The series is set in an alternate history in which Germany and Japan won World War II by the murder of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933. It revolves around SS undercover agent Joe Blake, the Jewish Frank Frink and his ex Juliana Crain, who in San Francisco gets a film role from her dying sister in which the Allies win the war, albeit only in 1947. Juliana wants to take that subversive film to the underground resistance in Colorado, but finds herself involved in a complex game of spies, double spies and triple spies around SS. leader Heydrich, the old Hitler, the Japanese secret police Kempeitai and the Japanese crown prince, who visits California.

The Man in the High Castle season 1

Across all 4 seasons...
I haven't read the book, which may work in favor of this series. Distinctive and captivating story in which no expense has been spared in the execution. Almost all genres can be found here: thriller, drama, war, mystery, science fiction. Great cast where I like Chelah Horsdal (as Helen) the most. A downside of this series is the sudden disappearance of a number of characters; like they needed to be written out. Something similar with the caption on the movies "The Grasshopper Lies Heavy"; seen regularly in the beginning and disappeared at some point. The ending was open to multiple interpretations, but it was a good conclusion.

The Man in the High Castle season 1

Thanks to a free 3-month subscription to Prime, a second jewel was found after Fall out.
I think the idea behind the story is original. How differently things could have turned out if Hitler and Japan had won the war. The fact that the battleground is now the American continent makes sense to pit Nazi Germany and Japan against each other. I think the neutral zone is a shame.
The acting is okay. German and Japanese are even spoken.
Sometimes too many coincidences. But that keeps the momentum going.
I'm curious about the next series.

The Man in the High Castle season 1

This could have been an interesting series if the screenwriters had stuck more to the original book, but by setting their own course they gradually commit themselves, resulting in one of the most ridiculous season finales ever. If there is a second season, the gentlemen have a lot to explain. Furthermore, the series is very slow and could have used a little more action or suspense here and there.
