Loving Right Now: The Umbrella Academy

16 Apr

You guys know by now that I love my comic book movies. I ate up Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, etc on Netflix. OF COURSE I love the Marvel franchise and can’t wait for Avengers: End Game. But to hold me over, I’ve fallen in love with a new series on Netflix, The Umbrella Academy.

{Pssst, my Loving Right Now posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything. They are just stuff that I’m totally digging now and thought you would like too. You can check out my previous posts here}

Short and sweet synopsis: The Umbrella Academy is the story of a super-dysfunctional family of superheroes who have eight days to get it together and save the world.

Going into it, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But by the end of the first episode I was hooked. I plowed through all 10 episodes pretty quickly. They just announced that it was renewed for Season Two, so I’m super excited to continue the adventures with the Hargreeves family.

My current favorite characters are Five and Klaus, with a special place in my heart for Cha-Cha and Hazel. I actually started re-watching the entire series, just so I can enjoy it again and savor it a little more this time!

Is The Umbrella Academy on your watch list? If you did watch it already, which is your favorite Hargreeves?

    Thanks for sharing this! I think my middle school aged son would really enjoy this based on his love of comic books and all Marvel and DC movies. We are always looking for something new to watch together. Right now its Lost (his first time to watch) and I’m rewatching it with him.

      Just keep in mind there are some violent parts and it is also a little dark. You may want to preview an episode first!
