It's great that someone is trying to make long form audio drama, something that we have more of in the UK than I believe is common in the US. The problem is that long form doesn't mean rambling. They seem to have the germ of a good story but don't know how to tell it. It's so rambling, without rounding out characters or moving the story on. You could tell the story of each season so far in 1 paragraph each. Writing is a skill and quality is more important than quantity. The makers of this program need to realise that.
Season 1 is excellent but...
Season 2 is not good. Excellent production values and cast but the writers seem to have forgotten to add any drama to the tedious, repetitive plot. Pointless and disappointing after Season 1 (very much worth listening to)
Really enjoyed it...
I normally can't get in to radio drama style podcasts, but decided to give Homecoming a go - I'm so pleased I did: interesting story, wonderfully acted with first-class production values. The running time for each episode felt just about right too. I look forward to season 2!
