Not only this is a beautiful and well done pilot, but it's super engaging and quite a great homage to the book. I can't wait to see more. The script is great, the photography is breathtaking and the performances incredibly solid for actors that are in the process of finding these characters. Order more!

Like BLADE RUNNER adapted from PKD's DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP, Amazon's MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE may not be a direct adaptation of Philip K. Dick's Hugo winning novel [such as the recent RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH] but it captures the essential themes and alternate timeline of the book. The acting, production values, and attention to world-shaping details are impeccable. I can understand transforming THE GRASSHOPPER LIES HEAVY from a book to a reel of film for today's not-so-book-centrist younger audience. I can understand that its message is condensed to the length of a POPEYE cartoon so that it's easy to conceal. [Perhaps all of the smuggled reels will be combined into a feature length print at their destination.] Since it is set in 1962 there are no thumb drives or pocket readers, but a book would be easier to conceal and easier to share in private without needing to know how to thread a projector requiring electricity.
Other than this one quibble, I watched Episode 1 when it came out and shared its arrival with friends. I've repeated the action with Episode 2. I even dented my fixed income in order to afford Amazon Prime solely that I may watch streaming Season 1 [of hopefully several] upon its arrival.

Fantastic pilot. As a history buff but someone with no prior knowledge of the source material, I found it a fascinating "alternate history" and am very curious to see where exactly the story goes. The acting and production were both of high values and made it a pleasant viewing experience. While I'm sure having read the book may improve the experience, I found myself very engaged in the story regardless. Please commission this as a full time series.

This show is the prime example of something daring, something that most TV networks would reject and instead go for another meandering cop drama. It is imaginative and emotionally captivating.

This show is superior to all the other pilots! The other pilots are inferior!

Verdict: A slow burn of a suspense thriller series, has some definite possibilities and looks very promising. I like the fitting use of German and Japanese languages as appropriate, and without subtitles which adds to the suspense if you don't know either. I would be very interested to see how this plays out and would definitely watch a season or two of this based solely off this pilot without any knowledge of PKD's book. If you like a side of dystopian misadventures flavored with a bit of George Orwell, check this series out!

PROs:
+Nice soundtrack that fits the atmosphere of the series and really adds to the environment of the series.
+Intriguing dystopia plot premise of an alternate past end to WWII that is very believable, creative, and a nice departure from all the teenage dystopias running rampant right now (hunger games, divergent, maze runner, etc.)
+Good time-piece clothing, including the clichéd Asian hats (particularly the Indiana Jones villain hat!)
+Very detailed and meticulous background writing and setting, giving nuance and life to an otherwise stale time.
+Decent use of filters for cinematography, giving a suitable feeling for the period but might venture into overuse at times.
++Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa - I love this guy, have loved him since Mortal Kombat, and seeing his face in a production always brings a smile to my face! (Plus, someone of Japanese descent actually PLAYING a Japanese character!)
+Another Indiana Jones throwback in showing a map of the journey while traveling, something that is just plain cool to see the actual route someone took.

Beautifully & respectfully done. Well-acted and designed. (Being from Seattle, it was also fun seeing Seattle artfully and believably "costumed" into San Francisco and New York (both cities that I also know well). Intriguing set-up for future episodes and definitely want to see more. Bravo!

I was very impressed with this pilot. The acting was good, the sets were good, the costumes and props were appropriate. The setting and mood were top notch. Before the pilot was done I had a feel for an American culture that was strongly repressed but stubbornly hanging on. Unfortunately there was a heavy dependence on dark and shadowy sets during dramatic scenes.

After a few weak appearances by "secret police" (no one expects the Spanish Inquisition!) I was worried that the writers had shied away from the brutality of Nazi/Japanese rule. That was until an Audubon Patrolman casually noted that some ash fall was from the local hospital where the handicapped and terminally ill were being incinerated. I look forward to seeing how far they're willing to go down that dark road.

None of the characters were particularly complex, and some were borderline cliche, but most had room for development.

I have high hopes for this show. Science fiction is too often overlooked and this pilot has serious potential.
