1. Umbrella Academy on Netflix so others don't have to search.

2. Enjoy, I thought it some of the best dark sci-fi on Netflix.

Best in quite a while actually.

Have fun.

10. Still in Season 1

Only on the fourth episode. Really dark, but I'm a post-apocalyptic sci-fi junkie.

4. We enjoyed it, recently finished season 2.

I read the graphic novels after watching Season 1. Iíve got to say, if Iíd read the graphic novels first, they wouldnít have made much sense. There were a lot of gaps that the series filled in. Good music, too.

5. I am on Episode 10 of Season 2.....

Love #5.... If there is ever a Biopic made of the late Jerry Lewis, Aiden Gallagher would be perfect for the role as the younger Jerry. The likeness is uncanny.

6. The actor who plays Number 5 is extraordinary

Keep an eye on him. He is 16 now.

I thought the second season was a little repetitive to the first. Are we going to have a Dark Phoenix story line every season?

Enjoyed the show quite a bit.

8. It's not too teen-oriented?

Iím looking for my next binge, Iíve passed this one over cause it seems too teen-ish, am I wrong?

9. Teen age

By the time the story starts, the characters are older. Some teenage stuff in flashbacks, but very minimal.

11. I'm just loading it up to give it a look-see.

If the science fiction is good, Iím in!

13. It's a lot of fun!

I watched Season 1 all the way through a few months back, then started Season 2 when it was released.

I decided that I needed to binge both seasons to make sense of it all, so I am back on Season 1. Unfortunately, I have not had the time to consistently watch it, but even 2-3 shows a week helps understand it better.

14. It's definitely entertaining and worth a watch ...

#5 and Klaus totally make the show though, without their performances it would be pretty weak.

Mom and Dad are also good but not really in it that much.

And Ellen Page is good in it too.
