Trivia

Amazon's television development practice is to produce promising pilot episodes, put them on the web for free streaming, gather audience feedback, and then pick up the series that get a positive response. The pilot for this series debuted on January 15, 2015 and was Amazon's "most-watched since the original series development program began." On February 18, 2015, the series was picked up for a ten-episode season. The remaining nine episodes were released November 20, 2015. See more »

Goofs

The series and its source material suggests that area of the United States left to minorities and other "undesirables" is a vast wasteland. In fact, the area shown on the maps in the series contains much of the most fertile land in the US, with Eastern Colorado and portions of Montana having excellent farmland. See more »

A must watch, absolutely amazing!
15 January 2015 | by (Norwich) – See all my reviews

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!
