Netflix review: Lucifer

Taylor Ellison, Opinion Editor

In May 2018, FOX decided to cancel the third season of the show Lucifer which only a month later lead to Netflix starting up #savelucifer. This hashtag spread across the social media platforms and soon after Netflix picked up  the television show.

The show follows Lucifer Morningstar and Chloe Decker, the devil and a detective. Lucifer decided to take a break from being the leader of Hell and vacations in Los Angeles where he meets Chloe and begins to follow her around and help her with murder scenes.

Some of the other vital characters to the plot are Lucifer’s brother Amenadiel (who is also an angel) and the demon Mazikeen, his prized pupil, which are the only three immortal beings introduced in season one. Amenadiel’s purpose on Earth is to convince Lucifer to return to being the ruler of Hell, while Maz is there to be his trusty companion, and his right hand (wo)man.

Lucifer also has a therapist, Dr. Linda Martin. Lucifer does not deny to the humans he is the devil, but rather uses it as a pedestal, though nobody believes him. Lucifer tells Linda all of his issues with Amenadiel and his father (God), not holding back, so she presumes this to be a facade he has put up to escape reality.

Overall, this binge-worthy show keeps the audience on their toes. It brings a new perspective to the devil and his stereotypes. So if you are looking for a new show to watch on Netflix, check out Lucifer.
