The Umbrella Academy – Season 1

For awhile I was worried about Netflix cancelling Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil (more than likely to be followed by The Punisher and Jessica Jones) but after seeing the first season of The Umbrella Academy, a new series based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, I’m a bit more comfortable because […]
