Critic Reviews for The Man in the High Castle: Season 2

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

A snappy piece of speculative fiction, with the ageing, frail figure of Adolf Hitler at the centre of it all, his greying portrait still hanging in high school classrooms where slavery is celebrated.

That The Man in the High Castle is a valuable show doesn't mean it's a perfect one, although the second season is stronger than the first, which invested much more heavily in visuals and style than it did in story or characters.

As much as the premise is a powerful exercise in imagination, as well as an opportunity to visualize what could happen in this country, the show just doesn't take off.

December 15, 2016 | Full Review…

Season 2... continues to find ways to make this world feel real and grounded, even as the mythology surrounding the more fantastical possibilities inherent in its premise gets deeper.

December 7, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The show is so frankly boring that the plot and characters feel like excuses for the production design.

February 1, 2017 | Full Review…

Thanks to dull characters and mostly flaccid storylines, it falls short of being essential viewing. It drifts often and at length, too in love with its own wonderfully recreated world to realise that - half the time - it's going nowhere.

Moving away from the source material, The Man in the High Castle season 2 offers more surprises from the American Reich to the Japanese resistance. Although the plot was getting a bit thinner, it was still very enjoyable.
