R16, I agree, after catching her series about the LGBT on Vice or whatever (I’m glad they’re spotlighting LGBT in other countries for once) I find her obnoxious. That spat with Pratt was a lot of virtue signaling too.

[quote]I find her obnoxious. That spat with Pratt was a lot of virtue signaling too.

I find that opinion obnoxious. So anytime someone calls out institutionalized homophobia and intolerance towards homosexuality, it's automatically "virtue signalling"? And can we stop with that phrase? I know things are a bit slower on DL but that phrase was dated back in 2017 already. Also, homos co-opting alt-right speak will never not look bizarre to me. I mean, you *do* know there's people currently typing that phrase out in relation to the one gay character on this show, don't you?

Having said that, I'm three episodes in and there's literally nothing to Ellen Page's character. She's so bland and useless and pathetic, I wish the writers had given her something better to do. And yes, she was a horrible Kitty Pryde; makes me laugh just thinking about it.

by Anonymousreply 4802/17/2019

Finished it just now and it's an enjoyable ride but nothing more. I think I understand why so many of the critics bailed after three episodes - it gets better from the fourth one on (though not by much) and it also takes about four episodes to get used to the emptiness of the show. And boy is it an empty visual feast. The huge music numbers that are completely unearned only reinforce its emptiness. Except for Diego's scene with his mother and Klaus' scene with his partner in Vietnam, none of the scenes had an emotional impact on me. Zero impression that these people have sibling-like bonds (except for Klaus and Diego) as the intimate scenes just aren't written that well. And also not shot well because the director was more concerned with capturing those damn arches instead of closeups of people's faces.

I didn't understand those isolated moments of whimsy and quirkiness. They're so tonally different from the rest of the show that they made me laugh, and not in a good way. They need to find a better balance because the current mishmash is jarring and painful to watch.

Why did we have to spend so much time with the boring hitman? That actor is really not that great, to boot. Didn't know Mary J. Blige could act. She's fine, although she struggled a bit in that one quieter scene in the cafeteria. She's better at reacting, I think. But would you have the balls to tell Mary J. Blige she needs another take?

I'm completely taken with the actor playing Diego (David Castañeda) and wish they had written more dancing scenes for him. The young actor playing Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) is such a revelation and I don't usually care for kid actors. Can you believe he's only 15? Those are some serious acting chops.

Ellen Page... sigh. I was rooting for her coming into this show, but she's just not that great, is she? She definitely didn't receive proper direction but I'm also starting to get the feeling she's just not that good of an actress. She struggled with her material from start to finish. Too bad. I didn't much care that she was mostly dressed like she dresses in real life, either.

He is seriously good. I had to check his credits to see what else he's done and he's just on a Nickelodeon or Disney series. He can have a bright career ahead of him if he gets to have more roles like this.

One critics wrote that it's just a bunch of thrown together scenes that didn't feel connected and that was true to an extent. I really don't think they knew what to do with Allison and so many scenes didn't have anything to do with the story as a whole despite how much I enjoyed them like Klaus' time in Vietnam and most of Allison's scenes.

But overall I really loved the show. It ultimately became a better version of X-Men's Dark Phoenix saga.

r65 That's a good way to put it. And what was up with people randomly running into each other in the city? That's just plain bad plotting, and they kept doing it as well. I also thought of Dark Phoenix and how it's better than that one. I just wish they worked harder on the emotional aspect because I really love watching sibling relationships on TV.

It really is. The CGI effects are really good on this. Coupled with the music licensing this show has to have quite a budget.

I don't think his origins were given. Frankly, I didn't even think of it. A talking chimp among super-powered kids and a robot mom doesn't seem weird in the context of this show.

In some way it reminds me of the recent adaption of The Haunting of Hill House.

r78 I thought it was a bit weird to show that sequence [italic]after[/italic] showing us Vanya's powers being taken away. But I loved how she was created mainly for Vanya and then Diego was the one who got attached to her the most. I really bought his emotional connection to his "mom", as well as to Diego. Not so much to that cop Eudora, though. Probably because they relayed too much (well, all) of their past relationship through exposition.

r79 I've seen people elsewhere bring that up as well. I hope we get to see more of that mansion because it's a character in its own right. I kept wanting to take a screenshot every time the shot was framed by one of it beautiful arches but there were just so many.

r80 Sir Reginald treating them as his employers rather than his kids could have had something to do with it, so that they perceived each other as coworkers rather than siblings.

Reginald fostered competition between them and made their existence focused on the image of the Umbrella Academy and their feats, so I can understand why they likely viewed each other as fellow soldiers in war than siblings which made it easier to go their separate ways and lose contact with each other. Other than the animosity/betrayal they felt towards Vanya and her book, they do care for each other (Diego going back to check up on Klaus at the VFW, Allison trying to connect with Vanya, Ben supporting Klaus) but I can see how it's hard for them to bond when frivolity was verboten in the home.

I didn't think about the age difference between Hazel and Agnes but the showrunner said that there was some pushback from Netflix execs about it but his intention was the subvert how there is always men with older women on shows and wanted to show that there are men who fall for older women.

By the end I was feeling Hazel. I like thick men.

Vulture outlines some of the biggest changes from the comics to the series. Tonally I can tell I wouldn't like the comics. It's too out there for my tastes like "Preacher". Not included in the list is that they tweaked Klaus' powers. In the comics he also levitates and he can only contact the dead while barefoot and the show gives a nod and wink to that by having Klaus barefoot in the show.

R98 in the comics Diego can hold his breath for long periods of time and throw knives with deadly precision. It is never explained if it's a skill or power, but it seems more a power. The show is making it a power.

Luther was the typical strong man. Resistant to harm and incredibly strong. The martian ape torso only added to his strength.

by Anonymousreply 10102/19/2019

The way Diego's power was presented bothered me. If he never misses, shouldn't he be covered with knives and other projectiles from head to toe? He seemed to have exactly two knives at his disposal at any one time.

Same goes for Allison's power. I understand she's had extremely bad experiences using it in the past - that montage of rumours in her head while driving was a cool scene, particularly with the final "I heard a rumour you love me" - but still, I wanted to see her use it more often. And when she told her daughter "I heard a rumour you were tired", shouldn't that have staying power and made her daughter saddled with chronic fatigue for the rest of her life, same as with Vanya? Can she control the intensity/duration of her rumours?

r95 Hadn't even noticed the age difference until your post; those execs don't give their viewers enough credit. And I love the actress but I thought Agnes was written as too helpless and almost pathetic in a way, complete with having to be rescued at the very end. Though I understand not everyone can, needs, or even wants to be a hero, which is fine.

It's eccentric like Watchmen or Preacher, with slow then action-filled parts. A few of the actors don't interest me, like Eleen's creepy new boyfriend. Tom's ape suit was disappointing. I wanted fap material. It looks like Plan Nine From Outer Space.

Still, oddly amusing.

by Anonymousreply 11302/19/2019

R102 you are the reason script writers need objective consultants . Lol, you point out so many valid flaws. Ok, so Allison's power is actually reality manipulation via lies (altering what is ). In the show they limit her to hypnotic suggestion, but respect that Allison dictates the terms intuitively/consciously . The way Allison's powers in this series work is she has a desired effect and therefore "defines the terms". So, if she understands the limit she wants implicitly then so does her target. This is why if she says , " I heard a rumor, you wanted to give me all your money," the target doesn't constantly search for every penny they own; they give her all the money the have own them at the moment. Implicitly it is understood she means the money on your person right now, so the person would not go to the ATM and empty their bank account and so forth. I'm going to answer R104 for Diego's part of your inquiry.

R104 it's a thing shows do to make the series "more interesting". It's essentially the Ghandalf effect. Some characters have powers/skills so remarkable they can solve any problem. They have to make characters stupid so the plot isn't resolved in like a few hours. Diego's ability to precisely kill humans with knives means Cha Cha and Hazel die in less than 30 minutes tops. The same with Allison. The limited her to Hypnotic Suggestion, however she could have easily made both assassins forget who they were, or some other deterrent memory like wanted to kill one another. Telekinetics make plots hard, so they avoid them as a rule. This is why Klaus is limited to being a medium on Umbrella Academy. If you watch The Gifted, sooooo many characters have water downed powers it's sad. You can't have a Blink like she was in X-Men Days of Future Past. You also can't have Flash-like characters. It's why the limit #5 to teleportation based time manipulation instead of full time manipulation like Ilyria from Angel.

The Punisher and Daredevil are about the only comic-to-TV adaptation that aren't far off b/c the upper limits of the characters still can be thwarted by normal humans.

r117 Luther wouldn't just kill his sister on the spot mere seconds after she broke down, apologizing for what she had done to Allison. Diego probably thought there was another way as well, and hoped pinning her to the ground would do the trick.

Allson not dying was ridiculous. How long did it take them to return to the academy? Number Five didn't teleport them, did he? Why not go to a local hospital instead?! Though I like that she's still alive. She didn't use her powers on her ex because she hit rock bottom and realized her entire life was a sham, built on those rumours. I mean, using it on a kid whose brain is still developing seems really fucking questionable to me.

He was the main one going on about how they shouldn't turn her off. And if he had a sudden change of heart Luther would become suspicious of Mom and the reason Diego wanted to switch her off seeing as Diego was the main one defending keeping her "alive".

Also, she was quite unwell at that point, sewing her own "skin" into that fabric. She probably wasn't maintained properly after the old bastard died. So Diego basically euthanized her out of pity.

Did we really get to see Vanya have sex with Harold? I must have blocked that out of my memory completely.

by Anonymousreply 15502/20/2019

I got the feeling that Diego was afraid that his "mom" malfunctioning may have made her kill his "dad." He switched her off out of fear that she would harm herself or someone else, or even implicate her. He knew the other siblings weren't as sympathetic to her as he was and they'd think nothing of switching her off, because they hadn't been as close to her. I do think we're meant to wonder if she's sentient and really does care about her "kids" in her own robot way.

Allison and Luther grew up together and psychologically they're siblings. So we get straight incest making out in multiple scenes and one tiny gay peck. Thanks, Netflix.

Someone on Twitter uploaded a page from the comic where Luther was surprised Klaus had a child because he assumed Klaus was gay. In an interview with Collider Sheehan said originally they were going to have Klaus fall in love with a woman in Vietnam. Elsewhere, the showrunner said they made the decision organically to make Klaus gay so he wasn't always intended to be gay, maybe bi.

[quote]I got the impression Ben was tied to Klaus and so moved only wherever Klaus went?

Ben looked surprised when Klaus discussed Dave with Diego so he wasn't with Klaus in Vietnam which makes sense as he didn't even exist then so there would be no way for him to exist in that timeline.

Maybe Ben and Klaus were the closest so that's why he's always near. He can't be sticking around for unfinished business because he would have said so to Klaus. And Klaus seems to be able to see him whether he's high or sober while he needs to be sober to communicate with other ghosts.

[quote]Maybe they'll explain that next season. I agree that Diego's and Klaus' relationship was the best. They're so different from each other but still feel like actual brothers.

With the exception of Luther and Allison, I believe  their portrayals as siblings. The battle for supremacy between Luther and Diego is like the relationship I have with my oldest brother who believes that his birth order (and in Luther's case, rank) means he's the boss. Other relationship reminds me of siblings whose closeness was tenuous and childhood and once you become adults and leave the home there is nothing really tethering you to each other, but despite that distance, you still respect the familial bond.

Magaro was also in Carol as the guy who tries to woo Rooney Mara's character away from her boyfriend.

r170 Perhaps the lesbians just have a different criteria for female sex appeal than what is traditionally sold to us through hetero popular culture.

by Anonymousreply 17402/21/2019

Plenty of lesbians have sex appeal, but Ellen Page is not one of them. I suspect that's deliberate. She doesn't trade on her sexuality or sexual expression in her performances. Plenty of men don't either. I don't necessarily think that's a problem except when her characters are supposed to be in sexual situations or have sexual chemistry with someone, so I do think it was a little bit of a handicap in this role.

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 17602/21/2019

The issue for me with her character wasn't that she was "too dour." I wouldn't expect Vanya to be very cheerful. She had reason to be dour, her upbringing was hellish. But her performance in this was downright inscrutable at times. She would say things about always being left out of her family and feeling unremarkable, lonely and not special with all the expression and nuance of someone reciting a grocery list. Flat, uninterested delivery throughout. We're supposed to think that she was angry and resentful enough to write a tell-all book about them but we didn't see much of that in her actual scenes. Classic case of telling vs showing. There was just no insight into her character's emotional life at all. In contrast the closeups of Emmy, David, Tom, Robert and Aidan showed so many layers to their characters and how they felt about each other. That scene with Diego and Grace in the first episode was heartbreaking because they put so much emotion into just a few simple lines. Ellen Page is a good actor and I think she's really likable even when playing serious roles, but it's like she phoned it in with this one for some reason. Maybe the character didn't resonate with her much?

by Anonymousreply 17702/21/2019

by Anonymousreply 17802/21/2019

Agree, R177

by Anonymousreply 17902/21/2019

I still maintain that her character was too dour. I mean, she had a roof over her head in a millionaire's house, so was her upbringing really that bad for a child of a freak birth? She could as easily have been displayed as a curiosity in a Russian circus somewhere. She was supposedly passionate playing the violin, and yet she just looked depressed doing that as well. Completely dissatisfied on every level. Even people with awful childhood traumas are cheerful now and then. Adults with fulfilling jobs and hobbies just don't tend to ponder childhood stuff on a daily basis. So, was there any other reason for her depression, apart from being single, which is a terrible reason?

r178 I loved that moment and wanted more of that.

by Anonymousreply 18002/21/2019

R178 no she was fantastic in that part and she did have occasional moments where she shone, really wish we would have seen more of the chops I know she has more consistently. I don't agree that she should have been more cheerful though. Having a roof over your head doesn't amount to much when your only parents are a literal robot and a psycho who treats you like a forgettable spare part. The whole point of the series is that these people were damaged to an extreme by their upbringing.

by Anonymousreply 18102/21/2019

It makes sense why her character would be sulky and depressed but she didn't emote in any of her scenes with Harold. When she told Allison she loved him, it came out of nowhere. She didn't act 'in love' when she was with him, and I don't mean over the top lovey-dovey stuff. It would have been nice to see the contrast between her interactions with the siblings and someone she claimed to be in love with. She showed no range in this role and I've seen her do better.

by Anonymousreply 18202/21/2019

For Vanya, a person who felt like a non-entity in her family, it makes sense to me that she would fall in love with Leonard or think she's in love with him. He told her all the right things about how special she was, that he was unnerved by her siblings abilities and preferred her, he was supportive of her career. It was everything she craved. It may not have been a passionate love like Klaus and Dave but for her it was a comfortable love. And being as closed off and detached as she was, I think this is the only way Vanya can express affection.

by Anonymousreply 22202/25/2019

Okay. I'll be the Negative Nancy. I usually love genre Sci-Fi/fantasy shows, but this was a derivative mess and only mildly enjoyable.

Most scenes telegraph quite loudly to the viewer "THIS IS A BLATANT RIPOFF/MASHUP OF X-MEN, HEROES, AND HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE!"

The X men tie in is obvious. From Heroes we get the convoluted time travel stuff that doesn't make a lot of sense. The ending/apocalypse with the characters coalescing around Vanya screams "save the cheerleader, save the world." From Haunting of Hill House, you get the estranged siblings coming together--in a creepy old mansion--due to a death in the family. Hell, you even have one of the siblings having written a tell all book that pisses off the siblings. Just like Hill House.

What you have is a mess cobbled together from a ton of other shows.

The music is intrusive and annoying, and is clearly used to pad the episode length.

None of the characters are engaging except maybe 5. Vanya, Luther, and Diego are all brooding with no soul. Allison has almost no personality at all. And Klaus? Sheehan is just giving us his Misfits character. Oh and thanks, writers, for yet again making the crazy/drug addicted/promiscuous character the gay one. It would have been much more groundbreaking to make Luther or Diego gay. But no. More stereotype drivel.

The plots get too convoluted. The time travel stuff doesn't stand up to much scrutiny. Many of the plot threads go unresolved. The Luther/Allison almost incest stuff is cringey. On and on.

I suspect the show is going to end up like Lost. They'll write themselves into a bunch of corners and we won't end up with a satisfying ending/resolution.

I think I just need a break from these types of shows.

It was a passably enjoyable show with some standouts and decent CGI, but it really isn't anything special at all.

by Anonymousreply 23002/25/2019

Blah blah blah, R228. Spare me the mental gymnastics.

The bottom line is these shows refuse to just show an exclusively gay male, and always attempt to de-gay them to some degree. Whether it's making them bi/pan/fluid or putting them in mmf threesomes and straight marriages like Elliot.

I guarantee UA will do the same with Klaus.

Mark my word.

by Anonymousreply 23102/25/2019

I like some of the stuff this show is doing, it has style and a nice sense of humor and potential...but they are failing on the character development part.

Half way through and Luthor, Allison and Vanya are pretty boring and not developed in a way that makes you emotionally invested in these characters. It doesn't help that the acting isn't that great. That little scene like Diego's flashback with their mother was great, but it stands out because of how rare moments like that have been that gives the show a needed sense of humanity.

Robert Sheehan is very watchable though, but of course he is fun to watching playing right into type. Won't complain how he is frequently half naked as well.

[quote]Except for Diego's scene with his mother and Klaus' scene with his partner in Vietnam, none of the scenes had an emotional impact on me. Zero impression that these people have sibling-like bonds (except for Klaus and Diego)

I agree. Klaus and Diego are the only two that felt like they had real chemistry and played characters that grew up together, but then they are probably the two best actors of the heroes.

[quote] When he was talking to Diego about Dave, Diego assumed it was a girl. Were the siblings unaware of his attraction to men growing up? And I'm not saying he's gay, he could be bi. Is there more of his backstory in the comics?

They have been estranged since they were like 17, it is realistic to me that Diego wouldn't really know much about Klaus' sexuality.

[quote]I can't gauge how old he's supposed to be. In the comics the siblings disbanded after his death but on the show haven't they been estranged for over ten years?

Yeah, that is what confuses me. Based on what we know of the timeline Ben should be about 17, but they didn't cast an actor who looks that age.

R241 you misunderstand. It's not about Sheehan playing the same character. It's about Klaus having a personality. None of the other characters on the show (except maybe 5) have any personality, they are two-dimensional. Allison is a prime example. If Sheehan brings his own personality to the character, I'm all for it if it makes the character interesting. If every character on that show was bland, I wouldn't have bothered watching. He is the reason his interactions with Ben and Diego work. Can you imagine a show with a bunch of Allisons and Vanyas?

[quote]Allison and Luther grew up together and psychologically they're siblings.

I don't even mind them having the incest plotline, what I do think it is weird is no one judges them for it. The other siblings should think it is weird, I mean c'mon, they are siblings since infancy. You'd think say Diego would give them shit. It also robs the drama of that plotline, if no one cares about their incestuous relationship, then what is even the conflict?

[quote]No love for Kate Walsh?

I think she did an admirable job in trying to support what IMO is the show's weakest plotline, all that background stuff with the time agency.

Though speaking of side characters Cameron Britton did do a good job as Hazel, guy has talent, he was also great in his supporting role in "Mindhunter".

by Anonymousreply 26102/27/2019

The incest plotline wasn't even weird to me because I could understand why being siblings wasn't an issue to Allison and Luther.  Their entire upbringing was unconventional: a man who was supposed to be a father but instead used them as test subjects and put them in the line of danger; a brother who disappears and no one cares and another one who is killed. By all appearances friovility was verboten. They were raised like they were classmates in Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. It's essentially a boarding school.

The dirigible was The Hindenburg seen as a sabotage target for the time agents, just like the JFK assassination.

The spaceships I don't know. My first thought was it was showing a WW3 launch of a flock of ICBMs. Second guess the billionaire evacuated to earth from another world.

The weird skyline, well Canada is a weird and strange place.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
