In short, it is an awesome series that is completely worth watching.

It's unforgettable, it's powerful, it's relatable, it's intriguing, it's mind-bending, it's intelligent, it's shocking, it's uncomfortable, it's hilarious, it's heart-wrenching, it's beautiful, it's so much to experience on a conscious and subconscious level.

Cliche to the point of absurdity.

The music goes perfectly with the series and is as beautiful and breathtaking as experiencing what Alma experiences.

Anyway I really like the show and very enjoyable.

The other part of me just loves to celebrate non-linear, compelling storytelling.

The mother especially is a character sort one would avoid in real life, the sister is a walking penis fly trap some poor sucker will waste his life on and the girl of the story is a nut job having been raised by a fatherless family, and that's where the story goes.

Slow and really not as deep as it's trying to be.

I hope it gets addressed or there was a pointless goose chase.

But of course , the animation isn't the sole element lifting ''Undone'' , as it was quite beautifully coupled with an engaging story riddled with a multitude of themes; lived through flawed, realistic characters and one that leaves you aching for more .

I enjoyed it, was moved, and am looking forward to season 2.

I kept waiting for something truly exciting or touching to happen, but instead the show muddles along in a predictable fashion, with dull mundane interpersonal conflicts that make you dislike all of the characters who range from snarky and sarcastic, to cowardly liars, to manipulative, narcissistic, superficial stock characters.

Without spoiling too much, I will say that the story is not something that's going to universally resound with a wide audience like the Amazon hit show like The Boys ( even if you're sick of superheroes type movies, The Boys is compelling and well worth a first episode watch at the minimum just to hook you).

From the first episode I was enticed by the tight, witty dialogue, the unique visual style, and the appealing yet overused premise of "ordinary person bored with the routine of life has a Call to Adventure (tm) through supernatural powers".

It was good, dry humor, a little nerdy, great story, visually stunning, hit on real life challenges...

That's dull, not unique and not something to be used or sold as entertainment.

I enjoyed the series immensely and highly recommend it for it's amazing strengths bit the fawning reviews are just a bit too much.

Disappointingly uninteresting .

Started boring and ended boring.

So don't look for deep, mind-blowing truths in her lines - most of them are on the edge of observational comedy and definitely not a Earth-shattering revelations some tabloids saying they are.

Everything is neat in this except for the story itself, which is riddled with characters that are boring and irritating.

Stunning visually, unique and immersive story .

Compelling and mind-bending .

By the end the show's mysteries are wrapped up with the most boring conclusions, I would call it predictable except I would not have predicted they would write the ending to be so simplistic and prosaic.

So slow, and about nothing .

A story that couldn't be more touching, intriguing, complicated and fascinating had to be told in a different way of narrating and describing.

Each character is strongly written and the story is compelling.

boring story and ugly animations .

Confusion, mental illness, reality or delusion?

This ending made the whole thing just a waste of time.

Went nowhere .

Witty, real, genuine, intriguing.

Dont waste your time.

The key point first: the story and its characters are indeed quite boring and not very engaging.

Find your sweet spot - At first I wasn't sure where to look, then by the third episode I focused on the eyes and the animation took in a whole new dimension By that time the story line was enough; I was thoroughly immersed .

An entertaining and novel series, which imposes a new way of seeing and analyzing human relationships and mental illnesses.

I gave it a 7 because for seven shows I really wanted to know this young women's future, and deducted 5 because everything I watched over the previous 7 shows was pointless.

It's a mind-bending tale that manages to be funny, heartbreaking, and fascinating.

Totally unique and stunning.

Waste of time .

Cool concept, solid story, good acting, and totally enjoyable and fun to watch (too easy to binge).

I enjoyed it.

There's ambiguity that is never resolved at the end, and not the good kind, it's the lazy boring kind of ambiguity.

Flawed but compelling characters and exploration of temporal second chances .
