Rumours are stirring regarding the details of the Lord of the Rings TV Series being produced by Amazon Studios, reports are suggesting that Amazon paid $1 Billion dollars for a 5 season commitment. I also heard that Jeff Bezos personally handled the negotiations.
There have also been rumours that Peter Jackson (Director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy) will be involved in the project!
All of these reports are early, but if true, it shows Amazon’s commitment to this project and should result in a TV series that will rival HBO’s Game of Thrones.
I for one am very interested to see what comes of this, I am having trouble imagining which route the series will take? Will they centre the 5 season’s around Frodo returning the Ring to Mordor or will this be entirely different from the books/movies?
It feels like forever since Westworld burst onto our screens in 2016, garnering 22 Emmy nominations, a 92% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, critical recognition worldwide, and swiftly becoming the first show to really give Game of Thrones a run for its money.
The trailer below should get you hyper up for the April 22nd, premier date, keep an eye out for a glimpse of Shogun World, the second theme park revealed at the end of season one.
After holding off for some time, I decided to finally watch “The Good Doctor” starring Freddie Highmore as a savant Doctor, three days ago. 3/4 of the way in and I can say that it’s done the job of entertaining/engaging me, and I’m definitely getting invested in the characters, but I am also getting the sense that the show is struggling to decide what type of medical drama it wants to be. Through the first 10 episodes I feel like I’m watching a variation of the show House (2004-2012), team based medical drama, where the main character is brilliant but different, the one nice difference is that “The Good Doctor” has done an excellent job of keeping Shawn (Freddie Highmore) human, making mistakes, and learning through his residency. I think that’s why I’m getting so attached to the character.
Supporting cast is good but I’m not, acting is on point, but sometimes I feel like I don’t believe them as Doctor’s which kind of pulls me out of the show. When watching House (2004-2012) I never questioned that the supporting cast were Doctor’s.
