Amazon’s amazingly relevant serial adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s classic novel, The Man in the High Castle, is slated to return on October 5th. My expectations have been severely diminished by revelations in a new teaser.
The following trailer seems to have a lot of promise. But it differs from Dick’s view of the world in TMitHC in one significant way.
But now we get a technological “gateway to the multiverse.” The power of psychic displacement in time and space has been subverted by a machine. Granted, the machine may not work–and that’s the best outcome in my estimation–or it will scar the work, making the series little more than a rehash of Sliders from the 1990s.
Color me unimpressed with the teaser. TMitHC‘s universe doesn’t support this kind of technological skullduggery.
