The Man in the High Castle: That's Oberst-Gruppenführer Smith To You  Show Only   Season 3, Ep 0

Based on the discussions here of the first and second seasons, let's just dispense with the notion the third season of the series has anything to do with the book, shall we? Season two ended with some surprises and some things that were sort of inevitable with the arc of the story … [more inside]

The Man in the High Castle: I do believe my father wants what’s best, but this can’t be the way.  Books Included   Season 2, Ep 0

We continue to move far from the plot of the book, keeping only the Ally loss, a trifurcated America, and some surnames, but the exploration of alternate timelines, racial complexities, and genetic impurity grows increasingly complex in a delightfully Dicksonian fashion.

The Man in the High Castle: The New World  Season 1, Ep 1

Amazon Pilot (2015): An adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel, this one-hour show drops the viewer into an alternate world where Germany and Japan have won WWII and partitioned the U.S. A man named Joe joins the resistance in Nazi-controlled New York and sets off in a truck for the neutral zone, a DMZ in the Rockies between the two sides, which seem to be in a state of fragile detente. In Japanese-held San Francisco, a woman chances onto a reel of film that sends her also toward Canon City, Colorado.

The Man in the High Castle?

It's just a pilot on Amazon at the moment, but an ambitious adaptation of a Philip K. Dick novel seems like our kind of thing, yeah?
