I watched the first season and kind of agree. The hook for this story is the relationship between real and alternate histories whichI watched all of it. It was good, but I'm still not 100% sure what the point of it was.
Yeah, I hope they have more about that in a second season. Has anybody that read the book watched the full season yet? Do they have much more to cover without adding to it?I watched the first season and kind of agree. The hook for this story is the relationship between real and alternate histories which

LOL, no, it's not.It's the Austrian national anthem.
Ah! Knew I recognized it.LOL, no, it's not.
"Edelweiss" is a show tune from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music and as an article from The Atlantic, ‘Edelweiss’: An American Song for Global Dystopia, explains:
It’s a common misconception that “Edelweiss” is a classic Austrian folk song, selected for The Sound of Music to bring to the show an added dash of cultural authenticity. It is not. It was written for the musical in the late 1950s by Rodgers and Hammerstein, who wanted to create a song for Captain von Trapp that would subtly convey his regret and his sadness and his pre-emptive nostalgia at having to leave Austria after the Nazi takeover.
I've found Phillip Dick stories to be vibrant, interesting reads, but seem to be used as a starting point for movies who then run with the ball to places not visited by the author.. TMITHC is on my reading list. I recently read We can remember it for you Wholesale (Total Recall), where they never make it to Mars.Yeah, I hope they have more about that in a second season. Has anybody that read the book watched the full season yet? Do they have much more to cover without adding to it?
If it's Dickian, the basic question is: What is real? Basically, Philip K. Dick spent a lifetime exploring the nature of reality in the majority of his works, and this question (on the nature of reality) spilled out into Dick's own (personal) reality, as well as spilling out to affect the reader's perception of reality (as Dick noted in The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick: "Maybe by writing about it and getting other people to read my writing I change reality by their reading it...") And that will probably scare the b'jesus out of more than a few, since even the thought of "escaping reality" is a really terrifying no-no in some people's (conventionally-minded) minds...... Apparantly the story exists in an alternate reality. However, the description of the book sounds like the alternate reality hook I've mentioned, as in there being two possibilities, does not exist, but I've not confirmed that...
