elisi: Five (The future's shit) (Darkest timeline)
[personal profile] elisi
I sort of want to write something about Brexit, but it'll probably be outdated within the hour, and ancient news by tomorrow.

(Not to mention all the other news from around the world. *hands*)

On the other hand, The Umbrella Academy is a thing that exists in the world, so not everything is bad. I am watching it for the second time, remembering what it's like to fall in love with a show and a [weird and wonderful] world and a whole bunch of characters. And what characters!! I can't even. There are SO MANY, and I love them all. (Even the stupid/annoying ones.) Although Five and Klaus were basically custom-made to hit alllll my buttons. Like ticking off everything on a list of 'Stuff that elisi loves'. That hasn't happened in a long, long time.

There are many excellent shows out there, but there are very, very few that hit me in that way, so this was a most wonderful surprise. ♥

ETA: There will likely be spoilers in the comments...

ETA2: THE MUSIC! I can't believe I forgot to mention the music. The music (and how it's used) is just incredible!

This is how I feel about Brexit, too.

I know what you mean about the Umbrella Academy! Five really clicked for me, and I think I liked Diego more, although Klaus was also awesome!

They are all so good! And that's the thing, it's not "My faves versus characters I don't like" it's "My faves and other characters who are also really interesting!"

That's how I feel! I'm like, "Ugh, Luther", but also I feel for him, and he's got a good arc, and his choices make sense given what his life has been like!

It turns out that sometimes "Believe in your father and trust he knows what he's doing and has your best interests at heart" is a really shitty life choice!

UA is so great. I was happily surprised to find a show where all the characters - and there are so many - are wonderful, and am committing fic.

It's been a while for me too!

Just popping by to say YES to all your Umbrella Academy thoughts! Klaus and Five are my favourites too! <3 I love the quirkiness and the visual aesthetics, and that there is something fascinating about each and every character on the show.

Oh, I love The Umbrella Academy! I finally was able to watch the whole thing with BB, and it was pretty much magnificent, even if I have more questions than answers (like, where the hell are the other 35-odd babies? And why'd they happen? And why does anyone want The End of the World?

I have the same feeling about all the characters - I like or love them all, with the exception of The Handler. (Cha-Cha's lucky she's played by Mary J. Blige, which ups her likability quotient for me.) I mourn Pogo ....
