I want to ensure I’m using this term correctly if reviewing episodes of TV shows or movies.

I would use them in a similar way but I’m interested to see the responses.

I would probably use pastiche if the influence is more obvious and homage if the influence is more abstract. But again, who the hell am I?

Pastiche apes the style and is more generalised than an homage which tends to be more overt, like a retelling.

V for Vendetta pays homage to 1984.

Stranger Things is a pastiche of 80’s film and tv.
