Homecoming | 2018 In Review

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) kick off a special series of 2018 in review podcasts, looking back at some of the year’s most notable shows, beginning with Amazon’s Homecoming.
Directed by Sam Esmail and starring Julia Roberts, the streaming service’s conspiratorial thriller is an adaptation of a podcast of the same name, focusing on therapist Heidi Bergman (Roberts) and war veteran Walter Cruz (Stephan James). Josh and Antonio give a spoiler-free overview of the series before digging into all the various plot strands from the 10-episode season.

    I really loved this show, haven’t listened to the podcast. One thing I couldn’t figure out by watching was who actually filed the complaint that Carrasco was investigating? The only ones that would make sense to me were either Walter’s mother or Shrier. Wondering if that was known in the story line and I just missed it.

      Just got done watching few days ago. I believe it was Walter’s mother who made an anonymous complaint call.

    As I said to you guys on Twitter, I mostly agreed and somewhat disagreed. Still, I liked the show and think it doesn’t need a second season. But if they are going to do one, it should probably follow a soldier, or group of redeployed soldiers whose “cure” begins to deteriorate. We could then follow them (or the one) back home where they are struggling to find an answer… or have been arrested for a crime in-country. This way, you wouldn’t need to bring the stars of season 1 in until later in the season, if at all.
