Critics Consensus

By executive producer Ridley Scott, The Man in the High Castle is unlike anything else on TV, with an immediately engrossing plot driven by quickly developed characters in a fully realized post-WWII dystopia.

Audience Reviews for The Man in the High Castle: Season 1

  • Nov 11, 2021
    The first thing to say is that this shares almost nothing in common with the book beyond the title and basic premise of an alternative history in which the Allies lost WW2 and the USA being split into three zones with two of them occupied by Germany and Japan. So for fans of the book it may be best to look elsewhere. However, if you can look beyond that this is truly compelling drama which is superbly written, directed and acted and with very high production values. The idea is quite an old one (Germany and/or Japan winning WW2 and what history might have looked like) but it is especially well done here. The characters are uniformly well written and most are multi-dimensional, being neither heroic or absolutely evil, this can be disconcerting as Rufus Sewell gives such a masterful performance as Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith that he actually becomes a sympathetic character at times despite his evil position. The show mixes action and human drama and works at many levels, superb.

    Started well but then the createors decided to drag it on so it just became a very slow developing story that doesn't get you anywhere

    Every episode is so rich in detail. Every second shown on the screen is meaningful. I really enjoy this series; even though torture scenes are hard for me to watch, the show balances them well.

    When bored watch.....

    Loved it. Great alternative history drama/sci fi. The villains in the show are absolute beasts!
  • Sep 02, 2020
    Dark and menacing, well presented setting and cast of characters. Much more interesting than how action movies portray such a subject.
  • Sep 01, 2020
    This is a fascinating series that presents an alternative history where Germany wins World War 2. It tries to be violent, thought provoking, melodramatic, and suspenseful at the same time. Not especially well acted, written or directed but the story pulls you in.

    Excellency on it's best. From the writing to the very last acting, totally worthwhile
  • Jul 10, 2020
    Kudos to the writer's behind this incredible story. The actors put on a first class performance. You get a realistic look how things may have been if the allies lost the war. This is drama at its finest.

    A series you never want to see, The Man In The High Castle is nothing but a boring cliche filled boring characters
