As of 2015 (season one), two figures from real life have appeared as characters: Adolf Hitler and Oberst-Gruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (generally regarded as the heir-apparent to Himmler's command of the SS prior to his assassination in 1942 by Czech resistance operatives trained by British intelligence services). Also, the characters of the crown prince and princess of Japan, while unnamed in the series, appear to be based on the real prince Akihito and princess Michiko. See more »
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 »
This may well be the most suspenseful, riveting, horrifying hour of television I've ever watched. Quietly terrifying with moments that are genuinely difficult to watch. I can't believe how good it is. I can honestly say I was taken by surprise.
Part if the horror is that it's simply inconceivable to us that we could have lost world war 2, but it goes well beyond that. The acting is superb. Everything about this pilot is entirely realistic to the point that the inconceivable becomes all too conceivable. The sense of the characters being one step away from utter disaster is constant and overwhelming.
It's not an easy watch. There's no alleviation from the tension that builds throughout, but you shouldn't let that put you off. It's brilliant. Not only that, it illustrates, more than anything I've seen, just what our grandparents were fighting to prevent. I've never actually bothered to write a review here before, but this is so good, it simply must be seen.
