It seems that the series is full of powerful and important events for expatriate members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes called the Umbrella Academy, where they work together to solve their father's very difficult problem. The events begin its events through Sparks fly when Vanya finds her siblings holding an emergency family meeting without her. Five starts his new job at HQ. Cha-Cha faces a dilemma.
"Umbrella" looks, feels and sounds different - music does much of the heavy lifting, and effectively so. It's a gorgeous-looking production that evokes another world, with both feet still firmly planted in this one.
The Umbrella Academy has a lot of ideas it wants to play around with to be as substantive as it is occasionally stylish, and that's a more than admirable trait, but it's tough to argue it makes up for its overall lack of inventiveness.
