Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (57 ):
Kids say (122 ):

This dark but charming series uses loosely veiled biblical references, crime, and tongue-in-cheek humor to create a fictional world that blurs the line between good and evil. Tom Ellis' portrayal of the arrogant antihero Lucifer, who claims that he's largely misunderstood, is both captivating and troubled enough to make him extremely likable.

Fans of the comic-book character will appreciate this on-screen adaptation, but some folks will be disturbed by the overall show's representation of Judeo-Christian-inspired personages. Viewers who aren't bothered by this will find a show with amusing banter and fun plots that almost feel like a guilty pleasure.
