Hi I don’t usually do tv shows but I watched the first half of The Umbrella Academy yesterday with my sister and I thought this would be a good opportunity to branch out. I haven’t finished the show yet so this is just my opinion so far.
One of the things that kinda irked me was how the show leaves you not knowing much especially in the first episode or two where you know practically nothing other than the plot, so it’s frustrating when things happen and you don’t fully understand it. But, even though I didn’t necessarily enjoy it actually drew me in more because I wanted to know more I wanted to understand what was happening and why. Maybe this switches around because I have only seen about half of the show I assume though at the end of the season there is gonna be a big reveal that makes sense of everything. Another thing that I enjoyed is that it seemed as there was almost no downtime, something was always happening and even when it would be something small I would still be on the edge of my seat because of the unpredictability of the show. Also the evil people that I know of so far (stay with me here i’ll do my best to explain without spoiling anything) sare 3 dimensional in that they have emotions and are aware of what they are doing and they aren’t bad just for the sake of being bad. I will definitely be finishing the show the next time I decide to watch because it is very bingeable I guess you could say (good for some of you and terrible for the other). Hopefully Netflix renews the show for another season because I really enjoy it and recommend everyone to watch the first episode or two maybe to see how they like it. My rating out of ten would probably be around and 8.75 I like it but isn’t like my new favourite show.
