Fox will be the next network to give one of the DC Comics Vertigo properties a go with the show “Lucifer” that airs its pilot episode tonight. Check out the poster, premise and cast and then we can discuss it briefly before you program your DVR.
The Premise: The series will focus on Lucifer, “who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell and resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the beauty of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals”.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I didn’t really read the “Lucifer” series that came out on Vertigo outside of an issue here and there but I enjoyed how it connected to the Sandman mythology. Of course it might have made more sense to connect it to that of “Constantine” but oh well. Fox seems to be doing well with “Gotham” and while this is an entirely different thing from what we should expect in “Lucifer”, I hope that the comic fans that are watching that show will give this one a chance. We’ve lost “Constantine” as a show already but fortunately he’s turned up in “Arrow” since then and my crossed fingers are generating their mojo at his being used on the other shows that DC has running on the small screen. Only time will tell if this will have some legs or will be a single season series. What do you readers think about this one? Let me know in the comments section.
