’s still a lot of fun though.
You have to listen very carefully to all the dialogue. It seems that Tom Kapinos, who developed the series based on the Lucifer character from The Sandman (created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg), had a lot of fun writing it. It has so many funny references, jokes, and innuendos. Only for these alone, you’d want to watch it all again (which is what I’m doing 😀 ).
In the meantime, I’m keeping my eye out for something to take Lucifer’s place, but I haven’t found anything yet. I’m not a quitter though!
