“Lucifer” is based on the Vertigo Comics character created by writer Neil Gaiman, and artist Sam Kieth for the iconic Sandman series. The new tv show from Fox follows Lucifer Morningstar after he’s become bored of Hell and retired to Los Angeles to manage a nightclub.
I still believe a show like “Lucifer” would be better off on a channel like Showtime or Cinemax, but, I do like the teaser trailer. It’s a lot funnier than I remember the character being in the comics. Granted, it’s been a long time since I read Lucifer’s mini series or his long running monthly book.
I also like what I see because I’ve been a big fan of Lauren German since her all too brief “Hawaii Five-0” stint. She also played my favorite character in “Chicago Fire,” a series I dropped after she was killed off. So if nothing else, Lauren German guarantees I’ll be checking out the pilot episode at least.
