Watched the first 2 episodes of @primevideo‘S #Lord of the Rings series. Prepare to be blown away by the size and scope of #TheRingsofPower. I don’t know how they got around this, but they did a ‘Lord of the Rings’ show that feels like ‘Lord of the Rings’. pic.twitter.com/OTZjH41WTS

New Amazon #Lord of the Rings series #TheRingsOfPower impressive. The huge budget just flows off the screen, and it *feels* like something that would fit into Jackson movies. But even with such a vast world, it was never overwhelming and kept it focused. pic.twitter.com/2jBOyZtfSt

I watched the first 2 episodes of #Lord of the Rings #TheRingsOfPower. It’s beautiful to look at, and the scores are nice too. It also takes a while to get started, and there’s a LOT going on. But for fans of the movie, it will take you right back as soon as the movie begins.

Social media embargo applied to #Lord of the Rings #TheRingsofPower #LOTR, so: I watched the first 2 episodes. I was skeptical…but I was surprised. It’s really good! Very good! The picture and tone are just right. IMO, a great addition to the Tolkien world

Must watch first two episodes of #Lord of the Rings #TheRingsOfPower and it’s totally GORGEOUS. That being said, I’ve never seen a LOTR movie so I’m completely lost, which is frustrating considering this is a prequel. Still, I’m excited to continue watching. pic.twitter.com/TCiCziwAzv

I watched two episodes of #Lord of the Rings #RingsOfPower @primevideo. It lives up to its name – big in scope & storytelling with intricately detailed languages + a good amount of action. I can’t wait to see what happens next. #EmaHorvath can’t tell me. pic.twitter.com/DhOccVRHAL

But I highly recommend with the first two #RingsofPower overall sets. Each civilization they visit poses a new perspective and mythical cultural wonders. Straightforward plot mixed with starry eyes. #Lord of the Rings
