Lucifer is back and he’s back with a bang. I’m keeping this free from spoilers but I will share some moments that I thought were great. The camaraderie between Lucifer and his mother is comical – especially when it comes to her attire and lack thereof.
The more I watch this show the more I see the similarities with this show and iZombie (another Vertigo title) – the procedural drama blended with the tongue-in-cheek humour and banter between the protagonist and the companion (Liv and Ravi in iZombie/Lucifer and Decker). The perpetrator is usually an obvious choice but, in my opinion, it doesn’t matter as the procedural stuff is a mere mechanism for the narrative to progress and keep the characters busy whilst the actual story unfolds around them.
Season two brings in a number of questions, namely centred around “Mum” and what she’s up to as well as Amenadiel whose path seems to have changed course.
Each episode seems terribly short – time seems to fly whilst watching and leaves a craving for more. Ideal for binge watching!
At the risk of running around the perimeter and stumbling into spoiler territory, the contrast between Lucifer and Amenadiel has changed. While Lucifer is becoming evermore human and empathetic to the human condition, Amendiel appears to be off on a different route due to what seems to be a major physical change.
I can’t wait to see what else this season brings.
If you don’t watch it, get on it. If you do watch it, share your thoughts below. Be wary of spoilers if you venture into the comments section!
