The Umbrella Academy (Dark House comics)

Binge-watched this series with my wife a few weeks ago. I give it a 5 star rating. Truly weird, fun, mysterious with a great cast and very good secondary characters. A bit slow at the beginning but once the narrative wheels started really turning we couldn't stop watching!

«The plot revolves around a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who reunite to solve the mystery of their father's death, and the threat of an impending apocalypse.»

I enjoyed the show a lot, although I thought the last few episodes were a bit rushed and led to a somewhat disappointing ending. Otherwise, it was very well done.

It was definitely much better than the comic series it was based on, IMO.
