There used to be times when we had no options to choose from when it came down to watching movies and shows for our entertainment. However, Netflix has turned around things dramatically. Now, we have so many options that choosing the right show or movie is the most tedious task before us, and we need to schedule our viewing time in our weekly planner.
While the latest COVID-19 pandemic has turned our lives upside down, it has also left us with a significant amount of time on our hands. We can finally watch the shows and movies that we have always wanted to watch.
One of the best shows that you absolutely need to watch is Lucifer. One of the highest-rated shows, it has racked up a score of 8.2 on IMDb. The series is loosely based on the supporting character of Lucifer Morningstar introduced by Neil Gaiman in The Sandman series.
The devilishly handsome Tom Ellis plays the wisecracking Lucifer Morningstar. The effortlessly layered portrayal that brings out the suffering, vulnerability, and charm has won millions of hearts worldwide. The gripping blend of cheekiness and serious emotions paired with his smooth British accent helps him give credibility to the character.
Bringing a breath of fresh air to typical shows are the women. Each of the leading ladies is smart, witty, strong, and more than capable of holding her own, even with the Lord of Hell himself. One of the first women you meet on the show is Mazikeen, who used to be Lucifer’s First Lieutenant in Hell. She shoots straight from the hip and can kick some serious ass. Lesley Ann-Brandt has done a commendable job as the no-nonsense weapon-wielding protector for this Devil who always seems to be in need of rescue from trouble.
The female lead and Lucifer’s romantic opponent is Chloe Decker. She is a police detective and a single mother who is more than capable of taking care of herself. Are you thinking about a damsel in distress? Well, think again or watch the show to find out.
Additionally, one of the most important characters is Linda, who is Lucifer’s therapist. Rachel Harris plays her role to perfection, and you can almost visualise her becoming the much-needed voice of reason in Lucifer’s head.
One of the most compelling aspects of the show is the relationship between Chloe and Lucifer. The portrayal of the characters by the two leading actors is stunning. Their performance in the show makes sure that you find yourself rooting for this rakish Devil who owns a night club, and the witty detective to get together at the soonest.
