Trivia

On 24 November 2015, shortly after a full series of episodes became available via Amazon streaming video, advertising posters in the New York City subway system caused an outcry because of their display of the Nazi reichsadler. The governor of New York himself called for the removal of the posters, which was quickly done. See more »

User Reviews

 
An amazing adaptation of the novel!
29 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pilot episode was exceptional. It held my attention and made me believe in such an alternate history.

I have read the book, and although it is different, it is an incredible adaptation. If the book was turned into a show without any edits, it would be far too complicated and very hard to enjoy (although the book is incredible).

The acting, story, and visuals are spot on and only intensified what I had imagined when I read the book. When I first read the book, I had hoped for a movie to be made from it, but a show will be a much better pace for such an though-provoking and intelligent story.

I want more episodes!!
