Did You Know?


Cha-Cha's line "We get to visit exotic places, meet new people, and then kill 'em." is remarkably similar to the line in Deadpool (2016) when Wade is discussing his teens with Weasel: "...when I was his age, travelling to exotic places... meeting new and exciting people. And then.. Killing them." See more »


When a young Harold has his Umbrella Academy figurines on the table, their names are all visible except Five. We previously found out that it was in fact their mom (Grace) who named them, and it is implied that this is done after Five disappears, hence why he is the only one without a name. As such, Harold should have named his figures by number and not their given names as they likely wouldn't have been given them yet. However we see at the start of episode 2, 'Run Boy Run', when Five is stuck in the future and runs back to the academy, he calls for Ben and Vanya by name, not number, implying he either rejected a name or refuses to use it.

Can I make it to episode 10?
19 March 2019 | by charlesriley-46000See all my reviews

I'm really trying here...I've made it to episode seven, but it's getting harder and harder to watch. The acting is HORRIBLE...the dialog is forced and hard to watch. The story line is labored and is taking too long to tell the viewer. I want to make it through to the end to see how it wraps up, but know that I'm not enjoying this at all...except for the music! The music is one thing almost everyone likes about the series. I'll post something after I make it through to episode 10.
