I am liking it, at the moment the cool thing to do is to compare it with House of the Dragons, I say in some aspects I like RoP more that HotD.Anybody watching the Rings of Power on Amazon? Thoughts?
I'm personally mixed about it from what I've seen so far. The show has some really great moments with a couple of interesting plotlines and some good characters but also has some equally terrible moments and contrived dialogue at times. And apparently they're deviating from the lore pretty awkwardly due to them not having the rights to the Silmarillon (The First Age stuff aka the cool parts). The effects and visuals are incredible though, almost blockbuster esque. Amazon's really gone all in on the show and it shows in terms of the production values. I love the genre and I hope it ends up being good eventually.
I am not one for the lore or not a reader, I have watched 1 time the lotr trilogy before and can't recollect every small thing. From my understanding the rights issue also tie their hands a lot.
The only thing I am getting annoyed is Morfyyd Clark(can't remember the correct spelling) is a step behind in some scenes, mostly her facial expressions.
