[Netflix] The Umbrella Academy

Recommended Posts

imdb - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1312171/

More like brooding dysfunctional family academy. This is my current casual show. I'm 3 episodes in. It's much slower paced than the trailer makes it seem like. A lot of time is spent on dialogue that is rarely funny or interesting. Oh! All of a sudden some action with some popular pop hit to back it up. It's not terrible but it's a strong meh from me right now. I will keep watching but I have a feeling it will not get much better.

I feel like its dysfunction magnified but I found it interesting based on my wifes enthusiasm. I suggest watching to the end but there are definitely lots of hints of modern social justice going on in this show.

I am almost done with it. It has gotten a little better but that's because lots of stuff is happening now so there are less opportunities for everyone to stand around and complain/whine about their shitty childhoods.

Finished it. My feelings have not really changed. The ending felt kind of weak but I think they clearly setting up for another season.

I may have missed them but I'm curious what you are referring to here. Do you have some examples?
