The Umbrella Academy : Review
The last couple days I've been spending some of my free time watching movies and series, especially series because they are able to go in-depth and make you feel like you know the characters.
I was scrolling through my watchlist and I came across the umbrella academy. I remember adding it there because I saw my cousin watching it and he told me it was interesting, so I decided to give it a try.
It has an imdb rating of 8/10 which I think is quite fair. The series which is based on a 2008 comic book consists of two seasons, each season has ten episodes. The series isn't over and has been renewed for a season 3 which will be released on the 22nd of June this year.
At exactly 12 noon on October 1st, 1989 forty three random women all around the world gave birth. What's surprising about this is that they were not pregnant when they woke up in the morning.
A billionaire by the name of Sir Reginald Hargreaves travels around the world and is able to adopt seven of them. He discovers that they have supernatural abilities and he trains them to become a supernatural team called the Umbrella Academy.
Fast forward to 2019, life happens and they've all gone their separate ways. But then they are brought back together by news that their father Reginald Hargreaves is dead. As they try to solve his murder, more bad news comes when number 5 returns claiming he'd been to the future and that the world is ending in 8 days.
In their bid to stop the apocalypse that ends the world, they are faced by the Temps commission, an organization that makes sure that everything that is supposed to happen happens. Will the umbrella Academy save the world? What causes the end of the world? Who killed their father? Is number 5 crazy? Watch the umbrella Academy to find out.
When I first started watching, their origin story felt a bit whack. It still does because they never explain it, or at least they haven't, they may do it in season 3, but at the moment I just think it's dumb that 43 random women just conceive miracle children and a billionaire comes and buys them off their hands. Oh well, it's a superhero series so anything can happen. Besides all the other main origin stories are already too cliche so seeing a fresh one isn't so bad.
Everyone wants to be a superhero because they feel when they become "super" most of their problems disappear. I personally am part of this type of people. Once in a while I think that if I had even the weakest of superpowers life would be so much easier.
As the series progresses you realize that even with their super powers none of them has a perfect life. You even see that at times they wish to be normal. And this is something that most superhero movies and series don't do. Most of the time the heros have relatively perfect lives and only have to bother about saving the world, but this was a different angle which I enjoyed.
Now all that being said, mid way through some of the episodes it started to get boring, but then like most shows of this age like to do, towards the end they leave you with a scene that makes you want to watch the next.
The visual and audio effects were really good. It has great fight scenes, and special effects. Nice soundtrack too.
The umbrella Academy is a pretty decent series to watch if you're not looking for perfect heros (these guys are fucked up, lol). It has plenty of plot twists. It won't keep you hooked all through, but just about enough to be interested in the end.
Overall I'll give this a 7/10. It's definitely one worth giving a try.
oh my gosh!!!! I LOVED this show in the first season - but then.... the second season? I didn't love as much! I didn't even finish the second season because they were breaking my heart with how the story was changing so much hahaahaha it was just not as thrilling as the first season in my opinion! hehehe
when does season 3 start? I'll have to tell my daughter to keep an eye out because she did finish season 2 hahahaha
and i KNOW that we are on the same team for this week! hahaha(check my post if you want to see more people) so it doesn't count for POINTS when I encourage you hahaha
BUT - you are part of my team! hahaha so even if I don't get any points - i STILL want you to go strong this week! and GO TEAM TENGO!!!!!!!!!
love you @b0s!!!
Yes, the storyline changed a bit which was a bit annoying for me, but I eventually got used to it. Also I found out it was an adaptation from a comic book, and when I saw the differences from the comic book I appreciated it more, lol. By the way, who's your favorite character?
Season 3 comes out on the 22 June
Hehe, I managed to get my gold star today. Just have to put this post on dreemport. Oh yes, go team Tengo

I love love this series, I didn't really care about the storyline because I simply just enjoyed the idea of it, maybe it's because I enjoy superhero series.
Anyways hope you are doing good today?
I'm having the idea that that dad was somehow involved in their conception. Cause why else will someone who despises children try to adopt 43. Oh well we'll see in season 3.
Im good. Was able to get a gold star yesterday. Looking to take that into today.
I think he just wanted superhero children or something, I don't know, let's see in season three.
That's good that you got one, hopefully you get one today.
Sounds like an amazing show. Too bad I'm no movie fan 😩
How many people have you encouraged today? Did you get a gold star today?
Why don't you like movies?
I'm about encouraging others now. I've done my other tasks
I just prefer books or anime... I watch movies but I'm not dedicated. Get me Anime and I'm hooked...
hi @bos! haven't watch this series yet but it sounds interesting so yes, I think I'll have a look at it. By the way, since I'm already here let me check how are you going with the challenge? Don't forget to take that 50oz water it may sound a lot but I'm sure by now you already know how important water is to our body right? and oh, that quiet time and that workout thing don't forget about it too! see you around bos and let's nail those gold stars this week. game?
You should. And yes I was se to get a gold star yesterday. Hopefully I can take that into today.
I will be on the look out for it. I don't really like watching series because of the breaks, lolz. But if I have the chance, I will see it.
Thank you for sharing 🥰🥰.
Hope you're having a great day?
How are you going with the challenge? Have you reached out to others? If yes kudos and if no you still have the time to do that so good luck dear.
Thanks for stopping by. Yes I got a gold star yesterday. Looking forward to continue today.
Yes dear, that's the spirit, all the best for today.
Most especially, encourage other teem members, also make sure to drink water and eat very well.
Much love from #teemhope.

And than I will look if The Umbrella Academy is avaiable in german language.
Hope you didnt spend the day in front of TV but went out to catch the Star ;-)
Luckily I Noah guy.
@b0s, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @beeber
Use the !LOL or !LOLZ command to share a joke and an $LOLZ. (2/4)
Hoffentlich ist es das. Wenn Sie es sehen, würde ich gerne Ihre Meinung hören.
Ich habe es gestern geschafft, einen Stern zu fangen. Ich freue mich darauf, heute noch einen zu fangen.
I love this series and can't wait for season 3 hehe. Great write up @b0s. I guess you have to keep watching now to see if they ever explain the crazy origin story lol.
How are you doing today with the Challenge? What do you think the toughest part of it is going to be for you this week that you need support and encouragement with? Just tell me and I'll be there each day checking in on you 😉 Hope you cracked it today and got that sta @b0s...and if you're not there yet... you still have time... have fun doing it!!!
I guess I have to, and besides even if they don't I want to see what they did to mess up the time line so bad at the end of season 2.
I managed to get the gold star yesterday. Looking forward to continue that today.
The toughest part has to be the exercises. And also replying all the encouragement I get. I know this isn't required to get a star, but I have to do it anyways.
hehe yay you got the star yesterday!!!
yes! the engagement is off the charts...
and does take a while to respond to...but I am seeing such meaningful comments too... so its heartwarming and I'm loving it. Think of every response as an opportunity to encourage in return and then you get to add to your own teem's effort too... does that help to reduce the strain of it all !LOLZ
Have a great day today @b0s ... you've got this... and remember...2 birds, one stone hehe !PIZZA
Two birds with one stone, got it.
Speaking of which. How was your day? Did you bag that gold star?
This movie sure sounds interesting with the way you narrated the plot. It´s really strange to see 43 women give birth all at once? Lol but I don´t think I would be able to watch it. Episodes movie tends to steal my time as I would be engrossed into watching all at once and wouldn´t be able to do anything.
Yes, teemmate, I hope you are done with your tasks? Drink more water since there is still time left for you. Let´s get the gold stars together 🚴♂️
Yeah, no problem.
I got the gold star yesterday. Working towards today's own.
I haven't seen it yet, as I usually prefer older films, but I will give a try.
Thank you for your post.
If you do give it a try, I'd like to read what you think. I usually enjoy reading what film buffs have to say. Thanks for stopping by
hmm I confess I am pretty sure that I started to watch this a while ago, it seems vaguely familiar, however I don't really know, perhaps I shall go take a second look.
Am checking in with teem tengo and seeing how my fellow teem member is doing. I did a post as per Dreemy instructions and have this banner for us to use.
I hope that you managed to do all your tasks and got your gold star today. Let's smash this week and start each Hive day by encouraging our fellow teem tengo members first :)
We will do it and have a great week!
Yeah, you should.
I'm sure you already know I got my gold star yesterday. Looking forward to do the same today.
That is awesome, what is your football team you support?
I think you got the wrong post, but I support Chelsea 💙💙💙
hehe from your bio, not the wrong post, ah my English team too!
How have you been today, I hope you smash thursday!
Ohh, I see. Hope yesterday's game didn't upset you
I'm doing great. Just to finish up my encouraging and submit a post to dreemport.
Well to be honest I could not lose as Real Madrid are my Spanish team :)
Am glad you are doing well!
Let's get our stars and then rock Thursday :)
Yes let's do this. Go team Tengo
heck yes Go teem tengo 💪💪💪
Now, if you had superpowers you should have finished your dreemport tasks for today and done extra right? 🙄
Or if you had superpowers you wouldn't have to worry about writing daily because everything would take care of itself Shea? 🥺
Whatever is the case, I am rooting for you because I know you have an inborn superpower that will help you tackle your tasks.... Wait, make sure you don't doze off and leave me hanging with my optimism/encouragement oooo 😂😂
It means I have super powers oo. I completed my tasks, even dreemport submission. I didn't dose of, lol. I slept on the floor 😂
🤣🤣🤣🤣 your superpower is on the floor... Lemme oooo 😂😂😂😂
Oh God, who is this one?😭😭😭😭 😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣
🤣🤣🤣🤣 yes nau 😏😂😂
Hello there teemer @b0s! I didn't read your post because I want to see this series and I don't want to know the story just yet hehehe
Anyway just wanted to drop by and leave a daily reminder to do your 35 min. of physical activity 💪 Let's pump it up teemmate!
No problem, though I made sure not to mention anything that wasn't already stated in the trailer.
When you do get to watching it, I'm looking forward to hearing what you think.
Thanks for asking, I got a gold star yesterday and looking forward to taking it to today.
Oh! Sorry, I pre-judged before reading 🙈🙈🙈. That series is on my list to watch heheh I just need to start it!
Go get that gold stars 💪💪💪 You got this! Don't forget to move around 35 minutes today ^^
Im almost done with today.
Awesome @b0s! You are doing so great!! You got this 💪💪💪 Go #TeemTengo!!

Thanks, I got the gold star. Working on the second
weee get that second star too ok? have a great day bos!
I will, you too.
I really enjoyed this show. It was different and interesting. Thank you!
I'm glad you did. Thanks for stopping by
I saw this drama. I wasn't impressed at all, although parts of it are kind of interesting. Too many holes in the story line. I suppose it is okay to enjoy it for what it is, don't think, and don't ask questions.😊
Yeah, just go with the flow. Thanks for stopping by.
I am thinking when 43 women gave birth to kids and 7 were adopted by a rich man. What happend to rest of the 43???? Does the series speak about them
The way fiction is peeking into the future. I am sure a time will come it would become a reality...
Anyways, how is your water intake going on? How many gold stars are you gonna collect this week? All 5.....👍
Your content has been curated by VYB/pob curation trail.
Thanks for using the VYB/pob tag.
Yes, in season 2 they came across one of them.
Well if any movie is becoming a reality, I hope it's not this one. These guys are a mess, lol.
I got my gold star yesterday, and today I'm almost done. Just to post to dreemport and do some encouraging. How about you, how is your challenge going so far?
Superheroes thing is something I don't see as becoming a reality but the technological advancement is....
My challenge is going challenging these days. Hehe. But that's the fun to thrive anyway.
It's good to hear that you contributed to your team with gold stars. Keep rocking @b0s . And be hydrated. Hehe.
I was having fun reading the plot and in my mind I was like "now this is a movie I'd love to watch" but your opinion just spoilt it for me and now I am not sure I want to see the movie again.
Nice review by the way. Thanks for making me not want to add it to my watchlist
It's not a bad series, just that some parts in the middle of an episode get a bit boring, then they make you interested towards the end. You should give It a try you might like it. I'm actually eager to watch the next season.
Besides 7/10 ain't bad.
Nice review of the series, even though I don't watch much tv @b0s, I found the review to be very quick and inclusive. It sounds like a really good series!
This post was obtained through Dreemport.
Thanks @jamerussell. Yes it's a decent series.
I haven't watched it. But I will give it a try when I have some time.
I hope you had a great day in the challenge and got your start. And I wish you a great day tomorrow!
You should, you may enjoy it.
I completed yesterday, and I'm working on today's star.
