Trivia

The blurb on the back of Vanya's book ("Extra Ordinary: My Life as Number Seven") reads: Vanya Hargreeves is well known for her virtuosic skills as a violinist. Less understood is the role she played as one of Reginald Hargreeves' adopted children, standing alongside--but never counted among--the famous Umbrella Academy super kids. This is her story, in her own words. "An incredible read . . . a revealing portal into the amazing life of Vanya Hargreaves and the life she has lived. I couldn't put it down!" - Gerard Way The inscription inside reads: Dad, I figured, why not? V. See more »

This was unusual only in the fact that none of these women had been pregnant when the day first began. Sir Reginald Hargreeves, eccentric billionaire and adventurer, resolved to locate and adopt as many of the children as possible.

Good music
19 June 2019 | by noalyghSee all my reviews

The Umbrella Academy kicks off with an exhilarating montage, introducing the main characters. This is the perfect combination between meticulously picked music and scenes showing intriguing lives of the siblings, coming together at the Umbrella Academy to start the pilot. This is followed by an interesting first half with great conversations, making us wonder about the uncanny relationships between the siblings, with good chemistry and performance by the actors (except for Ellen Paige and Tom Hopper). But it only goes down from there. The last 30 minutes of the episode is just people fighting and dancing to music for no reason, with no story to it. Right to the end and I still have no idea what this series is about until the very last scene. The genre "adventure" for this show is a bit misleading since it lacks of any plot at all but only focus on music and fights. Now I realized it's just a dumb musical-superhero show with no substance at all.
