Palmat's rating of the film The Umbrella Academy

Great show with shades of both X-men, Watchmen and The Royal Tenenbaums. What I appreciate the most is that the show refuses to get bogged down in superhero CGI mayhem in favour of family and character drama. The casting and acting is very good and the production design and score/soundtrack are solid. Sure, not all parts of it are 24 carat gold, but as a TV-shows go, this is excellent and way better than many shows.
