The Mid-Season Replacements Episode 16: “License to Devs”

On this week’s episode, Randy and Sean discuss the concluding hours of Alex Garland’s FX on Hulu miniseries, Devs, in what can only be described as a feast for the heart, and mind. On the menu? A delicious discussion about the many socioeconomic implications of Devs‘ core philosophic debate, a tasty pontification on its meta-narrative about creative control, and a delectable exploration of the binary constraints of stories about free will vs. determinism. Don’t sleep on dessert, either: their conversation concludes with an examination of what makes emotionally powerful sci-fi, and how traditional and modern series have taken fundamentally different approaches to that same goal. Bon appétit!

Shows discussed: Devs, Westworld, The OA, Black Mirror, Tales From the Loop
