Trivia

When Sam Esmail asked his "Mr. Robot" production designer, Anastasia White, to come aboard "Homecoming," she purposely tried not to visualize the story when she first listened to the podcast version. She thought it would be a fun challenge to visualize a story that originally used audio to set its tone. See more »

Homecoming

Esmail's brisky sci-fi thriller is more mysterious than smarter it attains to be. It is a breath of fresh air is what it is. From breaking down the barriers on the relationship among characters to the perspective that keeps changing and which helps makers start the clock from zero every time. It is smartly constructed, if the material is familiar, and it is that structure that glosses over the series. Not only the season, but each episode ends on a mellow note that is soothing and works as a healer to all the wiped out objects by the storm in that episode.

The narration; despite of shifting from one timeline to another, couldn't be more simple, its non-linear storytelling is justified and so is the way it is shot. It keeps you busy and tangled in its mysterious bubble with tiny notions and hints that the entire frame is brimmed with; even the quacks and an obsession over little things. The conversations are pragmatic and written with such flamboyancy that it is a character in itself. The way someone argues or talk on a phone or fumbles in an interview or attempts fatally to hide something, on each steps, Esmail has delivered unflinchingly and his awareness is what makes it a near perfect series.

Roberts is in her A game. Her character might not have given much range to flaunt in, but she is giving her all in and there are times where she has to and she does carry all the work in her shoulder especially in the last act, which cannot not melt you down; it is a real tearjerker. Esmail's vision is crystal clear and he isn't distracted on any of the step; it is finely edited.

Season 01

A firm head start with cunning and sharp narration that is so aware of its characters and the world they revolve around it, that even its error and omission method, works brilliantly especially when the makers changes the point of view; a well crafted act.

Toys

The recipe just got spicy, the dish served in here keeps you busy and competent on taste, texture, colour and your appetite, it is a perfectly cooked formula that fiddles with characters by jumbling and gambling them like a pro.
