What’s it about
After giving Joe the film, Juliana is forced to flee the fury of the Resistance while embarking on a new path to save her home from destruction. Joe confronts his absent father in Berlin, who is not as he seems. Smith wrestles with what to do about his ill son. Frank takes a gamble with his life in a bid to save Ed. Tagomi’s life is turned upside down by his “travel” to an alternative world.
You managed to do again in season 2 what you did in season 1: you left us all hanging… again. I was hoping for some resolution, an end to the endless nights staring at my ceiling, waiting breathlessly for season 2. Now that I have binged it, I am again left with that same feeling. I will again lie sleepless, tortured, for weeks, nay, possibly years, until when? Until season 3.
Let me be really clear: unless a third season is produced and produced soon, I may very well drop dead of insomnia. So please… if you have any compassion for your fellow man… please… make a third season.
First, the premise is radically different from anything we would normally think about: Japan and Germany won World War II, with Japan occupying everything west of the Rocky Mountains, Germany occupying everything east of the Rocky Mountains, and the Rockies themselves being neutral territory, occupied by neither.
Second, the sets are phenomenal. In the very first episode, you find yourself believing that you are seeing 1960 California occupied by the Japanese and the difference in how things would appear is just so real and so believable. Every set all the way through the series is believable in ways that I can’t even begin to describe. A lot of money, a lot of thought, and a lot of talent went into the development of the sets alone.
