Trivia

John Smith carries the rank of Obergruppenführer ("senior group leader"), while his superior Reinhard Heydrich has the similar-sounding rank of Oberst-Gruppenführer ("supreme group leader" or "colonel group leader"). During WWII, these were the two highest SS commissioned ranks, with Oberst-Gruppenführer reporting directly to the Reichsführer-SS, Heinrich Himmler. See more »

Quotes

Mark Sampson: I don't plan on dying, Frank. But you can't live your life in fear. I was back east at the end of the war, in Boston.
Frank Frink: Oh, Jesus.
Mark Sampson: Yeah. You had to see it to believe it, Frank. Overnight, lynch mobs were murdering Jews because suddenly we were less than human.
Frank Frink: And what did you do?
Mark Sampson: Well, those of us who came out in one piece. We buried service weapons underground, well wrapped in oil, and we vowed revenge. I got a life to lead, got kids to raise. And Hitler and the Nazis - I mean, I don't care how...

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! =)
