I'm writing this based only on the pilot, but OMG! There are Nazis and the Imperial Japanese, and they occupy America. This actually gives us a perspective on ourselves. In the show, the Nazis torture people, and the Japs invade someone's home, calling it a matter of "national security". In our reality, the CIA tortures people, and the NSA invades our homes, calling it a matter of "national security". It's not simply a matter of an alternate reality. There is an object from our reality in theirs. That moves the show from pure fiction to science fiction. Our reality affects theirs. Does theirs affect ours? Set in past, but not our past, the show requires a lot of careful details in the shots. The San Francisco skyline is an old one, and yet there are modifications for the increased Japanese influence. The show is dense, and I found myself rewinding multiple times. One example is the origami unicorn. This was very significant in the movie Blade Runner (director's cut), and I'm guessing it is here too. Blade Runner is a movie that is like great literature, and I've always wanted a TV show that is like great literature, so maybe the Man in the High Castle is it! Thank you Philip K. Dick!

I got only one word for the 1st 2 episodes: Masterpiece.

Nazis. Nuff said. Didn't know the book but expecting the adaptation to be good because the idea is fantastic.

Watching a great series finale is akin to saying good-bye to an old friend. So, as I write my final review of this stellar series, I'm feeling a little blue. But, let me walk you through my experience watching this series, which is now setting records as one of the longest continuing series by Amazon Prime. Season One - (1 August 2017) This is my present binge watch, and I'm enjoying it. This series is based on a book by Philip K. Dick (author of BLADE RUNNER, TOTAL RECALL, THE MINORITY REPORT, THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU). This series is a blend of genres, so there is a little of something for everyone. It is a period piece (with an anomalous mystery), a SciFi other-world creation, a thriller and a drama. So, just relax, suspend belief and follow the writer's breadcrumbs. It's a great ride. The cast is great. The story arch is compelling. There are some stand-out performances, but basically, it is a great ensemble piece. My ratings for the episodes went from a 7 (good) to an 8 (great) to a 9 (superb), and the season finale was a solid, "WHAT!" The series was now a 10 (WOW) out of 10. Season 2 (4 August 2017) This season's story backtracked allowing the audience to recalibrate, but then, quickly, drew us back in to its thrilling pace. It continued to give us superb storytelling, engaging performances, dynamic character building, depth of production and the season finale was breathtaking, and I have nothing but high praise for this series - a solid 10 (brilliant) out of 10. Season 3 (7 December 2018) Already on my TOP TV SERIES list, my only concern is that, for the whole series, we are waiting for the big reveal of how this universe works, and each season this reveal is delayed - how long can we defer resolve? An additional challenge of this season was to maintain the mystery without violating the original premise. There were interesting new characters, great storytelling and interesting challenges left for season 4. My rating for this series is still a 10 (well done) out of 10. Season 4 (11 December 2019) I knew this was to be its last season, so, I began it with a bitter-sweet anticipation. Of course, it was following up on a cliff-hanger from the season before. There were some major character losses, none quite so jarring as the first one. (I felt like we had been robbed.) Although the finale left more questions unanswered, I knew that any finale would have left me longing for more. This was a wonderfully conceived premise, superb storytelling, a fantastic cast giving us enduring characters, timely existential questions and moral repercussions. This is TV at its best, 10 out of 10, all the way and I will miss it (and probably rewatch it, every 4 years, or so). [SciFi, Period, Mystery, Drama]

I'm afraid the masterpiece that is this show will get swallowed up in the "NAZIS NAZIS NAZIS!!!" nonsense. I feel like one should describe this show as delicately as they may place a brush with paint against a bullet ridden wall. Gazing beyond it's stunningly beautiful luster one finds fragile yet not delicate intimacy between every character. You feel yourself deep inside every single person. You feel the sex appeal and the stability of a sleek Nazi. You're scared shitless of the world exploding right before your very eyes. You'll go down with your compatriots waving whatever you want to call this flag of togetherness and unity. This is no mere thought experiment. This is daring you to *fuck* with the Nazis. This is daring you to touch yourself like they touched the Germans. It's no mere conflict or simple rage or lust. It's the darkest secret you can hold, and if you can bare to watch it unfold in its myriad ways. This series will churn you out, if you let it.

This show is a real jewel!

I'm really impatient of watching this show when it finally gets released. The pilot was very promising and i thought it did captured quite well he spirit of the Philip K. Dick's book.

In season 2 you get angry, but then you understand Julie's actions and start liking the serie.

Season 1 had me absolutely captivated and obsessed with this world. Season 2 was also pretty good, but everything started going downhill when they started introducing unneeded side plots and characters. Season 3 was just a mess, and season 4 was just empty and *boring*. I sincerely believe the downfall of this show began when they veered away from the character's internal struggles (and the introduction of the sci-fi elements didn't help either). That's why season 1 was the best, because everyone was being torn up inside trying to survive and make decisions they could live with in an unforgiving, ruthless world. [spoiler]Then the Smiths allowed their son to be murdered and Julianna killed Joe even though she *knew* he'd been brainwashed by the Nazi's. She'd risked her life for him S01, because she knew deep down he was a good guy in an impossible position, and then did a 180 an decided he was unredeemable (it made no sense and I'm still very pissed about it).[/spoiler] And, suddenly, there was no more internal struggles. Everyone was either good or evil and there were no more grey zones. A show like this one, where the human spirit is at the center of it all, thrives in the grey zone. That muddled area where bad things are done for good reasons, and viceversa. Where you empathize with the antihero. Where survival and morality are at constantly at odds. Where you struggle with deciding what *you* would do if you found yourself in that situation. We had a good thing going, and it got thoroughly ruined. Another series to chuck in the ==disappointing== pile.

I recommend to everyone I know to watch this piece of tv art!
