When we heard about Undone, we weren’t really sure what to expect. All we knew that it was coming from the creators of BoJack Horseman. That meant one thing: it was going to feel real.

And that’s exactly what we get. This adult animation touches on grief, mental illness, and much more. Rosa Salazar’s lead character, Alma, is a flawed leading lady. It’s not often a show will even attempt to offer this, so having her take us through this journey is essential for the growth of television.

The reason this series is one to watch isn’t just for the story—although that is certainly important. It’s all about the way the series has been created. It’s filmed and then animation is drawn over the top. This adds a whole new level of realism to the series, making it feel like we’re watching the actors in real-time on the show.

However, the filming adds that surrealism that the show needs to succeed. It makes it possible to have two Almas in the room together and add the mystery of the time traveling abilities.

Not sure what to watch right now? Undone is a must.
