The Man in the High Castle: Season 3 (2018)



Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for The Man in the High Castle Season 3

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (5)

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.

It's a head-scramble all right, but a beautifully detailed and rigorous one.

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.

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.

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

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

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…

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

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

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.

losing a bit of ground but still interesting

third season was great

This is a brilliant series. The plot moves at a nice pace and the finale really leaves you wanting more. Loving forward to series 4.

Despite a truly frightening premise, excellent actors, and stellar production values, "The Man In The High Castle" continues to be weighed down by too many plots and too many characters. I'm hoping season 4 (the show has already been renewed) will delve more heavily into the alternate universes. That is really what I have been waiting for all this time.

One of my favorite shows! Keeps getting better but they need to make the show longer! More episodes ASAP cuz it’s #StraightCrack

Season 3 of Man in the High Castle seems to be where the writers for this series have decided to go on holiday and let an intern have a go. Lazy writing and a slow pace to begin with are more than made up for by the end of the season where everyone is ex-machina! The decision to turn Jules into some sort of holy figure who’s mere presence will convince people to join the cause is a strange one as the character has no real depth beyond being the chosen one. She will make decisions which make you question if shes schizophrenic, like sleeping with Joe knowing full well he’s a Nazi, then in the next scene kissing the Irish guy (Wyatt) while still being distraught over the scene before. The relatable characters of John Smith and Trade Minister Tagomi are both themselves turned into poor relations of what made them enjoyable in the past, John is now a pathetic soul who just stares moodily out of windows and into ashtrays. There are too many characters who add nothing but only arrive to advance the plot….random Jewish scientist I’m looking at you! The actual quality of the acting is pretty good though, it’s the writing that stinks. I certainly won’t be watching season 4 should they make it.

I loved season 1 & 2 and I wasn't expecting what I've seen now with this season 3. After the beginning of the second episode of season 3, I saw that something changed, the general plot, the essence of the characters, the whole world of the new season changed, so I thought that maybe the staff changed and that someone with some decision power in the staff left, I searched on Internet and I found that is like I thought. Season 1 & 2 were a piece of art, something different from all the others tv shows that I start to watch but I never end. Everything was boring and predictable but this show. This was something uncommon, something that wanted to be different from the rest of the western tv shows, and now I've got everything conformed to the mass standard, I dunno why people continue watching always the same things and pretend that everything must be like they want. Sorry, I just miss the true man in the high castle.

I love the pace and production values of this show. Very watchable.

Turned off by the sudden inclusion of both a homosexual couple and lesbian couple right on top of each other as if an after thought. In the neutral zone or Japanese occupied west, likely believable. Lesbians would never exist so openly in Nazi Germany in the form of Lesbian night clubs though,and not in any multiverse depicted as dark as this one is. The sets and scenery is all I watch this show for. Very lovely interior room decorating, I must say.
