We recently watched the pilot episode of this new show, which is produced by Amazon. We've been on a bit of an Amazon streaming kick lately, first watching the entire season 1 of Transparent (another show I highly recommend!), and now in the midst of the FX show The Americans, which is available through Amazon Prime.
My boyfriend suggested we watch The Man in the High Castle last weekend, as he's a huge Phillip K. Dick fan, and this show is inspired by his award-winning novel. Some of the plot is already different than the book, but it's based in the same world: an alternate universe in which the Nazis and Japanese won WWII. The show starts off in 1962 in Nazi-controlled New York City. We then switch back and forth between that storyline and the storyline of a girl living in Japanese-controlled San Francisco. (In this world, the two Axis powers split up the United States after the world, and the Rocky Mountains make up the dividing line, with a neutral zone in between.)
In the hour-long pilot episode there was plenty of excitement and suspense, with a plot twist that has us itching to see the rest of the episodes they have planned. You'll have to watch and then give your feedback to Amazon if you like it too... They'll produce more episodes only if enough people want to see more. Check it out - you won't be sorry!
