Trivia

The man in the Sunshine diner folds an origami unicorn. This is an homage to scene in Blade Runner (1982) (directed by Ridley Scott, producer of this series) which is based on the novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" by Philip K. Dick (author of "The Man in the High Castle"). Furthermore, at the very end of season one there's a prominently displayed billboard for the film Lolita (1962) featuring Sue Lyon who was married to Hampton Fancher, screenwriter of 'Blade Runner'.

Goofs

The series and its source material suggests that area of the United States left to minorities and other "undesirables" is a vast wasteland. In fact, the area shown on the maps in the series contains much of the most fertile land in the US, with Eastern Colorado and portions of Montana having excellent farmland. See more »

Excellent pilot, wonderful atmosphere, high quality production
8 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Judge by the episode alone, without comparing the detail of the book it base on, it can be said that this show is of top quality, the grim, rusting, stressed and 60s styling photography, the camera angles and choice of equipment used at the time all looked extremely authentic.

That super sonic liner sequence was wonderful, it doesn't feel overly CGI for a TV show at all, then the nazi reception room sequence also shows the production quality in fine details.

It is a spy, psychological story with surreal elements and the show managed to capture that so far.

Any one with know a thing or two about ww2 history or a scifi fan would appreciate the effort spent here to make the world as authentic as possible in a TV budget.

If it was granted more episodes and the production quality remains, then it would easily be short list for the best mini series of 2015!

9/10
