I haven’t seen a post about this yet, so I’m starting one. Has anyone been watching the Rings of Power lately? I’ve been enjoying it a lot. It’s beautiful and it’s very “LOTR” and I think the vast majority of complaints about it are coming from super fans and racists.

For me it’s just nice to see a high fantasy show that isn’t chock full of nudity and rape and nonsense. I’m really having a good time watching this.

Yeah I am a fan but not a super fan. Like I’ve read the books, seen the original trilogy etc but I still find this show really enjoyable.

Honestly I like new Elrond but I agree that Galadriel is a little too crazy, but if you had only seen the movies and didn’t know the character in any other way I think she works just fine.

I am pretty much at your same level of Tolkien exposure and I feel the same way. I only remember Cate Blanchett from the movies basically, so I'm cool with her being interpreted as more hotheaded in her "youth"
