Trivia

The man in the Sunshine diner folds an origami unicorn. This is an homage to scene in Blade Runner (1982) (directed by Ridley Scott, producer of this series) which is based on the novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" by Philip K. Dick (author of "The Man in the High Castle"). Furthermore, at the very end of season one there's a prominently displayed billboard for the film Lolita (1962) featuring Sue Lyon who was married to Hampton Fancher, screenwriter of 'Blade Runner'.

Goofs

The series and its source material suggests that area of the United States left to minorities and other "undesirables" is a vast wasteland. In fact, the area shown on the maps in the series contains much of the most fertile land in the US, with Eastern Colorado and portions of Montana having excellent farmland. See more »

So different from the book, but so well done it doesn't matter
25 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I could write a book about the differences between 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep' and 'Blade Runner' but they're minor compared to the differences here. Half the characters of the series are not in the book, likewise most of the plot. However, the series succeeds on its own terms - great acting, cinematography, set and costume design. The new characters are compelling, especially Rufus Sewell's portrayal of Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith. I have a strong feeling Philip K. Dick would have liked this series... And Mr. Tagomi and Juliana are just as I've always imagined them through 6 or 7 readings of the book. Special praise for the music, both the original music and the use of American pop songs throughout (notably Ella Fitzgerald's 'Summertime' at a particularly gruesome point).
