And so it begins...
If you do finally get motivated, I suggest you watch both episodes, back to back. They should have been a single two hour premier.I'm still on the fence. Have not watched yet. But every time I launch the Prime app, the trailer starts and it just does not grab me.
To both your comments...Second, I've read the Silmarilian and though my memory of that tome is sketchy I was thought that Sauron forged all the rings and tricked the three races into wearing them. Setting him up as a villain so early I can't see anyone taking them from him unless he's somehow taken control of the people that actually forge them.
In the first episode they were going from place to place so quickly at times I had to stop and google the location just to get my bearings.
In all fairness, this one is aimed at family, the other is about familyI like the fact that I don't feel the need to disinfect my brain after watching this fantasy medieval epic drama unlike another current fantasy medieval epic drama.
I'll answer again. Nothing's happened in the last 18 hours to make me change this post...However nobody has answered my question on if the numbers are spot on yet? I haven’t watched it yet so I have no idea!
I'm enjoying it. Well worth the weekly watch.
8, on my picky scale (I don't give out 9s & 10s cheaply). It started 7, but has really picked up the last 2-3 episodes.So whats your 0 to 10 rating?
I've been going back & forth on this. I'll think he is Sauron, then something happens and I'll go, nah can't be.Looks like Halbrand is a King without a country now...unless he's Sauron.
Part of the problem making a sequel is you know who lives or dies. Like In Better Call Saul, you knew certain characters had to live to be in Breaking Bad.I would normally assume Isildur is dead
What I meant (said poorly) is the way he was Sauron all season. We just missed it, or chose to overlook it. He never lied once. He often asked for forgiveness. He even apologized for killing her brother. But to her it seemed a generic "I'm sorry for your loss", but in hindsight, he was literally apologizing.Did I miss this?
Just to clarify, this is the way Toklien said it. But obviously, that's not the way this story is going, since the Dwarf & Men rings haven't been made yet.Sauron (in disguise) and Celebrimbor together made the 9 rings for men and 7 rings for dwarves before Celebrimbor made the 3 elf rings. Sauron never touched the 3, though they were made with the knowledge Sauron shared with Celebrimbor. After being 'discovered', Sauron snuck off to Mount Doom to make the 1 by himself. As soon as he put it on, the elves with the 3 knew it and removed and hid them immediately.
