The Man in the High Castle: Season Two 2016

     In this season, Juliana gives an important film reel to Joe and he flees on a fishing boat.  Trade Minister envisions a world where the Nazis had not won WWII.  Juliana needs to make a decision on how to save her life.  She wants to see Joe Blake but he’s gone to Berlin.  Frank and Ed have a payment due to the Yakuza.  John Smith has a lot on his plate with his family.  Joe learns more about his past during his time in Berlin.  Juliana continues to work for the Resistance.  Frank learns that Ed has a secret.  Tagomi and Kido work together to get a film to Berlin.
     There is once again a LOT going on in this Season and there are a LOT of surprises.  The Resistance is trying to push forward but both the Germans and the Japanese have their own plans for their sections of the United States.  It’s easy to get in HOT water wherever you are located or what you are doing!!  Individual and collective decisions have ripple effects!!  5* (I really loved this series)
