Episode Date
S01E06 - Udûn

‘Tis an ill portent when Jimfiel deems another episode of TROP as a “Walking Dead” episode. But don’t worry, there are good things too! Galadriel is doing some bad guy stuff and Isildur seems like he’s vying for the role of Numenorean f-boi. A.Ronbrimbor ponders the questions, “Are the Numenoreans nearsighted? And which horse is Berek?” And yes, the show is still gorgeous.   Want more lore? Check out the Lorehounds and get the inside scoop for all things Middle Earth.  Got feedback?

Should epic fantasy shows have required homework? Well, not homework exactly, but should you need to do research to understand what’s going on? Is TROP suffering from the kind of writing that is coming for straight-to-streaming? Are we sure that there was only ONE meteor? And get an impromptu Age of Sail lesson from A.Ron.  Want more lore?

S01E05 - Partings

A.Rondork and Jimbella are here to tell you about the good moments and a few moments to grumble about. Some speeches come a bit short of Independence Day level of inspiration, but nothing comes close to the magic of the relationship between Elrond and Durin. When Galadriel isn’t writing checks she can’t cash, she and the other Elves seem to be operating in stark black and white. So where does that leave the characters?

Feedback is coming in from all ends of the spectrum. Is Galadriel just a hot-headed teen who needs to cool off with 1,000 years of jail time? Or is this a good portrayal of a young Galadriel who will become the powerful and wise Galadriel in the movies? And if you watch picture-in-picture, don’t do it around Jim and A.Ron. They may go feral.  Want more lore? Check out the Lorehounds and get the inside scoop for all things Middle Earth.  Got feedback? Send us a message at dugtoodeep@baldmove.com.

The dwarves are possibly the best part of this show. Who else wants to see a dwarf scale a rock face? Galadriel gets some sense knocked into her head between those prosthetic ears. But do the writers have the sense to write the nuances that political allegory requires? Follow along Galadriel’s journey as the OG horse girl makes her way through this (still) very beautiful show.

Full bellies, rolling caravans, and epic horse riding for the ages. Between the great visuals, fully developed languages, and fun with the Harfoots, we’re ramping up to the halfway point of this season. We get a confusing glimpse of mean-Galadriel and an exciting look at what the Harfoots (Harfeet?) are up to. Want more lore?

The depth of Tolkien’s colorful world continues to glow on the screen. We hear fully developed languages, get hints at the evil lurking in the shadows, and see the shining glory of Khazad-dum pre-Balrog rampage. The Bezos Bucks are paying off as sets, costumes, and effects dazzle. It seemed that HOTD and TROP would inevitably go head to head, and so far each is holding their ground.  Got feedback?

They were during the late 9th and early 10th centuries believed to be a three-part work by a single author, but more recent scholarship has determined that the works are of differing origins. Mythopoeia A poem by JRR Tolkien written in 1931. The word mythopoeia means myth-making, and the poem itself is largely seen as a sort of manifesto for Tolkien’s literary efforts.
