'Man in the High Castle' Might Be Controversial — but the Time Traveling Aspect Baffled the Most

By

Set sometime after the end of WWII, The Man in the High Castle envisions an alternative timeline to history where the Axis — Germany, Italy, and Japan — came to power and subjugated the U.S. 

The past three seasons of the show amused fans and casual viewers alike with their sharp historical references, well-written plot lines and a depiction of technology that's reminiscent of the visual world of early 70s sci-fi. 

The one thing that left fans torn? The Man in the High Castle's time traveling element. 

Why is The Man in the High Castle's portrayal of time traveling so confusing?

The Amazon Prime series zooms in on the life story of Juliana Crane (Alexa Davalos), the lone time traveler blessed with the ability to hop in and out of different historical periods.

This special skill has been the subject of many heated debates among fans, some of whom vouch that what she does is best classified as time traveling, while others insisting on the notion that it is, in fact, moving freely between parallel universes.
