ROP might end with 3 seasons

The backlash still hasn't gone away. Even after the first season is done, there are articles nitpicking the show to pieces. Some harsher than others. Also, the there is barely any social buzz about ROP. All though the show is liked by many, it hasn't been the success Amazon really wanted it to be.

I personally feel Amazon might end the show with 3 seasons. Next season will be about forging of the 16 other rings and War of Eregion which is the rumored two-part episodes.

Season 3 will be the downfall of Numenor and Amazon might increase the the amount of episodes to wrap the whole thing up. I think season 3 might have 12-14 episodes. The 5 first episodes will be the corruption of Numenor by Sauron. Then you just need 1-2 episodes of Numenor sinking in the sea. Two episodes will be enough to show the establishment of the exiled-realms. The rest of season will be the preparation that will lead to the season finale being the War of the Last Alliances and Isildur taking the One Ring.

Finrod's Resurrection and "Second Coming"?

As the Chinese communists liked to say about the inextinguishable Confucian patriarchy: "The centipede is dead but not stiff." This cultural/entertainment corpse may appear cold and dead on a slab at the morgue, but "no one really ever dies in fantasy/science-fiction." Just ask Mr Spock.

That's still three seasons too many in my opinion.

Then they should have done a better and more respectful job.

This is basically how I feel. I constantly nitpick while watching it, and though I am entertained by the show, there is no buzz.

I do hope they get to wrap the story up somewhat neatly though.

Some Wanderers ARE Truly Lost

I wanted to credit Tar Elenion for quoting "The Song of Aelfwine" in another thread which got me to analyzing the fourteen-line sonnet format (for the most part) employed in that poem: ababababcdcdcd. Moving away from the Elves and their hair styles, I got to thinking about this Rings of Impotence TV series and what three or more seasons of it might portend. That train of thought led to ...

Some Wanderers ARE Truly Lost

The proto-Hobbits wandered far
"None go off-trail! None left behind!"
(except the ones who do and are).
Creations of a muddled mind,
these "Harfoots," useless and bizarre,
invite the questions: "Why their kind?"
"How near rock bottom set the bar?"
"Script-writers' knickers in a bind?"
The female Frodo, female Sam;
the NAZGIRLS, wraiths without their rings;
befuddled Starman, "Who I am?";
red-herring Sauron/Gandalf things.
Eight episodes of TV spam
to which a rancid odor clings.
