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 Nazis keep referring to themselves as "Nazis". The real Nazis, like Goebbels, hated the term as it was really an opposition epithet. They always, repeat, always said "National Socialist". See more »
No need for gratuitous sex, f-bombs, emphasis on homosexual relationships
The concept is very interesting. Most of the show is really well done. It is refreshing that they haven't tried to water down the cruelty of both the Nazi and Japanese regimes. But inevitably, the gay lobby has won out and, sure enough, like most other recent tv-series, the producers introduced the gay card in the most recent season. I was really enjoying the series before this. And no, I certainly don't hate gays, I just feel that tv-series in general tend to overemphasize their numbers. Does it really seem realistic that every series has a homosexual relationship? Especially one set in the 60's in areas controlled by totalitarian regimes?
