A computer engineer investigates the secretive quantum computing development division in her company, which she believes was behind the disappearance of her boyfriend.

By filmmaker Alex Garland, who has made a name for himself over the past few years with films such as Ex Machina and Annihilation.

I haven't even watched half of 1x1 and must say... wow! Even better than I expected. So far it's like... hmm... Mr. Robot minus the hacking and mental issues, plus Silicon Valley minus the funny bits, plus a good dose of mystery, plus something else I can't really put my finger on. Great design work!

And the show contains my absolute favorite movie or TV show dialogue of 2020:

+ show spoiler

New guy: How many qubits is it running?

Boss: A number... that seems pointless to express as a number.

Currently 8.1/10 at IMDb.

Hmm, sounds like it's right up my alley. I will definitely check this out. big_smile

Found this show to be extremely boring and pointless... Got halfway through episode 1 and just drifted off doing something completely different; my laundry.

Re: Devs [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi]

I like this, but good God, the Chinese female lead's acting is appalling.  What's with all the over-the-top hysterical breathing?  I know she's under pressure, stressed etc., but come on.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

I just finished 1x2, you're talking about that phone scene, right? IMHO that was totally realistic. I've been in a very stressful situation myself (close call), and while I didn't pay attention to my breathing while it was happening, I did notice half a minute (or so) later that my pulse rate had about doubled... and probably I was breathing somewhat like her. smile

The phone scene, and then it's a whole lot worse in ep3 in another scene.

I've been in alot of stressful situations (who the hell hasn't?) and I don't sound like her!  I just don't rate her as an actress.  I like the show though so I will stick with it.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

The hacking and mental issues were my favourite part of Mr.Robot, and the funny bits in Silicon Valley are why I watched it.
But i'll give this a go as I love Offerman.

Just watched 1x3. You can't really criticize it this time though because...

...it was done intentionally (to sell the story)! Well played. smile
