Hawaii Five-0 - Ho'opio 'ia e ka noho ali'i a ka ua

The only member of Five-0 not to have a stressful night is Danny (Scott Caan) who gives shelter to Rachel (Claire van der Boom) and Charlie (Zach Sulzbach) during the storm.

The Umbrella Academy - We Only See Each Other at Weddings and Funerals


Based on the opening mini-series of the comic of the same name by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, Netflix's The Umbrella Academy begins with the reunion of a dysfunctional family due the passing of their adopted father (Colm Feore). What makes this family so unique is the father was a eccentric scientist who adopted seven children, all of who were born on the same day to separate mothers all over the world who each experienced spontaneous pregnancy, not out of any love or philanthropy but out of scientific curiosity. As children, the group were turned into heroes he believed were destined to save the world. "We Only See Each Other at Weddings and Funerals" offers a solid introduction to the comic's opening (and best) arc, involving the return of the lost member of the team (Aidan Gallagher) who reappears still in the form of a 13 year-old but who has lived for decades after becoming stuck in a post-apocalyptic future.
