    It’s a hallucinogenic family dramedy that’s made to be seen and experienced, an ouroboros devouring its own tail—and enjoying every bite.

    “Undone” continues to approach the concept of trauma as an inherited trait with care and precision. On a technical level, the show is still an absolute marvel. ... Just when it felt like “Undone” could not top its first season, its second has it firing on all cylinders. It is a tragic but poignant story of how to live with past guilts, pains, and scars from generation to generation.

    What she discovers is the roots of another eight episodes that take the series’ premise and further makes good on its infinite promise. It’s a new path that transfers attention from a handful of characters from the first season in favor of zeroing in even more on the greater Winograd-Diaz tapestry, including Becca and Alma’s mother Camila (Constance Marie).

    Big ideas here. Profound at times. But they’re encased in an oddly buoyant and funny context that also manages to be substantial and emotionally resonant. Salazar and Odenkirk are in tonal concert within the trippy setting and concept, finding comedy and affection in the material and making it seem effortless. ... To not continue watching Undone would be foolhardy.

    The series has lost the air of uncertainty in favor of depicting lives whose problems are implausibly neat and solvable. It’s a journey for definite solutions that feels less like the messy, disorienting process of being alive than playing a video game while reading the strategy guide.

    Finally it's back! I had previously been anxious about the second season given how satisfying the ambiguity of the first season had been butFinally it's back! I had previously been anxious about the second season given how satisfying the ambiguity of the first season had been but they proved me wrong! This season is a heavy exploration of a topic seemingly surfacing in the entertainment industry, one that confronts the ramifications of generational trauma. Beginning on an unsure dare say confusing first few episodes it's less immediate than the first but once it finds it's groove the story shoots into overdrive delivering a complex tale of lies,death,denial and miscommunication. It is convoluted at times and the thrill of "wtf" is minimized into digest able coherent plot lines. The story reaches a heartwarming conclusion leaving a complete masterclass in story telling Full Review »
