Is there a SLOWER series on TV than "The Man in the High Castle"?

I'm on episode 3.4 and I don't think I'll be going any further.

1. It certainly isn't The Leftovers or Breaking Bad....

We got through it, found it pretty dark and depressing, and yes, some real slow moving sections. Lots of mumbling too. We feel about it like we did The Americans - we watched it all, but it never really was something we craved - I would say for both of these series we endured them.

Six Feet Under, Sopranos - we actually craved those - binged them.

The only thing my first wife and I really enjoyed doing together. LOL

5. If you want something with a similar theme (political thriller), but with a lot of action,

try "Occupied" on Netflix. There's plenty of intrigue and political complexity but it moves fast, and there's a lot of timely stuff about Russian interference with other countries' governments. A great series - I loved it.

7. Seems they have blown

a great concept in my mind. I am not quite as far as you are into the 3rd season.

The funny thing is how some of the actors remind me of more well known actors.

The antique dealer reminds me of Kevin Spacey.

The American Nazi John Smith reminds me of Christopher Walken.

Juliana reminds me of the actress who played Claire Kincade in Law and Order.

Of course I told my mom when we were watching Birdbox. That actress really reminds me of Sandra Bullock - I guess for a good reason.
