Both shows premiere tomorrow. Which are you more excited for and why?
What is the Umbrella Academy?
In short, it's a Netflix show based on a Dark Horse Comics series about a family of superpowered adopted siblings who are told by their time-travelling brother that the world is ending in 8 days, but none of them know why or how to stop it. I'd highly recommend it, I'm 4 episodes in thus far and I really enjoy it.
@gotoucanario: @the_stegman: Yeah I found Umbrella Academy to be really underwhelming. Several characters were so poorly done that they were cringe-worthy, particularly Luthor and Diego. The plot was also predictable as hell. Number 5 was well done though.
What streaming service is Doom Patrol on? I couldn't find any info about it relevant to Australia.
@alphaelli: you do you really do
by episode 2 they were up to where the Defenders got to in about episode 6
we're already introduced to and gotten quite a bit of backstory of most of the characters (still getting more fleshed out in issue 3 though) and they were in to Battle (gatting their buts kicked and saving themselves by pure luck that is)
it's a great mix of quirky comedy and badassery in a story that doesnt take itself seriously at all.

In three episodes so far we've gotten more depth of the four characters (IMHO) than in how many seasons of CW Arrow/Flash and SG combined.
@beatboks1: Yeah, almost everywhere I look, people only speak highly of the series(). After reading some posts in this thread, it pretty much confirms to me that I need to watch as well.
The Underlined is my Opinion as well so far
If DCU continues at this quality I cant wait for Swamp Thing, Stargirl and Harlequin.
