Go Back to Hell, Lucifer. You're Embarrassing Yourself.

What a shitshow

I just read that Fox has renewed its "adaption" of the Vertigo/DC comics series Lucifer for a second season. I use 'adaption' in the loosest possible sense, in that rough contours of the long-running comic series can be gleaned from time to time in the TV series, but they're buried underneath an almost unimaginably-inappropriate (and gag-inducing) police procedural.
