Default The Man in the High Castle (Amazon) What if the Nazis won the war?

Based on Philip K. Dick's award-winning novel, and executive produced by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), The Man in the High Castle explores what it would be like if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States. Starring Rufus Sewell (John Adams), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars) and Alexa Davalos (Mob City).

Watch it here -> http://www.amazon.com/Man-High-Castle/dp/B00RSGFRY8/ref=sr_1_1?s=instant-video&ie=UTF8&qid=1421866330&sr=1-1&keywords=man+in+the+high+castle&pebp=1421866343969&peasin=B00RSI5EHQ

Interesting so far, who doesn't love a "what if" story? Sorry for the mega-links, I am not good at internet.
Needs (positive) Amazon reviews before it will put out another episode, I know OT can deliver.

The pilot was filmed in the next town over from me, the same place they filmed Northern Exposure.

I couldn't get pizza one day they were here. It made me mad.


That is all.

Maybe someone would write a stupid book about it and we could ridicule that one too.

I like Phillips k dick novels, but this one was not one of my favorites. It was a struggle to finish, honestly.

I suppose I'll give the show a look though.

Hitler would have no doubt turned on Japan the moment Russia fell, as was his style.

What he said. Somehow I don't think the Japanese fit the profile for "Aryan Race". If the Axis Powers would have won WWII, Hitler would have turned on both Japan and Italy and tried to wipe them out.

Yep, I wouldn't doubt this at all. If Hitler didn't like Slavic peoples, why would he like Orientals?

Edit: I guess NASIOC doesn't do quotes within the quotes anymore.

Ill give you 1 reason he would like the orientals, General Tso's Chicken. But that's the Chinese and not Japanese.

Watching it now, really good!

I'm curious where they are going plot wise with the film reels... Thats a bit of a twist.

I haven't read the book. I think I have it though, so maybe I'll give it a look.

Even if the allies had won the war, the assumption that the Germans could occupy and/or rule the US is a bit of a stretch.

Watched it last night, was definitely well done. For those of you who are complaining about reality, get over it. It is a work of fiction, next you're going to tell me Red Dawn was stupid too.
