Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Canon City, Co is consistently mispronounced as Cannon City while Canon should be pronounced Can-Yun. Due to some obscure typographical reason, the original "Cañon City" became "Canon City" in print -- but Coloradans still pronounce it correctly ("Canyon"). See more »

Quotes

Mark Sampson: 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.
Frank Frink: Oh, Jesus.
Mark Sampson: Yeah. You had to see it to believe it, Frank. Overnight, lynch mobs were murdering Jews because suddenly we were less than human.
Frank Frink: And what did you do?
Mark Sampson: 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...

No need for gratuitous sex, f-bombs, emphasis on homosexual relationships
6 October 2018 | by dpbrick-49339See all my reviews

The concept is very interesting. Most of the show is really well done. It is refreshing that they haven't tried to water down the cruelty of both the Nazi and Japanese regimes. But inevitably, the gay lobby has won out and, sure enough, like most other recent tv-series, the producers introduced the gay card in the most recent season. I was really enjoying the series before this. And no, I certainly don't hate gays, I just feel that tv-series in general tend to overemphasize their numbers. Does it really seem realistic that every series has a homosexual relationship? Especially one set in the 60's in areas controlled by totalitarian regimes?
