Before The Handler unfreeze time, Number Five picked up Hazel's gun and removed the magazine; later when Hazel tried to shoot the gun was out of bullet, yet there should be one bullet loaded in the chamber as the gun was clearing being fired before time freeze. Also it may be hard to believe a professional assassin can't immediately feel the weight and shift of balance of his own gun without magazine. See more »

Another great episode of the promising 1st season

Despite not being a fan of the comic book series, I watched the entirety of Season 1 of The Umbrella Academy and so far it got me completely hooked. It had a great premise (a comedic version of X-Men), done with great comedy and good drama, the acting from everyone involved is great, the action is pretty cool, and the music is good too.

Number Five is another great episode. Yes, the pacing could've been a little better, but that's my only quibble. Everything else is great. The story continues to intrigue me with thought-provoking writing, it's stupendous world building around the Umbrella Academy, and wonderful characters. The acting is still great with Aidan Gallagher continue to impress as Number Five while Tom Hooper and Robert Sheehan also do good jobs as Luther and Klaus (who continues to steal the show with not only his great comedy, but an even greater depth to him). The cinematography continues to be well made, the costumes are nice, and the music is still good.

Overall, another great episode of the promising 1st season. :)
