[Content warning for physical violence/torture] A tech entrepreneur is fueled by an obsession driving a secret posse of programmers to change our understanding of reality and free will itself. Devs frames itself as a technological dystopia waiting to happen, as delving into the potential of quantum computing. Really it's a human drama: the characters are driven by loss and love. The aesthetic is drawn from tech startups: all open office spaces and minimalist designs and young clever people and old men placing themselves in charge. Devs is dark and atmospheric and occasionally brutal, worth watching for Nick Offerman's performance as troubled boss Forest.

Good show, but I feel like it would have been tighter and better as a movie.
