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.

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.

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.
September 16, 2019
Even as it shows off its meticulously constructed worlds, Undone hints at uncharted territories, leaving it up to Alma and the viewer to decide whether or not they want to venture into them.

The series is both beautiful and inventive, even if it uses the mental health of its protagonist as a story hook.

September 13, 2019
I'm still a little unsure about the way the series desperately wants to equate mental illness and otherworldly powers, but in its early episodes, Undone is a frequently beautiful and thought-provoking ride.

Undone is one of the best shows we've seen all year; between the amazing animation and strong performances, this looks to be a binge we might do more than once.

Rosa Salazar does much more than provide a voice; her acting shines through the enhancements of the drawing.
September 13, 2019
Amid the oil-painting-style backdrops and scenes floating through space, "Undone" is a deeply personal story about a woman dealing with the limits of her own memory, and explores how stories about ourselves shape who we become.

As a portrait of an emotional breakdown so severe it causes reality itself to fracture it's both disorientating and riveting.

Undone's unusual sense of flow makes you want to go with it, even when - maybe especially because - it's never clear where or when it's going to jump next.
