Shows like Man in the High Castle: Fascist State Dystopias

If television shows reveal our collective hopes and fears, then the recent spate of television dramas imagining the resurgence of fascism is cause for grave concern. Even worse are documentaries chronicling the actual rise of fascism.

Shows like Hunters: Hunting down Nazis

Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards was not the first revenge fantasy about killing Nazis to hit the screen, nor was it the last. This list includes alternate histories like Hunters and the Man in the High Castle, as well as dramas set during the Second World War. The common theme--they all kill Nazis.

Shows Like Man in the High Castle: Dystopian Futures

Whether the ruling class are Nazis or aliens (no Nazi aliens, fortunately), the societies they enforce are pretty damn unappealing.

Shows like the Man in the High Castle: Welcome to the Multiverse

Now you don't need a knowledge of string theory and billions of dollars in funding to explore the multiverse-- you can just watch one of these shows, and let Hollywood explain it all to you.

Shows like The Handmaid's Tale: Political Dystopias

These shows imagine what life would be like under a fundamentalist dictatorship, Nazis, Russians, and occupying forces--makes the current political situation look almost palatable by comparison. Almost.

Shows Like Ripper Street: British Detectives of Yesteryear

History wasn't all frilly hats and leisurely carriage rides, it was also murders, thefts, and all sorts of nefarious yellow-toothed ne'er do wells. These shows tell the stories of the detectives who caught the baddies.

Shows Like Peaky Blinders: Period Shows for Dudes

Forget the emotional life of butlers and wind-swept moors. These gritty shows are all about sword-wielding soldiers and Victorian bad guys.

Shows like Man in the High Castle: Alternate History TV

There are countless dystopian future TV series, but these shows take things in a different direction by imagining what could have been different in the past--by and large things end up worse, so think of these as dystopian past series.

Shows like Case Histories: British Noir Detectives

World-weary detectives, cynical criminals, bleak settings, and British accents--what's not to like.
