Hopefully, you’ve been having a nice, relaxing, light summer because when fall starts, Amazon will be dropping a new, original series that looks to be quite grim. The series is “The Man in the High Castle” and it has a premise so intriguing, it will be tough to resist the temptation to binge watch. The show is an adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel which takes a look at an alternate history of America and asks the question: what would this country look like if America lost WWII? The novel, as well as this upcoming series, explores a nation that’s divided between Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany and wonders what daily life would be like for Americans ruled by an iron fist.
