I had to smirk a bit when I read the synopsis of this new TV series run out by Amazon Prime, about an alternate history where the Nazis won the war in 1947 and the US became a divided nation with one half Nazi and the other a Japanese outpost.

Fact posing as fiction or the other way around?

Mind you it looks really interesting...
I watched the first episode with my fiancée, who fell asleep. I enjoyed it. So, the review from here is mixed. I'll watch another episode at least.
A Disney children's movie also set about 100 years after the US lost the war.
Philip K. Dick's stories were always reality-bending, are-we-living-in-a-hologram-inside-God's mind stuff, though Man in the High Castle is relatively straightforward.
I'm really looking forward to watching this. I've read about 60%-70% of Philip K. Dick's oeuvre and this is one of his better efforts.
