The Undoing S01E06 completes the HBO mini-series based on the novel You Should Have Known. Unfortunately, the series finale only confirms what I had suspected from episode 4 onwards – that The Undoing is a poorly conceived, badly written TV series.
The Undoing S01E05 is entitled “Trial by Fury”, which suggests fire and brimstone occurs at the murder trial of Jonathan Fraser (Hugh Grant). That is false advertising sadly. In my review of S01E04, I had expressed hope that things would pick up from the somewhat pedestrian pacing that had plagued The Undoing thus far. No such luck!
After a bit of a teased twist at the end of episode 3, I was hoping that The Undoing S01E04 would bring us down an intriguing road. But alas, a tease was all it was, and it was unfulfilled. But still, The Undoing S01E04 is managing to keep my interest in the limited series so far. Why is that?
The Undoing is a six-part HBO psychological thriller drama mini-series based on the 2014 novel You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz. for the purpose of this review, I shall be splitting my comments into two parts. Episodes one to three will be covered in The Undoing – Part I. So whenever I refer to The Undoing – Part I, I am discussing the first three episodes.
