The limited drama series is a gripping, character-driven thriller based on the 2012 New York Times best selling novel of the same name by William Landay. An assistant DA's world is shattered when his beloved son gets charged with murder.
A cocaine shipment makes its way to Europe, starting from the moment a powerful cartel of Italian criminals decides to buy it, to its journeys through Mexico, to its shipment across the Atlantic Ocean.
Giuseppe De Domenico,
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.
