The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

This pick of the week has never been in doubt, largely because it’s the most expensive series ever made with a reported price tag of $465 million. The epic is set thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’s « The Hobbit » and « Lord of the Rings » books and focuses primarily on the heroes of the Second Age of Middle-earth history. The show follows a cast of characters as they battle a re-emergence of evil. Prime Video has been promoting the series for months (no surprise considering how expensive it is) and audiences will finally be able to see if the steak is worth all the sizzle.

Awkwardness ensues as the siblings try to find their perfect match with other siblings while their own siblings watch every flirtatious move. Guess we finally know what reality TV looks like in 2022. The question is, can we look away?
