Darlings you’ve got Glamour and I’ve been feeling rather amazing today!! Why? I don’t know but I’m venturing into strange territory today… Something with…dare I say… actually people on the screen!?! Well I do dare say because it’s one of the few shows I actually like enough with actual people to continue watching! Now let’s get started my dears.
Theres a sexy little night club in LA named Lux where the Devil is seen playing the piano and sings going through girls like sex would soon be out of style. Lucifer Morningstar is on vacation since he’s tired of being known as the most despicable creature in the universe. So he does what anyone does and tries to make a new start in LA. During that time he facilitates deals making people famous and wealthy. Not necessarily happy but well as they say money doesn’t buy happiness but I’ll spare you anymore of that spiel.
Lucifer starts off talking to one of his many deals a young lady named Delilah and after collecting on the favor she owed him her life is snuffed out right before his eyes so after being questioned by the police he takes up the investigation himself. Meanwhile the attractive Detective Chloe Decker is on the case and is urged to close it due to the amount of press that the case was getting and because she was still receiving heat from a previous case…
As she is constantly being reminded of by her ex-husband while they discuss just what to do about raising their daughter Trixie. Although honestly what can one do about a little girl learning values from Lucifer. Although he doesn’t tell her anything like ‘kill people’ or anything dumb like that. He encourages her to stand up for herself and even steps in to help her against a bully after hearing that the young girl kicked the bully (and larger girl) in the no-no touch square but also in a way tells her to go for the things she wants. Throughout the series you see Lucifer learn more and more about himself while being intrigued by Detective Decker as he invites himself to show up at her cases much to her dismay…although she still has to admit the cases get solved and theres never a dull moment with Lucifer Morningstar. Meanwhile Maze the demonic lusty female bartender just wants her boss to go back to hell with her.
In passing conversations I’ve had about this series when asked about the main character and how I would describe him. The acted used is Tom Ellis and does a fine job of adding some British flair to the role. As for character notes I essentially tell them to expect a super natural version of Tony Stark with powers of persuasion versus a suit. All in all I’ve enjoyed seeing this character grown from cases, to his visits with his sex starved psychiatrist, and even becoming a victim himself. This series has even made me take a deeper look into myself taking a look at what makes me…well me. Well my dears after all that I would definitely say this show is Hatter Approved!
Disclaimer: Even with the possible religious implication for this show I am now and shall remain an atheist. If you have an issue with that I will reissue the warning from my write up on Angel Sanctuary ‘if you feel inclined to discuss my beliefs or lack thereof…don’t’.
With that my dears this hatter is OUT!
