The Umbrella Academy Season 1 Review: Family Dysfunction Gets the Superhero Treatment
By Andrea Thompson
The Umbrella Academy series leaves many questions in its wake, and they’re not entirely those it wants us to ask. That’s not to say it doesn’t have a lot going for it. For one, it’s a superhero offering that’s not made by Marvel or DC, or even based off a comic from either. Thankfully, it also has some genuinely entertaining and gratifying moments along with its rather unique perspective, which borrows equally from the best of Wes Anderson and Tim Burton without indulging in their worst qualities. The show’s faults are at least entirely its own.
