Umbrella Academy Season 2 - Netflix
Same weird family. New weird problems.

For those of you that watched Season 1 - Season 2 drops on Friday.

For those of you that didn't watch Season 1 what are you waiting for? The series is based on the graphic novels of the same name and follows seven siblings who were all born at the same time and on the same day to mothers with no sign of pregnancy and were later adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves played by Colm Feore. Each of them have unique superpowers and season 1 opens after news of their father's death. 

Season 2 opens after 5 transports everyone back in time to the 60's to stop the apocalypse from happening. Of course based on the opening scene below that doesn't seem to work as well as he expected.

Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance created and wrote the comic series, illustrated by Gabriel Bá. Way also had a lot of input on the Netflix series including the sound track.

Really enjoyed season 1and the cliffhanger season ending. Ready to see how things work out in season 2.

I've been waiting. Klaus and Five rank up there in the top of my favorite characters.

I liked Hazel and Cha-Cha in season one. That story line with Klaus in Viet Nam was pretty trippy. I'll be happy to see more of Ben in season 2.

Yes on all accounts. 

The only question is this. Do I sit and watch every episode Friday, or space my viewing out? Such a dilemma.

My gf really likes this series so I'm nearly certain we'll be bringing this across the weekend. We watched the whole season 5 of The 100 last weekend.

I'm a glutton (for delights)! I will devour them all until I get to the end. Because there are more "goodies" coming through the pipeline, I wan to be ready to consume each one in its term. (Chuckles.)

You're points ahead then. My wife's tastes are nothing like mine, and if we do "agree" on viewing material, I find myself pointing out all of the continuity issues with whatever we are watching. Fun game, and better than paying attention to the actual story.

I do have my son though, and my guess is that we will get through the entire season.

Glutton is a great term here. All of the streaming services make it too easy to camp out, then you feel miserable afterward, or at least I do. Like over eating at grandma's house.

We do agree on a lot, but we diverge in other areas where I'll watch something darker and bloodier - she will go with some super silly comedy where there are no likable characters. She calls football season napping season...LOL!

I have myself a ball! I never knew how much I like having a whole series presented to me in a 'day' until Netflix. Now, I am the 'discipline' and the episodes I can possess and repeat as often as I want. I remember one series in my early days of Netflix that I watched 63 episodes in one weekend (Fri-Sun). That series, "Breaking Bad." I discovered why that show won Emmy awards back to back. Impressive and 'riveting,' I think that is the series that taught me to consume as big a chunk of Netflix "buffet" as fast and as often as I can—rarely have they failed to timely make more.

You ever watch "The Shield"? FX series from mid to early 2000s. Found it on HULU a few weeks ago. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed that one. It was a little more riveting when it first aired, but still a good one. If you haven't watched it, might be one to check out. Good characters. Claudette and Kavanaugh still as tough as I remembered them.

I've got that going for me at least. My wife is a fan, or at least enough of one to sit through one game.

The Shield is not free to me on Comcast. And a search does not bring it up to play on NetFlix. I do remember the series on broadcast television, nevertheless .

I have several 'hot' characters in this series. (Love their story-line.) Five is the most interesting and intriguing, because he looks like a kid. Yet, he will terrorize and cut the heart out of any group choosing to assault him! That makes him quite delightful. Also, Klaus is so 'outcast' and yet so belonging to this family. I can feel the love for him from them all. Friday's Season 2 is appointment television for me!

Oh and the second reel "opening scenes" is the fhit!

May have to rewatch the first season. Brush up a little for the start of the second.

I did rewatch the last episode from season 1 and I'm glad I did.

This is a pretty good show. Been waiting patiently (or impatiently) for Season 2.

Twisted: Has anybody (here) tried to coax your fingers to do what Klaus (article photo: right side: feather boa) is doing with his left hand? Quite nice!  Reset: Do it again!

Tried it and it does take a little concentration but it is doable.  Though for whatever reason my index finger shakes when doing it.

We caught episode 1 last night (if 1am is "last night") and it was excellent.

Okay! That opening on the show tonight was "to die for" and that closing line, breathtakingly unexpected. Totally enjoyable. "Five" quirkily fits expectations as I knew he would. He reminds me of a character in the series, "Transfers."  A+

Watched 9 episodes over the weekend. Diago's obsession with JFK was getting a little annoying, but overall I liked the season. I'm hoping I get time tonight to watch that last episode.

Funnily interesting. I seem to have taken a modified Transyferous Rex's watch style. Unusual for this glutton! I am charging myself to watch one episode an evening! That means tonight I enjoy Episode 4!

I finished last night. A lot going on there in that last episode and a lot of potential for a 3rd season.

I didn't pace myself very well, although I did manage to spread it out over a four day period.

That's okay. I 'forgive' you is you need it! (Chuckles.) You SAVED me from consuming everything on my entertainment plate over one weekend! I am actually enjoying an episode a night. Insight! Thanks again! Wonder how long I can keep it up; or will I run into too many viewing opportunities and cave. Oh well, life is swell when you have good problems!

I bet you had a ball. So far I am loving every minute of 'Five'!  And the soundtracks! I heard some Andy Williams as a 'blast from the past' and it sent me searching for the song! Of course, Youtube had it. Of course!

I think I heard The Scarlet Witch and Vision show will be on Disney + this fall as scheduled, but almost everything else is still being pushed back to sometime next year. I still need to watch Hanna Season 2 on Amazon Prime. Also if you haven't watched The Expanse that's an awesome show.

Yeah, not sure if I didn't pay attention last season, but I've been thinking the track selection was pretty good this season.

As for viewing...planned on watching one a night, but the next episode starts so quickly...might as well.

The Expanse is 'hot' future technology (dreaming) in cinema-making. I am impressed by it.

It aught to keep you busy for a few weeks. I'm waiting for season 5 to drop.
