Homecoming 2018, 2020 / Julia Roberts' first appearance on TV is a moody and dark sci-fi drama and very good


Julia Roberts first small-screen role is that of Heidi Bergman, a woman working as a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a facility that helps war veterans return to civilian life. Her boss Colin Belfast, superbly played by Bobby Cannavale, is a busy and eager man with questionable motives. Four years on, Bergman no longer works for the mysterious facility, when a visitor forces her to confront what she has been telling herself about her past.

Created by Sam Esmail, who also brought you Mr. Robot, this is mysterious sci-fi at its best. A haunting vibe, heart-stopping cinematography, and a slew of stellar supporting actors like Shea Whigham and Stephan Janes make Homecoming a gripping and breathtaking experience. With each episode clocking in at about 30 minutes, you will frequently be left hungry for more.

    Dull, pointless, no plot line, and after 3 episodes I was wondering if I could gut through the rest of the tripe. I said no and quit. Did i mention it is dull, pointless and lacked a plot line. The only cool part is this actress who pretends to be a frumpy version of Julia Roberts. -1 people liked this review.
