“Alternate-Universe Sci-Fi Channel Show Asks What Would Happen If Germany Lost War”

There may come a day when the entertainment mojo of The Onion fails, but it is not this day:

NEW MUNICH—The new Sci-Fi Channel series Fallen Axis, which eerily depicts a world in which Germany actually lost the Second World War, premiered Tuesday evening to high ratings in an alternate universe to our own.

The much-anticipated television event is said to be the most ambitious ever produced by the science-fiction-themed network, which is a subsidiary of the Aryan Broadcasting Company. According to the early response, audiences in the alternate realm have been riveted by the show’s vision of an inverted existence wherein a defeated Germany has been completely neutered by the Allied powers.

Alternate alternate history? *snort* There’s more. It’s funny.

    Too soon.

  • It looks like someone at The Onion has been reading Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle

    It’s one of the classic ways to present alternate history – for example, Winston Churchill’s If Lee had not Won the Battle of Gettysburg, Ward Moore’s Bring the Jubilee, and Samuel Carter’s If the North had Won the Civil War.

    Yes, that Winston Spencer Churchill.
