Surprise Homecoming (2011)
Good Premise, Poorly Executed
Usually I enjoy a good tear jerker, and soldiers surprising loved ones should hit the mark. But Billy Ray Virus as a host kills it, as does the production. Very poorly thought out plans, surprises and unless you are a member of the family or friend being surprised it falls flat.
If anything, they should do a more in-depth character study, build up what the families have been through, build up some suspense..anything but at the end of the day, we don't get to know the families well enough to really care about the "homecoming"
They need a better formula than:
See soldier come home, see family cry, lather rinse repeat.
Revamp the show and get rid of the host. This isn't supposed to be about Billy Ray.
