The atmospheric feel of the show was excellent. It definitely felt like you were watching a high quality movie rather than just a TV show. It must have been set around 1960 based on the references to Hitler, Himmler, and other prominent figures from WWII still being alive. Being an old aerospace engineer, my favorite bit was the Nazi supersonic passenger jet. It looked real, so they definitely spent some money on the CGI.
All that being said, I wish it was a movie or just a short mini-series. I'm not sure this topic would sustain my interest for a full-length series. The pace of the episode seemed very slow and with the very minor level of resistance activity shown, it is hard to believe they could ever overthrow the Nazis or the Japanese unless the series is going to drag on for decades. I mean, realistically, all we got for an hour of our time was a guy driving a truck from the east coast towards somewhere around Utah and a girl riding a bus from the west coast towards the same place. It was hardly enough to get me excited to sit through hours and hours of this.
I enjoy alternate history stories and have read a lot of that type of novels and wished we would see more of it in TV and the movies. Therefore I think the basic concept of this show has some potential, but this pilot episode didn't hit it out of the park for me.
