“FIVE FOR THE WIN…. Each season of The Umbrella Academy has featured some standout performances, but Aidan Gallagher — who portrays the teleporting “Five” Hargreeves — continues to cement his status as one of the show’s best assets across all three seasons. As a grizzled, cynical, 60-year-old assassin trapped in a 13-year-old child’s body, Gallagher never falters in his performance, which transcends precociousness and gets better — and more entertaining — with every season.” —Rick Marshall, 6/22/22
