It seems that the series is full of the powerful events and exciting adventures of a family of superheroes who are turning into an ecclesiastical 'Umbrella' to solve their father's problem. Begin those tasks, where worried their mother is hiding something, Luther and Allison call a family meeting. Cha-Cha and Hazel catch a big break in their hunt for Five.
"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.
