Trivia

John Smith carries the rank of Obergruppenführer ("senior group leader"), while his superior Reinhard Heydrich has the similar-sounding rank of Oberst-Gruppenführer ("supreme group leader" or "colonel group leader"). During WWII, these were the two highest SS commissioned ranks, with Oberst-Gruppenführer reporting directly to the Reichsführer-SS, Heinrich Himmler. The rank of Obergruppenfuhrer is the equivalent in U.S. Army ranks to Lieutenant General, three stars. See more »

Goofs

John Smith is referred to as Obergruppenführer, but the insignia he wears is for Oberstgruppenführer. Which is a rank higher than Obergruppenführer and is just under Reichsführer. See more »

Quotes

Joe Blake: [noticing ashes falling like snowflakes] What is that?

Nazi Police Officer: Yeah, Tuesdays, they burn cripples, the terminally ill. Drag on the state.

Excellent - it's far the most promising pilot of all pitched for 2015
16 January 2015 | by szlevi-1See all my reviews

I'm a big PKD as well as Ridley Scott fan so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it on my Prime home page... and the pilot has vastly exceeded my expectations! It is visually impeccable, great cinematography and CG and art direction, script is pretty close to the original book, excellent pacing, very good acting... characters at this point are not too deep but this is a one-hour pilot, it supposed to tease us, not reveal everything, let alone (correctly) focusing on story development right now, not character development (which inherently requires a few episodes.) Excellent job, this MUST be continued, Amazon! =)
