Arondir kills several orcs during the separate skirmishes. The second skirmish ends up being the traitorous humans with the actual orcs attacking the townspeople. The orcs killContinue reading “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Episode 6”

House of the Dragon Episode 4

“King of the Narrow Sea” is a weird episode of House of the Dragon. It’s the horniest episode of the show and also the one with the political intrigue.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power episodes 1 and 2

I was cautiously optimistic going into The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. I was unsure of what to expect other than some high fantasy and some much younger versions of characters from the novels/movies. I really only knew that Galadriel would be in the series, but I had no idea that ElrondContinue reading “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power episodes 1 and 2”

House of the Dragon episode 2

“The Rogue Prince” did jump forward from the events of the first episode but it was only a six-month jump, which led to it following up on many of the story threads from the previous episode. There’s a deep dive into some pretty intense horror in the episode, mostly focusing on body horror. The threatContinue reading “House of the Dragon episode 2”
