Rings of Power is terrible.
 

 
I'm curious to see how you all feel about the show so far. People are praising it on Reddit, but I don't see what's so great about it.

I'm halfway through the 5th episode and I think I'm going to give up on the show entirely. I haven't enjoyed any of the episodes so far.

None of the characters are compelling. Galadriel is a Mary Sue. I'm all for strong female leads, as long as they are well-written, and Galadriel is the opposite. She manages to over power 3, heavily armored guards and lock them in a jail cell. That action sequence was so silly.

Then there is the poorly choreographed "f*ght" against multiple volunteers that was incredibly corny. Her dialogue doesn't make sense: "f*ght with your feet, not your hands".

The backstory is really good for LOTR/The Hobbit and what I'm into.

Why the elves and dwarves hate each other in Lord of the rings
Young Galadrial and Elrond character arc rn and how it illustrates why they are so different in Hobbit/LOTR
Mithril backstory
Humans selling out to survive
And more

It's a slow burn but it's pretty good show just for the lore.

Episode 5 was pretty weak (girl f*ghting scene was for the ladies lol) but its building for the next few episodes. Other episodes where dope to me and I actually like the action so far in it. I like the world building. I like all the characters. Like someone said it is better than House of Dragons. It is clean fun without house of dragon taboo subjects ie pedophilia, incest, s*xuality.

It is slow but we getting alot going on and its pretty ambitious.

show is awful to me, compared to house of dragon.

everything is moving so slow and none of the characters stand out. Thye fished in people with the 1st episode with action but there has barely been any since. The only character with an ounce of charisma is the dwarf prince. He's loyal to his people but also likes his friends and are willing to work things out. Everyone else is bland and 1 dimensional. Meteor guy is probably Gandalf, Halbrand is probably sauron.

Not entirely sure cause I've never learned swordmanship, but I'm pretty sure this is an allusion to the fact that the power in your swing comes from proper footing and not your arms or hands (as is the case in nearly any recreation that involves swinging or throwing). So, yeah, I can see where this actually does make sense.

pacing is really off, reminds me of american gods in that way, where episodes roll by and absolutely noting happens.

feels like theres this unbalance of world building up to this grand scale thats really never going to deliver.

That's what happens when white folks who have no culture other than stealing,Killing and Destroying plagiarised King Solomon and his ring that could control Demons.

Op show is filled with plot holes and house of dragons is better imo, if you know the LOTR lore you would be able to see it.
I've watched every episode and it's visual dope af but the script is trash

Was the her training them to f*ght scene her with the Númenóreans? Had to Google that to spell it but don't know why I still remember this but my friend basically described them to me while we were buzzed as lord of the rings space marines. So I've been putting off watching this to see if it was worth a watch because I'm not that deep on the lore but if they're taking some of the best warriors and turning them incompetent then I might pass

She reminded me of the movie Brave.

LOTR boring. HOTD boring. Hopefully, one or the other gets better.

I probably won't watch either until all the episodes are out.

I don't like HOTD either. It sucks because I was excited about both shows. I keep tuning in because I hope it gets better, but 5-6 episodes is more than enough of a chance to give before giving up.

sh*tty show if it wasnt lotr related.

The fact they are using lotr lore its even worse because they literally reject the essence of the lore, story, and characters.

Yea man this sh*t and Dragons are just boring. It’s just exposition dumping like 80% of the time.

It’s ok. But it’s def not terrible, that’s utter hyperbole. The production value alone makes it objectively better than terrible/horrible/awful. And Galadriel is an elf, not a Mary Sue. The choreography in those scenes could’ve been shot better but that doesn’t make her a Mary Sue. You’re sounding like those anti-woke hate-grifter chuds on YT.
