In the last episode of The Bad Take I was lamenting the lack* of superheroes outside the Marvel mould in pop culture, so Umbrella Academy was a treat. It was a little slow at first, but once things started happening, it became a fun story.
The “hero running from his/her past” cliche is everywhere at this point, but I didn’t mind it in this show. Also, the dormant world-ending megapower kid was predictable. Still a fun story.
This show also had the perfectest OST. It was so good I had to make a playlist of all the songs.
Also, the comic this show is based on, was written by Gerard Way, the frontman of My Chemical Romance (who just announced a reunion, by the way. Yay!)
