Over a year ago, I wrote a piece for The Path titled “Amazon’s Lord of the Rings Will Please No One”. Well, that pretty much happened. As our upcoming podcast on The Rings of Power makes clear, the show is an expensive vanity project marred by bad writing and a weak plot that seldom rises beyond the level of pleasant ( or not so pleasant) fan fiction. Expect a more intelligent version of much of the whining that has gripped the internet about this show on Wednesday! We guarantee you will come away from our podcast as happy as Galadriel in that batshit creepy slow mo horse closeup from episode 3 (you know the one).
