The Umbrella Academy is rated TV-14. It's dark, but not "your kids can't watch this" kinda dark. There's blood, coarse language and some intense scenes. So, pretty much the same stuff your kids see at school everyday.

The Umbrella Academy, in short, is based on the comic book of the same name. It's about a dysfunctional family of superheroes raised by their adoptive, eccentric billionaire, father and "AI" nanny. The group of 7 siblings, all born on the same day to different mothers around the world , were once destined to work together as a team to save humanity. However, for reasons as diverse as each of their personalities, things never worked out and they all split while still in their teens. It took the untimely death of their father some years later to bring them all together once again. That's where the story begins.

The Umbrella Academy comic book series is created and written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. Way was the frontman of the rock band "My Chemical Romance" for 12 years until they split up in 2013.

If you know nothing about the comic, that's ok. It may just take an episode or two to get used to the idea that the superheroes aren't like Superman or Spider-Man. The Academy's almost-anti-heroes don't fly or shoot webs. Instead, they each possess peculiar abilities like conjuring the dead , or jumping through space and time , to name two.

Why are the siblings numbered? Their "monster" father, industrialist Reginald Hargreeves, is to thank for that . He adopted them as children and gave them numbers. Number One , is the leader.

15-year-old Aidan Gallagher , takes on a very "adult" role. He spent the majority of his young career on a Nickelodeon show called, "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn". I can say with 100% certainty that Gallagher's role as "Number Five" is more "" than "Nicky Harper". That's not a bad thing, either.

Ellen Page is remarkable, Tom Hopper is as fantastic as his body is sculpted, David Castañeda is muy bien, the "rumor" about Emmy Raver-Lampman is spot-on, Robert Sheehan is awesomely adjective-gay.

Mary J. Blige and Cameron Britton are terrific as assassins Cha-Cha and Hazel, as is Adam Godley playing motion-captured Pogo, the domesticated, philosophic ape. The late arriving Kate Walsh plays the ambivalent Handler responsible for ordering hits on those who screw with the timeline. I can see Walsh playing this type of character; it suits her very well .

Look at this soundtrack, The Doors, Etta James, Noah Gallagher, They Might Be Giants, Gerard Way , Queen, Adam Ant, Tiffany, and the list goes on. More than 45 songs, including composer Jeff Russo's haunting score. The music makes so many scenes even better. I enjoyed the soundtrack so much that I curated a list on .

It's unusual story, clever writing and wonderful players make for an excellent weekend binge. Don't get left behind on this feast.
