Mike wanted to talk business, but Lauren’s focus was on the stress-inducing finale of The Undoing

“I said, ‘No, you’re not invested. I’ve been invested the whole time, I’ve been invested the last 30 minutes — you need to not talk for the remainder of the show,'” she recalled telling her husband. 

Mike agreed The Undoing was a “good show,” calling it one of his wife’s favorites.

Lauren Sorrentino says ‘The Undoing’ is ‘film quality’ television

As a fan of the series, “Laurens” celebrated the work that went into creating The Undoing

“[The Undoing] was great,” she said. “I missed shows like that. A lot of work went into that show. [The] writing, creativity, the acting ability, the level of professionalism behind the scenes [and] in front of the scenes, writing it, producing it — it’s just incredible.” 

The Sorrentino’s were especially excited about The Undoing what with being stuck inside. They have been following the stay-at-home orders imposed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic like so many of us.

“I felt very privileged to watch a show that good from the comfort of our bed every week,” Lauren added. “[The Undoing is] almost film quality — like really epically great films, but every week from your bed.”
