The Man In The High Castle - Season 1
The Man In The High Castle - Season 1
DVD

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect execution of a very ambitious project., December 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amazing set design and costuming. Visually, it is very convincing (except for the "Colorado" sections, that were covered in ferns and cedars). The storytelling is quite good through about 7 episodes, and then it starts to devolve a bit. The story arc begins to stretch out, and many loose ends are needlessly created. This seems an obvious attempt to set the series up for multiple seasons, and leave viable "outs" for most of the characters as they plan contract negotiations for the actors. All in all, very enjoyable. I would certainly watch a second season. Also, great performance by my former classmate and fellow Michigan alum, Ricky Worthy. Keep up the good work, and Go Blue!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised, November 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really, not too bad. It was certainly better than expected, given the reviews. My wife says that it is quite divergent from the book (pardon the pun), but still enjoyed it.

Really really bad. So bad, it's kinda good. Only if you watch in that spirit, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sleep mode will shut off itself off, whether you want it to or not., December 4, 2014
I very much like the general functionality of the product, but there is one completely unacceptable liability to it. The sleep function will automatically turn itself off in the middle of the night if you move too much. For example, if you get up to use the bathroom, or let the dog out, or tend to your child, it might automatically put you back into "awake" mode. When this happens, you lose all your sleep data from the rest of your night. To be the best of my knowledge, you CANNOT turn this function off. I understand the value of this automatic step: so people won't accidentally stay in sleep mode all day. But if you DON'T want this functionality, it is ridiculous that you cannot de-activate it. I have pets, toddlers, and a small bladder. Tracking my sleep WOULD be a valuable feature, if I could be allowed to use it all night. This needs to be fixed before I would raise my rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paid for it, but can't watch it., February 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I paid to watch this movie, but when I go to play, it only shows the trailer. What's most frustrating, is that it also tells me to BUY it to see the commercial free full movie. I DID BUY IT!!!! Also, the trailer advertises animated and documentary shorts being available on February 25. This is also a lie. It is Feb 25, and Live Action is all that's available. And then, you pay for it but GET NOTHING! For what it is worth, I am try to watch on a Mac computer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works just as advertised, October 3, 2007

Very functional with Senseo. Makes coffee as expected. Delicious. My only wish is that it came in multiple colors, to help identify different coffees that I might chose to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the season I've been wating YEARS for., October 27, 2004
Finally! A great holiday gift for myself. This is the Simpsons at their peak. Seasons 4, 5, and 6 were the prime of this series. There have been great shows since, but this period was consistantly the smartest, funniest, fastest paced era of the Simpsons, and I consider season 5 to be the master piece. In my opinion, 5 of the top 10 episodes of all time, are in this set. The Beatles parady set to early 80's Barbershop quartet. Deep Space Homer's Classic 2001 Homage with the potato chips. Homer improvising dinner for the kids while Marge is out gambling. The Animated Open to "The Tompson" in Cape Fear. And perhaps the greatest episode of all time, The Citizen Cane Parody with "Bobo."
