I've been binge watching Lucifer on Netflix. He has way bigger problems
getting back in to Hell. And he keeps on cutting off his wings so he
cannot go back without dying on Earth.
Is that based on the DC Comics Lucifer, or an original?
DC Comics Lucifer. It was on Fox for three seasons and Netflix added
two more seasons.
Ah, OK. I liked it when Gaiman did him in Sandman, and I think I read a
few issues of the comic. I just find I watch very little video at home.
It's not bad at all. The guy who plays Lucifer does so with just the right mix of humour and menace. The support cast are all pretty good too. Some of the storylines are great while others are... not.
It's based on the Gaiman character from Sandman, in that it picks up the story of Lucifer where Gaiman left him in Sandman, running a nightclub in LA with loyal sidekick Mazikeen. Gaimian had very little to do with it but does make a guest appearance at one point playing the part of God.
It lost its way a bit in season 3 and got cancelled. Netflix picked it up and season 4 was only 10 episodes and much more focused for it.
It's been renewed for a fifth and final season, which I'll be watching.
