The first season is excellent audio storytelling of highest caliber. The second season seems like a freshman college project at best. The first season of Homecoming is phenomenal and I'd recommend it to anyone, if the overall experience wouldn't be so dissatisfying ultimately. The decline in the quality of writing from S01 to S02 is unprecedented - I almost can't believe it's the same two authors. It feels like they really crafted the first season, but had no plan for a second season at all, coming up with content in a rush. Even the great cast can't make up the bad writing of the second season - some roles are definitely miscast as well (Spike Jonze as the CEO of the mighty Gheist corporation sounds like a snotty college kid) I had a hard time finishing it because the story just becomes unbearably ridiculous ( the whole Anthony storyline? Walter's mother somehow getting her hands on top secret tapes and editing them into a fake voice mail?)

love the story, 2nd season is not nearly as good as the first.... but I think what irritates me most is the transition drums....

Really enjoyable! The sound design was incredible and all of the characters were really well developed. Great pacing, too. The end was a little anticlimactic. Everything tied up a little too neatly and we never saw what happened to that rat bastard Colin. Looking forward to more of this! It's like a return to story hour in the radio in the olden days.

The acting in this is wonderful. The use of SFX and background noise is so well made and integrated into the episodes! The cast is incredible and their acting is so immersive! I loved how the plot was slowly revealed to us bit by bit and the revelations and twists are great! The way we can unravel the mysteries surrounding the Homecoming Initiative along with Hydie is so fun and intriguing. At times I’m in the same boat with her! Who to trust but no one? I’m still going through Season 2 but I’m so happy we’re getting into some of the meat of the story. It feels like the production and length of the audios has been stepped up a notch! Awesome job so far.

WHAT HAPPENED!?!?! This was my favorite podcast of all time! Now that godawful second season knocked it down to #3! I sure as hell hope the third season will redeem its self. (In case you were wondering, it is behind Darkest Night (#2) and We're Alive (#1))
