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

The uncanny-valley feel of the animation contributes to the affecting hyperreality of the series...
December 17, 2019
The most visually captivating show of this exhausting but exhilarating year.

Lucky for us, the show was just renewed for a second season.
December 12, 2019
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.
December 12, 2019
Gently amusing and occasionally moving.

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.

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

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.

The splendor of the visuals alone warrants a recommendation for the season...
September 23, 2019
Like BoJack, Undone can be both tender and mordant, and nearly all of its characters' lives operate on flawed contradictions.
September 19, 2019
Between its artistic merit, strong lead performance, and powerful themes, Undone accomplishes so much in such a short amount of time. Undone is unquestionably one of the best TV series of 2019.
September 19, 2019
Undone embraces a form of speculative storytelling that's closer to mythology. Its rotoscoped world might be merely a fun-house mirror of reality, but if you're brave enough to gaze into it, a mind-expanding adventure awaits.
September 16, 2019
If it sounds pretentious, or confusing, or simply too out-there, Undone might really surprise you; you can probably decide after a commitment of two episodes whether you're along for the ride or not.
September 16, 2019
Maybe the show will end right here, reminding both Alma and the audience that no matter how deep you go, you'll never have all the answers. Either way: Undone has been quite a ride.

Hisko Hulsing, who directed Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, manages to smoothly marry structure and visual disorder with effortless fluidity while also making the most of the story's potential in exploring sound.
September 16, 2019
The mind-bending animated sequences are stunning, but the show's biggest payoffs come from quiet moments between Alma and the people she's closest to. Sometimes the magic is hidden in the mundane.
September 16, 2019
It's a marvelous achievement in design and among the most visually stunning things you'll see on television this year. But when you look past the gorgeous presentation and into the substance, Undone proves more hit-or-miss.
