Devs is a sci-fi detective story with a philosophical bent. And it balances those elements extremely well, even if it moves rather slowly.

I'm still not sure I know what the point of the Devs project is, but I loved watching Devs unfold.

Overall, this was a very promising first episode, and it bodes well for the rest of the series.

Amid the glut of prestige TV, it turns out that a smart, experimental sci-fi show that knows entertainment value and depth aren't mutually exclusive still feels like something special.

Somewhere in Devs, there are relevant lessons to be learned about the misuse of technology and the age-old conflict between predestiny and free will... But this series is so hard to... decode that any of its deeper meanings get lost.

[A] mostly well-plotted and delicately paced drip-feed of information.

[Alex Garland's] work offers a bracing jolt that then lingers like a haunting.

Some will surely watch "Devs" twice. That's my prediction of the series' future, and I feel confident making it.

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.

Devs is also downright gorgeous to look at, alternately vibrant and stark, earthy and modernistic, and jam-packed with striking imagery that sears right into your brain.

You need to study Devs - every frame might be giving you an answer. Or it might not. Part of the fun of this show is getting wrapped-up in its mind-blowing originality. For better or worse, Devs is a show that stands almost entirely on its own.

It's haunting and hypnotic, a show of marrow-seeping mood and a unity of vision that carries through every frame. If it also turns a corner from entrancingly opaque to a bit on-the-nose by the end... chances are that you'll be too absorbed to be bothered.
