  • I just got Amazon Prime not too long ago either, but their shows don't seem to compare to Netflix. Maybe I just need to try a few, but haven't heard much about any of them. The Man In The High Castle I've heard nice things about but don't think it is for me.

    For sure, not even close to Netflix...........but no one is.

    I definitely recommend Catastrophe, really funny and poignant. It's an elevated sitcom..............and it has Carrie Fisher, and everything's better with Carrie Fisher.

    Amazon getting multi season Lord of the Rings TV show, Tolkien Estate and Trust producing as well. I know they've been talking for awhile about getting something to compete with GOT.


    Something to compete with GoT.... which will probably be over by the time any LotR series starts airing.

  • They are doing a Prequel on Game of Thrones, that's what they will be competing with.

    They have 5 ideas they are putting together right now, most based of something historical we already know but not really any details.

    The Lord of the Rings is doomed to fail if they try to make a series off the original trilogy, how can you compete with what Peter Jackson did.

    Now there is a whole history and back story written about numerous characters they could build a story around. Elrond, Galadriel, Isildur, The first war, lots of stuff. Gandalf and the Wizards history is another route they could take.

    It won't.

    Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s original writings.”


    As a big Tolkein fan, I'm super excited for this. Amazon has just as much money, power and influence to throw behind this series as Netlfix and the premium channels do to make sure it's a stellar production worthy of the Tolkien name and reputation.

    And lord knows there's enough content, as you pointed out.

  • I’m looking forward to season 2 of The Grand Tour. I’m not a gear head but I love the stuff they do with cars and I’m a sucker for dry British humor.

    Right, the big thing for me is Tolkien Estate producing it, meaning they like their ideas. I read it'll be stories prior to Fellowship (though no mention of pre or post Hobbit). If Amazon really wanted to compete with the likes of $10 mil an episode GOT, they certainly have the cash to do it. I hope they bring in some really good writers/directors, a franchise like this deserves it.

    Well it means they like the big fat check Amazon gave them.

    But I will give the Tolkein Estate credit, my guess is they turn down 90% of the offers they receive for LOTR and Hobbit scripts, productions and merchandising. Because other than the video games and movie franchises every 10 years, you really don't see an over saturation of Tolkien content.
