Hold up.... werewolves and vampires is in the Silmarillion?

On another note, them not being able to tell that part of the story is limiting the show IMO. This past episode wasn't great...lost a lot of the momentum they built with episode 3

Yea from what I remember of the little I read, plus some wiki sources both Morgoth and Sauron were in command of legions of orcs and trolls for the grunts, but the shock troops were werewolves and vampires, and they could both shapeshift into werewolves or vampires. They also had a bunch of dragons to command and the giant spiders, and also balrogs and easterlings :mjpls:

First age war tv show would be so dope but I guess the rights cost too much. Alot of shyt happens in the second age though so theres still potential... in the first age would be some Endgame level battles happening.

Oh one more thing breh, is the "giant" with the Harfoots an Istari or something else? Put it in spoilers for me please Im just feeling like that thread is spinning kinda slow

See this is the fukking movie/show we need. A bunch of elite elfs killing horror movie ghouls. Wonder why they aren't relinquishing the rights 🤔

It’s was mediocre to say the least.
Galadriel is the worst character in this show.

Read it at your own risk:
It’s pretty obvious by now that Halbrand is Sauron. It leaked a couple of months ago on reddit.
Episode 4 confirms this theory even more.



They think they're being clever having him mimic Aragorn from the films to throw people off but its dumb obvious...

This episode was the last for me...

110 pound Karen strong arming 4 armored Numenorean guards on her way to speak to the manager...Two of them literally walked they asses into the jail cell...:dead:

The South Park they took our jobs speech complete with Al-Pharazon acting like Trump...:heh:

Visuals, Arod-elf and the orcs aside, this is a total disaster...

At this point time in the show in I don't think we will be seeing her use her magic powers much in the books it was not intil the rings of powers were make when she start to use magic more openly :jbhmm:

again.. why are people comparing this and House of the Dragon? They are almost entirely a different genre. They both have "fantasy" elements and that's where the similarities stop..

british accents + british actors + british rural society + british feudal society + british (empire) landscapes everywhere

Man finally caught up on the last episode, was the best one yet imo and this show is incredible.

Probably preferred it because the Harfoots weren't in it :yeshrug:

Probably not because women need to be masculine with sword and shields to be strong according to modern Hollywood standards...

In the books at this time Galadriel is 2000 years old and had underwent training with Melian who was a maia (wizards like Gandalf)...

She has no use whatsoever for a sword and shield in the timeline this show take place which is why a lot of fans are pissed off...

When she receives a ring she becomes even more powerful, I believe in the third age she's the 4th most powerful being in Middle Earth...
