Agree on Obergruppenfuhrer Smith

The scene where Smith explains the "Plan" to his wife was amazing and shocking to me. It showed how totally in control he always was of his world and how he thinks enough moves ahead to explain how he achieved all he had.

Frink did not grow on me this season. I actually liked him less. His complaint about someone not being shot by the Kempeitai as being suspicious was totally ridiculous (remembering his situation in the first season).

I notice you didn't mention Julia. I would have forgotten her as well lol. Even though she was the center coin.

Yeah Frank is a strange character indeed. He might have been killed off in that resistance bomb attack on the Japanese generals so we may never see him again. Maybe!

Juliana is alright I think, but there is just something about her demeanour which bugs me a little. But for every average actor/actress there are as many good ones on the show.

The one criticism I have was I didn't like the way they handled Trade Minister Tagomi's dimension travels in season 2. It might have been done a bit better or a bit like in the book were he is shell shocked at being transported to the real America and then stunned at not been respected enough for being Japanese by white Americans. Also that Japanese-American resistance girl didn't fit that well, although I did like the mention of the Manzanar internment camp during the war and aftermath.

The shows visuals are just great. I don't know how some critics are panning the second season as I don't think the material matter could have been done any better and its should win some awards for it.

His origin is profoundly different from the other Japanese characters...

Anyone watch season 3?

No loss in quality IMO. And the CGI for creating a totally new world seems to get better and better.

Glad a season 4 has already started filming.

Reminder how to do spoiler text.

Some great alternative history and some more places in the world. Chicago, Denver, Pennsylvania, US South West and Cuba.

Loved the Japanese Navy scenes, huge battleships. The Japs have helicopters and jetfighters on their aircraft carriers. The Nazi's of course are using VTOL jets, and are way ahead of them.

I think the Nazi tanks were M48's or M60's. Thought the show would have had them using Leopard 2's.

Some good new characters and some memorable deaths for sucky ones.

Dr Mengele, Lincoln Rockwell and Edgar Hoover. Who knew Hoover was a Nazi? The new Irish character is good, way better than Joe Blake and the other resistance guys they have had in season 1 and 2. Joe Blake dies a memorable death but not as good as Frank Fink's! A lot of gay themes too!

...and John Wayne dies an American hero even in this world!

Totally agree.



Also, those Japanese jets on the carrier look like Navalized Mitsubishi F-1s




Edit: Kato fixed image links.

It set in 1962 and Chuck didn't start practising martial arts until the mid-60's.
