Devils: Season 1 / Reviews

Wall Street Journal

Wall Street Journal

“Devils,” full of interpersonal intrigues, betrayals and sexual sparking, weaves actual economic events into its plotline, and features a subplot about the shadowy Daniel Duval (Lars Mikkelsen) running the WikiLeaks-like Subterranea, which seems poised to blow the lid off NYL. All of which makes for a bracing story, even if it takes a few turns that leave a viewer struggling to keep up.
