If you are a fan of superhero flicks, you must make time to watch Netflix’s latest series called The Umbrella Academy. The Umbrella Academy is based on an American comic book series created and written by Gerard Way
Just like the comics, season 1 is focused on saving the world from a Apocalyptic event and these superheros which were orphans taken in by Reginal Hargreeves since they were infants nurtured their talents to bring out the potential in them.
I’ve never read the comic book so I won’t be able to compare the plots however after watching a bit of episode 1 , i was hooked till the end of the season. There are only 10 episodes in season 1 so , good enough to fill your entire weekend.
The entire season is filled with really cool soundtracks and if you remember the 90s … you would just love it all.
Rotten Tomatoes gave its a good score of 7.23/10 and here are some of the reviews from critics
By the end of the season, you would be looking forward for Season 2. Not to give out any spoilers, it finished off season 1 very well opening it up nicely for season 2.
So if you do have time this coming weekend, I do suggest you give it a watch and see if you like it. Cheers and have a great week !
