In order to be able to watch the TV series, you not only need a Prime Video membership, you also need the right app. If you don’t have a smart TV or want to upgrade your TV with an Alexa-enabled streaming box, Amazon is offering the Fire TV Stick on sale. The Fire TV Stick 4K is only available for a short time with a 50 percent discount for only 30 euros. Incidentally, the Amazon September offers will continue until next week, where gamers can also buy cheap monitors and SSDs.
The official trailers were judged suspiciously by the fans in advance. The community has already criticized the scenes shown in advance. The casting of the roles is met with criticism, as is the high-contrast lighting mood, at least in comparison to the Peter Jackson interpretation. Everyone can now find out for themselves whether the skepticism is justified by looking at the Amazon series.
Rings of Power is set in the Second Age
Since the Rings of Power series is set in the Second Age, the orcs are not yet as organized as they are in the film adaptations of Tolkien’s novels. That way the villains don’t wander through Middle-earth as an army. Amazon has paid special attention to Galadriel, as well as to a diverse cast. In addition to time for the characters to develop, action fans should also pay attention, after all, the director JA Bayona from Jurassic World is involved in the adaptation. Currently there are only the first two episodes, each of which lasts almost 60 minutes. More episodes will be available in the coming weeks.
