The one thing 2016 is being really good to me about? TV.

Lucifer. If you're not watching. GO WATCH. He's fabulous. The show is fabulous. I am in stitches every time. But it's also dark and human and intriguing.


Yes, that's right. FOX did by ep 2 what NBC suggested they might do in "20 years" with Constantine. And, I haven't read the Lucifer comics, but from what I can gleam via google, Lucifer isn't portrayed as bi in the comics? So FOX makes the devil bi (which yes, we can talk about how "evil" (male in particular) characters are more often portrayed as sexual minorities, but Lucifer is on a path perhaps to morally grey/goodish and is the protagonist), when NBC can't even acknowledge a canon character's bisexuality.

I honestly don't know if I'm most in love with FOX, with Neil Gaiman for creating the character, or Tom Ellis for playing him so spectacularly.

Me, right now:

I watched the first Lucifer, and I recorded the second one. Was hooked with the first episode. How awesome was X-Files Monday night? That lizard man thing. Most epic episode ever. LOL!

Fox is always quick to cancel shows. Lucifer better stick around! They canceled Almost Human with Karl Urban after one season, and I enjoyed that show too.

LOL! Excitement over new X-Files episodes! They are going too quickly though. Before we know it they episodes will be done. :-(

I'm ambivalent about Lucifer. How I love the character. He's hot and fabulous and just plain awesome. The show--meh. At the moment I'm considering myself frustrated. I want him to be in something else. I know that probably makes no sense. It's his show. I guess I just want his show to be better.

I wish I could put my finger on what bothers me about it. I guess I just don't find the cases engaging enough. I didn't even make it through last night's case. I liked the pilot better. I'm not giving up yet. He really is a good character. And so is the angel that keeps coming to pester him to go home. I'm not wild about the female cop; I actually like the shrink better, which I'm sure isn't the idea.

Thanks for the info. The pilot really didn't do it for me, but that's good to know. Can you give me some details? Did he have sex with a guy or is there some potential romance?

I am also a fan of how he does his whole "tell me your desire" schtick exactly the same with men as women.

Yeah, I thought about that in the pilot. And like you said, I'm sure straight men can more or less ignore it, but it's still more than anything the Constantine team >_> ever gave us.

I'm really surprised so many people weren't into the pilot.

From what I've seen, Lucifer (the character) left people either utterly charmed or completely disinterested. No middle ground. I'm part of the immune.

Also, most of the reactions I've seen come from bi women. I wonder if it works well on straight women and badly on lesbians.

I've seen two more positive reactions since then and I think both women are straight. I'm bi and it didn't work on me and it definitely made me think: "I'm so gay" (which I'm not, and bi isn't half-straight/half-lesbian, but you know, that was the inner reaction I got from watching this guy on my screen).
