    Roberts helps set up Homecoming as a creepy, fun thriller and a gripping, human drama.

    Homecoming is a visually dazzling thriller that plays on memory, the military industrial complex, conspiracy and unchecked government privilege to immediately set the hook as an intriguing, ambitious work of television.

    It takes a few episodes for Homecoming to start showing its cards, and the focus is on unspooling the mystery rather than building the characters, so emotional depth is sometimes sacrificed in order to keep the narrative freight train chugging along. But it is an awfully good mystery, after all, with each episode lasting just long enough and teasing us just enough to keep us hooked.

    The story, told in half-hour chunks, is a finely calibrated paranoid mystery. ... The atmosphere is foreboding and the story unfolds with confidence, thanks to the smart direction of Mr. “Mr. Robot,” Sam Esmail.

    Sharp slices of truly eerie drama. Even when it gets a little too mesmerized by its own stylistic trickery, it’s hard not to get sucked in by Homecoming’s haunting mission creep.

    Sam Esmail does what he can to make the show visually compelling -- and he does a lot -- but it still feels like something is getting lost in translation.

    Though the episodes only run a half-hour each, Homecoming moves at a glacial pace. It finds its groove about four episodes in, and then loses it again.
