Trivia

The man in the Sunshine diner folds an origami unicorn. This is an homage to scene in Blade Runner (1982) (directed by Ridley Scott, producer of this series) which is based on the novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" by Philip K. Dick (author of "The Man in the High Castle"). Furthermore, at the very end of season one there's a prominently displayed billboard for the film Lolita (1962) featuring Sue Lyon who was married to Hampton Fancher, screenwriter of 'Blade Runner'.

Quotes

Mark Sampson: I don't plan on dying, Frank. But you can't live your life in fear. I was back east at the end of the war, in Boston.
Frank Frink: Oh, Jesus.
Mark Sampson: Yeah. You had to see it to believe it, Frank. Overnight, lynch mobs were murdering Jews because suddenly we were less than human.
Frank Frink: And what did you do?
Mark Sampson: Well, those of us who came out in one piece. We buried service weapons underground, well wrapped in oil, and we vowed revenge. I got a life to lead, got kids to raise. And Hitler and the Nazis - I mean, I don't care how...

beyond impress, stayed up until 2 am on a week day...
23 November 2015 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

I'm a TV show lover, but never! ever! has a series made me want to write a review. It was a cold Sunday evening... I was waiting for Sunday night football around 645pm. I decided to squeeze in the pilot. Needless to say, 7 episodes later I was still watching. The story line is incredible. The acting is great. The emotions that it brought out of me was real and raw. It made me appreciate and think differently about the word/idea/concept that we all throw around "FREEDOM." Yes, it's fictional, and yes it's just a TV-show, but boy! they hit on something, at least in me. I'm beyond impress! Monday morning, coffee to the rescue!
