The Man in the High Castle
OVERALL: Oh this is good. A fabulous spy thriller/war story. And scary. It absolutely scares me. You bet I’m going to keep watching.
POINTS: Excellent production values. And the whole story premise. If that doesn’t freak you out, what will? It is very believable too.
PITFALLS: Uh, I’ll let you know. Oh wait: The Nazis and the Japanese won. Gulp.
FEMALE CHARACTER(S): We mostly focus on Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) however there are many other minor female characters that appear and work together. I’m looking forward to watching the whole thing.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): Well Nazis has a lot of issues and we get to see them here. Oh joy.
HIGH POINT(S): This show terrifies me. It’s scarier than The Woman in Black. *gulp* I gotta know what happens so I must keep watching.
BECHDEL TEST (Website): 3 of 3. Well done!
RACIAL BECHDEL TEST (Website): 3 of 3. The Japanese characters make this happen. And it is interesting to see their concern about holding the west coast of America.
DVD/BLU-RAY WORTHY: Yup.
LION PAW PRINTS: 3.5 of 5.
