Lucifer on Fox: A confusing ride

The new buddy cop show debuted recently in the name of Lucifer. As you can guess, the show centers around Lucifer the Lord of Hell. Or as I should say, the retired Lord of Hell. Airing on Fox, Tom Ellis stars as Lucifer Morningstar, the debonair and wildly charismatic recently retired Lord of Hell. Lauren German is an unknowing police officer who thinks Lucifer is just a very weird samaritan.

Lucifer seems to be trying to blend the Lethal Weapon style mismatch partners and the Elementary style of a consultant to the police. This style doesn't fit the supernatural element they're attempting to introduce as well, with repeated visits to Lucifer by an angel demanding he returns to Hell.

With the very confusing and unique theme and the fact that One Million Moms is already boycotting an advertiser, it seems only a matter of time before Fox cancels the show. Until then, it will be interesting to see if Lucifer can recover and turn itself into a must-see event.
