      It gets worse as it goes along. The series starts out watchable, and the production values stay high for a TV show, but the writing degenerates badly- by the final ep it's just painful to watch.
      As far as streaming IP cashgrabs go, it's better than, say, Picard, but that's about it.

        nope. it's very clear from the outset that it was made by people who have no idea how to structure a single episode let alone a whole season of television.
        that you didn't notice immediately just means you were temporarily too amazed to be watching a LOTR show to notice the problems.

          You've put me in the position of appearing like i'm defending the show when I'm really not, but the writing absolutely gets worse.
          The finale goes absolutely full moron with the way the story of Liberace creating the rings goes down. That was a new low in terms of writing compared to what had come before.

            it doesn't. it's the standard issue where problems are more apparent once things have to be paid off. until then your brain fills in the gaps with headcanon that MIGHT justify the time, make sense etc.

            its a common trick of the streaming era. recent example: Fallout. I don't mean to get on your case but if normies were better at spotting the signs early we'd get better TV.

              The time compression, laziness and general slapdashery of events in the finale was a new low. Sorry, you're simply wrong and being strangely egotistical about it.
              The problems were things like a character being written as very unintelligent (even more than what had gone before). That is not a problem with setup and payoff, that is an in the moment script issue. Nothing up to that point had locked them into that course.

            The finale was great, written by one of the best episodic TV writers in the industry. Go back and look at all the payoff it achieves to the early season setup while delivering on key dramatic beats that will be a cornerstone for the rest of the show.
            Being mad that Celebrimbore was portrayed as the boring side character he is is not a critique of writing

              It went beyond boring side-character: he looks like a Dwarf's scrotum, and meant to be Galadriel's much younger nephew. Small details in Tolkien's writing had a purpose but that's lost on the morons that made RoP.

        rings of power is it's own different beast entirely and not even jackson could save it now
        rings of power has awful dialogue, awful costumes, awful sets, is so rancid and hamfisted with it's minority miscasting that the tolkien scholar had to walk away because they said amazon was polluting the lore
        The hobbit is watchable with the multiple fan edits out there that remove the tauriel dwarf love arc, rings of power will never be watchable because it's a humiliation ritual

This show is demoralizing trash if you like any of tolkien's works and is just thinly veiled anti-white propaganda made by rabid feminists whose only mission it is to shit up a genre men liked, I mean the writing is all on the wall for what this type of media truly is
                There are areas in middle earth where you could write and have quality storylines to include people of color, but that's not what this is about, it's about subverting and ruining a beloved IP that they think has been for white people for way too long and that needs to change

        It isn't. The published Silmarillion is generally the amalgamation of multiple versions of different sources.
        The Children of Húrin for instance comes almost entirely from Tolkien's standalone version of the story, whilst the chapter in the Silmarillion is a more condensed account.
        The books Beren and Lúthien & Fall of Gondolin though are more of analytical books; which try to show the evolution of their respective tales across several sources.
