… isn’t that the point?
Fox has a new series called Lucifer and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. The interesting bits focus on Lucifer Morningstar living in the modern world, having abandoned Hell and building relationships with mortals. Sadly, it’s set against a cop procedural, which, well, blech. At least the performances are strong and the soundtrack is killer.
Noted group of self-important idiots and liars (these are the same people that went after Dungeons & Dragons, the Muppets, Disney, and Ellen Degeneres, for example of how much they hate anything progressive, topical, or fun), feel that Tom Ellis’ performance as Lucifer is “cool and irresistible to women.”
He’s the Devil, people. As Samael, he was supposed to be the most beautiful angel in Heaven, the Star of Morning. Of course he’s tempting. And anti-hero Satans have been common since Paradise Lost, so check yourselves.
Besides, if Lucifer can’t escape it’s cop procedural roots, it might just wither away due to apathy. Play to your strengths, show: work that awesome light-bringing magic you do so well.
