DVD Review: Lucifer: The Complete Third Season

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Lucifer: The Complete Third Season stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Tricia Helfer, Aimee Garcia, and Scarlett Estevezwith Tom Welling and Rachael Harris. Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo from DC Entertainment, Lucifer is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television. Tom Kapinos developed the series and serves as executive consultant.  The series is executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Joe Henderson, Ildy Modrovich, Kristianne Reed and Sheri Elwood.

Entering its third season, the story of the original fallen angel continues.  As Season Two came to a close, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) took care of a little problem called Mom, aka Charlotte (Tricia Helfer). But now he’s facing an even greater challenge – finding out who kidnapped him, and why his angel wings are back.  In addition, Tom Welling (Smallville) joins the cast as Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant who is everything Lucifer is not – strategic, reserved and well-respected. But perhaps even more annoying are all the things they have in common. Both men are charming, charismatic and handsome as hell. So, when Pierce starts developing a connection with Chloe (Lauren German), Lucifer’s devilish traits are inflamed.

The strong points of the series continue to be the smart writing and the talented cast that brings these interesting characters to life on the small screen. The stories are a lot of fun and things never really get too dark, considering the source. You know, the devil is freaking evil! The series itself is charming and quite devilish at times (no pun intended) but it does have its darker moments every once and a while. The third season picks right up where the second one left off, Lucifer has his wings back and doesn’t know how it happened. Not only that, but he’s stuck with them this time because everytime he tries to cut them off, they grow back. This is one of the main mysteries this season Lucifer has to deal with. Watching Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) take all of these cases and solve them is a lot of fun. There’s a shady character called the Sinnerman that plays an important part to the big picture this season. The third season also introduces Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling), the new police lieutenant who appears to be a nice guy in the beginning but this new character has a lot of dark secrets he’s keeping and they all end up surfacing. He also catches the eye of Chloe and Lucifer doesn’t like it one bit.

Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) somehow finds her way back to Los Angeles but she’s not the same person this time around and Dan (Kevin Alejandro) ends up getting the hots for her. Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) has fun being a rebellious bounty hunter but she’s torn between good and evil because all she really wants is to go back to Hell and will do anything to get there, even turning on her friends. The relationship between Linda (Rachael Harris) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) continues to grow this season but a third wheel comes into the picture. Linda knows everybody’s secrets but somehow keeps it all together and is there for them when they feel the need to vent. Amenadiel finds himself in a few new awkward situations this season plus he also gets his wings back but unfortunately it’s because of a tragedy. Everything this season leads to a major confrontation between Lucifer and the new big bad and Chloe is caught in the middle of it. Lucifer finally finds a good use for his wings and the big shocker is that Chloe finally gets to see his “devil face” in the final moments.

The packaging comes with a nice slipcase. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes season three details, some images and list of special features. There’s also an inesrt inside that includes a list of the episodes with synopsis, more images and series credits. All five DVD discs also include artwork that features the devlish main character and series logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Lucifer: The Complete Third Season continued to be a lot of devilish and charming fun as we get to follow more adventures of the charismatic fallen angel who has found his way to Los Angeles and is fitting in quite nicely with the human race. The writing continues to be the strong point for this character driven supernatural drama that comes with a dark sense of humor. Lucifer features some silly moments that are all courtesy of the mischievous fallen angel and never takes itself too seriously. There’s a few special effects here and there but the series doesn’t rely on it too much. I really like the strong chemistry between the characters played by Tom Ellis and Lauren German as well as the rest of the cast. All of the supporting cast gets their own story arcs with their characters and Tom Welling was a nice addition this season. There’s a whopping 26 episodes in Lucifer: The Complete Third Season that’s now available on a 5-disc DVD set and is worth checking out. The third season is also available on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Archive Collection and can be found at Amazon.com and all major online retailers.
