Estupenda comedia. Es destacable que esta serie haya completado su quinta temporada con la misma calidez del comienzo o incluso mayor aún. UnaEstupenda comedia. Es destacable que esta serie haya completado su quinta temporada con la misma calidez del comienzo o incluso mayor aún. Una comedia inteligente, con personajes atractivos y divertidos y una Julia Louis-Dreyfus que no para de crecer en el personaje de Selina Meyer y que continúa derrochando talento. Altamente recomendable.… Full Review »

There is no doubt in my mind this is a political show superior to House of Cards (also a great show put under the spotlight by the simple presence of Kevin Spacey).
Where House of cards pushes a dramatic but unconvincing reality of extreme machiavelism in its first 2 seasons, Boss neutrally describes what is power in a major american city. The show's convincing depiction of its subject, its realism (while in the context of the extraordinary dramatic context of the mayor's illness) leaves the spectator with an admirative (for the show) feeling of unease (for what it describes) towards the political system we live in.
It is a reminder that every political personality should be watched as a snake, if not because he is one, then because the person had to swallow so many of those reptiles to get into his position that it does not make much a difference in the end.… Full Review »
I feel as if Lucifer isn't getting it's due.

Why? Because too many people on here have a habit of, "It feels like a..." and they want to compare it with something else to either enhance the review or degrade it. Another bad habit that reviews here have is projecting: Wanting it to be something it's not and criticizing something for it not fitting in their, little "box" so to speak.
Lucifer is a growing character played by a talented actor that seems to have more than just acting as a talent, he plays piano and sings. The character is more sarcastic with only very hints of his old self, which makes him less like any standard fallen angel role.
Also, and i've got to point this out, this is not a "super" show. I've seen so many people, over other sites, criticize him for losing his powers and that it makes it "just another" (another HORRIBLE critic habit phrase) whatever show. Part of the whole ideal of this show is that Lucifer's understanding the price he's paying for being among mortals, it's part of the show...it's SUPPOSED to be part of the show.
Jeez, critics, stop "projecting".
With Season 2 hitting, i've seen people criticize the new character. Really people? One episode and you're criticizing them? They've not had time to grow and fill out. They need, at the minimum, 5-8 episodes to really find their place in a show or find their way out.
I saw Christian mothers go nuts, negatively, about this show but i find it's spin on biblical dogma to be very interesting. The "Big Bang" explanation really gave me a chuckle.
Amenadiel is growing as a character and we're supposed to be seeing him as "Luke Cage" later on through Marvel so i'm rooting for this guy. He's a great monkey-wrench in Lucifer's desperate efforts to make Chloe understand who he is....plus an occasional a$$-kicking scene is fun. Him making it with Maze made his role instantly more interesting because you KNOW he's got to answer to the boss sooner or later and that's going to be interesting.
Mazikeen is starting to find her own independence. She's going to be one of those "elemental" characters that's going to be in and out but timing, with her like some others, is key.
Chloe Decker is a good character but i was a little let down about her possible hidden origins. I was hoping that Lucifer getting affected with her around might make her a long-forgotten direct-descendant of Christ or something along those lines.
Linda Martin's character, the shrink, makes an interesting voice of reason among all of the chaos of the other characters. Her being still in the dark makes it all the better, she can remain who she is without understanding the truth and still get through to them.
And the music on this show, whether it's from an original artist or a cover by Tom or someone else, just makes this show even better....Two Dylan songs have already come across Lucifer's piano and i firmly believe that "Sympathy for the Devil" or "You Can't Always Get What You Want" are soon to come if they can procure the rights...it just fits.
I dunno where people align this show with Syfy shows, maybe they just don't have any more creativity than that but i wish people would use a little more critical thinking rather than just saying "It's just like X show".
Look, while Lucifer (to me, at least) is pretty predictable...it's the "good" predictable. It's a good show and i still look forward to every episode.
Look at it this way, anyone here, who has written a bad review...and you're still watching the show, well...i dunno if that makes you an idiot or a hypocrite but it doesn't make you a good reviewer. You trample a show and still watch it means you "know" you were wrong and don't have the stones to admit it...keep guzzling that "haterade"… Full Review »
