Bothers me they released the 3rd season in 1 go, do they not understand people have weakneses? That weak individuals practically bingewatched the 10 and a half hours in one sitting?

 

And yeah, that SF bay take with the load of yamato class ships (altho they look a bit short?) its a killer.

Different "Topic":

 

Anyone know which Cruisers are shown in the first clip?

I mean Yamato (or a refitted Musashi) is obvious and the Carrier is  most likely the refitted Taiho (post-war flightdeck) but I never really cared about the japanese Cruisers...

They look like Mogami class, with the 10x8" guns - those are the only actual in service ships with that particular turret layout - not sure about paper designs, but could be Ibuki, in WoWs terms (unlikely though).

Great season, although not in a binge session - last episode didn't feel like the end of a season to me, but certainly left the story hanging on 3 particular moments.

More likely this (and other books) is where Wolfenstein got it's inspiration from for the storyline.

edit: I really shouldn't take 45 minutes to post my comment without refreshing first

I'll try to explain it without any major spoiler...

 

The Axis Powers won WWII and (in the books) the world is now devided between Imperialist Italy, the Japanese National State and the Greater German Reich with it's client states (the later two in the series).

The USA are devided into japanese Colonies (Pacific Coast) the Neutral Zone (Rocky Mountains to the border of Mexico) and well Germany.

In the books and the series you follow the lifes of different people living in each of the zones of this new america in the 1960s.

 

 

 


The Axis did not win because of some fancy new Tech or something but because Hitler did get his hands on Films showing alternate realities. And thus he could change his chause of action properly to win.

 

Map how it is in the books:

Map how it is in the series:

At first I didn't watch it, because the series differs a great deal from the books but out of boredom I gave it a try and now I'm hooked... :cap_fainting:

As a PSA, have had people that could not watch it because they are brutally sensitive to the look and feel of the series.

 

Watchers beware, its a well done movie/series, but a movie/series nonetheless.

Yup, it is quite dark, my better half refuses to watch it, she made it partway through the first episode of season 1... having said that, she doesn't like the portrayal of violence in any sort of realistic way.

Warning:

Spoilers and political commentary inside...

 



Remember in Season 2 when Giulianna seeks asylum in the Reich? When my Grandfather (Born 1923 in the USSR) saw the scenes after she had her medical exam, he said that this reminds him of "home" (Russia under Stalin). And all the new scenes in Season 3, how the nazis try to rewrite history, indoctrinate the young, smelt the liberty bell into a swastika and blow up lady liberty...

Your own fault, watching all the sh*t they spit out!

There are currently (my opinion) only 3 series that are a must watch:

 

Vikings

The Expanse

Man in the High Castle

Lol, if I only had time to watch anything.

I prefer one-season tv shows though or limited to 12 episodes or shorter then 30 minutes.

The Terror would be good example.

 

With Sci-Fi theme though (from the top of my head), I'd add Counterpart and Westworld. Both have interesting premise.

Something about seeing a helicopter land on the aft of the Yamato is just awesome.

Also, that carrier - pretty certain it must be a refit Taihou or something - are those jets on the flight deck?:cap_look:

As someone said earlier, the cruisers shown are 95% certain Mogamis with the 203s. They seem to have enjoyed the addition of a radar as well but no conversion to a seaplane carrier was made (you can see the back guns on the cruiser in the back). Carrier could be the Shinano or Taiho based on the funnel, but the flight deck is flush with the hull so definitely Taiho. What seems weird to me is the complete absence of additional/improved AA guns; in fact, the only differences between those ships and the real ones in 1944 are the radars and the helicopter landing pad. Then again I don't think many viewers noticed...

This is most likely because in the books the attack on Pearl Harbor was an actual battle, the entire pacific fleet was destroyed and Hawaii was occupied for a few weeks. No american carrier equals no threat by them.

Also Franklin D. Roosevelt was assassinated (the event which also starts to split the timeline) so the US still didn't recover from the Great Depression and maintained an isolationist philosophy.
