Based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, about a world in which the Axis powers won World War II. Within the novel, "The Grasshopper Lies Heavy" is a banned novel (a novel within the novel) by the man in the high castle, which tells of *another* alternate world in which the Allies won WWII, but *not* the same way as in our world. In the TV series, "The Grasshopper Lies Heavy" is the name given to a series of newsreel films. See more »
The post-occupation state refers to itself in all series officially as Great Nazi Reich. In reality Germany of Hitler era never used "Nazi" as an official or unofficial name, because "Nazi" is a pejorative term used by Hitler's opponents. "Nazi" is a short form of name "Ignaz" and is a synonym of "redneck", "village idiot", "low brow". The Hitler party called itself "National Socialist party", and the state was commonly referred to as "German Reich" ("Reich" = "realm", "rule", "empire"). See more »
I don't plan on dying, Frank. But you can't live your life in fear. I was back east at the end of the war, in Boston.
Yeah. You had to see it to believe it, Frank. Overnight, lynch mobs were murdering Jews because suddenly we were less than human.
And what did you do?
Well, those of us who came out in one piece. We buried service weapons underground, well wrapped in oil, and we vowed revenge. I got a life to lead, got kids to raise. And Hitler and the Nazis - I mean, I don't care how...

This programme has great promise, It could easily become one of the largest shows on TV. Nothing has ever been made to the scale of this show, that depicts what the world would be like (in the 60's) if the Nazis would have won WW2. It is high budget, story and visually driven, combining visuals that rival those of modern films, and a plot which we can only guess at. (unless you have read the book(s)). The acting is very good- for those who don't know the lead actress was in The Chronicles of Riddick, and one of the men "we" meet is from Supernatural. If you like Hunger Games, GoT, Legends, Vikings or any of these shows, you will like this. I highly recommend watching this, to everyone. Watch it!
