Bojack asks the question, "So, you are successful: where do you go from there?" The answer is "dark places" because ultimately we create our own hell. Undone asks the same question with the twist of "but what if you are a total failure." There are ways to ask that question but treating "struggling poverty" as a counterpoint to "unbelievable wealth" is, well, as tone dead as the main character is deaf. I get how there is a theoretical poor audience for Undone but do they watch Amazon Prime?


It seems extremely off-brand.

Do you know any university profs? They make, like 60-90K/yr until the end of their career where they get maybe $150K-or-so unless they are at a major research institution. That's already poverty wages without factoring the life of a single mother with no career to speak of. If it's all downhill from "college professor" that family is poor as shiiiit.

She works at a daycare I assure you she is making poor people wages.

And her boyfriend is a waiter at a crappy restaurant that makes him wear a uniform.
