The first two episodes of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power debuted yesterday on Prime Video. Since the first screenings, critics have been favorably impressed with what they’ve seen, however the series’ arrival in streaming has been met with a somewhat controversial topic.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporterthe first two episodes of the series would suffer a major wave of bombing review – a practice often used by toxic fandoms – in order to discredit the overall product rating. Critics’ ratings are quite significant in that sense, with the show boasting an 83% approval rating which contrasts with the audience rating which currently sits at a meager 37%.

To overcome this problem Amazon has made the decision to suspend the rating of the series, also communicating that user comments will be suspended for approximately 72 hours. This provision is intended to ensure that these assessments are effective real opinions and not the fruit of free initiatives orchestrated by haters and trolls with the aim of damaging the product.

As widely anticipated in recent months, the plot of the series is based mainly on the appendices of The Lord of the Ringsand will be set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events of Peter Jackson’s film trilogy, which take place precisely in the Third Age.

Here we will meet the younger versions of some elves already well known to fans of the saga, including the young Galadriel played by the British actress Morfydd Clark and young Elrond played by Robert Aramayo. We will also see Sauron and witness the birth of the infamous rings he forged to enslave all the free people of Middle-earth.

The first two episodes of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power are currently available for viewing on Prime Video.
