I don’t watch a whole lot of television stuff not because I think it’s bad, though most is pretty bad, but the good stuff I can’t seem to keep up with. The last really good thing I finished was “The Wire” which was obviously a while ago. I got through about two seasons of “Community” which was fun but I got busy and never got back to it.
This week “Undone” started on Amazon Prime and I really like it a lot so far. The good thing about not seeing a lot of series is that I don’t know who the actors are and in Undone I love Rosa Salazar, who I’d never heard of. That she’s animated in the show makes no difference and in fact let’s her character come through even more. It’s real easy to fall for a character when you know them only as…well, the character.
It’s an interesting thing and an enjoyable surprise when you come upon talent in this way; unbiased and accepting. Salazar gives Alma just the right amount of cynicism which fits nicely with the crazy events that happen to her.
Good stuff. I hope it stays fresh for a while.
