When The Devil Takes A Vacation

Like most people in this world, I’m a fan of good, enticing TV shows. The moment humor is added in, a show can only get better. I’ll be honest, too. When I first heard of ‘Lucifer,’ I wasn’t all that interested. After seeing many scenes on YouTube, I caved in and bought Season One’s Pilot for ‘Lucifer’ for a little under $3. I think this may be one of the best decisions I’ve made, as far television shows go. I’m certainly glad I bought it.

The entire episode was one uncontrolled laugh after another. Lucifer himself, even if he is the Devil himself, is an interesting character. He left Hell. He turned his back on his God-appointed job of torturing the damned and turned his sights on the human realm.

He is, in a way, on vacation for an unspecified amount of time.

And Heaven’s pissed about it.

I’m not sure if any of you have seen this show or watched this episode. I have no way of knowing which of you found it funny or found it to be an affront to your beliefs. All I do know, however, is Lucifer Morningstar is very unhappy when someone he cares for is killed in the beginning of the Pilot. This action results in him joining the police force, to a degree, to punish the wrong-doers in the City of Angels.

There’s humor, laughing and a lot of dirtier undertones that only can be expected when one thinks about the characters of this show. It’s all done with justice, however. And it’s done well. To a degree, I feel a great deal of sympathy for the characters already. There’s an undertone I can’t really describe, one that hints of other conflicts to come. I’ll see if I’m right or not when I get the time to buy the second episode.

However, I can’t help but laugh when Lucifer Morningstar discusses his name.

“Lucifer Morningstar.
Is that a stage-name or something?”

– Chloe, Season One Pilot

“God-Given, I’m afraid.”

– Lucifer, Season One Pilot

The irony of that statement wasn’t lost on me. Lucifer Morningstar, a Fallen Angel, is a force of nature that still answers, to a degree, to God’s will (or should answer to God’s Will, as far as his brothers are concerned). I find his name to be oddly beautiful. His actor is also rather charming and plays Lucifer well.

Lucifer’s Season One Pilot

For those who haven’t yet seen this show, I would recommend buying the first episode on Amazon. If you like humor, crime, and drama – then this show may be one you’ll like a great deal. I enjoyed it quite a bit. A show like this one isn’t one to look away from just because of who the characters are. It’s a show that’ll make one stop and ponder the possibilities of the world that is being built in the show.

I’ll be getting the next episode on my payday.

Take a chance on the show. You might just like it.

If you’re not sure, look up some scenes on Youtube.

And, if you’re like me, then what Lucifer says is so very accurate:

“I’m like walking heroine. Very habit-forming.
It never ends well.”

-Lucifer, Season One Pilot
