A new trailer from last week is up. Sorry I can't link at the moment, Google is your friend. The series airs this fall!

It reminds me of a terrible game that I bought a long time ago called Turning Point:Fall of Liberty. But unlike that crappy rip-off of the book, this series looks like it may be good. Have you seen the pilot yet?

I did see it but have never read the book. I really enjoyed the pilot and will watch again before starting the series.

The book is typical Philip K. Dick greatness. I'm cautious about any film version though (just my cynical bias that's all). Should go back and read it again.

Well I'm confused. The trade minister opens his eyes to find himself in "our" reality???

I hope there is a season two.

Four episodes in and I really like it!  I love the pacing, detailed plot development, and the overall mood of it.

Another Amazon show I started watching was Red Oaks.  It's a comedy set in the mid-80's that follows a young adult working as a tennis pro.  Pretty interesting so far.

I have watched both seasons and think very highly of them. Overall very well done, good characters, interesting story line and a lot of twists. I think there is even going to be a 3rd season. I still am confused by some of the parallel universe jumping stuff but still think it is a very entertaining show. I would highly recommend :ebert:

My wife will complain she doesn't know what's going on. I tell her I haven't firmly grasped it all either. I'm enjoying the mystery.

Season 3 was recently given the greenlight.
