Trivia

Production lingered in development for several years. In 2010, the BBC planned to film a four-part miniseries version, produced by Ridley Scott. By 2013, the production had moved to the SyFy channel - still as a four-part series - with Frank Spotnitz joining Scott. The production then moved to Amazon, which began production of the pilot on October 1 2014. See more »

Goofs

The total population of both Germany and Japan in 1940 was actually 5 million people less than the total US population. While the history of the series' universe is different than that of reality, besides the US' manufacturing base exceeding both nations, the population difference would have made their ability to conquer the country an impossibility.

Excellent - it's far the most promising pilot of all pitched for 2015
16 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm a big PKD as well as Ridley Scott fan so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it on my Prime home page... and the pilot has vastly exceeded my expectations! It is visually impeccable, great cinematography and CG and art direction, script is pretty close to the original book, excellent pacing, very good acting... characters at this point are not too deep but this is a one-hour pilot, it supposed to tease us, not reveal everything, let alone (correctly) focusing on story development right now, not character development (which inherently requires a few episodes.) Excellent job, this MUST be continued, Amazon! =)
