So is this on FX? Or Hulu? Or both? Don't have Hulu. Don't want Hulu. Been ages since I watched anything on FX. Not sure if we even get that anymore. I need a scorecard to try and keep up.

“Fx on Hulu” which in this case means it will be streaming only IIRC. If I am mistaken I’m sure someone will correct me.

How about the FX app, say via an ATV? Or does Hulu have to be involved in some way, shape or form?

Devs is an FX on Hulu exclusive. You have to sub to regular Hulu or Hulu + Live TV to watch.

We signed up for the Hulu free month to see S-2 (and hopefully 3) of 'The Handmaid's Tale'. It expires on 3/22, so I don't know if we're going to be able to fit 'Devs' in, especially if it doesn't drop all at once. C'est la vie.

Hah...and I love the Alex Garland slow burn...fully invested and ready to watch all 8 right now

Fantastically shot...really engaged on the mystery and wondering where this is going...Offerman is great

I'm guessing no 4K or HDR?

all the reviews I've read mention it being a very slow paced show...in a way I'm glad I'm not going to start this until after Episode 4...but ideally I think this is meant to be binged after all the episodes air...

"Alex Garland, who wrote and directed all eight episodes of the miniseries, takes an approach that’s restrained, deliberate, and more concerned with what the characters do and think than what they’re like...it moves very slowly, and its understated and extremely serious sensibility can make it feel even slower than it is...watching Devs can be an almost hypnotic experience...the problem with hypnosis is that it tends to make you sleepy, which is not, generally speaking, what a television show should be seeking to do"

I'm on the fence with this one, but every time I see a preview I am curious about one thing. What is that giant kid in the woods?

Hit episode One last night .. there appears to be 4 episodes on HULU although I did not look at any but #1 ..

I found it to carry a general ominous undertone, the Giant Kid statue is just plain weird, like some sort of God figure on the tech campus .. the premise of the show is interesting, although what it means has yet to be revealed in episode 1 ..

The kid they killed had obviously figured out the code and why he was filming it with his "James Bond" watch I have no idea .. however, AMAYA and it's leadership will, apparently, stop at nothing to keep the info a secret .. yet, why have people staring at the code .. ??

Murder and coverup with a big Tech Company involved .. ?? CGI suicide in order to cover it up .. ?? A giant, weird, Kid Statue overseeing all .. ?? A Sudoku puzzle locked on a smart phone .. ?? An oddball CEO that spouts his own God-Like lingo .. ??

Hell, yes, I'm in ..

I think you'd enjoy the show .. if you can try and squeeze Episode 1 in, that is likely enough to tell you one way or the other ..

Mrs. Archi & I discussed this last night. We may have to extend our Hulu sub into a paid month or two in order to see this one (only 8 eps is great!), the new season of 'Veronica Mars' (a must!), and to finish out the second season and the third of 'Handmaid's Tale'. The latter is so depressing we can't binge it and can really only take one of 'em at a time without slashing our wrists in despair.

Hell, yes, I'm in ..
Only 2 of those 4 are "view-able" ... I watched eps 1 & 2 last night, & tried to play 3 / 4 but if clicked on, they show air dates of the next 2 Thursdays, and cant yet be viewed ...
Not sure why another 2 are listed that way.

And now my hopes are dashed .. oh, well, I'll probably watch episode 2 tonight ..

This show is one and done, I think .. ??

on 4K .. HULU flagship originals, whatever that means, are supposed to have it now .. I don't think "Devs" qualifies, as it was 1080p on my PS4 Pro ..

Well, you could cheap out like me and take the $5.99 with commercials plan .. I bagged $1.99 a month for a year last November and .99 cents a month the year before that .. honestly, the commercial breaks are probably around a minute and a half max .. some shows only have a couple and some shows have none at all ..

Yeah, I was disappointed it wasn't 4K too. But I liked the first two episodes and subtext evoked. I've had Hulu ever since I became a "cordcutter" and went for "no ads" option when it became available. I was a bit disappointed in February offerings on Hulu but things seemed to have picked up in March. FX and FXX shows are now available "next day" on Hulu.

I got the Ads basic Hulu plan free, since my daughter got some sort of Spotify subscription, & Hulu came free with that ( & she may have gotten the spotify at some ridiculous deep discount for some reason I can't remember) .. ...
The ads are really not any problem, as mentioned, there aren't many, and when they come in, the break ranges from 20 sec to about a min and a half max ....

Very much true .. in some scenes, the colors seemed somewhat muted, intentionally so, I'm sure ..

It was also nice to see real San Francisco street scenes instead of Vancouver, BC standing in.

Amazon Video has the season for $13(HD) and as I don't have Hulu and don't intend to get Hulu I think I'll wait until all 8 episodes are available and watch it via Amazon.

That's good to know. No Hulu here. I await your thumbs up or down on whether this show is worth $13.

It's Alex Garland so it's already worth the dollars to me, I'm just waiting to see if it might become available as a Prime freebie. Plus, it will very likely be better quality than what Hulu will provide. My understanding is that it's a visually striking show so I'd prefer to see it the best way possible.

I doubt it'll be a part of Prime, at least not anytime soon...Amazon does that with Starz programming because they have some sort of agreement with them...I'm guessing you already used up your Hulu free trial?...outside of a subscription, that's currently the best way to watch this...I've been holding on to my Hulu free trial for awhile now waiting for the right time...and it's good that they give you 30 days- this way I can also watch both seasons of Castle Rock
