    I am, too. Maybe I just don't want to believe it of him; I don't know.

    Apparently, Amazon has secured the rights to make a Lord of the Rings series.

    15 years ago, this would have me excited.

    After seeing what was done to the Hobbit (hint... bad things), I'm not only leery, but also suffer from fatigue on the subject matter.

    GoT and others have proven that there are other compelling stories out there to tell. I get it's about making money and LOTR approaches Star Wars in terms of awareness, but I'd sure like to see a different story.

    Of course I don't have to watch it, but I will I'm sure. At least for a bit.

    Since this takes place before Fellowship is this all new content? I dont remember there being much story there...

    I mean... stuff happened and us nerds know of the timeline, but it wasn't fleshed out.

    Which means they'll have to make it up including the dialogue which can leave us with a hot mess much like the Hobbit.

    Even I was disappointed in the extra material they came up with for the Hobbit.

    The Tolkien universe is rich with history. Remember from the opening narration of the Fellowship movie that there are "two and half thousand years" between Isildur and Bilbo - and that's just the third age. There are so many stories they could do, ranging from the adventures of a young Aragorn to the downfall of Gondor after Isildur to an origin story of Elves or Dwarves or Orcs to the journeys of Gandalf or something entirely new within the framework of the Tolkien timeline. If they do it right (first trilogy) it will be a masterpiece. If not (second trilogy) it will be a trainwreck.

    Problem is that most of that timeframe is only an event and a year.

    Something like...

    TA 1972 Aranost arrives at Fornost

    ^ Completely made up but illustrates that nothing else is detailed.


    I had limitless faith in Jackson after the first trilogy coz other than a quibble or two, they nailed it better than I could have ever hoped.

    I have none now after what he did to the Hobbit and it was just as bad as the LOTR was great. It's unwatchable yet seems to be on every weekend.


    PJ won't likely be involved in this and I hope that the writers understand the flaws of the Hobbit and seek to do better.

    Exactly. The Lord of the Rings worked as a trilogy because the story was already fleshed out. Yes it deviated here and there but the majority was written and done so in such an in depth way that they really didnt need much help. The Hobbit was awful because they had a short story that got stretched so thin they had to figure out ways to make it interesting for 3 movies and it just didnt work.

    If they are going to just make up stories based on vague references in the Addendum at the end of LOTR it is going to be awful. I shudder to think what the dialogue alone will be like. (which is half the charm of Tolkiens writing)

    No, really. Denis Villeneuve has got this. He has said it's going to be nothing like the 1984 film and he wants to stick closely to the source material.

    After posting this a few days ago, guess what I ran across on cable this morning?

    Yep, Rustler's Rhapsody. Still funny.

    Gomorrah S3 has now started!

    S2 for Berlin Station and Exorcist have been great so far.

    Shameless isn't what it used to be, but Kevin getting consoled at the breast cancer support group was funny as hell.

    This new Fall Finale phenomena is interesting I guess. Watched both the Black List and How To Get Away With Murder fall finale's.

    The Black List was awesome. More answers coming that we've been waiting for. One of the best episodes ever.

    HTGAWM proves again it has no redeemable characters and those of us that watch it it's like crack.
