Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power TV Series

Is this just because he played a young Sean Bean in flashbacks in Game of Thrones? :smiley:

Still plugging away at this. There are some sections that are just such a bore to read (the setting out of who is where in Beleriand comes to mind) but enjoying coming across some of the references (how Galadriel’s brother died) and the parts involving Balrogs, dragons and other evil beasts.

Feel like I’ll forget 90% of names in a months time but I’d recommend giving it a go if anybody who is enjoying this show and wants the whole backstory. Definitely taken in a lot more than I did last time

Also, is it just me, but every time Isildur is on screen, I’m desperate for someone to ask him something and for him to turn and go “… No.”

Episode 6 :arrow_down: :arrow_down:
(negative views below so don’t bother reading if you liked this episode and don’t want to be annoyed by me! :smiley:)

Utter fucking twaddle. I’ve been really enjoying the series so far with some mild reservations but my goodness. Worst episode by far.
Cliche upon cliche compounded by nonsensical action and ridiculous, mistimed emotional beats.
The director should be arrested and sent to jail immediately for the horrendous use of dutch angles in this episode alone. Oh my lord.
Was really hoping they were going to kill off that dire little shit, Theo, but sadly he survived. I was actually shouting “kill him next!” during that one bit.
Looks like they’ve decided to set up a love triangle too. Yay. Super-duper. Wooooo. Yeah.

I won’t make another negative post about it here because it’s annoying when people wang on about how much they don’t like something isn’t it.
But I really didn’t like it and needed to get it off my chest. Apologies.

At least Morfydd Clark was in it a fair bit and the ending was undeniably epic (albeit fucking ridiculous)

Ha, curiosity got the better of me, unblurred, saw the first three words then rapidly blurred again.

I’ve not seen the episode yet, I shouldn’t even be in here, what am I doing.

Nah.

On episode 5 and this is so boring fuck me.

Sword fight in the square is so naff

Respectfully completely disagree. That was an epic hour of TV. Only negative was I spent the last 20 minutes shouting SOMEONE PLEASE CHECK THAT FUCKING SACK.

The dutch angles were hilarious, assumed they were a nod to PJ
