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.

I know people are hating it very much, but for me it's a pleasant show. I don't like shows that make me stressed. This one doesn't, it takes its time to build up, and there's no "nudity and rape and nonsense" as you say which is a huge plus. All the female characters are wonderful, with the exception of Galadriel - she really is acting like an impulsive unsubtle teenager for a being that has lived for hundreds of years.

Some weird yet funny scenes like that one where Galadriel was riding a horse. Looked like some shampoo ad xD

I only winced when that human not-a-king (I'm bad with names, sorry) said something like "Ladies, gents, and anonies" and everyone cheered. I was very confused at first but then figured out that this must be the LOTR-equivalent of "guys, gals, and non-binary pals". I hope I am wrong but am afraid I'm not.

Yes, exactly my complaint on Galadriel. She was born during the time of the trees, which is before the first age. She's thousands of years older than Gil-galad and Elrond as examples. Its been driving me crazy, but the show is enjoyable over all.

Thanks for this info! I have been wondering about her moody teenage antics and thinking, isn't she really, really old though?
