UMBRELLA ACADEMY (Netflix): UNSPOILERY BIT: Well! This is tv show of a comic I’ve only read a couple of trades of. When I did I loved the art style of Bá, but found the story difficult to follow and a bit mad. I was keen to see how it would translate to screen as the bonkers elements are so key and pervasive. I was really surprised that they pulled it off! It was a really good story with just the right amount of crazy left in or included subtly. If you like superhero stuff and interesting stories definitely give it a go!
And look at this image, it’s amazing! It’s the cast of the tv show drawn in the style of the comic! Art imitates life...etc. So cool. The artist really captured the faces, but I could find the name to credit them :( -please comment if you can find it.
SPOILERY BIT!: Stuff like Hazel and ChaCha were handed really well I thought, they did have the masks for a good chunk of their intro and even later on. There were scenes where they were unmasked but had a neon light of Blue or Pink in starkly lighting their face which was a great touch.
It was cool that Pogo’s appearance needed no description or backstory. Similarly Spaceboy’s body was well done, but surprised it wasn’t a suit as it appears to be in the comic (is it?). I haven’t read many of the books, so I can’t imagine how the Hazel love story would have gone down as I assume he always had his mask, so was this new to the tv show? Let me know.
The kid playing 5 was really great, don’t you think. Lastly it was funny there were so many non-American lead actors playing Americans.
