"Undone" is as arresting, devastating, and dizzying a show as you might expect from the BoJack Horseman team. (Also: Rosa Salazar r u l e s.) My review! https://t.co/Iw8eYHXeNh— Caroline Darya Framke (@carolineframke) September 11, 2019
COMMENTARY—The Bold Mix Of Animation Techniques In Amazon’s ‘Undone’ Is A Wake-Up Call For The TV Industry: In the tv animation industry, production techniques are reduced to a binary decision of 2d or cgi.

my reaction can best be summed up thusly:
the subtle developments--especially between sam and alma--caught me off guard and i love how essential heritage and lineage are to the plot and the identity of the characters. anyone else watch this pretty incredible show?
