Critics Consensus

A kaleidoscopic existential crisis, Undone bends the rules of space, time, and rotoscoping to weave a beautifully surreal tapestry that is at once fantastical and utterly relatable.

The most visually captivating show of this exhausting but exhilarating year.

The splendor of the visuals alone warrants a recommendation for the season...

Top Critic

A series worthy of deep examination, but which can be most accurately summed up in two words: Watch it.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Every level of Undone compliments another, which encourages belief that the ending of the series will be as strong as the start.

Top Critic

The uncanny-valley feel of the animation contributes to the affecting hyperreality of the series...

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Undone is one of the best shows of the year, an extraordinary union of style and substance. Kate Purdy is a major talent to watch.

Sep 13, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Lucky for us, the show was just renewed for a second season.

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a tough, honest show, one unafraid to cast its characters in an ugly light and wallow in their poor choices, practically daring you like them...and you do, because their baggage is so specific that it can't help but feel universal.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Gently amusing and occasionally moving.

Dec 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

At just 30-ish minutes a piece, the eight-episode season is a fast and satisfying binge-watch, one that rewards viewers time and again with not only gorgeous visuals but also some fascinating ideas.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Undone can be super woo-woo, but it uses its mix of live action and animation in superb ways that can really remind you of how dream logic works.

    Frankly: I don't know what this series does at number 2.
  • May 14, 2020
    100%? Sounds about right. It's brief, original, and mind-bending sci-fi rotoscope. Watch it. 9.25/10.
  • May 07, 2020
    Original and capitvating. I put this on and immediately thought... nah this isn't something I would watch. However with in the first couple of minutes I was hooked from beginning to end. I can't stress the originality (a rarity these days) within this show. I highly recommend

    I swear I was captivated by the visuals and time travel at first, but I stayed for the story and the heart. Raphael and Kate are both geniuses for gifting us with this masterpiece, as well as the classic Bojack Horseman. I am just genuinely floored by how beautiful this is that I don't even know where to start. Nothing but praise on my part.

    I love the animation. The story is fascinating as well.
  • Apr 21, 2020
    It is difficult for the rational viewer to endure the political correctness and victimology of the series and main character. Our heroine Alma, curses her miserable life as a child daycare aide and attributes her life failures to "systemic racism" when it is her convoluted emotions and possibly an inability to do long division that are her problems.

    I need to see the 2nd series, please!

    This is such a palate test from Raphael Bob-Waksberg. From my perspective, is there any work from the last five years forward that he can possibly craft crudely? In "Undone", he once again works with an incredible team which includes Hisko Hulsing, who is known for his work in the rotoscoping medium, and Rosa Salazar who plays the mestiza shaman-slash-schizophrenic protagonist. Although I'd say it's difficult to latch onto an audience with the art of rotoscope films, treading in between live-action and animation, the compelling premise, easily relatable characters, and the marrying of mundane scenarios with a kaleidoscope pieces of a mind coming "undone" redeemed the unpopular media (debatable). There's so many ways to keeping regular animation fresh; merely the rawness to it is enough to salvage it. While in rotoscoping, you get a few tries before it gets scrapped and attempted to revive again before it really makes it-makes it. I'll admit that I keep passing up on this from Prime and would have continued to do so had I not know this is a Bob-Waksberg project. Fans of his previous work will be reminded of the similar sense of diversity to world-building and the ability to turn familiar themes into something digestible without exploiting it. In "Undone", they focus less on anecdotes and more on the immersive experience as an audience. They don't try to be too deep, too convoluted, too detailed, too suspenseful, nor too eccentric to stand out. It all just falls together.
