Critic Reviews for Homefront Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

Soon Homefront will have run through all its returning-from-the-war story lines, leaving only a tepid soap opera set in the '40s.

The show was as entertaining as anything on TV, while at the same time tackling issues like racism and early feminism and unionism, all without preaching. And it handled religion in an upfront, sensitive and realistic way.

Homefront" is a bit like a beautifully decorated cake -- it looks wonderful, the icing is terrific, but once you bite into the thing, you realize it's really just a plain yellow cake.

This soap is clearly eager to get down to nasty business.

The pilot has a good script, super cast and terrific soundtrack of wartime tunes

As a period drama, this series can't approach the subtlety of I'll Fly Away, but as the weeks go by, the soapy appeal of Homefront gets stronger all the time.

Jun 18, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The large crowd of unknown actors pretty and handsome, their characters fairly interesting, and the era evoked rather neatly. But the dialogue is stiff and the subplots pedestrian. It`s all quite forgettable.

Homefront" is a rich, well-directed piece, full of character and emotion and driven by fine performances.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Homefront is a slick, satisfyingly busy soap opera.
