Lord, gimme strength. I've watched all the episodes of this show so far, and it's just a mess. The writing, the cliches (slow motion fighting! another king in exile!), whatever the hell Galadriel is doing, the piggy-wolves. Also, how did the producers spend eleventy-one zillion dollars on the show but it looks so much like a bad 80s fantasy flashback? Every time the Harfoots are on screen, aside from their being so ridiculously a stereotype of the big-trottin' Irish, I expect them to break into a chorus of "Safety Dance".
I suspect my biggest issue is that I know too much Tolkien.
