Lucifer (now on Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 5/8/19





Yes!!!

Link Here

The streaming service has revealed its first look at Tom Ellis' resurrection as Lucifer Morningstar. In the teaser, he emerges from a pool with a glass of bourbon in all his muscled-out hedonism before the words "He is risen" appear onscreen. In addition to making everyone thirsty as hell, the teaser also reveals that the series will arrive on its new home on Wednesday, May 8.

In the new season, Lucifer will be grappling with the return of the "original sinner" Eve, and she may or may not be looking for revenge for all that Garden of Eden tricksy business from so long ago. Meanwhile, he will continue to deal with the fallout from Chloe (Lauren German) seeing his devil face.

Netflix rescued Lucifer from the afterlife after Fox canceled the series last spring, citing its declining audience.

"Shows only need 3 seasons."

"We're saving Lucifer."

Uh huh

Re: Lucifer (now on Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 5/8/19

I gave up on the show after the very first episode after I saw it seemed like a buddy cop show where Lucifer bops around solving mysteries (nothing like the comic book at all). Has the show ever gone beyond that and become properly epic and biblical or not? Just wondering if I should bother trying it again.

It's a great show. Funny, sexy, etc... But based on your post I'd honestly say don't bother.

Yeah, there are biblical elements, but it's not proper by any sense of the word. If you consider Lucifer hanging out in LA running a nightclub proper I guess..

I don't know what "comic book" you're referring to, but this show isn't "properly epic and biblical."
I recommend you continue to skip it

This version of Lucifer spun-off from the comic book series Lucifer (DC Comics I believe), which itself was spun-off from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman.

I look forward to Season 4, I hope it serializes a bit more.

Correct, and yes DC. I loved Gaiman's interpretation of Lucifer and Hell in The Sandman. And based on what you folks are saying, I guess I'm still out as far as the show goes, unless I get really bored.

Re: Lucifer (now on Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 5/8/19

I really enjoyed the first couple of seasons of this show. Season 3, I've been struggling with, mostly because of the forced "Love story" between the main leads. I'm not buying that Chloe would have any feelings for Lucifer. I find him quite obnoxious and add to it that he's the literal devil. I also don't see much chemistry there. But I also think watching Supernatural for 15 years has burned me out on the whole angels and demons thing. I wish that show had cut down on it a few years ago, but diving into a similar show, even if it is more light-hearted, is tough to sit through. I'm not into the whole "Lucifer as an anti-hero" thing, either. It's a decent show and it has some very good episodes, but it aso has some stinkers. I'll continue to watch, if only because I like to complete something once I start it.

This premieres today on Netflix.

I'm about 10-12 episodes away from finishing season 3. But, I'd love to hear from anyone who chooses to start on this right away without spoilers if it's darker or edgier than the FOX version.

Re: Lucifer (now on Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 5/8/19

I’ve only watched the first episode so I’m not going to comment on it yet, other than to say it’s more of the same (which is a good thing).

That said, this season appears to be presented in 4K and Dolby Vision. The show itself is very grainy, much like a lot of other Netflix shows it doesn’t look to take advantage of 4K at all, looking worse than most properly mastered 1080p material. Also, whoever mastered it in DV made a lot of the scenes way too bright- it just doesn’t look right on my calibrated Vizio P65.

Lastly, the actor who plays Amenadiel looks quite ill. Does anyone know what’s going on with him?

So far, Tom's bare ass. Whatevs. But...I heard "shit"!!! I heard "shit". Anyway, It still feels like it's on Fox. It feels like they're going to commercial breaks when scenes end.

i just watched the premier too and thought something looked off with DV. There was one scene half way through that changed from overstatirated to dark. Itís like somebody forgot to turn on or apply DV. However, even if grainy, the opening scene in the club looked great in HDR.

Not sure with DB - maybe itís he more full beard? Does look like he lost a bit of weight.

Nice. End of episode 1 definitely raises some questions. I really wonder if sheís having legit conversations or if thereís some sort of shadow organization. Iím not familiar with the comics, but if there was a plot
Spoiler:
where the church is aware Lucifer is on earth and is taking steps to kill him, that could be very interesting.

I just watched an episode on my Sony 65XBR900E with my Shield. This is one of the only cases I've found where standard HDR10 on Netflix looks better than DV. Someone screwed up.

Aimee Garcia who play Ella is cute. The episode where she and Lucifer go to Las Vegas she wear a really short dress was pretty hot.

Yup. Hard to believe she's 40.

Re: Lucifer (now on Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 5/8/19

I'm mildly ashamed at how much I laughed at his episode 5 pun.

Spoiler:



So this season has been more of the same, but with more interesting mini-arcs and, in general, a better flow than it's had in a long time. Considering how much time jumps between some of the episodes, you can kinda tell they originally planned this out as a much longer season - and it benefits greatly from being shorter.

The thing that really sells this show are the facial reactions of the women. Maze and Eve are particularly expressive.

Blame the Almighty. It's been pretty obvious from early on that (in the context of the series) He intended Chloe being involved with Lucifer.

Shortest season is the best season.

I laughed at that pun too.
