Lucifer: The Complete Second Season DVD Review
Lucifer Morningstar (Ellis) is a successful nightclub owner who happens to have a way with people. He manages to get them to tell him their deepest, darkest secrets, which can come in handy when working with the Los Angeles Police Department. He also happens to be the overseer of hell who has left his underground dungeon. Chloe Decker (German) is a homicide detective who gets saddled with the wisecracking, bends all the rules Lucifer (sounds a little like another show I know).
Lucifer seems to embed himself into Decker's cases and she can't get rid of him. Occasionally, he manages to help her solve a case or two. Along with Lucifer comes his demon, Mazikeen (Lesley–Ann Brandt; A Beautiful Soul) and his Angelic brother Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside; Romeo Must Die) while Chloe has her daughter Trixie (Scarlett Estevez; Daddy's Home) and her ex-husband "Detective Douche" Dan (Kevin Alejandro; True Blood).
Season Two opens with the addition of Lucifer's Mother, Charlotte (Tricia Helfer; Battlestar Galactica), who has escaped hell and is inhabiting the body of a human. She spends all of Season Two convincing her sons – Lucifer and Amenadiel – that she wants a family reunion when all she really plans is to return to Heaven to destroy her ex... God. Meanwhile, after Lucifer and Chloe share a romantic moment he discovers His Father (a.k.a God) has orchestrated the whole thing and put Chloe in his path from the very beginning leaving Lucifer both angry and confused.
The DVD set is three discs full of 18 episodes. Each episode includes another homicide crime to solve while Lucifer goes to therapy and figures out his "daddy issues". Along the way, he and Detective Decker have some serious unresolved sexual tension. Thrown in are Mazikeen's smart mouth, Amenadiel's fallen angel problems, Charlotte's scheming and Lucifer's Therapist, Dr. Linda (Rachael Harris; The Hangover) who really has some of the best scenes in the series.
The set also includes a few extras including Reinventing Lucifer: In the City of Angels, Lucifer: 2016 Comic Con Panel, a gag reel and unaired scenes. Fans of the shows will really enjoy each and every episode and extra. For those who own the season one DVD, this second Season is a must have. The series seems to be getting better and better so by episode 18, the cast has fans craving more.
Ellis is a perfect fit to play the most famous fallen angel. He is suave and sophisticated and his British accent will make female fans melt. Woodside is great as his brother with a conscience and Brandt is a little psycho as the tough as nails demon. However, the best of the group is Harris. While she doesn't have many scenes with Lucifer and Mazikeen, the ones she does have are always memorable.
Season Three is set to air in October so if you haven't finished Season Two yet you should buy it today. It's worth watching more than once.
