"Maniac" is an 10-episode limited series streaming on Netfli. According to IMDb:

Two strangers are drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial that will, they're assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.

The miniseries holds a fresh rating of 81 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Some critics argue "Maniac" is in a league of its own. Critic Brian Tallerico wrote:

“Maniac” plays with genre and dramatic expectations to gain insight into the human condition in ways that other programs can’t touch.
#TeamHomecoming

"Homecoming" streams on Amazon Prime Video, and according to IMDb

Good intentions. Erratic bosses. Mounting paranoia. Unforeseen consequences spiraling out of control. Heidi (Julia Roberts) works at Homecoming, a facility helping soldiers transition to civilian life. Years later she has started a new life, when the Department of Defense questions why she left Homecoming. Heidi realizes there's a whole other story behind the one she's been telling herself.

 The podcast turned show is also getting a lot of love with Roberts as the lead, holding a fresh rating of 99 percent on Rotten TomatoesAccording to The Ringer, the show is a win for Amazon:

But like other recent adaptations (Sharp Objects, Big Little Lies), Homecoming adds more than enough to stand on its own and suggests how other audio-to-visual pipeline members might do the same. David Lynch, whose Twin Peaks: The Return obviously inspired the show’s end credits over ambient scenes, has defined cinema as “sound and picture, flowing together through time.” Homecoming already has the sound. Esmail provides the picture.
