this is just ridiculous

I have to confess: I’m an Ewok fan Return of the Jedi. I have always been and always will be.Maybe it’s because I grew up watching the original Star Wars The trilogy and the tiny inhabitants of Endor are designed to appeal to children.

It’s also partly a matter of taste. I like cheering for my little man.i grew up reading Hobbit When Lord of the Ring and watching willow And in each of these stories, the little man faces impossible odds, just as the Ewoks did in their guerrilla warfare against the Empire.

This makes me a natural fan of Hafut Nomads ring of power, Regardless of their crueler habits. I love Nori and Poppy and this (mostly) cheerful little band of travelers.and i am very very interested A mysterious stranger and his identityAfter the show’s fifth episode, he’s more mysterious than ever.

We see him and Nori bond and she teaches him bits of her culture and tells him about migration and its dangers. indicates that you are at risk.

She tells him no, he’s a friend. he is helping As Harfoots progresses through a particularly spooky forest, he is attacked by three wolves (wolves look very strange in this show), A stranger intervenes and throws one of the charging beasts to the ground. He then strikes the earth with his arm, sending out a shockwave that blasts the wolves backwards, defeating their swift retreat.

The stranger’s arm is badly bruised, but knowing that he will help protect the tribe, and knowing that they have the means to do so, he gives the tribe Nori comes to tell him this and finds him with his arm in a puddle. Ice is forming along it and he appears to be in a trance. He speaks strange words, and the words get louder and louder. Nori foolishly places a hand on her arm and ice begins to spread over her hand. She yelled at him, begged, and horrified as he chanted louder and louder, completely oblivious to her existence.

Finally, the ice shatters and Nori tears her hands free, turns her tail around and runs. His hands and arms appear to be healing. This casts him in a more ominous light, but I’m still not into the Sauron theory. . he didn’t do anything to her. She puts her hand on him and the ice spreads, but that wasn’t his intention.

Brings us to these scary-looking characters:

I hear these are priestesses of Melkor (aka Morgoth) and part of a cult that pays homage to Sauron. This ties into the theory that Sauron and Gandalf got into a fight and Sauron was the winner, hurling the wizard to Earth with a fireball, causing his memory to be temporarily lost or confused. He found Istari and probably sent his servants to capture him. This could also work in the case of another wizard, like he’s one of the two blue wizards he’s never met before. Lord of the Ring.

In any case, some very fearsome hunters seem to be chasing the slow-moving Hafutt caravan. Basically, this whole story is going very well. I like and care about nori, poppies, and strangers. I’m very curious where all this goes.

And that’s the only part I still enjoy other than the highlight of this show, the friendship between Elrond and Durin. ring of power, Basically everything in Mithril is a little… off.

It seems that Elrond was not sent to the dwarves simply to ask them to help build Celebrimbor’s forge. Gil-galad, High King of the Elves, was actually playing a deeper game, a clever ruse, in hopes that Elrond would learn about Mithril and report back to him.

this is . . . very complicated! If Gil-galad and Celebrimbor know about Mithril, why don’t you talk to Elrond and ask him? The reason they need the precious ore is not just wanting it, but apparently the elves are losing their collective mojo. Some kind of corruption has set in and you must either leave Middle-earth for good soon or find a way to keep the elven light within you alive.

Mythril seems to be the answer to this puzzle. It’s not entirely clear how it all works (it’s magic!), but Gil-Galad continues to cement her status as one of the show’s biggest jerks, but then Elrond I urge you to break your oath to Durin. lying to him about his true mission. Instead, Elrond fesses Durin, and they have a nice heart-to-heart conversation like grown-ups.

Bronwyn, Girl Boss of Southland

I honestly don’t know what to say about this subplot. That’s really bad, it’s a shame. It had real potential. Bronwyn as a healer might make for a pretty cool adventure party along with Arondil as an elf archer and Theo as a budding rogue. . .

  • At this point, Theo is a very obnoxious character. The less we see him, the better.It’s funny that the hilt of the sword he found was actually the key, but I think he was cool just with his magic sword.
  • Why did they suddenly make Bronwyn the leader of Southland? What experience or qualifications does a healer woman lead soldiers to war? Why is she giving a speech about standing and fighting? Why is she saying things like ‘I know you’re not the king you’ve been waiting for’ to this little gathering of villagers? You are neither a fighter nor a leader. You’ve been lucky enough to kill one of his orcs.It took Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin an entire trilogy before returning to the Hobbiton and assuming the mantle of leader of their people who had to fight back against Saruman’s oppression. ,here ring of power No time for actual character development!
  • Indeed, half of those who remained went to bend the knee to Adder (as if no one but the ancient elves knew who Sauron was after he had been hidden for thousands of years. , the old man mistook it for Sauron). Adder, on the other hand, is fast becoming a comic book villain. He makes the Orc show his arm in the sun, which crackles and burns.The Orc now seems to have become a vampire.He also claims that nothing binds an oath like blood. No, so let the old man kill the young man. Buhahaha!
  • Arondir mostly just stands, except when he discovers that the hilt of the sword is actually the key. You’ll have a better time defending the heavily armed townspeople.

Overall, this storyline exemplifies the problem of pacing Ring of Power. The show has taken a big step forward while teetering, showing its first signs of orcs in one episode and then already heading into an all-out war with a fresh new villain. Skip all the development of and dive headlong into conflict.

These are exactly the same problems we have, but on a larger scale, in Numenor. . .

Galadriel, Great Galloping Girl Boss of Numenor

Did you know that Galadriel can barely get scratched in a one-handed swordfight with five inexperienced sailors?

she can do it perfectly. Queen Yasu!

See, I won’t pick Galadriel too much in this review. Summarize your impressions of the characters. She’s intolerable and irritable, overly serious and blunt, and completely wrong for this show, but whatever.

Númenor is a total mess. Again, the pacing is all over the place. Soon, Galadriel persuades the elves to not only help her, but to go to Southland with five ships and her 500 men. She was swimming across the ocean after she changed her mind about going to Valinor. Valinor was eventually rescued by Elendil, the man who led the loyal Numenoreans from the Isle of Doom and founded Gondor.

Yes, Galadriel and her new companion, Halbrand, king of the Southlands, were rescued in the middle of the sea by Aragorn’s great-great-great-great-grandfather and more. day to day When she returned home with him, Queen Regent Miriel was persuaded to go to war with an unknown enemy she had heard from a man she barely knew.

Great, great stuff here, Amazon.

Yeah, it sounds really silly when you type it, right? The level of coincidence involved is gnawing.

And despite all that momentum, very little time has actually been spent getting to know these people and the places themselves.Númenor is the incarnation of Generic Fantasy Metropolis. It’s very pretty indeed, but it lacks a sense of the actual place.He in the city’s waterways has one scene of a man rowing a boat, and the thing that I remember most is that I’ve been were some of the more elaborate Las Vegas casinos. Númenor feels like a Las Vegas casino.

Its characters are just as shallow. Isildur spends every second arguing with his friends and family on screen, and we don’t know why. He seems like a pretty nice guy, but boys are always mad at him.when he slipped the rope training Not only was he completely fired from the Navy, but his two best friends were also kicked out.In a sane world, this could end up being very angry at the sting that got them out. ring of power I mean these guys very Angry at Isildur. Elendil is also angry with his son and refuses to let him go to Southland.

So when Farazon’s son Kemen set the ship on fire, Isildur hid himself and was almost burned to death. He is against war (which is understandable) and has decided that the best way to handle it, uh, is to burn Numenor’s fleet.

Honestly, I’m getting annoyed just talking about all this. The entire Numenor subplot is a pain to watch. The characters are constantly arguing. No one but Halbrand is likable, and he’s almost a cliche. Isildur is fine, but he’s basically a blank slate. He is neither good nor bad. He is amazingly mediocre. He can do whatever you want.

Overall, this episode pretty much just turned the wheels. Harfoot’s plotline went smoothly, but after rushing through the final few episodes, everything else came to a halt. That leaves us with three, and I can’t imagine a satisfying conclusion that will get everyone excited for season 2, but I could be wrong. will write soon.
