No need to ask why.

I think Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) is speaking with Elrond (Robert Aramayo) at about the 1-minute mark.

RE: Amazon Middle-earth TV Show News - Michael - July 28th, 2022

Fans gonna be fans and try to explain everything before they have all the facts. That's half the fun of being a fan, isn't it?


RE: Amazon Middle-earth TV Show News - Alvin Eriol - September 5th, 2022

Amazon is reportedly imposing a 72-hr delay for review on their website, of all comments about 'Rings of Power'.

Amazon states it is trying to filter out trolls and bots before the comments go live.

Suspicious fans and reviewers speculate it's actually just blocking criticism and unfavorable opinions in favor of happytalk. One person's critic is another's troll, right?  Dodgy


RE: Amazon Middle-earth TV Show News - Michael - September 14th, 2022

The racist response to the show has disappointed me, but I guess it was to be expected. People with less knowledge of Tolkien's stories than a swatted fly are asserting ownership over Middle-earth (and I'm not talking about Amazon's production staff).
