Netflix Umbrella Academy is a much watch show


#1

You have got to watch this on Netflix. It’s like X-men/pulp fiction/Stange Things meets Guardians of the Galaxy. It has a lot WTF moments, followed by clarity with each episode. This is a much WATCH !!! Great SHOW.


#2

We watched 3 or 4 episodes last night.
Definitely intrigued.

I likened the group dynamics and focus on interpersonal relationships then building out to the action as akin to X-Men.


#3

agreed. I have watched 3 and I feel like i “need” to watch the rest…been a while since something hooked me like this did…since maybe altered carbon


#4

Pretty high bar there. I’ll have to add this to the list after I’m done with the latest (and now last :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:) season of The Punisher.


#5

Been binging this hard. It’s really good and an interesting twist on superheros.


#6

I’m not sure if i am just missing something with this show but something just doesn’t feel right. Maybe I need to completely finish it and then it comes together but at this point I feel like its a messed up version of like Rosanne lol


#7

Each time I wonder if I’m starting to tire of it they usually add a new twist that keeps me engaged a little longer.

Despite having enjoyed it, not sure how much legs it will have.


#8

Season finale is a hell of a cliffhanger !!!


#9

Fell asleep last night during the series premiere


#10

Lol


#11

Binged this real fast. I loved it. Looking forward towards next season. I also liked the beginning of the final episode. It’s a strange world.


#12

I’m not quite finished yet, but what a mindfuck. So many jaw dropping moments so far in this show, it’s been amazing!


#13

Got two episodes left. Was 1115 and I knew I’d be up til 2am if I were to keep watching…


#14

I wasn’t as responsible as you. I finished it off last night, didn’t get to bed until around 1 am.

Awesome show, and it will be interesting to see how the cliffhanger turns out.

(Note: haven’t read the comics)


#15

I didn’t know they were actual comics. I’ll have to check them out.


#16

It looks like there are 17 issues so far, and each storyline is 6 issues long. The one this season seems to be based off of was called “Apocalypse Suite”


#17

Just finished up the last episode on Netflix.
Good stuff.


#18

Funny thing I found out, Ellen Page (Vanya) was the little girl on Trailer Park Boys. Trailer Park Boys and Strange Brew taught me everything I need to know about Canada. They are documentaries, right @beers_and_leafs?


#19

Next up for me is Doom Patrol, but that’s for another forum post.


#20

Just finished the season and me rikey. It’s the perfect blend of odd and WTF. Lots of good and lots of questions to take on next season.
