Meh. The new Lucifer looks like a poor man's Viggo Mortensen a la The Prophecy
. And the new Meg looks just like the old Meg...more bland, mildly snarky CW chicks in leather jackets and skinny jeans. Yawn.
I would've really loved to have seen Stuart Townsend as Lucifer. They were aiming to make him some kind of force of evil before ABC axed Night Stalker
(boo ABC), and he's got the perfect look: sexy, dark, evil, charming, but also wounded. But oh well.

Couldn't agree more. They already ask for a lot of license in their mythology - things seem less thought out and more improvised for fleeting dramatic effect. For ex., Castiel was so much cooler when he was calm and monotone and mysterious - very "I am a servant of the Lord," and that's all you get.
More Wincest and acknowledgment thereof on the show would only help it.
