Lucifer Review: Season 1 Episode 1 "Pilot"

Lucifer Season 1 Episode 1

Lucifer has left Hell to take up a life on Earth. When a friend of his is murdered Lucifer joins forces with the god side of the law to discover who the perpetrators are and to give them what they rightfully deserve.

The Good:
A great first episode, it follows a lot of the same formula we are currently seeing with the DC Comic shows on CW and CBS. 

The Bad: 
Since there is only one episode there was not a lot to go off of. In many ways the show hit it out of the park with the first one and I am certainly going watch going forward. If there is one negative, Lucifer might get trapped in the Guy chasing girl/Girl Chasing guy routine. 

Final Thoughts:
One it looks like Fox has doubled up on the Comicbook shows, developing the Vertigo Comic for there Monday lineup. I enjoyed the first episode and am looking forward to more episodes but the expectation is high. Not only is Geoff Johns an executive producer, but so is Jerry Bruckheimer and Len Wiseman. 

I also find the casting of Tom Ellis to be perfect for Lucifer. I am interested in what he and Lauren German bring to the table for the two leading characters.

I give Lucifer Two Thumbs Up. Let us know what your thoughts are and leave your comments below.
