Lucifer (TV)

I'm in two minds as to whether to carry on with this TV series beyond the first episode. Don't get me wrong, it's entirely watchable.The premise is intriguing for anybody who likes a bad boy: Lucifer is sick of hell, so he comes to live in Los Angeles and ends up helping the police department solve crimes, He has a cool superpower: people tell him their most secret desires. Except this superpower doesn't work on the police detective, which makes this a perfect setup for romantic tension.

Still, episode one didn;t give me any impression of a bigger story. Sure, those in power want him back in hell where he is needed. But the whole thing has a formulaic feel to it.

Happy to be proved wrong.
