Netflix Umbrella Academy is a much watch show


#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.


#21

If you say so.


#22

little late to the party but been binging this and another thumbs up added for this show. Really unconventional “super hero” show.


#23

#24

Good deal. I’m all about more Umbrella Academy.


#25

Only about 3/4 through but also liking this one a lot. Keeps a good comic book kinda feel while being live action without a ton of effects. Still scratching my head about this coming from the mind of Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance fame.

And, Mr. Pogo needs to ditch that crazy ass family and come work for me. He’s cool


#27

It would be nice to get a little back ground story on Pogo.


#28

This is a bit of a tangent… anyone else noticed how many shows are set in a time before (or without) cell phones? So much of the plot, timelines, issues around these shows would be blown up by cell phones, web cams, etc.

I’m about halfway through the season.


#29

Yea, quite a few shows are creating an alternate time when it’s now or futuristic but no cells…and I think you are right on the reasoning
