Binge watching streaming series is as common a practice nowadays as tuning into a favored weekly radio show was for people not even 2 to 3 decades ago. Finding something to watch on your favorite streaming service isn’t hard either. The more difficult task may be deciding what NOT to watch. With a plethora of choices no more than a button push away, it’s no wonder why we go on “binge” watching benders. No need to wait for next week; I can watch the next one now.
With so many options available it is often times hard for any one show to stand out above the rest. Recently, I have become ridiculously attached to shows such as; Game of Thrones, The Flash and a few other oddball superhero shows. It wasn’t until just recently, however, that I discovered a new one that has quickly grabbed hold of my attention; The Man in the High Castle.
Where To Find The Man in the High Castle
Sadly, I knocked out both available seasons of The Man in the High Castle as soon as we purchased Amazon Prime this year. It took me about two weeks to watch both 10-episode seasons. That being said, Amazon is the only place that you can see The Man in the High Castle. It does come with your Amazon Prime membership though. So if you already have it, you might as well use it.
What’s It About?
Basically the whole show revolves around a few central characters that live in a world that would have existed had the Japanese and Nazi powers won World War II. The story is very loosely based on a novel that was written back in the 1960s of the same name, by Philip K. Dick.
I won’t give you anymore information than that so I don’t spoil anything for you.
Why Watch It?
It’s different. There are a lot of cookie cutter shows out there and you undoubtedly already know this. One thing that will usually bring my viewing duration to a quick halt is bad acting. That is far from the case in this show. The acting is beyond on-par, the visuals are amazing and the way that they tie in some historical bits is done very, very well.
Give It A Try!
The Man in the High Castle might not be a show for everyone, but it is definitely worth checking out. If you can get past the Nazi references, blatant racism (which would have been a common thing for sure) and crudeness of the times; you will probably find the show quite enjoyable.
If you should give it a chance. Let me know in the comments what you think or let me know of any other shows I should be watching.
