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.

Critic Reviews for Undone Season 1

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (21)

It's a compelling journey of self-examination wrapped in a detective story.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 12, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Alma's Deafness is just a gimmick that she can use to ignore her friends and family and continue to telegraph the show's themes about perception without actually challenging viewers' perceptions at all.

Jul 21, 2020 | Full Review…

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

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Undone will leave you feeling lost in an unravelling mind, an unending twilight zone, as Alma struggles against the darker aspects of her own nature. But Salazar grounds the madness in a moving emotional reality.

Jul 23, 2020 | Full Review…

The vail becomes ever so lightly lifted from moments within the show only to show us that Alma becomes uncertain as to which reality is real.

Jul 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Undone is one of those surprising audiovisual products because of its formal aspect as well as its premise. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 18, 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.

Audience Reviews for Undone: Season 1

    I am unsure whether the depiction of the protagonist is accurate in terms of schizophrenia, but in all other aspects this tv show is phenomenal. By narrating most of the story from the protagonists view one cannot tell whether the reality they see is really reality or just a hallucination. The animation technique is quite unique as it is not used frequently. The act of converting fully acted out scenes into an animation is something people do not see frequently.

    After watching the very first episode I though to myself: "what an interesting idea, to make the protagonist of your TV show so utterly, utterly hateable, and all of its themes so deplorable". Seriously, I honestly considered dropping it, but I also thought: "well, one more episode will do me no harm, will it?". And this, as it turns put, was a right idea, as the show gets so much better after the terrible first episode. There is mystery, there is drama, there, finally, is the supernatural. Non of it particularly good, mind me, but they are there nonetheless. In the end I even managed to half-like Alma with all her strange ideas and behaviors, but the ending, while being quite conclusive, left for me a bit too much untouched. And I thought that it is as it should be, but then I heard the news about the second season and I thought to myself: "wait, what now?". And it is the place where I am right now. Oh, and the animation: its all well and good until you realize that it was made this was to create special effects without big budget, and this cheapens it all a bit.

    A great example of where this kind of style of animation works. The writing is top notch, you get interested in the main character.

    Buena ejecucion de la tecnologia de animacion. Muy buenas actuaciones. Vistas 1

    Visually striking and emotionally charged Undone is one of the most dreamlike trips that television has to offer.
  • Sep 06, 2020
    Rotoscope that timeline again!

    Nothing I can say could do his series justice. Just experience it for yourself.

    Is this nearly perfect? No, it IS perfect. Easily the best show Amazon Prime Video has produced and that is saying a lot since they also produced The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. This show is equal--but different--to that show. Bob Odenkirk is perfect as usual with all of the rest of the cast as well. I didn't think I'd like an animated show but the story, the writing, the scenes, etc. made me forget it was one. I don't think this show would be as effective live. I hope that in the light of the pandemic, more productions are done this way.

    I really disliked this. The uncanny, lazy animation is the least offensive part, the landscapes can be pleasant. The sci-fi aspects of the show are hollow, simply acting as a vehicle to provide background information, under the pretense that the father is trying to "figure it out" but with less logic than Back to the Future. Nothing gets figured out. Nothing has any resolution. Alma is a completely unlikable character, which would be fine if there was some arc to her overcoming or even just acknowledging any of the truly awful things she does throughout the series. The horrible thing she does at the wedding is just immediately rewound and undone via her superpower with absolutely no acknowledgement of what she just did. I care nothing about this character. The father does not seem to care about the sister at all, myopically focused on his task, and conveniently forgetting the most important aspect of his own past. The mother is only drawn as an antagonistic force, forcing the main character to take her medication. A Bustle article on the writer illuminates that this is actually an autobiographical piece, dramatizing the writer's struggle with an unspecified mental breakdown, and learning her grandmother had schizophrenia, even so far as seeing enlarged ventricles on her CT scan. The writer pushes ideas of "considering different perspectives" as something Western Medicine is unable to consider, and that the show is an illumination of that. The writer attributes overcoming her own mental health issues to a Shaman. I find it all offensively bad. It has no regard for its audience, just a purely autobiographical piece that only means something if you can identify with the worst main character in existence. Maybe some see her as "edgy" but to any mature adult (i'm only 30) it's a grating experience watching her interact with her family, the constant disregard she shows for the people around her is completely unprocessed. What was the point of any of that? They took the alluring concept of mental health and did absolutely nothing with it, even going so far as to obscure what it means to have delusional or psychotic thinking. Horrendous.

    It's a fantastic show in animation style plot characters and pace. I can't wait for season 2.
