The Onion reports that in an alternate universe, the Aryan Broadcasting Company-owned Sci-Fi Channel is broadcasting Falling Axis, which portrays what would have happened if Germany had lost the war:
“Not only is Fallen Axis a chilling, what-if story of a world gone mad, it also asks a number of important questions about what Germany’s victory meant, and why its sacred mission was so critical to the fatherland and all of humankind,” said Hans von Winterstein, TV critic for the Deutsche-American Zeitung. “And Rolf Staal’s performance as former cowboy actor Henry Fonda II, the monstrous American president who attempts to spread his country’s insidious political and economic liberalism across the globe, will horrify even the most stoic among us.”
Producers said depicting the fictional, non-German-controlled America cost upwards of 40 million reichsmarks per episode, with much of the budget going toward recreating the cities of Washington, D.C. and New York exactly as they would have appeared before the famous tide-turning Luftwaffe strike of 1951. In addition, test audiences reported being impressed by the show’s painstaking portrayal of a topsy-turvy 2009 in which American big-band music plays on every radio, Mickey Mouse spouts pro-Semitic propaganda from every cinema screen, and dilution of the supreme race runs rampant.
The show is considered by many to be another boon to the Sci-Fi Channel’s fall schedule, which also includes Battlestar Gleichschaltung, a weekly drama about a starship crew that enforces the total coordination of intergalactic society and commerce, and the hit reality series Jew Hunters, in which a team of paranormal investigators scour banks and former Polish ghettos in search of Jewish spirits.
