Umbrella Academy could have been another throwaway Netflix sci-fi property that didn’t quite hit. But it quickly proves it’s trying to do something different and interesting and overall we liked it. And even the parts we didn’t like haven’t stopped us from being excited for season 2.

As always, we assume if you’re here you’re watching or have watched the show. In episode 1, the siblings are settling back into their mansion and Luther puts a record on. Everyone starts dancing separately and the way they do it really unique and fun in a Wes Anderson sort of way. It hooked Kristin immediately and really set the tone for the silliness of the show. It was really well done.

It’s an imperfect show, mostly the fact that it is tonally all over the place. Despite its faults though we enjoyed Umbrella Academy. It takes itself a little too seriously at times, but ultimately executes its overarching story well. To hear our complete thoughts on it, grab a donut and get comfortable for today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
