    This show ain't for everyone. But if you're into a slow-paced, seemingly uneventful but constantly tense, uneasy, and at moments heartwrenching plot, if you're into subtle, slightly blurry photography that reflects the show's main theme (won't give away more here), into overwhelming because subtly understated actor's performances and - last, but not least - into a superb soundtrack full of allusions, this is for you. I guarantee you won't forget this "Homecoming" - ever (yup, another spoiler here)! ^^

    The story started out intriguing, but glacial pacing and inaccessible characters combined with a weak ending made this a two- to two-and-a-half star series at best.

    VERY boring, slow, maybe just not my cup of coffee (since tea sucks). I had a childhood crush on Julia Roberts so I gave this show a good chance. Could barely get through the second episode before moving on to something else. It was horrible.

    Really boring and slow moving, dont waste your time on it. After reading the reviews i thought it would be good, very disapointing.

    A very refreshing television experience. It is masterfully done, each episode gives you so little information, yet so much. The cinematography by Tod Campbell feels otherworldly, grabs you from the moment it starts to the moment it ends. Micah Bloomberg and Eli Horowitz have even greater things to come, and I have to mention Sam Esmail for his amazing job as a Director/Producer for each of the episodes, truly amazing. The ending felt a little strange for me, it didn't feel like the right choice, not entirely, but if they had changed it up a bit, it would have been even better. My grade: A

    Excellent. A mind-bending mystery that is an easy binge with it being 30 minute episodes. Julia Roberts is sensational. A must see!
  • Nov 16, 2020
    This show is absolutely amazing. The thought process behind the filming is top notch. The acting is so amazing and the characters are so well cast. A MUST WATCH!
  • Nov 15, 2020
    Julia Roberts is extraordinary, as always. But the story is already seen, you see any shocking news arriving three episodes in advance
  • Nov 13, 2020
    Powered almost entirely by its lead actors, Homecoming's premise is fascinating and its pacing is addictive. Whether or not the payoff at the end is worth it will depend on the viewer though.
  • Nov 04, 2020
    Underrated by audiences. It's practically flawless.
