julianaTV has asked us to identify with a lot of antiheroes—mob bosses, teachers turned drug kingpins, Soviet-era spies who kill sweet old ladies—but embracing genocidal war criminals feels like a bridge too far. Even worse, Season 2 of The Man in the High Castle┬ávilifies the resistance. It’s like they remade Casablanca, but focused on the problems of Colonel Strasser, and they made Victor Lazlo a self-righteous doofus. ┬áPlus Juliana is now some kind of crazy superhero with a role to play in every single time frame and all her idiotic decisions save the world.

And that is the elevator version of my Season 2 Review up at The Agony Booth, but you should read the whole thing for yourself. Plus too, the book is better.
