The Man in the High Castle

Post by Merk » Mon Nov 23, 2015 3:52 pm

Is anyone watching this show? It's not very good and I'd like to talk about it and why I don't like it.

It's an Amazon Prime exclusive so obviously you'll need Amazon Prime to watch it. You can't share Amazon Prime TV with friends and family so you have to be a real ass Amazon Prime subscriber in order to watch.

Are you using some kind of reverse psychology to trick us into enjoying it because you think that we think that you have bad taste, or is my theory an alternate history version of this post where you actually thought it was a good show?
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

No. I'm being genuine when I say it's not a good show.

I thought it *could* have been a good show and I thought that a high production value episodic interpretation of the "Nazis won" cliche could have been cool but no it's not a good show.

This sadly doesn't surprise me as almost all attempts to do films or TV Shows based upon the works of Phillip K. Dick tend to fall flat quickly. (Blade Runner's Director's Cut/Final Cut is one of the better realized ones, but not perfect.) All the show does is make me want to watch the Director's Cut of Iron Sky instead.

Man Philip K. Dick is awesome. Ever heard of The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch? Nope? Okay.
