    Watched the pilot for this when I saw it was picked up. Whats the general time frame for more episodes now? Not a year like Bosch I hope?

    It will be late this year early next would be a good guess for it to come to series.

    The pilot was underwhelming to say the least. Not holding out much hope.

    I saw that this morning, whats the story with the release of the rest of it? Is it going to be a weekly thing? I was under the impression that all the episodes would be later in the year/early next year?

    The first two episodes were streamed on EW.com as an exclusive preview for Comic Con.

    It will be released fully at the end of the year/early next year.

    Rumours suggesting it's already been renewed for season 2. Nothing official yet.

    Another Tv series that I am looking forward too.There seems to be a ton of great new Tv Shows coming out ,which means that it will be harder to see and follow everything.So hard choices will have to be made on what to give up. I hav'nt read the book for this one but the story intrigues me enough that I probably will before watching the show.


    The Man in the High Castle is an American alternate historytelevision series produced by ]Amazon Studios The series is based on ]the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. The story is an of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been divided into three parts: The Japanese puppet state of the Pacific States of America, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains; a German puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States; and a neutral zone that acts as a buffer between the two areas, called the Rocky Mountain States

    Are they trying to go head to head with Netflix/Marvel with that release date? I'm interested in watching this but with a choice of watching this or Jessica Jones on the 20th, I'll be making mine Marvel.


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Regional East Moderators Posts: 17,326 Mod ✭✭✭✭ The Black Oil


    No idea. Who announced their air date first? Marvel might have the advantage with their brand awareness from Daredevil, etc.

    Are you subscribed to both Netflix and Amazon?

    Drops tomorrow but will probably get lost in the Jessica Jones hype as it drops tomorrow as well.

    I know I'll be watching Jessica Jones first.

    Bad timing by Amazon I think.

    Can you watch this from Ireland if you have an amazon prime subscription..? I tried to watch the free first episode and it told me it was region restricted...

    Just finished watching the 10 episodes and I am undecided about it. Very slow moving but I love the alternative history vibe and over all I did enjoy the actors in it.

    I'm fascinated to see what they make of Season 2.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Amazon had to pull a lot of it advertising from all over America. There was huge outrage and a backlash to the Swastika's and Rising Sun's blended into the US Flag ad campaign's

    There also changed the seating on trains in New York.

    Has anybody else watched this amazon original series? It is based on a Philip K Dick book set in 1960's america after they lost WW2 to the germans and japanese. I'm currently up to episode 4 and it has been really interesting so far. Really good production values as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,328 ✭✭✭✭ gandalf


    It's being discussed here http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2057384991

    I've finished it and yes overall I enjoyed it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,015 ✭✭✭ Ludo


    Dead forum which only serves to split conversations. Three threads posted to in last 4 days? Waste of time. Forum should be put out of its misery and keep all threads here.

    I am 5 eps into this so far. Enjoying it. Slow going but interesting. Will definitely stick with it. Production is indeed excellent.

    cheers. Didnt realise there was a dedicated online tv forum.

    cheers. Didnt realise there was a dedicated online tv forum.

    It is a completely artificial concept for a forum. The distinction between "online" tv and "broadcast" tv is a crazy one to base forums on. A tv show is a tv show no matter where it airs.
