Trivia

The song used over the end titles, 'Tomorrow Belongs To Me', was written by John Kander and Fred Ebb for the 1966 Broadway musical version of Cabaret. In the movie Cabaret (1972), it was 'sung' by an actor dressed as a member of the Hitler Youth (Oliver Collignon on-screen, but voice-dubbed by Mark Lambert). Because of this, many neo-Nazi groups, especially musicians and bands, mistake it for an original German National Socialist song. In fact, both Kander and Ebb (who died in 2004) are Jewish.

Goofs

In the first scene John and Helen are having a conversation in a room. Suddenly a nuclear detonation is seen through the window. An uproar is heard at the same time of the initial flash, then we hear a big thunder. Even if we consider the first noise as being not the direct noise from the explosion but some secondary effect of the radiation wave (which travels at the speed of light), the main thunder comes 6 seconds after the flash, therefore the detonation must be about 2 Km (1.24 miles) away: they would have been killed almost instantly. Given the apparent distance of the mushroom, the thunder would have been delayed by 60 seconds. See more »

Remarkable series
12 January 2017 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

First I want to point my disappointment in the audience and critics. This quite clever and important series cant be so underrated and under appreciated. Simply can not. There are flaws... I don't want to be too idealistic about something I like but even with all the flaws this series happened to be one of the better on the television... I don't recall any similar series was on TV. Great acting, fabulous visuals, oh and the constant tension... its so brilliant. What to say about premise other than its remarkable and with great potential for other season. Great spiritual significance, series of great didactic and historical potential... One advice from this modest viewer, watch this one and you ll certainly not regret that. Immerse yourself in that parallel universes and you ll find yourself illumined. Believe me.

Rating: 10/10 Great achievement. Cant wait for the third season.
