Trivia

'Edelweiss', the opening theme song, is commonly believed to be an Austrian folk song, but was actually written for the musical 'Sound of Music' which would never have been written if the Nazis had won the war. In addition, the song would never have been written in Nazi-occupied America even in the absence of the musical as Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein were from Jewish families (although Hammerstein was raised Episcopalian).

Hope this goes to series
15 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a longtime fan of Philip K. Dick's novel, I was definitely interested when I read that Amazon had ordered a pilot. Now that I've seen it, I have to say it exceeded my expectations. The acting is good and the production values are excellent, as the crew did a superb job of bringing to life an alternate 1962 America. But perhaps Frank Spotnitz's greatest success is in his management of the source material, as his script remains pretty faithful to PKD's novel within the parameters of a 1-hour pilot. I would love to see Amazon make this a series, not only to see how Spotnitz and his team adapt the rest of the novel, but also to see where they might take it in seasons to come.
