In this episode, Dean and Alex explain what The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is and talk about some interesting things from the July 2022 issue of Empire magazine related to the show. We discuss its mega-budget, its casting diversity, and what Tolkien material it is working from; the relationship of Rings of Power to the Peter Jackson team’s films; and the competition between Amazon’s show and that other fantasy show in fall 2022. Finally, we talk about what really distinguishes Tolkien, that thing we all hope any adaptation will do its best to capture: the light and the hope within the darkness.

In the second half (starting at 30 mins in) we will summarize the history of Arda from the creation of the world to the end of the First Age, in order to set up our discussion of the Second Age (which Rings of Power is set in) in the following episodes. Dean summarizes what you need to know in 20 minutes, and Alex outdoes him by summarizing it in just FIVE.
