It is an Amazon original series. Season 1 was last year.  Second season starts next month.
I have found it to be very entertaining.  
Maybe this series was already involved in a discussion in the past. 
Anybody watching it?

Read the book it is based on. I won't give anything away.

Just watched the first episode.  Read the novel by Philip K. Dick as well as much of his other works a long time ago.  There are so many TV Networks and shows, with new ones popping up all the time that I completely missed that this was being made into a series.


Enjoyed the episode so thanks for starting a thread so I could know it was out there.


The Nazis winning WW2 has always been one of the more fascinating premises postulated in historical fiction and I really enjoyed the novel as well as Fatherland by Robert Harris and others.  No doubt this will lead me to my massive library of books to find it and other works by Dick.  Like I don't already have a ton of things I want to read before I spin off this mortal coil.  So thanks for that as well.:tongue:


Will definitely continue watching.

I am almost done with Season 1.

It is good. Some things are a bit far-fetched, but the plot makes viewers think.

I think they said this was the best-rated Amazon original series.

Rufus Sewell is great in his role as Nazi John Smith. He has that cold/ half crazy stare.

Have done the first four episodes.  Had to rewatch the first as I was talking about to the missus and she decided she wanted to see it.  She may be more hooked than I am but it is very good.


Burn Gorman is creepy as fuck as The Marshall.


With it being an alternate history nothing in terms of story line is really off the table.


Goliath was very good and I am a big Billy Bob Thornton fan.

I also watched the first season of Bosch but haven't checked out season two.  And I've stayed away from Transparent which I've seen rated as the best overall on Amazon though I've seen The Man In The High Castle rated as "Most Popular", if there is a distinction to be made.

Yes, the Marshall is definitely a wild charactar.

The part I found somewhat over the top was the Marshall finding the sketch on a windy bridge.
