The TV series 'Lucifer' is loosely based on a comic book of the same name in which the Devil himself becomes bored with hell and comes to Los Angeles and starts a bar/night club. Lucifer has been a television character before on the show 'Supernatural,' but in this show, Lucifer takes center stage.

The story

In Season 1, Lucifer, played by Tom Ellis, started solving crimes with Detective Chloe Decker, played by Lauren German, for the LAPD.

His assistant (Maze), a demon sworn to protect Lucifer believes that if he continues solving crimes, he will only become more human. Maze, played by Lesley-Ann Brandt, wants to return to hell and can only do that if he returns. His brother, Amenadiel, comes down from heaven to tell Lucifer to go back to hell. Lucifer refuses and continues solving crimes with Detective Chloe Decker. In the season finale, Lucifer asks his father, God, to save his life and in return he will do God's work. God saves his life and then sends him and his brother on a mission to find their mother; the one person he is afraid of.

Review

Obviously, I did not go over everything that happened in Season 1 if anyone needs to catch up or wants to start watching for the first time. Despite the subject of the show, the show is quite funny. It doesn't go into too much detail about religion and what is right and wrong. The show actually makes you want to root for the Devil. It sounds strange, but in the show, Lucifer is actually interesting and more complicated than what the bible has you believe.

Since this show is not based on the bible, religious groups should not worry about sending teenagers the wrong message. Despite what religious groups might think, Lucifer is a likable and somewhat relatable character within this show. He really does his best to punish the wicked. The special effects that are used on the show are very well done. The acting is great. The writing is really well done.

The show is worth checking out. You can find it on Fox, Monday Nights at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
