I'm doing a first watch on this series on Prime.  It's an interesting premise about an alternate reality where Germany developed the Nuke and the Axis powers won WW2.  It's set in the 60's and shows the US  as being ruled by Japan in the west and Germany in the East, and the Rockies are a neutral zone. There's distrust between Germany and Japan and it looks like there's a conspiracy brewing to start a war between the two powers.

I'm about three quarters of the way through the first season.  The first half of the season was a little sketchy and sometimes silly - "the Marshal", for example,  but it seems to be picking up.  They haven't revealed "TMITHC" yet and I'm curious to see who he is and the mystery of the films, and maybe continue on to S2 if it continues to improve.

Loved, loved, loved, this one MrBill! yay scrd

And you're right, the alternate outcome to WWII is the most interesting thing about the whole series.

Something else that was very interesting was how some of the Americans bought into the Axis powers, and even joined the SS.

I finished seasons 1 and 2, but didn't/haven't watched the next one.

By all means, post your thoughts while watching S1, I'll comment.

Yeah, After 20 years it's a fascist and racist controlled society and the only way people get jobs and survive is to play their game.  There doesn't seem to be much of an organized resistance.  They haven't really mentioned Europe or the rest of the world to see how far the Axis empires extend.   I'm actually expecting some time travel component to set things straight. Or maybe it was just a giant Transporter malfunction that put the world into the "Mirror Universe". 55

For one thing, though, Frank Frink. How are you going to name a character that. I instantly started calling him Frankenfrinker in my head and I still do.

And, Kido's glasses are the best thing in the entire show. i <3 Kido.

Frank Frink.   I felt sorry for him for the torture he endured and his loss and I understand his anger issues, but the way he treats other people in mid-season 1,  someone really needs to punch him in the face, lol.    The Marshal of Canon city is another character.   Without his shotgun, I think he would just blow over since that was apparently his "superpower".  Juliana could have easily kicked his ass.   So why didn't they take his shotgun away when they knocked him out?  lol. I guess he could have an arsenal stashed away somewhere and he is a high ranking Nazi officer who has apparently seen too many westerns.

Season 3 was the best Jerry... THE BEST!

S1 was a little uneven and I really had to work to stay with it. S2 things became more cohesive and I really started grasping where they were going.

S3... just finished. To me this season was a slam dunk. 

I won't discuss it yet because... 



bit it was really solid
