Storyline

On the same day in October 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his "children" to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves' passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father's death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse. Written by jesusblack-30225

Amusing, but predictable
16 February 2019 | by ericanaessSee all my reviews

Sometimes this show feels as though Wes Anderson made a superhero show, and that's the good part. The problem with the plot is that it's really obvious to figure out, so when they reveal the "twists" you're like, I knew that already. It's also quite disjointed.

Five and Klaus are probably the best, along with Hazel, in terms of characters and actors.

People seem to be exaggerating on both sides: it's not the worst thing ever, nor is it the best. It's amusing and has potential, but didn't quite get there.
