I happen to watch the first season of the series named Lucifer which premiered on 25 January, 2016.
It is an American fantasy police procedural comedy-drama television series . The series is about the experiences of the Fallen Angel, Lucifer who out of boredom decided to take a break from the kingdom of Hell and takes up residence in the happening city of Los Angeles. He gets his kicks by working along the LAPD and punishing the criminals.
The protagonist who plays Lucifer is a 6’3 feet tall and insanely charming Tom Ellis, who has a sexy accent making him irresistable to ladies. He does justice to the belief that women love the witty, dark fictional men characters.
So what makes you fall for the Devil, is the bluntness and straight forwardness he portrays making you explore the whole binary of Good vs Evil in a completely new light.
The character makes it clear that he, the ruler of the dark kingdom doesn’t force people into making bad decisions or choosing evilness infact all the devil truly does is make you aware and bring to surface your deep desires which often you suppress into that unconscious realm of your brain by compelling you to speak the truth. Like the Bible states – God made man and gave him a control on his life and actions by giving him reason, Lucifer too doesn’t exercise his power to force man into committing sin but by making him aware of the desires which are by principles forbidden, gives him a chance to make a fully aware decision.
Lucifer somewhere struggles and manages to make the viewers realize that he has alot more to do than convince every human to choose evil, he is the one who punishes the sinner.
It’s strange how the mere fictional character helps you develop a deeper insight about the whole good vs evil binary, hinting somewhere in the middle that maybe it was God’s plan for Lucifer to Fall in order to eventually Rise.
The task given to the devil itself is a tough one and maybe that was the plan of God. It is like the acknowledgement of black is only in contrast to white.
In a world where people openly voice their faith, Lucifer both the series as well as the character provide an all together a different lense to view the age-old told biblical mythology in a completely new aspect.
Lucifer emerges out to be a witty, quirky and somewhere interesting character along with being bewitching and heart throbbing.
The second seasons will be on air soon in somewhere around September 2016 and we cannot wait for it any longer.
