lucifer21smallLast week, we met the devil on FOX’s new drama, Lucifer. I don’t know about you, but I really enjoyed it. It was a lot funnier than I’d expected. Lucifer himself is hysterical in his…not evilness, but mischievousness, I think is the best way to say it. We saw it first when he bribed the cop when he was caught for speeding, and it lasted the entire episode. One of my favorite parts was when he was talking to police detective Chloe’s daughter, Trixie, and then scared the mean girl. All I could think was how good it would have been to have him around when I was in school. I also loved Lauren German as Chloe. She’s a great foil opposite Lucifer. It’ll be interesting to see their relationship (whatever that may be) develop. Of course, then there’s the issue of Lucifer being asked to return to hell… I’m not really liking Amenadiel or Maze yet. He’s kind of an ass and she’s kind of a…well, I won’t say it. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil,” when a movie star’s son is killed after being chased by the paparazzi, Chloe takes a deep look into the case with a little help from Lucifer. Meanwhile, Maze and Amenadiel continue to encourage Lucifer to go back to hell.

To see how Lucifer can help Chloe solve the case, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids Baking Championship, Superstore, Cake Wars, Ellen’s Design Challenge, & The Magicians.

xfiles21smallThe first 2 episodes of the new The X-Files event series were a bit mythology heavy, both dealing with a mysterious conspiracy involving the government possibly staging car crashes and making them look like alien abductions in order to steal babies from pregnant mothers and experiment on the children using alien DNA. (Just another day on The X-Files!) I’m sure the series will get back to that shortly, but tonight’s episode is a really fun monster-of-the-week, more standalone episode starring comedians Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords).

The episode is written and directed by Darin Morgan, who was responsible for some of the show’s odder, more comedic episodes, including “Jose Chung’s ‘From Outer Space’,” “War of the Coprophages,” “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose,” and “Humbug.” Even if you’re not an X-Files fan, I still recommend checking out tonight’s episode, as it’s a lot of fun and is a unique take on the werewolf tale, flipping things around in a completely new direction.

On tonight’s episode, “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster,” Mulder and Scully investigate a dead body in the woods and try to determine whether it was the work of a serial killer, an animal, or a mysterious creature seen by eyewitnesses. Meanwhile, a disillusioned Mulder confronts some of his own demons.

Check out the werewolves tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Superstore, Telenovela, Lucifer, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Angie Tribeca, and The Magicians.
