    If you really like LOTR and the Silmarillion, I think you'll like it. I'm digging it so far.

    Good show so far, taking a while to tell the story though.

    yep

    The showrunners are doing the best with what they can work with, as Amazon has rights to only some parts of the Silmarillion.

    I also like the Orcs in this show

    ????

    That doesn't make sense

    It's one book. Basically from the beginning of the first age when Eru and the Valar created men, elves, orcs and the 5 Maiar (sorcerers) led by the fair Lady Melian. To the point where Isildur defeats Sauron but is unable to throw the ring into Mount Doom, to conclude the second age

    True story. My roommate was in the film school (or whatever it's called) at UNT. I'd often go with him to movie screenings. We went to see this show called, "Meet the Feebles". It was basically a very R rated muppets show. The director was there to talk about it and answer questions. Turns out it was Peter Jackson.

    Never heard of Morfyyd Clark as Galadriel. Perfect casting there, imo. She'll definitely be in more shows/movies.

    I like the violence if I’m being honest. Not as much ballet fighting as the original trilogy

    Who the is Halbrand? I was having a hard time following why Galadriel figured he was supposed to be king of the Southlands, but then I read that he's a made up character for the TV show. I assume he's going to be one of the ring bearers, and eventually a Nazgul?

    Without googling I'd say that's a solid guess

    Ok, itís really bad. Iíll still watch due to lack of options, but itís comically bad writing and dialogue. Will hang in there for the obvious reveals (Sauron, Gandalf, etc)

    Maybe it's fanboy in me but I'm still digging this show.

    I'm wondering tho how Elrond is supposed to go from geek librarian to bad ass warrior fighting next to Isildur

    I thought you said in the HotD thread that you hadn't watched GoT?

    That reveal at the end of the last episode. Like anyone didn't know that the Southlands was Mordor.

    To be fair, it picks up a little bit after they leave Numenor (which was just brutally boring). But yeah, this just feels like a lazy "check some boxes" prequel with a massive budget.
