Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 8

“Trip to Stabby Town” Lucifer dials down the emotional intensity as the consequences of the death of Uriel still linger on for all concerned. When I say that the emotional intensity is dialled down I don’t mean that this episode is a laugh a minute but it is a significantly lighter affair than we’re used…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 7

“My Little Monkey” Lucifer lets Chloe take centre stage as she reopens old wounds by looking into the truth behind her father’s murder after thinking it had been solved years ago. I have repeatedly mentioned that Chloe doesn’t get enough to do on this show so I was glad to see an episode that is…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 6

“Monster” Lucifer deals with the fallout of the titular character killing his brother as he and Chloe investigate a Halloween themed case. You’d be forgiven for assuming that this episode was going to have a distinctly comedic edge judging by the opening sequence where a couple got married while made up like zombies. Normally something…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 5

“Weaponizer” Lucifer continues with the supreme being dysfunctional family angle as God sends an Angel to collect on Lucifer’s failure to live up to his end of the bargain. This review is very late, so late that there’s almost no point posting it considering how close the next episode is to airing but I’ve pledged…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 4

“Lady Parts” Lucifer spends some time setting up future plots for the rest of the season while dialling back the intensity and family drama. So far, Lucifer has been on a high this season. The introduction of Tricia Helfer’s Charlotte has been a great thing for the show. It has definitely excelled in delivering on…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 3

“Sin-Eater” Lucifer continues to deal with having the mother of the Prince of Darkness in the picture while defining why Lucifer still punishes people. It’s a question that the show has never tackled before and possibly didn’t really need to. Lucifer continues to punish people because he’s the Devil and that’s what he does. This…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 2

“Liar, Liar, Slutty Dress on Fire” Lucifer returns again after a random one week hiatus immediately following the season premier that ended on the cliffhanger of Lucifer’s mother showing up in distress. Casting Tricia Helfer as Lucifer’s mother is a bizarre choice that entirely makes sense for this show. Having her play off Tom Ellis…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 1

“Everything’s Coming Up Lucifer” Lucifer begins its second season with a sense of urgency over the Devil’s mother being on the loose  in “Everything’s Coming Up Lucifer”. Returning readers may remember my strained relationship with this show during season 1. When Lucifer’s good it’s really good but it’s also prone to being really frustrating. There’s…
