We all have those shows that from the beginning we just loved. You never really lost interest in it. For me that show is "Lucifer". I started this journey right at the very beginning in 2016 and I’ve been there ever since. I was even there for the #savelucifer campaign, which thankfully ended up working. I hate cliffhangers and that season three cliffhanger was a doozy. If you haven’t seen this show, then you’re definitely missing out. Don’t let the title fool you. What’s that saying?-- Never trust a book by its cover. Well that’s also true with shows. Now, yes it’s about the devil but not in the way you may think. He runs a very successful nightclub in LA called Lux along with his best friend/trusty demon Maze. Lux. What a name! Sounds like a place I’d definitely want to go to. He meets a LA police detective named Chloe Decker and that’s when our story begins. Though through the seasons you’ll end up with a few flashbacks and yes they’re pivotal for the story.
Dave - Dave Christy loves horror, music, documentaries and more. He is also the co-runner of several fan based groups including Morningstars (THE Lucifer fan group also run by Melanie), and now is a member of the VIPers Spotlight Lounge team for Melanie's Muses.

You heard of the show "Castle", right? Imagine "Castle" but Castle is the devil. That's basically the best way to describe the show "Lucifer". Now they don't just pluck him off the street to help just because they had nothing better to do. He was a witness to a murder of his friend and does a bit of his own investigating with his special talents. You'd think he'd have trouble keeping this dark secret, right? Nope. He pretty much tells anyone that listens that he is the devil. No one actually believes him though. If you met someone that said they were the devil, wouldn't you send them to Bellevue ASAP?
Before the show even aired, people started to freak out. Oh my God! A show about the devil! Cancel it! Well, guess what? It didn't work. Why would anyone to listen to people that never watched it anyway? This show epitomizes perfection. Everyone straight down the line. Showrunners, writers, cast. Everything falls in line. If one thing was out of place, it wouldn't have had the success it did. The devilish humor (yes, pun intended) add the right punches, in all the scenes without overdoing it and making it cheesy, making you groan. At its core, it’s basically a police procedural but one of the characters is, well, the devil.
I think by now everybody knows that I am a HUGE Lucifer fan! One of the founders of the Morningstars fan group - from Episode 1 we all knew this show had something special. I was very lucky that I was working with Voice of TV and then Telfie while Lucifer was starting off and I actually got to interview showrunner Joe Henderson before the Season 2 premiere. Yes - this cast and crew are as awesome as they look on twitter! I used to live tweet every Monday with them - and even won a Maze cosplay competition - It is safe to say I was hooked! As mentioned above Fox did the show dirty - and #SaveLucifer almost broke the internet! I was fortunate to be a part of that campaign and blessed to have inside info to know to KEEP GOING - and we did it!
I have made many videos about Lucifer over the years - right up to a spoiler filled breakdown of Season 5B - all the videos are at the bottom - Spoilers for them are announced so you can decide which you want to watch. The older videos are ummmm interesting lol.
That being said the Lucifer train hasn't always run smoothly for me - there have been a few times that I have been irritated with how things were going story wise! Season 1 is killer - I never tire of watching that ... Season 2 is good - and has some great moments .... Season 3 has some good episodes but the network wanted too many episodes and the fractures show! Season 4 is a masterpiece - Honestly I would have been happy if it all ended there! (Yes yes I know - pretty much no one else agrees!... Season 5 was 2 sections A and B - B was stronger in my opinion but I'm still salty - and the actual final Season, Season 6 airs tomorrow. Wonder what that will bring!
As Dave mentioned - when Season 3 originally aired on Fox, after the finale there were 2 bonus episodes. The Episode “Boo Normal” should be watched after S3 Ep 15 but before S3 Ep 16 (I am not sure why Netflix doesn’t take this opportunity to FIX it as they are streaming them) – and the other episode is a completely alternative reality “What If” type scenario so can really be viewed at any time. Personally I like it at the end of S4 as sort of a palate cleanser but most people watched it after S3. Fun fact – the episode is narrated by Neil Gaiman as God – which as he invented the Sandman world that Lucifer appears in in the comic books was a lovely touch. There are other references to the comics too through out the show such as the devil worshippers thinking he would be blonde (Lucifer is blonde in Gaiman’s versions). **
All episodes from Seasons 1-5B are streaming now with your Netflix subscription in the U.S. Season 6 will have all episodes available TOMORROW - September 10th!
