The Man in the High Castle

Perfect time as usual. Thanks, Amazon. This little Christmas gift of Season 2 of The Man in the High Castle comes at the perfect time. As the winter sets in, all we want to do is put on some sweatpants and binge Man in the High Castle.

If you aren’t excited yet, here’s the official teaser for the 2nd season.

About the Show

It’s a snapshot into an alternate history of what life in America would look like if after WWII if the Nazis had won the war. The show dives into this dystopian scenario, splitting the United States into three districts, one controlled by the Japanese, one controlled by the Nazis, and a “neutral” zone between the two. There’s a lot of darkness and oppression. However, the show is really about the ray of hope that emerges through films that are uncovered and appear to show a different world. The show follows a woman who believes the films will unlock freedom and is determined to find their mysterious keeper of the films.

Atlanta

Here’s the thing. It’s 2016, and this year produced so much great television. It’s getting harder and harder to stay on top of watching everything. And as we move to streaming everything, sometimes the cable shows on networks like FX, get missed. So we’ll forgive you if you haven’t seen Danny Glover‘s Atlanta yet. But do yourself a favor and binge it up on the first season of this award nominated show over the holidays. We’ll show you how to binge it and then watch it when it airs again in 2017. You’re welcome.

Atlanta is an honest and real take on the rap game in the ATL. It’s the story of two cousins, Earnest “Earn” Marks (Donald Glover) and Alfred Miles (Brian Tyree Henry), as they climb to stardom in a cutthroat industry. And it succeeds in a big way with a finely-crafted and funny twist

The story begins with Earnest (Glover) coming back to Atlanta to see the stock of his cousin Alfred (Henry) rising in the Atlanta rap world. Unlike predictable, plot-driven comedies, Atlanta does an artful job of diving into its characters while handling topics like race, art, class, and identity with unique, fresh humor.

Here’s a 1-minute trailer if you still aren’t sure.

The Bottom Line

Atlanta, the FX show that premiered in September, has flown under the radar with some of the season’s big hits like, This Is Us and Westworld. However, the Danny Glover comedy about two cousins coming up in the Atlanta rap scene is a versatile comedy that will leave the award shows buzzing. A must watch.

How to watch and binge

Season 2 has yet to have an official premiere date. But it has been renewed and will most likely come back on the air during fall of 2017. You will be able to stream it live on Sling TV (Blue) or Playstation Vue (all tiers).

The first season is available for binging and can be streamed through Amazon.
