Lucifer: Season 1 (2016)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Lucifer's got sex appeal, but the show's hackneyed cop procedural format undermines a potentially entertaining premise.

Tv Season Info

Bored with wasting time in the deepest pits of hell, Lucifer has abdicated and now resides here on Earth, indulging in all forms of guilty pleasures: women, wine and parties. But the most terrifying turn is yet to come when he finds himself developing the most spine-chilling human trait of them all - emotion.

Critic Reviews for Lucifer Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (15)

There's a lot of faux-coolness here; strip clubs where everyone has clothes on, a lot of snarky jokes met with "Oh you're just the devil," etc etc.

Jan 19, 2016 | Full Review…

With Ellis's scenery-chewing as its centrifugal force, Lucifer is a pulp fandango that revels in its inherent silliness and is all the richer for it.

Jan 26, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Protests have been heard against turning Lucifer into a good guy, but in fact, he's mainly just a smug jerk with a creepy smile. And as his reluctant sidekick, German is as bland as her counterparts on a lot of better shows.

Jan 26, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This louche Lucifer is mostly a cop procedural snooze.

We're left with a show that's as cheesy as it is ridiculously improbable.

Jan 25, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Welshman Tom Ellis plays the hell out of his lead role in Fox's Lucifer.

Top Critic

Aside from the story itself, Lucifer's pilot stands out among the 2015-2016 premieres. The music is an absolute perfect fit for the show... The dialogue is snappy and wry, and Tom Ellis is absolutely delicious as Lucifer, Lord of Hell.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Featuring the Devil in his most vanilla of forms, horror fans will be left wanting; Lucifer is disappointingly sparse on strong imagery.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Tom Ellis brings devilish charm to Neil Gaiman's Lucifer, but the show's cop-drama spin is unappealing.

Feb 27, 2019 | Rating: 6.9/10 | Full Review…

I can admit that I wasn't a fan of the show in the beginning. But the Devil has a way of getting under your skin-and I'm definitely looking forward to another season of Lucifer.

    tom ellis is just fantastic

    A promising concept with poor followup. The cop procedural was an unexpected, and unwarranted, twist that pulled the show's charm down along with it. The first season of Lucifer was mostly forgettable, but surprisingly not the end of the tale.

    Such a shame critics are so split down the middle on this first season, I really enjoyed it a lot, it sucked me right into the programme; I loved the relationship between Lucifer and Chloe, and how it develops over the season, the supporting cast are fabulous, Ella is a particular highlight, she's quirky and upbeat, and her cheery persona contrasts so starkly with her often grim role as a forensic scientist that it makes her all the more endearing.

    Not bad but the rest of the seasons are far better

    This show started as bad as most pilots. I fell asleep for the first 5 episodes. I woke up and something in episode 6 caught my attention, so I went back and watch episode 5 til it made sense and went back to 6. These two episodes seem to be when things start kicking off. From those episodes moving forward this is by far the best show I've seen a since Dexter. But where Dexter spun out of control and in the end destroyed its storyline, Lucifer continues to deliver all the way to the very end of season 4. I'm hoping so much to see a season 5 come to life soon. And am now rewatching a second time with my wife.

    Not as good as the show will get to be eventually; however, the things that are great about the show are great here. I give a lot of slack to first seasons most of the time because they are trying to find there footing, and this is one of the best first seasons of any show that I have seen. Tom Ellis always steals any scene he is in with his charisma, something lacking in most films or shows about the devil. All of the cast does a wonderful job, and I was glad to see Lesley Brandt in something other than Spartacus, and she does a great job with what she is given. There are some episodes that are a little generic, but for the few episodes like 'Pops', there are two 'A Priest Walks into a Bar'. The groundwork is laid here, so the mythology is not explored as much as later in the series, but it's excusable for me. Still, whenever Fox makes a comedic-drama they are almost certainly going to be in my favorite series. I have yet to see one I have not liked. Anything from: Glee, House, Prison Break, Burn Notice, and this are all great shows in my opinion. Go check it out, if you haven't already on Netflix.
