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 »

beyond impress, stayed up until 2 am on a week day...
23 November 2015 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

I'm a TV show lover, but never! ever! has a series made me want to write a review. It was a cold Sunday evening... I was waiting for Sunday night football around 645pm. I decided to squeeze in the pilot. Needless to say, 7 episodes later I was still watching. The story line is incredible. The acting is great. The emotions that it brought out of me was real and raw. It made me appreciate and think differently about the word/idea/concept that we all throw around "FREEDOM." Yes, it's fictional, and yes it's just a TV-show, but boy! they hit on something, at least in me. I'm beyond impress! Monday morning, coffee to the rescue!
