    The movies were great, but far from perfect. A TV series could allow proper pacing and unnecessary character trait changes.

    It's actually Tom Bombadil's Big Bombastic Variety Hour. Hobbit talent shows, elven singing competitions, and this week, the Mordorian all-Orc tabernacle choir.

    This would be great as a Silmarillion mini series.

    ^I agree. I would rather it be on a major network though because I don't want to sign up for these streaming services just to watch one or two shows.

    I think Bezos was actually directly involved in getting the rights for this one. He's a big Tolkien nerd iirc.

    Also, the rumored price for the rights is 200-250 million bucks. Alleged costs to produce a season are at 125-150 million.

    To put it in perspective, HBO passed on it because it was gonna be too expensive.

    HBO.

    I'll pass on a network TV cheese version of LoTR. Better off with it someone like Amazon or HBO's hands so it isn't focus grouped to death

    So... they'll be covering the Hobbit?
