I think enough of us are watching this to have it's own thread. Only two episodes in but it seems like it's gonna get pretty deep. I really like Offerman in this role.

Hard to explain/tell, but here's a good trailer:

I will say, the Kenton character is a little over the top.

Yeah, he kinda felt like he dropped in from another show. Weakest part of the show for me.

What really makes this show excellent for me is how they handle the tone of how deeply personal the implications are for what they are doing in devs. There's just a mood in the show the projects that feeling really well.

Jesus that scene with Linden on the dam was something

The ending was mehhhhh. Such a great show otherwise. Not sure how else they could have done the ending though without it being a cliche happy ending, so I guess that complaint is minor. The only other complaint was that they seemed to only touch on the whole "multiverse" idea as a convenience. Like, it's out there and they wanted to include it more but didn't really know how or just didn't want to get into it.

Anyway, great show. The cinematography was great, Offerman was great, Lily was fucking fantastic. The only two that I didn't really care for were the girl from Picard and Kenton.

Seriously, I've been thinking about that Linden scene all day. That was a real mindfuck for me

I think your "other complaint" is a huge intentional part of the show. Like it's maybe the literal point.

eh, I thought it was more about the human struggle to grasp the "everything is pre-determined" idea. The multiverse stuff seemed like an easy way to explain

Spoiler: show
why Lily didn't do what they thought she was going to do.

a few thoughts:

i really loved the design of the devs mainframe, or whatever you want to call it. ark of the covenant vibes.

did the devs bunker have toilets?

why was it so important to have a floating elevator? a vacuum sealed catwalk would have been safer and cheaper. they could have put that cost savings into toilets.

Yeah remember in the beginning when the Russian kid was about to do what he was there to do, he got sick and ran to the bathroom to throw up

Except the show tells us that everything is not pre-determined. Forest is wrong. It's not a convenient way to explain away a "twist" ending. It's what the entire show is about.

I feel like a TV show created by Dev would be better than this.
