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.

Its souless.

Yes! That's exactly what it feels like to me. It's soulless. It feels like the writers are just ticking off boxes and they dont really care about the characters. I have only seen 4 episodes so far, so maybe it gets better..idk Also, as a costume designer, I am offended by most of the costumes. They look so cheap und uninspired. They dont look like clothes the characters in this universe would wear but like costumes, which is imo shouldn't happen in such a high budget show.

Feels like it has more personality to me than either of the movie series did though. I can see what you are saying, but the show is the best Tolkien adaptation so far for me, except maybe the Hobbit cartoon from way back.

Why do you say that?

Despite high budget the costumes look cheap and plastic like. I don't feel the people who have done the series really love and care that much about the final product. For me its years behind than the quality of the films.
