    The Umbrella Academy

    After having some time to digest, I have to say that I'm more impressed with the cast than I was even originally. Tom Hopper (Dickon Tarly!) really did a good job with Luther IMO - and Luther is to me the least likable of all the Academy. The dance between Luther/Allison was such a lovely scene. Yes, he was hampered by the costuming, but having read the graphic novels, I think I prefer that they went with the costuming rather than CGI for his role - the physical awkwardness was something he conveyed so well, and I don't think he could have done that with CGI. Diego surprised me with how sympathetic I was to his character. I worried going in that I would have difficulty keeping the male characters apart, but David Castañeda really created a memorable role there (and I MAY be crushing a bit on Diego. Just a tiny bit. A-hem, I'll be in my bunk for a few minutes). I was inclined to dislike Allison, again, having read the source material, and Emmy Raver-Lampman really was able to make her a character that I could like (even though the concept of The Rumor was not very well developed as an adult here). I wish we'd seen a little bit more of her daughter - it felt like that storyline was only used when it would push the story forward, and ignored when it was convenient. And Justin Min was really very understated and kind of perfect as Ben. That was a departure from the source material, and frankly, I thought it was borderline brilliant. Although I couldn't help hoping he'd break through and become fully corporeal for us before the end of the season. Oh well. There's always NEXT season, RIGHT, NETFLIX? There's been plenty said already about Five and Klaus, and I have nothing but praise for the actors playing them. Vanya was kind of...I get it, a tough concept. I do agree with someone earlier, I don't think it was confirmed that young Vanya killed ALL those nannies, but I put a lot more weight on Sir Reginald for the mistakes the young kids made than on the kids themselves. Ellen Page did well with what she had, I think. I liked her less and less as the episodes progressed, but I think that's the way it was supposed to happen. Some parts of her story felt a little drug out. Cha-Cha and Hazel were so much fun! Those two, especially Hazel, grew on me throughout the episodes. And I really enjoyed Kate Walsh as The Handler, and I felt like she was really relishing the role. It was something outside the confines of what she's usually done. I hope we get more about Pogo, and Mom in the future. Even Sir Reginald the Supreme Asshole, the Jor El from the bad place, please.
