The Umbrella Academy: Season 1 (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: The Umbrella Academy unfurls an imaginative yarn with furtive emotion and an exceptionally compelling ensemble, but the series' dour sensibility often clashes with its splashy genre trappings.

Critic Reviews for The Umbrella Academy Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (18)

Although the plot wilfully meanders and much of the dialogue comes straight from the Big Book of Script Cliches, this is overall a blast.

It has flaws and excesses, but the series...nonetheless lands in the sweet spot between comedy and drama, and between a plot-and-action-driven narrative and character exploration.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The result is a season of television that seems at once overstuffed and thinned out - long on character and events, but short on any sense of mounting tension, urgency or consequences.

It's never as cutting edge or plainly cool as it so desperately wants to be.

Some choices make the 10-episode first season easy to digest - inviting you to shut off your brain and go along for the ride - but too many fail to live up to the show's creative possibilities.

This is one of the best and most dynamic TV series I've watched in quite some time; from the cast to the music to the fight scene choreography, this show goes all out.

Netflix's ambitious sci-fi series The Umbrella Academy based on the Dark Horse comics and graphic novels is somber, profound and highly entertaining as well as gorgeous to look at.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Unlike the recently concluded A Series of Unfortunate Events, another cult property brought to life on Netflix, the Umbrella Academy appears to be slightly hesitant in fully embracing the weirdness of its source material.

Feb 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Umbrella Academy blends self-aware humor with stylish storytelling to deconstruct an already overpopulated genre.

Feb 15, 2019 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

In keeping with recent outings like The House on Haunted Hill and Sabrina, the Umbrella Academy has stepped just far enough away from its source material to engage all audiences and close enough to please those who were already fans.
