The Man In The High Castle

This evening I finished watching all ten episodes of The Man In The High Castle, season 1. The story takes place in an alternative 1962 America, where the country is ruled partly by Nazis and, on the west coast, by the Japanese. Once the show takes off, it grabs you and compels you to watch episode after episode. I shouldn't say it does that to you, because I don't know how you'll receive it. But I found myself drawn in-- and over a few evenings have finished season 1. I anticipate another season to follow in a few months.

The show caused me to stop and seriously think about what kind of world we would live in if the Axis powers had won the war (at some points during the conflict, that was not inconceivable). It also brought me to a place of gratitude for the freedom our parents and grandparents sacrificed so much to give us. I pray we don't throw that gift away through rash decisions and terrible foreign policy such as we seem to be faced with at the present time in America.

Those show may be found on Amazon video and is available at no extra cost to Amazon Prime subscribers. If Amazon's other original offerings are as good, I will certainly remain a loyal Prime customer. And here I thought it was all about the free two day shipping...
