Devs ★★★★

Alex Garland’s “Limited Series” is a heady sci-fi brew of multi-dimensions, predetermined existence vs. free will (with plenty of religious allusion) and international conspiracy plotting all wrapped up in a dreamy and deliberately-paced aesthetic.

The series slams out of the gate with some gripping murder-plot intrigue, quickly developing into something more dense and existential, leading to a pretty satisfying conclusion.

It is bolstered by some terrific performances from most of the cast including Nick Offerman, Zach Grenier and Alison Pill, but falters slightly with a patchy performance from the series lead Sonoya Mizuno, who often irks with questionable line-delivery and undercooked pathos.

Queue it up and get immersed!
