Region: Middle Earth

If I may give my two cents here: after 4 episodes, the only things that are bringing me back (aside from a desire to watch something set in Middle Earth, which I will always do) are the mysterious identities of Halbrand, meteor man, and Adar. Otherwise the show is kind of meh, although very pretty. Numenor and Khazad-dum are great, the entirely new stuff with the Harfoots and in the Southlands is good/ok.

Galadriel is an idiot and I am unfathomably disappointed in their decision to make her so brash and childish. And the treatment of the other elves as well, like Elrond is doubtful and unconvincing bag of milk, Celebrimbor is having a mid-life crisis and just needs to buy a corvette or something, while Gil-galad is just some bland politician.

If meteor man is Sauron I will stop watching the show.

6.5/10.
