Dick's award-winning novel, The Man in the High Castle explores what it would be like if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States. Amazon.com: The Man in the High Castle [HD]:AmazonInstant Video This flew totally under the radar for me, even though I'm familiar with the Philip K Dick novel of the same name.Amazonjust released their new line of show pilots and this was one of them. As a background, the book is essentially an alternate history/reality novel in which the main story takes place in the 1960s, but one in which Germany and Japan won WW2 (think Wolfenstein: The New Order). The US is basically split between the two nations, with Germany controlling most of it. However, relations between Germany and Japan aren't the strongest, especially with Hitler rumored to be in very poor health. While some of the CGI was a little iffy in a few spots, overall it was a really solid pilot and made me want to see the rest of the series. If you have anAmazonPrime sub, it is worth checking out, especially if you love "what if?" historical scenarios.
