    Following the roaring success of my Deutschland '83 thread, I thought I'd post on here again. Has anyone seen the above? Trailers look good and it's an adaptation of Philip K. Dick novel.

    I'm 7 episodes in ... it's OK

    Pretty slow but I'm going to watch the series as I think the subject matter is very interesting

    I watched the whole thing and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's pretty much the perfect kind of show for me, though. I love dystopian/conspiracy stuff and have a verging-on-unhealthy interest in the Nazis.

    Its not close to the book though, which was my main gripe.
