The Man in the High Castle (2015-?)
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).
This is an alternate universe were the Allies lost, how cool is that? I had a lot of hype when I read the plot synopsis and honestly didn’t think the pilot could live up to it. Surprise, surprise, it did!
There are several stories going on, but by the end of the pilot most were wrapped together nicely. The twist at the end was a surprise and made me want to know what happens next. The fact that I have to wait for Amazon to pick it up and then who knows how long for them to actually get the season ready for release, is kind of sad; but I like being included on this end of things, as a viewer.
I’m excited for the possibility of this show happening. It’s going to need a pretty big budget, but I would actually get my prime membership back to watch it.
