Hey guys! In May we had the pleasure of speaking with Sheri Elwood, a writer and executive producer for season 1-3 of Lucifer. We had cocktails and chatted about the show via zoom, from behind the scenes writers room action to what she hoped might one day make it into the show. If you like getting into the heads of the people that bring you TV, listen in! Big thanks to Sheri for digging in with us. Cheers!

Lucifer works on forgiving himself just in time for everything to fall apart: adorable baby Charlie is kidnapped, and hell has come to Earth. Everyone needs to work on their decision making and communication in these eps, but that's ok, the drama is pretty fun. We get a musical number (meh), a fight scene, and Lucifer going full devil. Hard to complain too much about a great season. Check us out next week for our interview with Sheri Elwood, followed by a season 5 predictions ep. Cheers!

On today's episodes, Lucifer breaks up with Eve and begins to define himself outside of his relationship with her or Chloe. After going to bat for humanity, Amenadiel is faced with his first experience with systemic racism and police brutality. During the course of this discussion, the movie Mary mentions is The Hate U Give and the case Alli discusses of the wrongfully imprisoned black teen is Kalief Browder. You can read more about him here or watch the Netflix documentary series telling his story (tw: prison abuse and suicide).

After Chloe puts her life on the line to save him, Lucifer realizes that he's maybe, not quite ready to be done with their partnership. This leads to an attempt to split his life in half: relishing in his devilish ways outside of work via partying with Eve and responsibility/maturity via his work with Chloe. Go back to therapy, Lucifer! You need it bud! Over with team angel baby, Linda assures Maze she's part of the family, while Amenadiel grows further from his. Up with Demon Auntie!

Jun 17, 2020

This week we're introduced to someone I like to think of as the anti-Cain: a side to a love triangle that doesn't suck. Welcome to the show, Eve! Chloe and Lucifer's relationship implodes after Chloe considers poisoning Lucifer, lies to him and remains generally freaked out by his devil-ness. Linda, Maze and Amenadiel have a wonderful B plot involving Linda's pregnancy. Ella and Dan are also there, but... are they though? Eve shows up just in time to encourage all of Lucifer's bad behaviors in the best way. Cheers!

Jun 9, 2020

After discussing what it means to be an admittedly imperfect & blithe podcast about a (supernatural) police procedural, we have decided to continue on with Lucifer. That being said, we will be discussing the implicit pro-police bias that a show like has a byproduct of its heroes being cops. Dissecting this bias is something we should have been doing before, & will be a feature of the show from here on out. We wanted to jump into this topic immediately, and as such postponed our Sheri Elwood interview. 

Jun 2, 2020

Hello listeners! We had planned on releasing our interview with Sheri Elwood this week, but circumstances in the United States being what they are, we did not feel it's the appropriate time for our general lighthearted discussion, when the focus should be on the protests and Black Lives Matter. Television is a reprieve, but there are times when we have to look at painful reality, and we feel this is one of them. We will reassess next week. Best, Alli and Mary.

Things are AMPED for the season three Lucifer finale: Pierce is exposed as a dick and Lucifer is exposed as the devil. Other big changes are afoot as Charlotte shuffles off this mortal coil to heaven, with Amenadiel regaining his angel wings to escort her. RIP girl! These episodes are a wall to wall blast. Also, stay tuned for a special ep next week: our interview with former Lucifer writer and exec producer, Sheri Elwood! Cheers. 

May 19, 2020

This week on the pod, we discuss the semi-dreaded Chloe/Cain relationship, which goes from 0 to 80 back to 0 to 100 and finally back once again to 0. While Chloe is dealing with the emotional whiplash, Lucifer is off losing his sh*t during an attempt at an emotional breakthrough. Maze is still pissed, Charlotte and Amenadiel are friends now, and Dan is somehow the most emotionally mature around. Congrats on your win by default, Dan!

May 12, 2020

Season three continues its own little hell loop for Lucifer, as he gets close to chloe-->get scared and push chloe away-->oops she's too far away--->looks like I've blown it. Unfortunately for him, Pierce/Marcus/Cain is there to pick up the pieces as Chloe semi-reluctantly agrees to date him. Meanwhile, Maze takes a dive off the deep end and Charlotte gets the deets on her missing time.

May 6, 2020

Lucifer and Chloe work through their issues while Pierce/Cain becomes moderately more interesting this week, but that's sure to change again soon enough. Amenadiel is on fire this week: he kicks Cain's ass, successfully predicts the end of the season and avoids getting dumped. Congrats pal! Cheers.

Apr 28, 2020

Lucifer S3's first arc comes to an end, & while it's not exactly a whimper, it's also definitely not a bang. The sinnerman is just some guy, working for Cain, who is Pierce & actually the Sinnerman, except we don't really care about the sinnerman now. Linda & Amenadiel are horny & Maze notices; she's displeased. Chloe agrees to an Ocean's 11-style stunt to appease Lucifer, only for him to double back and betray her trust. But really, all you need to know is Pierce=Cain and the sinnerman is nothing. Cheers!

Apr 21, 2020

Lucifer season three continues it's flirtation with an overall plot; this week, we're in the playing hard-to-get phase. Sinnerman who? Never heard of him. Instead, we're spending some time getting to know the real Charlotte Richards while Lucifer regresses to his early season two emotional state. Still, there are some great eps and moments here so we're nowhere near iZombie levels of plot frustration. Cheers to that!

Apr 14, 2020

We're getting into Lucifer season 3 this week by talking about the first four episodes. The season plot isn't much more than a blip on the radar: we're briefly introduced to the concept of the sinnerman, but it's mostly dropped for episodic murders. Lucifer has wings, but no devil face; Chloe's got problems with Pierce, the new boss; and everyone else is mostly just treading water. Kinda makes you miss mum, doesn't it? But hey, it's quarantine, so grab a drink and let's get through it together. Cheers!

Apr 7, 2020

We've reached the end of Lucifer season two, and the end our time with Mum, long may she reign in her own universe. Chloe investigates mum's various accidental crimes while team supernatural is deciding what to do with mum and the blade. Linda gets caught in the crossfire, with Amenadiel to the rescue. Lucifer boots mum out of our reality, and promises Chloe that for real this time, he's gonna come clean. But oops, he's dropped into the desert with a back full of surprise. 

Mar 31, 2020

Week two of remote recording continues as we near the end of Lucifer season 2. Lucifer, in what we discuss as misguided attempt to protect Chloe's power of choice, gets married to someone else. Chloe is endlessly forgiving, so they return to being work partners. Later, in one of the show's best one-off eps, we meet God. Or do we?? Send us your thoughts if you have them! Cheers.

Mar 24, 2020

To start, we want to acknowledge the audio quality for this ep is not up to our usual standard. Due to COVID-19, we are under a safer in place order here in LA & are working through recording remotely. Things will improve every ep. Thanks for sticking with us! Over on Lucifer, things have escalated greatly. Deckerstar is basically a go, until Chloe's miracle status is revealed. Lucifer takes a quick trip to hell with the help from team supernatural, & then peaces from Los Angeles entirely. Poor Chloe. 

Mar 17, 2020

As we talk about constantly on the show, Lucifer is great for a Netflix binge. We suspect with the goings-on in the world currently and various quarantines this will be more true than normal. Join us, you'll have a blast! This week, we've got Chloe and Lucifer growing closer, much to Mum's chagrin. Dan gets it on with the goddess of all creation. Maze learns that satisfaction comes from within. Oh, and Chloe is a miracle. Cheers!

Mar 10, 2020

This week on Lucifer we meet a new member of the celestial family, and he is not out here for fun times and wacky hijinks. In fact, he wants Lucifer to choose: send mum back to hell, or chloe will die. Lucifer chooses option three, killing his bro, sending him into a misery spiral that ends with him twinning Dan. Meanwhile, Linda is fully looped in on the devil situation, and Maze becomes a bounty hunter. Chloe's got some dad drama, too, but she handles it. 

Mar 3, 2020

Mum's here! Is she good, is she bad, is she played by Battlestar Galactica's Number Six? The answer is yes, and she (along with bubbly Ella) makes an excellent addition to Lucifer. Luci, Amenadiel and Maze deal with the mum problem, as Chloe and Dan get back to work and we wave goodbye to Palmetto: RIP, you were basically meaningless. Chloe and the main cast ladies have a drunk girls night, and Alli and Mary join in with shots and beers. Join us! Cheers.

Feb 25, 2020

This week's Lucifer finale meets with the end of Palmetto, which rapidly loses any real relevance to the story. Lucifer is out and about, trying to figure out what the deal is with Chloe and having a genuinely terrible day. Amenadiel makes the smart choice of taking on a new personality and helping Lucifer out of his myriad troubles. A kidnapping, shootout and deal with God later, not much has changed except one little escaped prisoner: mum! 

Feb 18, 2020

After a set of episodes last week that dealt with Lucifer's personal growth, this week we have a trio of episodes that focus on the Chloe/Lucifer relationship. First, Lucifer makes and loses a new friend, then Chloe gets dumped over text and finally we get the focus on a word that will repeat so much over the show you won't believe it: vulnerable. What makes Chloe Decker so special? Grab a drink and join us dissecting these great eps. Cheers!

Feb 11, 2020

Alli and Mary chat episodes 4-7 of Lucifer season one this week. What's amazing about these eps is the clear beginning of an arc that culminates in Netflix's season 4: who is Lucifer? Who has he been? Who does he want to become? These episodes deal with the protection and then rejection of his wings. Meanwhile, Chloe's ghosts come back to haunt her, literally, as Amenadiel pulls some not-so-angelic shenanigans. Grab a beer and join us! 

Feb 5, 2020

Alli and Mary are back, and for our new season we're discussing Lucifer, your traditional male/female cop show with a biblical twist. Can this show be a little cheesy, a little sleazy and a touch formulaic? Well, sure, but it's also a ton of fucking fun. A silly premise is presented with an earnestness and care. The cast is dope. The music is a blast. This week, we go over the first four eps of season 1 and talk Lucifer's powers, the Los Angeles worldbuilding & the intro of our main characters. Also, FINALLY someone is getting therapy up in here. Damn.
