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.

They have Elrond talk down to Galadriel??? She's literally his mother-in-law!

I didn't take it that way. They are old friends and he keeps trying to talk sense into her and talk her off the ledge. She talks down to him for being a young little brat who doesn't understand her pain if anything. I think because he looks older than her it may come off differently than intended.

I will say: people are right to criticize these elves who look too old. Galadriel and Arondir have the right look, but I don't think any of the rest do. They all look too old and ugly. Gil Galad maybe is an exception, maybe.
