The Umbrella Academy is one of the better comic book TV adaptations we’ve seen, and doesn’t rely on digital effects that are often overused in motion pictures of the same genre. One of the series’ strengths is in character development, and even with the dozen or so main subjects the story manages to equally balance their importance. While The Umbrella Academy TV series varies from the comic book much to the chagrin of fans who started following the story ten years ago, show creator Jeremy Slater has done a great job adapting it to a live-action TV show. It definitely gets our thumbs up, especially since it can be watched in 4k/HDR. But even in HD or DVD quality the series is worth checking out. Read our full review of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix.
