^So, in the end, we started watching Lucifer
. On the whole, the series feels like it tries to be original and fresh, but then it gives in and succombs to the typical detective series cliches. Tough female detective who solves a murder in which the quirky male protagonist is a person of interest, and then they inevitably team up to solve other murders. It's a bit funny to see the main protagonist (who is literally the Devil) go bananas on some assholes though.
They make a shitload of references and jokes to Lucifer being, yknow, THE DEVIL, but after a while it just becomes a bit... dull
Still, it's a series that gets better as it goes on. The last 7 episodes (only 13 so far, but season 2 is coming) are pretty good to watch. The acting of the tough female detective gets better, and the relation between the two protagonists improves greatly once they forgo the whole "Lucifer tries to bang the detective" subplot (seriously, there was a sex reference every 4 fucking minutes).
Overall, I'd say watch it, it's pretty funny and Tom Ellis plays a damn good Devil.
Also the little 7 year old kid is the best character, period.
