Powerful Story-Great Performances-Engrossing-Not to be Missed.

Take away the rotoscope: Boring.

Exciting and looking forward to season 2 .

(e) episode 2 onward, very entertaining, engrossing and satisfying.

Dont waste your time.

Undone is probably the best animation I have watched, the intrigues and mysteries always keep you on the edge of your seat, when you feel like you understand a scenario in the series it will later become even more confusing, and I mean confusing in a good way.

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

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

I'm a huge SciFi/Fantasy fan but beyond being a vehicle to show off Rotoscope animation, I wasn't drawn into the premise, at all, in fact, I was bored, and eventually felt jilted.

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

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.

Stunning visually, unique and immersive story .

Compelling and mind-bending .

Immensely enjoyable and satisfying.

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

Each character is strongly written and the story is compelling.

From the first episode that was intriguing enough to make me watch the entire series, until the final 5 minutes of season 1, not really much happened.

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

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

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

Thoroughly enjoyable and original .

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 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.

boring story and ugly animations .

But, it remained compelling enough to finish and is definitely interesting.

I enjoyed it.

Totally unique and stunning.

Cliche to the point of absurdity.

It's genre bending, mind blowing and technically astounding.

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 .

Flawed but compelling characters and exploration of temporal second chances .

Enjoyed it from beginning to the end.

Intriguing and profound .

The line between reality and dream/mental plan is so thin that sometimes can be confusing for the viewer to understand what is actually happening.

So slow, and about nothing .

I like Undone as it has been cast very well, the acting is excellent, the writing (great dialogue) and story are engaging and I enjoy the elements of folklore and science fiction.

Disappointingly uninteresting .

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

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

Worth the watch.

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.

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

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.

Now to the pros:(a) stunning script and storyline, explores multiple themes such as traditions, mental health, spirituality, science, time travel, philosophical and life dilemmas with elan.

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

All are very finely woven together to make a compelling show.

Anyway I really like the show and very enjoyable.

Confusion, mental illness, reality or delusion?

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.

Fascinating story + rotoscope technology make for great entertainment!

The acting was great, the characters deep, and the story was engaging.

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

Witty, real, genuine, intriguing.

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

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 .

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

Started boring and ended boring.

But as a narrative it was certainly compelling enough, and it at least explored the surface of the whole space-time metaphysical mind-****ery, which is almost enough for me.

Complete waste of time, would have been 7 or 8 out of 10 if the writers had been able to write something resembling an actual ending.

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).

Captivating, intriguing, and sincerely human.

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

Went nowhere .

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

Waste of time .

It is an entertaining and somewhat thoughtful story.

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".
