Abyss – May 6

Abyss is a weird looking, whimsical, science fiction/fantasy Korean series about two people who are resurrected into new bodies after their death. While Cha Min (Hyo-Seop Ahn) is respawned into a sexier, more handsome body, Ko Se-Yeon (Bo-Young Park) finds herself in a body that “lacks sexiness but seems amiable.” She’s cute, but not the bombshell she was before her tragic accident. Its a simple lesson in vanity. It looks fun and romantic but there also seems to be some kind of mystery involved regarding the cause of their deaths. A killer is out there and they team up to track him or her down. There’s action, comedy, romance, and some kind of supernatural force at work. It’s so Korean.

Lucifer Season 4 – May 8

Lucifer, the urban fantasy drama based on Neil Gaiman’s character from The Sandman comics, actually spent its first three seasons on FOX. As usually happens in genre television with small fandoms, the ratings didn’t quite meet standards and FOX canceled the struggling show. Enter Netflix, as it often does, to help those special genre shows finish telling their story. The show is about the Devil, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), who abandons hell to become a night club owner and consultant for the LAPD. The series fourth season will consist of 10 episodes. If you want to watch but don’t have time to catch up on the previous three seasons before the premiere, Netflix just released this delightful recap of pretty much everything you need to know. Just based on that, I’d totally watch it.
