It’s such a shit show but I confess I do enjoy it. Will probably watch with the missus when we’ve watched the stack of shows you’ve not had a chance to watch yet.

Now that it's off of network TV, did they add any nudity/swearing? It would make it much more fun.

Not so far and I would hope they dont change it . People who like it it do so because it's a fun cheesy show . We dont need it to go dark and dramatic there's loads of shows for that.

I love how this show is the opposite from the extremely overanalyzed super fan attracting high profile shows. The show is a bit cheesy and a bit dumb, but it knows this all to well and is all the more enjoyable for it.

Also, Tom Ellis is brilliant.

Currently 8 episodes in and enjoying it. Tom Ellis seems to have been on the Thor superhero workout because he is huuuuuge!!!

Loved it.

Me too. Actually kind of think the overall quality was better with it being shortened down and the special FX were certainly massively improved upon.

Can’t end like that. There has to be another season and there are still characters they could use or that they teased about in that series. Like Michael, who Emenadeel must have a rivalry with, then you have Lilith mazakines mum. So much still to do.

I need more...

Yes. I thought they got the intensity without just rushing through the scenes. It managed to pull off that rare trick of having a couple of laugh out loud moments (particularly with Lucifer in the first episode) running alongside a plot that kept moving forward, and the character driven stuff.

the prophecy itself and maybe Lucifer face to face with the priest. I know the point of it was that his story had been vague but it impresses Chloe - and then later Lucifer as well. But that desire for more time might just be because I liked the Lucifer/Father Frank ep in S1.

As for the final episode. Obviously I want another season.

I thought that ending worked great as a finale or a cliffhanger.

Over the series, Lucifer has upset the hell/earth barrier and Amenadiel has upset the heaven/earth one - but things are left in a kind of balance again, albeit a fragile and temporary one.

Anyway, I thought it was good and suitably distracting :smirk:

I thought the new season was excellent - marked improvement on the last one, and I think they really benefitted from the switch to Netflix: the longer episodes, shorter season, the greater freedom in content (which they didn’t go overboard with), and it generally felt like they were working with a larger episode budget as the whole show looked and felt renewed to me.

Hope to see season 5 confirmed soon-ish.

You can't ask the ones who are still watching it - we like the show. I guess it depends on what made you pack it in and what you had liked about it prior to that.

S4 is tighter, punchier than S3 - but I even liked S3 - even the fluff episodes where Lucifer was scarcely devilish at all. He's definitely more devilish in S4.

And it gets renewed - a fifth and final season - by Netflix.

YES!!!!

My students got me into this show literally a month ago. I watched all 4 seasons before school let out so that we could have something to talk about the last couple days of school.

So happy to see a Season 5!

Ok, so finally watched season 3 and 4 fully.
Agreed with most in here, s4 was much tighter and worked with having 10 episodes. I think most shows would benefit from having seasons that have that many eps. Its long enough to get a good story, and short enough to make you want more.

I thought that ending worked great as a finale or a cliffhanger.

Over the series, Lucifer has upset the hell/earth barrier and Amenadiel has upset the heaven/earth one - but things are left in a kind of balance again, albeit a fragile and temporary one.
Really agree with this. but im glad were getting a season 5. I think the prophecy part helped the overall season arc.

Yeah, it gets into its groove imo after the first season as it focuses more on the longer term storylines.
 
Season 5 on Netflix - from 21 August

S5 starts on Netflix on 21st August. Apparently the first half (8 episodes) of the season will arrive as a batch.

The other half will appear later, at a date to be confirmed. More surprising perhaps, given it was killed off by Fox after S3, Netflix have already confirmed that it will get a sixth (and really final) season.

Just thought I'd warn you about this in case you need time to prepare. :wenger:

Also on 21st August - the Europa League final. Busy, busy, busy.

Ah nice, my guilty pleasure show. It's cheesy, it's corny and it's quite bad, but I love it all the same.

During the crisis with constantine?

Hope they finished this properly and no thread hanging. I hate how today's shows seems to never properly finish what they started
Think it will be. Given they have pretty much confirmed a sixth season and this was meant to be the final one (well previous one looked like it too as well, ha)

You know TV, they never let their golden goose really die, just incase someone willing to fund them for the "next season"

Yep, either ending it too early (cancelled) or going on too long (watering it down)

Great! And so a sixth season even. I had not seen that before. More guilty pleasure to look forward to. :)

I decided to watch the pilot after seeing this thread bumped.

I now understand exactly what people are saying. The show itself is a bit generic and shit, but characters and premise lend themselves to some really entertaining scenes. I'll definitely be sticking with it.

Started watching by this today and I'm almost done with season 1. I just can't stop watching even though it's cheesy as hell :)

Show gets better btw. Very 'villain of the week' to begin with. It still has the later but more interesting due to overall story arc which fits into it (IIRC)

I'm still on season 1, but my guess is that Chloe will turn out to be the second coming of Christ.
