The Man in the High Castle Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

5 second plot: The USA has lost WWII and the Germans and Japanese have divided the good old country in two. It's not a very nice place to live and of course there are resistance groups on both sides. From both sides two newbies to the cause go to a place in the neutral zone. They don't yet know what they'll have to do but they'll figure it out when they get there. So they think.

5 second review: The concept is great and the production design is too, but this first episode just didn't cut it for me. It did not spark my interest at all. I don't feel like there is a need for more ass-hole Nazi's on the screen.

IMDb score: 8,3/10
