'The Undoing' Episode Three: A Slower Episode with Hints of Spice

With a feel more like a soap opera episode or a TV sitcom, “Do No Harm” doesn’t seem to do a whole lot of anything. The audience gets to meet a few new characters and see a couple new places, but by and large, it’s nothing special.

In Hulu’s much-anticipated original series, the monsters aren’t just under the bed: They’re everywhere. Most critically, they are dormant in everyone, waiting patiently for the world’s madness to awaken them.

It’s not an incredibly existentialist, what’s-the-meaning-of-life show, and neither is it particularly realistic. And yet the show still has its charming moments, particularly when it doesn’t take itself seriously.


‘Saturday Night Live’ Season 46 Premiere Loses Its Edge
