Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Coming to DVD this week from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is the first season of the hit series LUCIFER: The Complete First Season.
Lucifer (Tom Ellis) isn’t having as much fun as he’d like to be so he decides that coming to Los Angeles might solve that problem. What ends up actually happening is he becomes part of the LAPD and that’s the easy telling!
Arriving in Los Angeles, Lucifer owns a very exclusive night club. When a pop star is killed in front of him it isn’t going to go down well. Using his powers, he helps Chloe Decker (Lauren German) who is a detective solve the crime.
Chloe and Lucifer work together again to solve another homicide and don’t think his Dad down under hasn’t taken notice. That isn’t stopping Lucifer from getting more and more involved with each case. Also with each case, Lucifer tries his charms out on Chloe who isn’t exactly swooning over him.
This life isn’t exactly as Lucifer thought it would be and Hell-Throne-Holder Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) isn’t making it any easier using Lucifer’s psychotherapist Dr. Martin (Linda Martin) in any way possible. He’s also being looked out for by friend Mazikeen (Leslie Ann Brandt).
But a huge decision is made by Lucifer when his wings are stolen and what he does with them puts Amenadiel in a twist. Chloe reaches out for help from Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) but Lucifer sees it all as another reason to find a way into Chloe’s heart.
Let’s not forget Malcolm (Kevin Rankin)! Part of the Palmetto case that Chloe and Dan are working on, he also becomes part of a murder mystery himself. But its Amenadiel who isn’t about to let Malcolm forget the reason he is even around in the first place.
It all comes slowly together as Malcolm tells Dan of Amenadiel’s plan which is going to cost one of them dearly. Lucifer has had about enough when he and Amenadiel get into it and the only stopping destruction is Mazikeen. This is keeping everyone on edge because Chloe is piecing together a murder that points to Lucifer and now her own family is in danger.
Lucifer, Chloe, Amenadiel and Malcolm are all about to discover that their fight is going to call upon a most unexpected and heavenly of favors!

TUBS OF POPCORN: I give LUCIFER: The Complete First Season four tubs of popcorn out of five. This is such a different series with continually unexpected plotlines. Of course it is a little boggling to the mind that anyone named Lucifer might do good things.
LUCIFER is based on the character from DC Entertainment and let us not kid ourselves – the ladies have gone berserk for Tom Ellis! This character is charming, intense, and humorous and doesn’t have a problem breaking away from the family business. Seriously, how could viewers not enjoy this series? Ellis is just charm wrapped up in a bad boy that is the ultimate bad boy!
German as Decker is such a great character because she is in the middle of the real world and the world no one (but Lucifer) else has experienced. Woodside as Amenadiel is a seriously intense character that kind of scares me when he’s standing there with his huge wings span and furrowed brow! Brandt as Mazikeen has the continual task of keeping an eye on Lucifer while keeping Amenadiel’s plans at bay. I’m sure it isn’t easy being friends of little hellions like these two.
Espinoza as Dan leaves viewers wondering most of the first season which side he is on. Rankin as Malcolm is awesome; I mean seriously, how many demons does it take to plan to off Lucifer…apparently just this one! Harris as Dr. Martin has her hands full and equally more so once the family secret it out.
The DVD contains the episodes The Pilot, Lucifer Stay Good Devil, The Would-Be Prince of Darkness, Manly Whatnots, Sweet Kicks, Favorite Son, Wingman, Et Tu Doctor?, A Priest Walks Into a Bar, Pops, St. Lucifer, #TeamLucifer, and Take Me Back to Hell.
There are also Special Features with this DVD including Lucifer: 2015 Comic Con Panel, Character Profile: Amenadiel, Character Profile: Linda, Character Profile: Chloe Decker, Character Profile: Dan, Devilish Duo, Lucifer Morningstar, Deleted Scenes and a Gag Reel.
The release of season one of LUCIFER is just in time as the new FOX line up begins soon with LUCIFER coveting the Monday time slot at 9/8 central. So gather up the gang and marathon the entire DVD before season two begins because secrets are revealed and charm will be doubled!
In the end –experience the devilish charms of the Lord of Hell!
