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'.

The post-occupation state refers to itself in all series officially as Great Nazi Reich. In reality Germany of Hitler era never used "Nazi" as an official or unofficial name, because "Nazi" is a pejorative term used by Hitler's opponents. "Nazi" is a short form of name "Ignaz" and is a synonym of "redneck", "village idiot", "low brow". The Hitler party called itself "National Socialist party", and the state was commonly referred to as "German Reich" ("Reich" = "realm", "rule", "empire"). See more »
As a longtime fan of Philip K. Dick's novel, I was definitely interested when I read that Amazon had ordered a pilot. Now that I've seen it, I have to say it exceeded my expectations. The acting is good and the production values are excellent, as the crew did a superb job of bringing to life an alternate 1962 America. But perhaps Frank Spotnitz's greatest success is in his management of the source material, as his script remains pretty faithful to PKD's novel within the parameters of a 1-hour pilot. I would love to see Amazon make this a series, not only to see how Spotnitz and his team adapt the rest of the novel, but also to see where they might take it in seasons to come.
