I'm beginning to fear what we may get is along the lines of the sort of historical fiction "set against the backdrop of the tumultuous Second Age, three young strangers battle to carve a foothold and find love in a world of war and strange wonders" ... or something like that.

{{ Dear Eru I hope not! Mad
Surely after the utter shitfest car-crash that was TH films they will know better than to make up their own stuff and try just sticking it into Tolkien.
I'm already afraid they will GoT it with over the top on screen violence and sex. The thought of sex scenes in Tolkien is somehow disturbing, like when Discovery decided what Star Trek really needed was some onscreen Klingon titty and sex scenes- no you just ruined what was good you fuckwits!!

{{ Well they seem very confident then!
Sadly I am not. Given the trend of modern tv to shoehorn social isues in as the main thing over plot and characters and narrative needs I think this will be a trainwreck. (talking of which Ive now seen the 1st epiode of Watchmen and the 1st epiosde of the BBC War of the Worlds- reveiws soon, but they dont give me hope for the state of current drama) }}

Oh wow, I missed the announcement on the previous page about Will Poulter co-starring in the show. What a silly casting! I mean, little baby Eustace all grown up? The boy from Son of Rambo? I don't know how I'll take him seriously.
