Screener Squad: The Umbrella Academy Season 2

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Review


The familial super-difficulties of this dysfunctional group reunite (eventually) in the 60s in this second season to Netflix’s adaptation of Gerard Way’s popular alternative superhero comic. This time around they have to deal with time-displacement woes, amnesia, a talking fish, a new triad of Commission killers, the civil rights movement, the impending assassination of JFK, and new folks with powers. There’s a lot to take in and Chris, Marcos, Jordan, and Dogget did an admirable job putting it all together coming to the conclusion that this is a big step up from season 1. Listen to their review here.
