Watched half the episodes
Things I've liked so far that I remember immediately

The dinner scene in the first ep

The musical and how it went about

Haysbert as God and all the interactions with People realising he's God

The Dan episode and how it all played out

Also Maze is the greatest

Excellent season finale and even the penultimate episode.
Enjoyed 5b overall and a great binge

Dan death was done so well and especially the whole 'he is in Hell'

They've planted the seed of that other demon coming up to heaven so can see Dan being shown as a demon / sufferer in hell who can come to heaven over time

They also need to expand on Ellas stuff next season and her dark side

Theres another season after this? Thought this was the last season.

Makes sense if there's one more season after this to close out the character arcs properly.

Yep one more season
Think @jojojo explained it on previous page perfectly

My wit's end
This is such a stupid show. But I do enjoy it. And the last couple of episodes were pretty good.

I'm genuinely shocked that a concept like this can exist in a country as religious as the US. It definitely wouldn't have been allowed in the 60s or 70s. Probably not even up to 00s. The ending of season 5 really turned the blasphemy up a notch. I'll be interested to see where they take it. The fact we know that season 6 is the end should mean the writers have a clear idea about the direction the characters are going to take. As much as I liked Supernatural, that show's 15 seasons didn't help the to keep things interesting.

Just watching episode 2 of this second pet to season 5 - garbage. It keeping breaking into song is bullshit.
Sounds like you reached the musical episode that people have been talking about. :D As I dislike musical, I don't think I'll appreciate this one. I anyway don't think they do a great job at special episodes in the series; I didn't much like the detective/film noir one from the first part of S5 either. (I love that genre actually, I just thought it was poorly done.)

Looking for the answers...

Ive tried to avoid spoilers online so wasn’t aware others had complained. Honestly it’s just weird, very jarring.

I agree with you on the film noir episode too!

The bolded bit just sounds like any musical to me! :D

The musical was hilarious coming from a guy that hates musicals.

Bad to the boonnne, bbbbbbbbbbb-baaaad.

Just finished it, not bad. I just love this show for some reason. Tom Ellis is an amazing actor.

Welcome to Manchester reception committee
I like S5-b more than I expected to.

The first half of the season seemed a bit wooly to me, but then I always liked the discipline of a police case to investigate as the backdrop, with the character arcs implied in the parallels and the pauses. What we got seemed to be neither the cop story, nor the character story.

The second half of the season seemed to get into a stronger rhythm. Very much character and theme dominating, but with a stronger overall sense of direction, that made up for the relative lack of strong cop stories.

Ok, it's hard to imagine Lucifer wanting the God job for long, but I reckon he'll want to bring in some rule changes.

Lucifer recognises redemption, justice, fairness - he can survive heaven, Mr Get Out Bitch can get out of his hell loop. Mrs Goddess has invited Mr God into her universe. Maze has found her soul.

I can't see him leaving Dan in hell, maybe Maze will get the job of helping the (mostly) good guys escape their hell loops. A few swift rule changes in hell - maybe even a promotion/relegation system for the damned and a clean up of the angel hierarchy and he'll retire.

I don't know what he'll do with Michael though. No way can he be trusted to run hell, or Lux.

I for sure see Lucifer helping to turn Dan around and get him into Heaven. They have planted that seed with the other guy getting out of his loop with him no longer feeling guilty. I reckon we see Dan loop at least once and this then being broken.

Also as a unrelated thing, I really really want a cameo from Constanstine after we saw Lucifer in the Crisis crossover.

I just just love this show.
It isn't a masterpiece or anything, but it is a classic pop corn entertainment with a charismatic lead and an interesting set of supporting characters and an extensive storyline giving a spin to a well known mythology.

Just finished season 5B, and have to say it was entertaining and some of the episodes were really well made.
Being an Indian and having watched BW movies my whole life, I didn't mind the musical at all, especially given they gave a perfect explanation for it. Actually it was quite funny.

Can't wait for the finale season.

We have started with 5b now and we watched the musical episode yesterday. To my amazement, I thought it was actually quite funny - especially with the explanation they provided. I didn't quite like all the songs and performances equally, but all the same, a really strong episode. :)

I have a feeling that God's Plan was always that his rebellious son would get a rebirth as an angel only after he dies while getting burned in heaven sacrificing himself for a selfless cause.

And I hope Lucifer would be able to reunite Charlotte and Dan in heaven, damn his death episode was really a emotional wreck, Lauren is a fantastic actress.

Really got that dance number and b-b-b-bad to the bone with maize stuck in my head
By far the track I liked the least in that episode! :wenger:

I just watched the Dan episode. I got a bit bored halfway through, but the ending made up for everything! :lol:
