I couldn’t even get through the first season, I won’t be back for the second.

The first season was definitely a disappointment to me.

But I'll still struggle through the second. The LOTR fan in me is going to force me to watch til the bitter end.

Sauron/Annatar's awful wig lol

I enjoyed the first season a lot, but there was definitely room for improvement. The showrunners admitted they made some mistakes, but also that they listened to the feedback and will adjust going forward. So it'll be interesting to see how different it is from the first one.

The first season was painful. Galadriel was insufferable.

No, thanks.

Gandalf looks to be in an arid land of sorts. Harad? But what would he be doing there?

Delivering magical weapons to the global south as an act of Valarian imperialism probably

I wanted to like it, as it was such a beautiful production.

But for some reason, it couldn't hold my attention.

Why. Is. The. Lighting. So. DARK?!?

I can't even remember what happened in the first season.

That's the problem with many streaming shows. You're lucky if you get one season a year.

Because the CG isn't finished possibly, R9.

The comments section is good.

"how did you let Sauron slip into enemy lines a second time?!", "Well he wore a wig and some pointy fake ears completely undetectable"

"One wig to prank them all"

Them: bet you can't fool them again, Sauron: hold my wig

r8 Yes, it really was beautiful. I'll never forget that shot in the premiere when Galadriel gets frustrated with Elrond for a second and takes a step towards him – it suddenly cuts to a bird's-eye view of them both and there's a wave crashing into the cliffs, mirroring her temperament. So, so pretty.

Related to that scene was Elrond's look at Galadriel in the very final moments of the last episode, which might have been my favourite part of the whole first season. He saw her thirst for power even back then and he was wise before she was wise, even though she's held up as the wisest of them all by the time of The Hobbit.

r11 Yep, it's definitely because the CG is still being worked on. There are still more than three months to go, they'll be polishing that aspect right up until the premiere. What we're seeing here will look a lot better in the finished product. It's the same with the Furiosa movie.

r12 Those comments are an improvement over that Tolkien (mis)quote being spammed endlessly in Russian a couple of months before the war in Ukraine started when the first season teaser dropped. People pretended like it was the most normal thing in the world and wouldn't listen to those of us who were saying it was clearly an organised Russian trolling campaign to try and incite a race war in the US. I think seeing that black dwarf broke people's brains or something, there's really no other explanation.

Hopefully, it won’t be as inert as the first season.
