‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3 Review: Hargreeves Are Back Better Than Ever.
‘The Umbrella Academy’ is set in a universe where 43 women around the world give birth simultaneously at noon on October 1, 1989, despite none of them showing any sign of pregnancy until labor began. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves and turned into a superhero team that he calls “The Umbrella Academy.” Hargreeves gives the children numbers rather than names, until all but one are eventually named by their robot-mother, Grace, as Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Ben, and Vanya. While putting six of his children to work fighting crime, Reginald keeps Vanya apart from her siblings’ activities, as she supposedly demonstrates no powers of her own, but this was only in Season 1…
In this new Season we finally see the comeback of one of the most fun super hero family of all time and they return with A LOT of style, we begin with one of the best Episodes, the first Episodes starts with a lot of energy and at the same time make us remember how we love this characters. The new characters, the Sparrow Academy was an amazing addition to this series, it was awesome to see new “heroes” bringing us some new epic powers.
The plot here is also very good but at the same time not too much different than the others, end of the world and they need to do something about it, this season has the best additions that this series could ever had before, highlighting Stanley that has the best comic part in this show.
Most part of this series is inside an hotel, but it’s full of mysteries that make us in the edge of the couch! Ben returns but not as we remember him, is a total new character with different feelings and thoughts.
The soundtrack, as always, is amazing, they haven’t missed once, the opening by the way was so funny and people will definetely love.
The action scenes are PEAK, they were very well choreographed and really well filmed too, loved all the fights in it.
At the end all i can say is that if you really enjoy a super hero tv show, then ‘The Umbrella Academy’ is probably the best option of all, despite beginning very weak in the first season, they are getting better and better and i will love to see where it goes.
