The dwarves are possibly the best part of this show. Who else wants to see a dwarf scale a rock face? Galadriel gets some sense knocked into her head between those prosthetic ears. But do the writers have the sense to write the nuances that political allegory requires? Follow along Galadriel’s journey as the OG horse girl makes her way through this (still) very beautiful show.
Take a big gulp of elf juice before diving into episode three feedback. Lore-bombs are going off with the addition to show-only characters. When the entire show is based off of some appendices, you need to get creative. Want more lore? Check out the Lorehounds and get the inside scoop for all things Middle Earth.
Full bellies, rolling caravans, and epic horse riding for the ages. Between the great visuals, fully developed languages, and fun with the Harfoots, we’re ramping up to the halfway point of this season. We get a confusing glimpse of mean-Galadriel and an exciting look at what the Harfoots (Harfeet?) are up to. Want more lore? Check out the Lorehounds and get the inside scoop for all things Middle Earth.
We’re back to hear what you thought about the first two episodes of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, as well as whatever other feedback you have hidden under your barn flooring. Join us for the feedback podcast and stick around for the second half to hear the lore corner where David and John of The Lorehounds join us for deeper answers to select questions.
The depth of Tolkien’s colorful world continues to glow on the screen. We hear fully developed languages, get hints at the evil lurking in the shadows, and see the shining glory of Khazad-dum pre-Balrog rampage. The Bezos Bucks are paying off as sets, costumes, and effects dazzle. It seemed that HOTD and TROP would inevitably go head to head, and so far each is holding their ground.
A.Rondir and Jimafell are joining the fray against the spreading darkness of the Second Age. With gorgeous shots of a younger Middle-Earth and lore up to your eyeballs, we are pleased with this half a billion dollar show. Evil encroaches, romance blooms, and did we mention this show is beautiful?! Are you gonna be a rock and miss out, or are you going to be a boat and watch this show with us?
Season 3 is over and while the finale wasn’t exactly to our tastes, it was a pretty good season overall. We’re back for one final podcast to consider your thoughts before we close the book on this season.
Ouch. A lot of people avoided becoming chunky salsa, and we’re actually disappointed. The episode had to pack in A LOT of information to wrap up the season full of psychopaths and potential patricide. Between the smackdowns, The Deep’s stoic murder felt too tame and that’s when we know that The Boys has corrupted our brains. And, um, where did Stan Edgar go?! Next season looks like it might be a return to a similar place as Season 2.
What happens when you cross demented nursery rhymes and Empire Strikes Back? This episode of The Boys. With the members of the show living out different plot lines, it doesn’t quite feel like the boys are back in town. But that doesn’t stop the classic “Boys” antics of beating the living daylights out of each other. We’re seeing great characterization of Soldier Boy and the not so great use of the “Chris Pratt calming right hand” technique and we’re asking you to stop.
It’s a shocking thing to be witness to Herogasm, let me tell you. What’s more shocking still is to be witness to Herogasm yet somehow underwhelmed by its depravity. Even though the event itself disappointed, the episode did not. Join us for the podcast for a discussion of what went wrong and what went oh so right.
