The concept behind Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle is a funny one. Not so much the “ha, look at how far-fetched a totalitarian America feels,” but a deeper sci-fi premise than an alternate outcome to World War 2.

Say what you will about Kevin Smith tackling a TV adaptation of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension; there’s no denying his passion for the material.

After the odd job of directing Orange Is the New Black, Weiner now has in mind to direct an anthology series for Amazon, scoring a Don Draper-esque payday in the process.
Amazon is giving you plenty of things to be thankful for in November, adding dozens of new film and television titles to their streaming library — would it be too much to ask for an add-on program that takes the agony out of deciding what to watch, though? For instance, it’s a heavy first world burden to choose between the first season of AMC’s The Night Manager and binge-watching all of the Rocky movies (yes, even Creed). Before you know it, you’ve already wasted half of your Saturday browsing before you end up rewatching The Addams Family for the billionth time.
Looking for something new to stream this weekend? Here’s three brand new titles to watch right now.
