Review: Amazon's 'The Man in the High Castle' builds a world where Nazis won WWII

Adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel is visually strong, but spotty in characterization

"You ever think," Juliana Crain wonders, "how different life would be if you could change just one thing?"

It's almost as if she knows she's one of the main characters in a story set in just such an alternate timeline: Amazon's new drama "The Man in the High Castle," where the Axis powers won World War II and divided America up into separate Japanese and German-run states.

'Magnum PI,' 'Veronica Mars,' & more: TV's best private detectives ever

Before 'Jessica Jones' debuts, a look back at some of the medium's finest private eyes

TV hasn't lacked for police detectives since the days of Joe Friday on "Dragnet" in the early '50s. But the medium's also had plenty of room for Friday's private investigator counterparts, who prefer the ability to be their own boss, choose their own cases, and dress and work how they choose.

'The Revolution Was Televised' returns with an updated edition!

All your questions about the new version of the book, answered

(UPDATE: The book went on sale on Dec. 1, so I've updated it with ordering information for various sites.)

Three years ago, I published my second book, "The Revolution Was Televised," a look at 12 drama series — "Oz," "The Sopranos," "The Wire," "Deadwood," "The Shield," "Lost," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "24," "Battlestar Galactica," "Friday Night Lights," "Mad Men," and "Breaking Bad" — that helped define the landscape of TV's new Golden Age.

In a few weeks, a new edition is being released, and since I've been getting a lot of questions about it, I figured the easiest way to answer would be right here:

Review: 'Jessica Jones' is Marvel's darkest — and best — series so far

Krysten Ritter, David Tennant and Mike Colter star in a twisted superhero saga

Superhero stories began as adolescent male power fantasies, where the meekest among us were revealed to have hidden strength that they could use to solve any problem they wanted. Over time, the genre has layered complications on top of that — the angst of Spider-Man, the oppressed minority metaphors of the X-Men — but more often than not, these stories present superherodom as the best possible life.
