"Devs (ALEX MF'ING GARLAND, FX/Hulu)"


  

          

I know there's a ton of good TV on these days but kinda shocked there wasn't a post. Halfway through the season (is this a one-off?), this is really fucking excellent. Nick Offerman is absolutely knocking it out of the park by playing against type, and great work from the entire cast. Dope score too, apparently Geoff Barrow from Portishead is involved.

He*'s the Greenwood to Garland's Anderson. I love them together.


*I love his meet cute with Ben Salisbury that led to him following Trent Reznor's footsteps.

"How long have you known each other?
Salisbury: Funny enough, it’s through football, which we are about to play. We started playing football 15 years ago. Neither of us knew what each other did. I didn’t know Geoff was Geoff from Portishead.

Barrow: And I didn’t know Ben did TV music. We usually analyzed how bad we were at football in the bar afterwards and never really got onto music. It was the Spanish Inquisition on a weekly basis. It’s a way for everyone to leave their lives, families, work at home. A lot of people play sports to network, but for us it was the opposite.

Salisbury: After about five or six years of playing weekly football, I realized who Geoff was and had a question about clearing samples. And then we were talking about music. I did some string arrangements for bands on Geoff’s label, Invada, and he was doing music for Exit Through the Gift Shop, and we had a vague idea to work together on that, but it didn’t materialize. I was stuck doing music for natural history films and you only get to write one type of music for them. I was being suffocated. And Geoff was looking for a way to write for feature films. We both saw teaming up as a way to break out of our respective slots."

i'm really REALLY into this show. Its hard to describe, but its got 'something special' goin on. its unnerving...in a good way. FX has got a streak going on this kinda 'specialness' in several of their shows. Im guessing it has something to do with letting the creators create? I dont know what it is, but count me in.

And just on a the straight up 'tangible' parts of it....the acting, the characters, the cinematography, the music...all just right on point...

dont sleep on this one...
