The OCD in me wouldnít allow me not to keep watching. Already watched the first two episodes of season 2 and itís stepped it up a bit and peeked my interest more. Especially already have had Julianna meet the man in the high castle.

I haven't read the book but I know the premise and story of it, and I like that the show is really expanding on that element of it.

Spoileres about the book

Well, in general Dick's books ara about how we percieve reality and how we don't know wheter what we see is true or not, not alternate realities. In this book in particular, he gives the sense that what's being described in the book is not real, and that what really happened after the second war is what's seen in the videos they find and the book written by the man in the high castle.

End of spoilers about the book

What I like about the show is that they are grabbing all of the elements in the book and putting them to a great use, even if they change the storyline and add things, it's well crafted and they way it's produced gives it a certain look as if you were seeig it through some kind of veil.

The second season is night and day better than the first. I'm enjoying it much more....more compelling storytelling going on. I think I'm on episode 6 now so only a few more to go, but it's certainly gained traction for me.

Just finished season two. That was really good. Way better than season 1, characters really started to get honed in. Objergruppenfuher John Smith is by far my favorite character still. The Trade Minister and other Japanese authority guy are close seconds. I like Julianna but those other characters are really cool.

Canít wait for season 3.
