Fox Gives Its Master, Lucifer, His Own TV Show - Page 2

post #51 of 72

 Ellis does have charm to spare and I can see him as Bond.

 

I would love to go drinking with those four women. There is a rock/metal/punk bar, The Smiling Moose, in Pittsburgh Maze would love.

This got picked up for a full second season.  That's good news, especially since this second season has been much smoother and consistently entertaining than the first.  The tone has totally settled in to the point that the show feels cohesive...the 'crime of the week' elements are actually gelling with the more outlandish stuff.

 

Fun show.

I loved the scene of Dan doing his Lucifer impression at improve.

post #54 of 72

Yeah, that impersonation was surprisingly spot-on.

I'm weirdly glad that Lucifer is now officially bi-sexual. I didn't think Fox would have the guts to go there, to be honest.

 

"Gentlemen, start your engines" got a smile out of me.

Yeah, they showed a couple of scenes of dudes getting out of bed but they didn't explicitly say Lucifer boned them.

They alluded to it in the first season when he had 'The Devil's Threesome'...he had a man and a woman in his bed.   

 

Really fun show.  My wife wants Tom Ellis to be the next Bond.

I don't know about Bond but if he ever wants to play another supernatural trickster and Tom Hiddleston steps down from Loki...

 

This show has grown on me quite a bit. I didn't expect to like it but, now I've accepted it's not the comic, I've warmed to it. I think the whole cast does a really good job and the writers are now much more comfortable with backgrounding the case of the week (which is the least interesting aspect of the episodes) and foregrounding the main characters. Maze and Dan, in particular, have been a lot more fun this season. 

post #59 of 72

Agreed on all points.  To their credit, they took a look at what worked in season 1 and, more importantly, what DIDN'T work, and retooled the show into something that's actually pretty glorious.  It's flat out FUN.

 There where so many great moments in the last episode.

Maze getting pissed off by being called more human than most people.

"I don't make booty calls! The booty calls me."

"I'm not a two pump chump."

 

  I did like how hurt Lucifer was when he found he meant nothing to all of his sexual partners. There is more to him than being a horny quipster.

 

  As far as future roles for Ellis, while I can see him as Bond, I would love to see him play Crowley in an adaptation of Good Omens. Neil Gaimen is writing one for the BBC.

From your lips to God's (or Lucifer's) ears.  He'd be a fantastic Crowley

Thought this week's case of the week was one of the best ones they've done so far (but then I am a Saw fan). Great guest performance from Tim DeKay and a motivation I actually understood (even if it was crazy). They're doing a good job with this mini-trilogy. Hope next week lives up to the previous two episodes.

I really, really hope that this gets renewed for Season 3.  The ratings seem to be holding and improving slightly, so hopefully we'll hear soon:

Regardless, this is probably my favorite 'network' show on television right now.  I wouldn't have made that claim for season 1, but for season 2...yeah.  It used to be just Tom Ellis carrying the show on his demonic shoulders, but now everyone and everything is clicking perfectly like a well oiled machine.  The 'fun' factor is through the roof and still climbing.

 

I know this show has a very fervent following, and I hope that following is enough to keep this show going.

Yeeeesh...after the January 30th show, we're gonna have to wait until May to see the rest of the season.  Nice job killing momentum, Fox.

post #65 of 72

I read somewhere that the Showrunners are 99% certain they'll get renewed. Apparently Fox is quite happy with the show and how it's doing.

I was really expecting it to pull a Sleepy Hollow and we'd start seeing the wheels come off in Season 2, but that it's managed to improve to the degree it has is pleasantly surprising.

WHAT?

 

Ugh, just when I finally click with a stupid network show...

post #68 of 72

"Consular."

"Detective."

"Douche."

"Dick."

 

  Dan has improved a lot as a character since he stopped taking Lucifer's shit.

post #69 of 72

We caught up on this week's episode last night, the final of a sort of 'poison trilogy' and the last show until May.

 

This was really solid, and featured a lot of acting range from many of the actors.  Lucifer and Charlotte, in particular, had to dig deep for some highly emotional acting when they get stuck in Hell itself.

post #70 of 72

 I thought it was Trica Helfer's best performance on the show. It was also good to see Lucifer be more than a charming egomaniac.

post #71 of 72

Renewed for a third season.

post #72 of 72

Thought so / good to know.
