Devs

Critics Consensus

A hauntingly beautiful meditation on humanity, Devs' slow unfurling may test some viewers patience, but fans of Alex Garland's singular talents will find much to chew on.

Audience Reviews for Devs: Season 1

  • Apr 26, 2022
    It's beautifully filmed, and with only a couple of exceptions the acting is quite good. Unfortunately, it's let down by its plodding pace and pretentiousness. I think there could have been a fantastic series here, but it needed another pass or two in the editing room (with a significantly shortened runtime.)
  • Mar 04, 2022
    Not completely original, sometimes boring, but a well made limited series nonetheless
  • Nov 16, 2021
    Devs is fantastic. I could not stop watching. Really great acting, most of the dialogue, and the concept is amazing.

    It's good, clever, beautifully made. Loved the characters, they seem to represent their generation well. But at the end of it all— Bulgakov already predicted it, almost a century ago. "Ah, I understand ..." the master said, glancing around, "you've killed us, we're dead. Oh, how intelligent that is! And how timely! Now I understand everything." "Oh, for pity's sake," replied Azazello, "is it you I hear talking? Your friend calls you a master, you can think, so how can you be dead? Is it necessary, in order to consider yourself alive, to sit in a basement and dress yourself in a shirt and hospital drawers? It's ridiculous! ..." "Listen to the stillness," Margarita said to the master, and the sand rustled under her bare feet, "listen and enjoy what you were not given in life – peace. Look, there ahead is your eternal home, which you have been given as a reward. I can already see the Venetian window and the twisting vine, it climbs right up to the roof. Here is your home, your eternal home. I know that in the evenings you will be visited by those you love, those who interest you and who will never trouble you. They will play for you, they will sing for you, you will see what light is in the room when the candles are burning. You will fall asleep, having put on your greasy and eternal nightcap, you will fall asleep with a smile on your lips. Sleep will strengthen you, you will reason wisely. And you will no longer be able to drive me away. I will watch over your sleep." Thus spoke Margarita, walking with the master to their eternal home, and it seemed to the master that Margarita's words flowed in the same way as the stream they had left behind flowed and whispered, and the master's memory, the master's anxious, needled memory began to fade. Someone was setting the master free, as he himself had just set free the hero he had created. This hero had gone into the abyss, gone irrevocably, the son of the astrologer-king, forgiven on the eve of Sunday, the cruel fifth procurator of Judea, the equestrian Pontius Pilat" Michail Bulgakov, Master and Margarita.

    Wow! This was like Ex Machina on steroids. Excellent!
  • Jun 06, 2021
    It is slow but I did enjoy the themes through it and did not see the end result coming.
  • May 31, 2021
    A beautiful story. Alex Garland writes another cutting edge tale.
  • May 25, 2021
    It could have potential, really, but doesn't even make it to "it has a potential". The script, the dialogues, the acting... I can't believe I've made it through the end, really. It's one of those things that you get hooked on just to see how worse it can get. There were so many times I've hit my head, losing that many brain cells in order to help me like it, but it didn't. It's neither "philosophical" nor an "inquiry into the human nature", as the creator's fans profess, but a fucking joke. My advice, if you are going after its "philosophical" image, is - go read something.
  • Apr 16, 2021
    Mind blowing show. I absolutely loved this one. The lead actress is really boring and I honestly couldn't care less about her. But, the theme of the show, the supporting actors, the plot, the philosophy, and everything else is so good it makes for an incredible must watch show.
  • Mar 26, 2021
    As a computer science major and former nuclear submarine officer who's been in more than a few software startups, it'd be difficult to come up with a topic of greater interest to me than quantum computing and its potential. You can see from my rating that I plainly loved the show -- and like others I do recommend seeing it more than once. That said, it's important for everyone to remember that this is science_fiction...not science_fact. It's supposed to have imaginings that go beyond anyone's belief system. The history of any new development in science is that it all too often does just that -- "unbelievable" facts that blow people's minds in every new era. So while I'd put the "Sim" aspects of this exceptionally good sci-fi solidly in the non-believable fiction category, this is a masterpiece on the overall scale of science...fiction.
