    Man in the High Castle (2015 Amazon Exclusive, Ridley Scott Producer)



    The Man in the High Castle is an American alternate history television series produced by Amazon Studios. The series is based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. The story is an alternate history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been divided into three parts: The Japanese puppet state of the Pacific States of America, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains; a German puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States; and a neutral zone that acts as a buffer between the two areas, called the Rocky Mountain States.[2]
    The pilot has already been aired and is available on Amazon Prime since January 15. Rest of the season will debut sometime this fall. Going to watch the first episode this weekend and see how it is.

    I enjoyed the first two episodes, plan to finish. I assume everyone is bingeing Jessica Jones first.

    Finished and enjoyed it but it's got very slow pacing, I could see a lot of people disliking or dropping it for that reason.

    Amazon - this is not how you advertise your show:

    With the info ad cards right there it's pretty self explanatory, and looks effective imo. Desperate Twitter users are desperate.

    Without the iron cross, I bet hardly anyone would have even picked up on it. [email protected] one guy admitting to being offended even if they were regular flags.

    Yeah - Amazon has won in getting attention for the show at least, haha.

    "Riders seem to not notice" No, I'm sure they noticed, they just aren't overly sensitive and have places to get to.

    I'm 3 episodes in. I can't wait to get home tonight to watch another 1 or 2 before I have to crash. Definitely a good show. Great production. Solid acting. That there's not more talk about it makes me a little sad.

    Platform and timing. Not as many people have Amazon Prime (or realize that it's also a content service) as Netflix, and it's competing with Jessica Jones.

    See also: Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    You should read Harry Turtledove's books, if you haven't already.

    Just started reading the book Man in the High Castle. It's written in an unusual way, which takes some getting used to, so idk if I like it, yet. However, I will be sure to explain at great length why the book was totally better and why having read the book totally makes me better than all of you, once I get around to watching this.

    I've read the book a few times and it is a strange writing style. I first read this very young and had problems discerning thought and observation. Reading it just a few years later was a completely different book. As for the series, 4 episodes in and watching a few more tonight. Really enjoying it so far.
