Tread Perilously: LOTR The Rings of Power: The Eye

tp1400-1Tread Perilously begins a month of prestige fantasy series with an episode of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power entitled “The Eye.”

In the wake of Orodruin’s eruption, Galadriel, Theo, Queen Regent Míriel, and Elendil attempt to make their way back to the Númenórean encampment on the edge of the Southlands. Will they find loved ones waiting for them there? Meanwhile in Khazad-Dûm, Durin and Elrond make one last impassioned plea to the king so the Elves can receive shipments of mithril. But when it falls on deaf ears, the prince takes matters into his own hands.

Erik and Justin break the “three year rule” to talk about the current golden age of fantasy television. They also try to outnerd themselves with role playing game experience and other knowledge. Opinions of sixties British rock are aired. Erik recalls a story from San Diego Comic-Con about Galadriel’s armor. Justin makes an interesting assessment of the show’s title theme. He also finds some great nicknames for the characters. Erik offers a few key corrections about the story. The pair debate how much the show wants to echo The Lord of the Rings films in terms of casting. Erik makes room for Glorfindel and Justin makes an attempt to find Sauron.
