The Umbrella Academy never delivers on its intrinsic potential. It’s just one more half-hearted attempt to capitalize on the genre’s popularity.

Ellen Page is utterly wasted until the season’s last two episodes, by which point Umbrella Academy has squandered most of the goodwill its occasional bursts of stylistic inspiration have generated.

It’s not lacking plot, but in the end it’s just far too anxious about doling out answers to focus on the elements that could’ve made it great.

If it does return for a second run, it would be nice to see some more genuinely fresh ideas – without the over-reliance on tried, tested and tired tropes from years past.

The show is every bit as good, as delightfully odd, and as touching as the comic.

It’s frankly difficult to think back to how everything began in this crazy show after having buzzed through its 10 episodes, because it’s so full of layered narratives. ... The Umbrella Academy is incredibly interesting, enjoyable, quirky, and well worth your time.
