Storyline

Lucifer feels a void, which his psychologist highlights as "loneliness". Soon enough this void is filled with anger when a priest seeks his help to save a young boy from drug related issues. What starts as an attempt from Lucifer to expose the priest as a hypocrite ends up with Lucifer discovering that he was wrong, and with both the priest and Lucifer sharing experiences, and empathizing with one another.

Satan is a good caring person with a golden heart.
23 March 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

For me it was obvious from the beginning what kind of show Lucifer is.

After the pilot episode IMDb's board was full of supporters (even actual satanists believers) of Lucifer who attacked and insult Christianity and religion in general. At the opposite side Christians and "organizations" like one-million-moms were attacking the show trying desperately to get it off the air.

Even after a few episodes, where the premise and purpose of the show became more obvious, both sides were keep insisting on pushing their initial belief.

For the more reasonable and objective viewers though, it was evident that Lucifer is just a light buddy cop series. The story of a "special" unorthodox (pun intended also!) consultant for the police. Maybe even like "Monk" or "The mentalist".

This is the 9th episode and still every episode is pretty much the same. Luci curses his almighty dad. Makes puns and cute comments constantly, and he keeps telling to everyone that he is the devil.

Now is also clear that Satan is a really nice guy. A caring person. His empathy is very strong. Far more than the average human if you ask me. Satan has a golden heart.

There are numerous buddy cop series out there following that formula: An officer of the law and a "special consultant". The problem with Lucifer is that it doesn't seems to have evolved in any way, which might hit you as a surprise if you consider the countless possibilities.

Other similar shows have done it though, like "Second Chance", another buddy cop/special consultant series that overpassed my concerns and evolved to something better. Too bad "Second Chance" is going to be canceled, as I'm reading. Lucifer might stay, but honestly doesn't worth it. It's not bad. I would say it is probably good in the sense that...if Satan himself can be a humanist and a good person then maybe there is a hope out there for all of us.
