‘The Man In The High Castle’ and how Amazon can’t get their shit together

the_man_in_the_high_castle_putnamcover-578x828

 

Just watched the first (and to date, only one made afaik) episode of Amazon’s new show from their 2015 Pilot Season named “The Man In The High Castle”.  This was a good show, and I wish that I could talk more about it, but the entire experience was just incredibly mind boggling that a company the size of Amazon can’t get their shit together enough to make it easy to view and then properly discuss the show with other people outside of the limits of their own comment section.

1 – silverlight is necessary to view video on Amazon.  Yes, you can “temporarily” change over to flash, but in what universe that that make sense? I’m not going to install Microsoft’s bloated carcass of a streaming solution just to watch the one or two things that I manage to find on Amazon Prime Instant Streaming, which leads me to point 2…

2 – APISS* has a bad interface, not ‘slap your mama’ bad, but just bad enough that it feels like they’re intentionally making it difficult to search and view episodes and movies.  My primary point of contention here is that they lump in ALL their offerings for video, regardless of their APISS or something from their “pay too much to rent this” catalog.  Combine that with no viable solution for desktop support (Kodi, windows media center, et al) and it means digging out a keyboard and mouse to view anything on my main TV.  I do own one of those fancy pants smart TVs, but it’s back in my office, and again, the interface is horrible on it, so there’s no no joy in trying to discover content.

3 – NO trailers for any of their new shows, at least none that I can find in 5 minutes of googling.  Best results for “Man in the High Castle trailer” is a student made trailer that actually does a good job of it, but it’s not the show that I’m looking for.  I settled for a dust cover from the book that the series is being adapted from

4 – voting for pilot season is difficults.   If you were to go to the page for this show, where would you think you would vote this show in an attempt to indicate to Amazon that you’d like to see more episodes?  See where nearly 5,000 people have rated the show?  Nope, that’s not where you vote to have it selected for a full season.  As far as I can see, there simply is no link to the 2015 Pilot Season page where you have to fill out a survey per series to indicate to Amazon your enjoyment.  I’m pretty sure that Amazon will see both sections and be able to figure things out, but why split the votes off into two different sections like that?

My suggestions? Dump Silverlight, get a unified User Experience team that can specify and enforce application design standards across all devices and applications, then get this bad boy some actual apps for desktop users that are using a 10 foot interface.  Make some trailers and make it obvious to viewers how to vote for their favorite shows.  Obvious point is obvious, but these are all items that Netflix has encountered and risen above years ago.

This just reminded me of my recent experience trying to view APISS content on my android phone which I was at the hospital recently, what a clusterfuck that was.  I already had the Amazon App Store on my phone, so I searched for and installed the Amazon Prime Instant Streaming App, only for it to tell me I had to install yet another Amazon app, which as far as I can tell is just Amazon.com in app form.  It’s sole function is to give me alerts for things that I simply do not care about.

(teehee, APISS = Amazon Prime Instant Streaming Service.  Just made that up, right here, it was me, and it makes me giggle little a child.)

FIGHT THE CHAOS. OR HARNESS ITS POWER.
Centuries after Humanity first left Earth, all forms of life in the Milky Way have evolved toward an inward tranquility. But there has been a mutation. A mysterious organism barrels toward the surface of a lone, resource-rich planet known as Ecosystem 9, on a mission to consume all it encounters.

Grey Goo is a real-time strategy (RTS) game that combines classic strategy mechanics and a balanced combat system with an emphasis on large-scale decision-making. It puts you at the center of a tactical struggle for survival—and ultimately, control of Ecosystem 9.

Opening FMV is interesting. I look forward to buying it for $2 during the 2015 winter sale!

‘The Expanse’ follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

I’ve always thought of Thomas Jane as a A list actor, it’s weird to see him move to TV.

I’m back in the hospital with my mother, they just extibated her, so her breathing is all sorts of labored and sounding off.  Needless to say, I’m not going to be focusing on finding quality images and content to send your way, so I sure would appreciate your assistance.

Please submit some stuff while I’m deal with this?
