At the time of writing this, I'm surprised to see a handful of poor reviews and can't help but wonder if we watched the same thing? I think Devs is quickly becoming my favorite series and it has only just begun.
Alex Garland's writing and direction are on point. The cinematography was amazing, every frame a painting. Casting is on point and the actors are believable in their roles. Loving Nick Offerman's range as we see him in a more dramatic role.
Overall it's the perfect amount of SciFi, Mystery and Philosophy for me. I don't feel any drag if exposition as I'm still very curious to learn more about this world. My only complaint is the Hulu format of making us wait a week for each episode - but hey, I'll take it.
