Trivia

Extensive research was done for the cultures, particularly areas such as costuming, technology, and music, to develop an alternate world which merges aspects of WWII Nazi and Imperial Japanese cultures with the cultural progress of mid-1950s America. Although the series is set in 1962, the use of the 1950s for many touchstones suggests the cultural stagnation that would have occurred under totalitarian occupation. See more »

Goofs

The Mediterranean Sea is said to be "drained" in this story and its land converted to farmland. Besides being a salty sea and thus unusable for farming for decades or even centuries, the deepest part of the sea is over 17,000 feet making impossible for this to be done, even using 21st century technology.

Quotes

Joe Blake: [noticing ashes falling like snowflakes] What is that?
Nazi Police Officer: Oh, that's the hospital.
Joe Blake: The hospital?
Nazi Police Officer: Yeah, Tuesdays, they burn cripples, the terminally ill. Drag on the state.

Excellent - it's far the most promising pilot of all pitched for 2015
16 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm a big PKD as well as Ridley Scott fan so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it on my Prime home page... and the pilot has vastly exceeded my expectations! It is visually impeccable, great cinematography and CG and art direction, script is pretty close to the original book, excellent pacing, very good acting... characters at this point are not too deep but this is a one-hour pilot, it supposed to tease us, not reveal everything, let alone (correctly) focusing on story development right now, not character development (which inherently requires a few episodes.) Excellent job, this MUST be continued, Amazon! =)
