Prepare to be disappointed with SS-GB (particularly the weak ending) and look out for the excellent MITHC, Season 3
TIP -- MITHC very complex plot with lots of twists. Really worth binge watching.
(Personal opinion, of course)
Cheers, K.

Ah OK. Yes I do like MITHC very interesting storyline

OK. Maybe not. All that similar but when I was reading what Madcat said. MITHC was the first thing that came to mind

In both cases the Allies lose the war; but there the similarity ends.
I was hoping for such a lot from SS-GGB (after MITHC) hence the disappointment,
Cheers, K.

Haven't seen Man In The High Castle and, in fact, haven't even heard about it before now. Is it, or was it, on one of our DStv channels?

Default MITHC

I watched both seasons on Amazon Prime (UK).

But would be very surprised if MC did not air it at some point. Having said that, I can find no reference to it on DSTV. Strange.
Anyway, look out for it folks; it's a goodie!

Cheers K.

I see series 1 received critical acclaim and very good & high reviews - in the upper 90%s - but for season to it fell to the 60%s.

It has not aired on any dstv channel. Doubt if it ever would it's not like you can't get it here.

But one thing I must say SA Amazon and UK Amazon prime video. The difference is night and day. They have so much more interesting stuff
