The Umbrella Academy: Season 2 – TPToA Podcast 178

Reader Rating0 Votes
A more balanced season that gives a broader view of the characters lives.
The first seven minutes of the season is awesome action packed coolness.
Five is an incredible lead and the weight of the show falls on his shoulders.
It gets a bit wandery at times and some episodes feel unnecessary.
Some of the new characters really lack the interest of those that are now missing.
In some ways it feels a bit like its repeating plot points of season 1.
