Pretentious and cliché
Imagine some angry hausfrauen of Manhattan docudrama set in (another flop) "What/if" scenery. Big names, yet pathetic dialogues and shallow characters. Stereotypical New York elite or rather a take on it ...accordingly to the creators' optics. Eyes Wide Shut version for Hallmark and PG12 plus criminal plot from Law & Order episode. Add to it Vivaldi music as a soundtrack and you will have a perfect tv commercial of some luxury chocolates or brandy from the early 1990s. Skip if you value your time. Bad is an understatement.

Promising opening episode of the Manhattan murder-mystery whodunnit
"The Undoing" (2020 release; 6 episodes of about 55 min. each) brings the story of Grace Fraser and her family. As Episode 1 opens, we see a boy running in the street towards a shop, and as he enters the shop, he makes a gruesome discovery. We then go to "Two Days Earlier", as Grace, a therapist, is getting ready for another work day. We are introduced to her husband Jonathan, himself a successful doctor, and their teenage son Henry, who attends an elite private school. Later that day, Grace joins a group of ladies who are preparing for a fundraiser for the school. One of them, Elena, has no concerns about breastfeeding her new baby tight then and there in front of the group... At this point we are 10 min, into Episode 1.

Couple of comments: this new TV mini-series is directed by Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning Susanne Bier. The story is based on the 2014 novel "You Should Have Known" by Jean Hanff Korelitz. It basically is a Manhattan-centric murder mystery, so one has to be very careful what to disclose so as not to spoil any of the whodunnit. The opening episode takes its time to let us get to know Grace Fraser, a woman who seemingly has it all: a successful career and a wonderful family. Yet it becomes clear that all isn't necessarily as it seems... Nicole Kidman, now 53, remains stunningly beautiful (and looks easily a good 10 years younger that her age), and is perfectly cast in this role. Hugh Grant, now 60, has long ago lost his youthful appearances and now is a seasoned veteran, showing wear and tear. Reardon School, where young Henry attends, is a fictional school. Bottom line: the opening episode is full of intrigue and this mini-series looks to deliver a lot more fireworks in the remaining 5 episodes.

"The Undoing" premiered on HBO this weekend, and Episode 1 is now available on HBO On Demand and other streaming services. New episodes air Sunday evenings at 9 PM Eastern. If you are in the mood for a highly stylish and good ol' fashioned Manhattan murder mystery, I'd readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.

*UPDATE 11/1/20* Just watched episode 2. Plenty of drama and, yes, plot twists. Nicole Kidman shines as she is in virtually every frame of this episode. I'm pretty sold on this now, and can't wait to see how it's all going to unfold in the next 4 episodes.

OK... I'M IN!!!
This really isn't what I would normally consider my type of show. I'm more into shoot-em-ups and superhero/action/adventure fare.
With that said, I began watching episode 1 of The Undoing out of sheer boredom. I couldn't find anything else interesting, I had time to kill, so I decided to just zone out for a bit and see what Nicole Kidman is up to, these days.
It started out just as I expected... rich people doing rich people things... then, something happened.
IT GOT INTERESTING!!
I don't know if it was the deftly placed soundtrack or the "What's her deal??" factor of the character, "Elena." Maybe it was all that and more. Whatever it was, I couldn't stop watching. I was not "zoned out." I was involving myself in the story and creating plot lines in my own imagination, during key parts of the episode. Was I close? Where is this going??
My only criticism would be in how it ended. It's a cliffhanger, for sure, but I felt that Kidman's character, Grace, seemed a little too suspicious, just a little too soon. There may be an explanation, like she's got good reason to be, that we discover in later episodes.
I'm going to give my recommendation, for what it's worth. No class warfare, here. Just a good, old fashioned, Whodunit.

An Escapist "Whodunit?" (WARNING - TINY SPOILER)
I understand the love it or hate it reviews. There is a segment of the population that I see being insulted and / or offended by the outward appearance of a more somber, moody and dimly lit version of Sex and the City (love SJP and crew too but acknowledge it isn't for everyone) but it is a solid piece of entertainment. I don't think anyone was trying to recreate the Upper West Side wheel. That isn't the point. It is a character study of exactly who it is supposed to spotlight. It's a study of family dynamics, especially marriage (I haven't visited my husbands work in over 10 years and this made me question if I should be checking in more often) and it's a murder mystery. I think we are supposed to envy these people, their beauty, their clothes, their homes, their way of life. We get sucked in thinking "if only" or "how wonderful would that be?"....I admit it, I did. I was totally envying everything from the clothes and jewelry to the main character's townhouse kitchen. Then WHAM, a kind of tense and miserable undercurrent of madness, mystery and a paternity case. In episode two it is like the filmy veil of mood lit perfection gets pulled back and it is still beautiful but the beauty is cold, harsh and much less envious. And Nicole Kidman, who is an iconic beauty, (please stop the negative personal comments...she's lovely, and also a human being) brings an intelligence and intensity to this role and Matilda de Angelis is broken and breathtaking. I'm only through Episode 2 but throughly enjoyed curling up with some popcorn and watching the first two episodes back to back.

This should NOT be missed
The pilot episode was just so engaging. Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant make an interesting pair in this. The suspense is crazy.
