Homecoming: Season 1 Reviews

Page 1 of 5
December 17, 2018
Homecoming is an exercise in postmodern pastiche that seems to have forgotten to have much of a story.
October 22, 2018
Despite a star-studded cast and some visually creative flourishes, Amazon's glacially-paced podcast adaptation is less of a thriller and more of a sleep aid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 14, 2018
Homecoming is straightforward and completely bingeable; the 10 thirty-minute episodes fly by, always making you want more when the "Directed by Sam Esmail" text pops up at the end.
November 7, 2018
The risk pays off. "Homecoming" lights up the screen as a TV series and provides a quick, thrilling binge.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
November 1, 2018
With a great deal of style and substance, Homecoming is a classic conspiracy thriller in the mold of Hitchcock, thrillingly updated for 2018.

November 5, 2018
Wisely paced and structured, "Homecoming" is an engaging thriller delivered with a classic style. You can process it in adequate doses because Esmail wants to tell a good story and knows bloated episodes dent the effect.
November 26, 2018
This new series will keep you interested, asking, "What really happened?"
November 1, 2018
Homecoming plays on the ideas of memory, the military industrial complex and unchecked government privilege to create a visually stunning thriller that feels positively Hichcockian in its slowly unfurling mystery.

November 21, 2018
The show is good, is what I'm telling you, and Roberts has a major hand in keeping it so consistently satisfying.
November 12, 2018
It is an interesting premise that calls out corporations and politics for putting profit above humanity, but it isn't awe-inspiringly original.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
October 22, 2018
While Esmail's directorial choices may, at times, be too much, Homecoming is a fascinating series and the best performance by Julia Roberts in years.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 22, 2018
This may not be a traditional horror story, but Homecoming is a top notch drama that will fill you with dread and unease and you will love every second of it.

November 12, 2018
With Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail directing, the show has a distinct visual style that sits perfectly with the tense, paranoid mood of the show... Roberts is predictably outstanding as the idealistic Bergman.
December 18, 2018
It's an interesting and unsettling re-structuring of the detective drama, and it adds to the visual and aural onslaught from Esmail and co, who are pulling the strings to engage the viewer even when the story lulls.
November 2, 2018
Homecoming's thrills feel contemporary, yet distinct enough to stand apart in the morass of television that's readily available to binge. And if Amazon needs a show to gain some momentary cultural clout, Homecoming is an excellent bet.
November 2, 2018
Homecoming has too many strengths - and is a story too strikingly told - for its flaws to find real purchase.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
November 28, 2018
Homecoming loads an impressive amount of twisty psychological drama into a half-hour. There are so many hints, cinematic references, clues, red herrings and "easter eggs," it would take multiple viewings to catch them all.
October 30, 2018
It's a sleek, mesmerizing conspiracy thriller from Mr. Robot maestro Sam Esmail that is a throwback to classic thrillers and one of the most intriguing new series of the year.
November 8, 2018
It's the most gripping series I've watched all year, and it relies on character and humanity for its hooks and twists rather than flashy action or violence.
November 5, 2018
Ostensibly, Homecoming might appear uneventful and slow but it's deliberately and skillfully languid, ratcheting up tension with purpose and ease.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
