“The Man in the High Castle” (Amazon, premieres Nov. 20) Set in 1962, this alternate-reality drama shows life in a former United States that fell to Germany and Japan in World War II. These ’60s don’t look like much fun. For starters: no rock-and-roll.
“Call the Midwife” (PBS, returns in 2016) On a more cheerful note, they’re still birthin’ babies in London’s East End, with increasing hints of modernization. Season 5 will pick up in 1961.
