Goofs

The total population of both Germany and Japan in the real 1940 was actually 5 million people less than the total US population. Besides the US' manufacturing base exceeding both nations, the population difference would have made their ability to conquer the country exceedingly unlikely. The history of the series' universe is different than that of reality, and takes place in a timeline where this was clearly not an impossibility. See more »

Quotes

Mark Sampson: I don't plan on dying, Frank. But you can't live your life in fear. I was back east at the end of the war, in Boston.
Frank Frink: Oh, Jesus.
Mark Sampson: Yeah. You had to see it to believe it, Frank. Overnight, lynch mobs were murdering Jews because suddenly we were less than human.
Frank Frink: And what did you do?
Mark Sampson: Well, those of us who came out in one piece. We buried service weapons underground, well wrapped in oil, and we vowed revenge. I got a life to lead, got kids to raise. And Hitler and the Nazis - I mean, I don't care how it ...

Seasons 1 and 2 were good, 8-star, but season 3 is not good
8 October 2018 | by ed-26811See all my reviews

The first two seasons were good. Suspenseful, but of course, dystopian. Season 3 so far is not good at all, just mostly a steaming pile. Still dystopian, as expected, but throwing a lot of other junk in there that really doesn't "belong" and only serves to make it as stupid as much of the rest of television these days. I'm being intentionally vague because I don't want to have spoilers in here. If they don't get back in stride, then I'll not be watching any more of this junk.

Update: The 3rd season finally picked up some steam. It's still not as good as seasons 1 and 2, but at least it's watchable after you get past the first few episodes of season 3. I hope it will continue to get better, and that season 4 will be more like seasons 1 and 2. It really shouldn't take 3 - 5 episodes of a 10-episode season to get to the good stuff, writers!
