Season 3
The Man in the High Castle

Critics Consensus

The crafty addition of minor sci-fi elements and a terrific William Forsythe to the show's already engrossing narrative make The Man in the High Castle's third season another worthy binge.

The best hope it offers, in this season, is literally escape to another reality. This is not a good show for the hopeless, who often turn to TV for that very thing.

To be clear, just because I'm not recommending it doesn't mean the show is creatively bankrupt.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

It is by far the best and most consistently ominous drama of the Trump era.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

It is somewhat remarkable how much the writers of The Man in the High Castle are willing to divide their show into multiple plot arcs across the country.

Dec 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The plot plods rather than sizzles - the biggest casualty being the Reich-resisting Juliana Crane (Alexa Davalos), touted as a universe-saving chosen one yet stuck in a holding pattern.

About the importance of the films in our society as a weapon. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

With a new season come new horrors, naturally. The show is still an impressively painful watch... but this year it finds new ways to shock and sadden.

Dec 18, 2018 | Rating: 8.8 | Full Review…

The Man in the High Castle is still posing fundamental questions about humanity and more.

Nov 6, 2018 | Rating: 3.75/5 | Full Review…

Despite the pacing issues in the first half and the convoluted character involvements, The Man in the High Castle is still pretty darn entertaining.

Oct 19, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Everyone seems miserable, and it all seems hopeless, and after three seasons, I'm not sure there's a fight to be had.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Even as its central mystery pushes to the doesn't quite catch the febrile strangeness of Dick's vision, or the imagination.

Oct 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Season three goes some way toward course-correcting.

Audience Reviews for The Man in the High Castle: Season 3

    The gay thing was weird, what was the point? Juliana Crain should have been killed 20 episodes ago. Unrealistic. How did Wyatt survive the tunnel massacre? Weak. Binge watching so only took a couple weeks to watch. John Smith would have put a bullet in Juliana's head long ago. Anyways, I wanted to love it, but they kept Crain alive for too long. Rufus Sewell did a great acting job, maybe a role of a lifetime. Granted I'm writing this the last episode of season 3

    Season 3 was very good. But I don't like something that happend in the fifth episode (i don't want to spoil it) it made me sad. Definetly recommend it, but nothing was the same after the 5th episode.

    Personajes que maduran con el paso de las temporadas.

    I finished Season 1...A+...the production values are incredible...this must have an insanely huge budget...the characters, setting and story are also very well done...I hear people complaining that the series is too slow but I don't see it that me it has a deliberate pace where the big moments have more meaning because it was slowly built up...the sequence with Hitler and Wegener in the S1 finale was a nail biter...the alternate timeline sci-fi aspect is a slow burn but presented in a really interesting way and that opening credit sequence fits the show perfectly...creepy rendition of 'Edelweiss' from The Sound of Music...on to Season 2! I finished up Season 2...this might make my All-Time Top 10 show list after all is said and done...absolutely amazing series...I read that this is Amazon's most watched series so I don't understand why it appears to not be getting the attention and accolades it deserves...very intelligent story...Season 2 was pretty much a direct continuation of the first can tell that they plotted out the story in advance and aren't just making things up as they go...the world building and production values are second to none...a lot of great additions to the cast in S2- Tate Donovan, Bella Heathcote, Stephen Root, Sebastian Roche etc...the show also seems to have a lot of Battlestar Galactica vets (Michael Hogan, Callum Keith Rennie, Rick Worthy) the HDR is no doubt the best implementation out of all the streaming shows I've watched across any platform...reference quality in pretty much every scene...this is the streaming show to show off your TV's HDR capability...stunning...every little detail from the shiny floors, costumes, furniture, facial detail, lighting looks amazing...I don't have an issue with the pacing but maybe that's because I'm watching all 3 seasons seems they plotted out the entire story from the beginning and are taking the time they need to get there...the final few episodes of Season 2 were epic (S2 finale was a slight letdown)...some of the character motivations and constantly switching allegiances are a little confusing but overall this is Amazon's best original series. I don't know if they cut the budget for S3 but it didn't look quite as amazing as the earlier seasons in terms of still looked great but a slight step down...the Dolby Vision also lacked the consistent pop it previously the first 2 seasons almost every scene had amazing depth and pop...S3 had its moments but wasn't as consistently gorgeous (but the dystopian world building is still first rate)...I'm hoping that Nicole Dormer returns for Season 4 (Himmler sent her back to Berlin in the S3 finale for re-education training due to her 'perversions' aka they caught her in that lesbian club)...Bella Heathcote is very sexy and has great charisma on-screen...I'm guessing Joseph Goebbels will play a bigger role in S4 which will bring Nicole back into the story overall I find this to be Amazon's best original series

    engaging and stirring EXCEPT for the last 60 seconds. Not an ending, more like a cheap bookmark.

    Just finished with Season 4. A disappointment, gave it three stars. Season 3 and the prior seasons deserve five stars. I have not gone back to watch Seasons 1 through 3, but from what I recall, Season 3 was the best. The series had tremendous production values, did an outstanding job of re-creating the 1960s, and had excellent acting. Additionally, each character was complex. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who portrayed the Trade Minister (Nobusuke Tagomi) should get a Hollywood award for his performance.

    Still a boring show to watch.

    All of this series so far is absolute gold
  • Jul 06, 2019
    I can't understand why mainstream critics gave season 3 high ratings. Compared to the first two seasons, this season wanders aimlessly. There are no real goals or motivations for any of the main characters. Rather than being captivated by the decisions of Joe, John, Juliana and Tagomi, we are forced to spend time with secondary characters who are completely boring while the main characters stare at things. The final episode is decent but not worth slogging through the previous 9 episodes.

    Big Dick Amazon's expensive version of the PK Dick novel is very decent long form TV. It is a big story with a big cast and budget and shows that Amazon can compete with HBO and more significantly, Netflix. I have just watched the first 3 seasons and found it compelling, suitable for the binge watch everyone talks about these days. It is very sombre in tone and is politically correct to the nth degree, with its female protagonist, gay romances, and evisceration of the evil Nazis and Japanese. It really takes off in season 2 -the first season is merely a set up. In season 2, it blossoms into sci-fi, but it is season 3 that gets its sci-fi treatment going big time. Watching it, you have no idea where its going, but by season 3 it starts to shape up and be exceptional. It has some annoying quirks. Every scene starts quiet and ends in some musical crescendo. Sometimes it slips into cheap TV production values. The lead actress is a bit of a Mary Sue, but that's part of the game these days. She can kill anyone, screw anything and has mesmerising powers - its a bit much. Rufus Sewell stews like a 3 day chilli throughout and gives the show a bit more gravitas than the other characters. The Germans are all ludicrous, and the second season, partly set in Berlin, has ludicrous moments. Somehow, the weirdness of Dick's story is there for all to see, and it's his best novel, so that's good. It makes for superior TV and the last season which will be aired this year (and should be the last) is going to be worth watching.
