Lucifer: Chloe Does Lucifer – Not What You Think It Is!

LUCIFER: L-R: Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Detective Chlow Decker ( Lauren German) in the ‘Chloe Does Lucifer’ episode of LUCIFER airing Monday, Nov. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. CR: FOX

Somehow, the ‘he’s the devil; she’s a cop – together they solve crimes’ basis for FOX’s Lucifer has managed to get well into its third season without showing too many signs of wearing thin.
This week’s episode, ‘Chloe Does Lucifer,’ does show a bit what seems like fraying around the edges before its final scenes show it just ain’t so.

This week on Lucifer (Mondays, 9/8C): After a lovely, mischievous season premiere in which we met Lucifer’s mum in the last scene, this week we get to see if she’s the celestial ball of savagery Lucifer thinks she is.

Liar, Liar, Slutty Dress On Fire shows us how Mum arrived on this mortal coil – after first showing us a few other arrivals (all looking for Lucifer). Needless to say, her arrival involves a murder that Lucifer is sure she committed.

The second season of Lucifer (Mondays, 9/8C) kicks off with a juicy murder – a TV star’s stand-in is found dead with metal horns stuck in her skull! Lucifer is certain it’s a sign that his Mother is out to get him.

Despite the task Mr. Morningstar was given in the show’s first season finale, things haven’t changed too much – Everything’s Comin Up Lucifer is a smidgen darker than all but the last couple of first season episodes, but the deeply disturbing whimsy is still there and the result remains highly entertaining.

Syfy’s three-night event series Ascension (9/8C) premieres tonight and continues through Wednesday. It’s the story of a generation ship that was launched in the early 1960s, taking a selection of humanity to a new home on a planet orbiting Proxima – because the ship’s creator/architect was convinced that the Cold War was about become hot and destroy the Earth.

BURN NOTICE – Tricia Helfer Interview Highlights


Today I participated in a call with Battlestar Galactica’s iconic Six (Tricia Helfer) to talk about her role in the July 10 premiere of USA’s new hit show Burn Notice. Of course Galactica came up as well and we got some great tidbits from her. The transcript from the call will be coming later this week. To wet your appetite. Here are some little tidbits.

  • Tricia will be in 7 Episodes of Burn Notice playing a mysterious spy. She’ll be in the first two episodes of the season, the season finale and a couple in 2009.
  • Her character is the public face of the organization that burned Michael.
  • She really liked the being on the set and said it was a real welcoming environment.
  • She talks a bit about the difference between Vancouver and Miami, Fl. Said she had to get use to it being sunny in Fla.
  • She has a list of DVD Sets that she wants to watch since she doesn’t watch much television. She likes quirky shows like Madmen and Weeds. Is currently watching Dexter, 24, and Arrested Development.
  • When asked if she uses the word Frak in her every day life she no. Primarily because her character on Galactica rarely says it. But Frak has become part of other cast and crew’s vocabulary.
  • She didn’t have to audition for the Burn Notice part. Matt called her up and said he had a part for her.
  • She’s shooting a pilot for a new Fox Television show called Inseparable. She’s playing a Psychologist to the lead. It’s about a cop who was shot and paralyzed. He develops a split personality one that’s crippled and the other one who isn’t. She’s not in the Pilot episode that much because they are establishing the main character.
  • She was great to talk to, wasn’t at all squeamish about talking about BSG and what her post BSG life will be like.
  • She will be at Comic-Con as part of a Cylon/Human couple. Doesn’t know if the Burn Notice folks will be doing anything.
  • She hasn’t been following the looming strike.

Escape Velocity opens with Chief Tyrol given a poignant eulogy at Cally’s funeral and ends with Gaius Baltar in a [for him] most unusual position. In between, this is one of Galactica’s most intense episodes – even though there are no great Cylon battles or even much action at all.
