Man in the High Castle

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Man in the High Castle

Postby Ned Flanders » Mon Nov 26, 2018 4:31 pm

Just started watching this. Crazy premise, but they're usually able to pull it off. Rufus Sewell, who play American-turned-Nazi SS Obergruppenführer John Smith is especially evil.


Bonus: Opening credits feature the creepiest version of Edelweiss imaginable.

I read a lot of Philip K. Dick in the '60s. If the show is as good as the book, I would like to see it.

They claim the series is loosely based on the book Hank.

yes, i noticed that . . . the song is usually associated with austria, not germany -- are they trying to imply something?

Maybe because Der Fuhrer was Austrian.

but the thing is about the entire axis winning and even japan running a section of north america out of san francisco -- why not "i think i'm turning japanese" or "whip it"?
