News & Interviews for Devs: Season 1
Garland uses his time wisely, and his beautiful vision of a ghastly future is undeniably insightful. Some of its ideas may not be welcome - they sure as shit aren't comforting - but "Devs" sticks with you, whether you want it to or not.
The show is what it wants to be, but what it wants to be put me in mind of the big whiffs of the immediate post-Sopranos era, a hefty, pretentious, high-profile exercise in trying to make you Google de Broglie-Bohm theory.
"Devs" is a cerebral pleasure that gets very philosophical and presses its brainy atmosphere with lots of ponderous soundtrack music and deadpan acting.
A daring and new deconstruction of one of the basic tenets of human existence.
The mysteries of Devs don't unspool so much as eke out in a torturously slow drip. And the show's aesthetic details feel so detached from the story that they're often insufferable.
The problem, from a pure storytelling point of view, is that the show's tone, characters and narrative momentum have all surrendered to that same detached, emotionally isolated form of disaffection.
Foster's scientific and philosophical theories keep us blued to the screen and entertained; Devs' futuristic and mysterious aesthetic keeps us hooked. [Full review in Spanish]
With Ex-Machina and Annihilation, it will surely be one of the most memorable streaks in recent history, establishing Garland -- once and for all -- as one of the foremost voices in modern sci-fi
Devs gives a grace and dignity to the apocalypse that you won't find in our own world.
It's as complex as an Alex Garland creation. But Devs once again proves that the mastermind behind tech thrillers is just beginning with his roster. [Full review in Spanish].
Devs is a remarkable study on loss and grief that illustrates how emotional attachment and technological advancements can cause dangerous implications when in the hands of the wrong person.
Audience Reviews for Devs: Season 1
Mar 01, 2021Mind blowing, brilliant, mesmerising. Gripped from start to finish.
Feb 25, 2021The premise of this series is both great and terrible. The writing and acting are terrific, especially Nick Offerman. The pace and the layers that are revealed and intertwined as the story unfolds are satisfying and brilliant. This is the scifi series I recommend above all others from 2020 for sci-fi fans. There are religious references and undertones that will bring you to questions whether you are a person of faith or not. And questioning is good. It's how we learn and grow. I recommend watching the series twice. It's even better the second time.
Feb 03, 2021The religious part of it really kills it for me. It had such potential.
Jan 31, 2021The top-5 things I've seen in 2020 besides the last 15 minutes but We can't forget what happened before! And is the only reason is missing the last half-star to my rating! Everything perfect: acting, cinematography, directing... You name it! Maybe only sometimes the pace of it could have some boost here or there but couldn't work after all. Was really difficult to not to see all in a row but for sure I would like so much if I've done that. We have to sleep over each episode to love it even more. Everything is scary at the some time and let us think about "everything" on each episode! The question is: this is not so far to be made right?
Jan 29, 2021Slow, predictable, this close to being good because of the ending, which, though somewhat satisfying, is still predictable and this close to being good.
Jan 17, 2021Alex Garland did it again: he took his singular vision of restrained, cerebral sci-fi and crafted another story full of questions about the human nature, but this time in a episodic format, and it's almost as effective as the last decade's sophisticated gems 'Ex Machina' and 'Annihilation'. Anchored by a stellar duo comprised of Sonoya Mizuno and Nick Offerman, both of which completely transform into their flawed, realistic characters, the series follows the titular Devs, a top secret, elite department of a futuristic tech behemoth company and their world-changing enigmatic work involving quantum computing. 'Devs' unique, breathtaking aesthetic couldn't have been worked as powerfully as it did had it not been created only by one special mind. The script is more than clever, controlled and ultimately, surprinsingly well equipped in the emotional sense. However, Garland's code in 'Devs' has one irritating bug: it's deliberately pretentious. It sometimes seems like the script actively rejoices when you're forced to look a complex physics concept online in order to understand the plot. If recent science-heavy TV thought us something, it's that you don't need incomprehensive, PhD level concepts in order to transmit your message to the average viewer. The series' structure itself, although a little dragged out for the sake of character development, is solid and really well thought out, especially the near-perfect third act but, at the end of the day, 'Devs' true strength lies in its fascinating characters, layered, relatable and perpetually full of surprises.
Jan 15, 2021Finally an intelligent script for a SciFi-Show. The ending could have been better.
Jan 12, 2021Really great miniseries! Just wish there was another season..😩
Jan 08, 2021Utter pretentious nonsense that just gets more indulgent as the season progresses.
Jan 05, 2021One of the best series Ive ever seen. What a masterpiece. On par with Westworld.
