LUCIFER THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON REVIEWED
“Lucifer” is one of those lesser Vertigo titles. Sure, it spun off Gaiman’s work on “Sandman”, but it lacked that certain feel. The series itself is the kinda procedural approach that makes me cringe. Treating Lucifer as a nightclub owner (accurate) who feels bad for mortals (mixed) and helps the LAPD (WTF?) is such a misread. But, the show has fans even in its short 13 episode run. Plus, the little girl in the cast is cute.
While the show doesn’t move as odd as Gotham, it tries to build a world around an indie horror title that didn’t exactly light the world on fire. The direction throughout the series is on-point and varied. Honestly, I think each episode has a new helmer. The writing is consistent, but the playful changes behind the scenes allows for better flow to introduce the concept of DC/Vertigo’s Lucifer. Hopefully, it’ll survive its second season on FOX. The CW can only save so many WB shows.
