Critic Reviews for Devs: Season 1

All Critics (89) | Top Critics (36)

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.

March 4, 2020 | Full Review…

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.
