What Season Two Can Improve On
With season one in the books, the showrunners are focused on the second season. There are a lot of stuff that can be improved and I expect the show to get better. With some experience under their belt, the pacing and writing will improve.
Sauron has been revealed and doesn’t have to hide in the shadows. That will lead to a better storyline and to bigger battles. The best episode of season one was Episode 6 and that was the battle that took up the whole episode. More scenes like that will make the show better. Those scenes need to be set up much faster so the fans are rewarded for watching the slower episodes.
While many things could have been done better, season one was still good. J.R.R. Tolkien’s work was adapted and new elements were added as well as the timeline of events moved around. Some fans will be angry at that but for a new story, that was necessary. We have Tolkien’s completed work and now are getting a new story that ties into the books.
There won’t be all the major characters from the Lord of the Rings but we are likely to see a few of them. Sauron has made his appearance and Gandalf will most likely be included. Once the show comes back, we will be following it episode by episode once again so you can get your Lord of the Rings content here!
