Go Watch Season 2 of ‘The Umbrella Academy’

So as to avoid spoilers, all I have to say is this,

GO WATCH IT!

It was an experience of epic proportions! So do yourselves a favor, open up Netflix,

AND WATCH IT!

And if you don’t have Netflix, ask your bestie for the password so that you can WATCH IT together.
