Trivia

The WWII propaganda posters that mask the external wall of the Sunrise Diner in Canon City are actually covering up the iconic Roslyn Café Mural that has adorned that same wall since the 1990s when Roslyn stood in for Cicely, Alaska in Northern Exposure (1990). See more »

Goofs

The total population of both Germany and Japan in 1940 was actually 5 million people less than the total US population. While the history of the series' universe is different than that of reality, besides the US' manufacturing base exceeding both nations, the population difference would have made their ability to conquer the country an impossibility.

User Reviews

 
Excellent pilot, wonderful atmosphere, high quality production
8 February 2015 | by jackatAUSee all my reviews

Judge by the episode alone, without comparing the detail of the book it base on, it can be said that this show is of top quality, the grim, rusting, stressed and 60s styling photography, the camera angles and choice of equipment used at the time all looked extremely authentic.

That super sonic liner sequence was wonderful, it doesn't feel overly CGI for a TV show at all, then the nazi reception room sequence also shows the production quality in fine details.

It is a spy, psychological story with surreal elements and the show managed to capture that so far.

Any one with know a thing or two about ww2 history or a scifi fan would appreciate the effort spent here to make the world as authentic as possible in a TV budget.

If it was granted more episodes and the production quality remains, then it would easily be short list for the best mini series of 2015!

9/10
