Lucifer is based on a DC Comics character created by hilarious author Neil Gaiman along with Mike Dringenberg and Sam Kieth. The character Lucifer appears in The Sandman, but he later appears in a spinoff, also published by CD Comics.
The show is produced by huge names like Warner Bros. Television, DC Entertainment, and Jerry Bruckheimer Television. While the first season got some mixed reviews, subsequent seasons rated better.
In keeping with the Bible story, Lucifer Morningstar was a powerful angel, cast out of Heaven for his betrayal. He becomes the Devil, which is entertaining for a while, but he eventually gets bored and abandons Hell for Los Angeles.
He runs a nightclub called LUX and consults on cases with the LAPD. The show was created by Fox but canceled after only three seasons. Thankfully, Netflix picked it up and you can now stream all five seasons to your heart’s content.
If you love the sardonic humor of Lucifer, here are some other shows you won’t want to
It just about killed me when Hannibal was canceled. It irks me that really amazing shows get canceled before they’re really complete. We were left with such a cliffhanger that I feel like I can never really get my fill, no matter what else I watch.
However, if you liked Hannibal and you’re itching to fill that void with something else you may enjoy, here are some things that should go on your must-see list. They’re similar in all of the same haunting ways and will make you miss Hannibal a little less. Maybe.
The silence of the Lambs
This one is a given. If you’ve never seen it, you’ll be familiar with the main character. Your favorite cannibal is back (well, he never really went away) in this creepy original. No, it’s not a TV show, but you still have to watch it.
Romantic comedies, or Romcoms, as many affectionately abbreviate, are great feel-good movies that everyone can relax and enjoy. Sandra Bullock is no stranger to starring in romantic comedies, and she has starred opposite plenty of handsome hunks.
The Proposal features a successful editing executive, played by Bullock, who consistently looks over her male assistant, played by Ryan Reynolds, for editing jobs. Although he desperately wants to get his works published and feels like she’s his ‘in,’ he remains her loyal assistant through it all.
Even when she gets deported. This is where things really get interesting. To stay in the country, she claims he proposed to her, and they have to keep up the ruse with family and friends. As you can imagine, things go south on the wedding day, despite the fact that they’ve, of course, fallen in love.
It’s one of the best modern romantic comedies around, with an all-star cast you won’t want to miss. If you’ve seen it, you know h
Holy shirt balls, The Good Place fans! The show recently came to its dramatic conclusion after only four short but undeniably sweet seasons. The great thing about The Good Place is that it ended before character development fell flat and the writing got significantly less witty.
If you’re at a loss for what to watch next, you’re not alone. I mean, you want it to be a forking good time, because otherwise, it’s totally not worth it. After all, with such a loveable cast, it’s tough to move on to something else when you’re not sure it’ll live up to the last thing you watched.
If you loved The Good Place, there are a few other shows that share similar elements you may enjoy. All of these similar shows are fun, unique, and memorable in their own special ways.

Outlast 2 is, not surprisingly, a sequel to Outlast. Both are psychological horror video games, and the ending of Outlast 2 does a pretty great job of messing with your head. In fact, it was so effective, that I felt like an explanation might be needed.
We all finished the game and felt, well, lost. What just happened? That was the end??? Now what?
It’s difficult to find closure in a game when you don’t understand the ending, and it makes the suspense even harder to take when waiting for the follow up, if there’s even going to be one.
Once you understand the ending of Outlast 2, you may come to appreciate more than you might realize. It’s one of the greatest parts of the entire game. The developers left the story open to a different interpretation by every player who finishes.
While you may not have enjoyed the lacking narrative or the horror tropes, you should respect and appreciate the storyline that’s been so
