What To Watch On Amazon Prime That’s New This Week

Category: Entertainment,TV

Streamline recommends “Homecoming” for Amazon Prime this week. Amazon added this new Original on Nov. 2.

Premise: An adaptation of the Gimlet podcast of the same name. An experimental trial to help veterans adjust to life back home goes awry and a web of mysteries slowly reveals itself.

How excited should you be? Extremely. This might be Amazon’s best Original show so far in 2018. The show has an incredibly binge-worthy format with smart writing and fantastic acting performances. Julia Roberts stars in this thing, for Christ’s sake. 

Any reasons to be skeptical? If you loved the podcast, don’t expect this to follow the exact narrative of that project. This stands on its own creatively.

Will everyone be talking about this? I think this could become a real hit. Roberts’ star power alone makes this conversation-worthy, but the show also deserves all that attention.

Check out the trailer for the first season of “Homecoming” below.
