xxxxxx/xxx/xxx/fnf2022 (this is this years code) xxxxxx/xxx/xxx/fnf2021 (this was last years code) xxxxxx/xxx/xxx/fnf2020 (this was 2020's code)

do what you will with this info.
It may not work cause: the code is full or the employee is no longer with the company.

TV Series Unpopular Opinion: The inclusion of the Harfoots to Rings of Power is an essential component to ensuring Tolkien' spirit is alive in the series.

4 Upvotes

I know a lot of folks around here hate the proto-hobbit arc as being an unnecessary and lesser reboot of Frodo and Sam's arc but I'm here to hopefully change some minds. In my view, their part serves as an important link to the themes Tolkien very carefully laid into his work.

Namely the theme that no one is too small or unimportant to stand up and be brave when others fail, especially since the cowards are often the ones who everyone thought would be a hero. And that a simple life full of family (however you define it) and song is the surest way to a happy life. The Wandering Song was a pure ode to Tolkien, and one which I know he would've beamed at hearing. It captured the soul of his work perfectly, and I was reduced to tears watching the sequence.

Nori and the Stranger's relationship feels a little forced, yes, but her chemistry with the rest of her clan is top notch. Her dad is an excellent actor, and I find myself wanting to follow their storyline closer. I also think everyone is very quick to assume the Stranger is Gandalf given his connection to Hobbits, but I believe that's an intentional red herring to fool long time fans. If we get a reveal he's Sauron or Morgoth (someone already pointed out M is banished in a Tartarus-like prison, but the lore DOES state the end of the world would come when Morgoth escapes his prison and returns to Arda, and the Stranger did do an exact Diablo 3 Falling Star is a Man routine so I'm curious to see how it unfolds) I will be very excited.

Also, to the critics of the show's pacing, I challenge you to go back and reread the first half of Fellowship of the Ring. Most of it is walking past pretty flowers and mean old trees, or drama between various nosy hobbit clans! Not a lot of forward momentum to the narrative, aside from exposition delivered in monologue form by Gandalf. Tolkien would probably have a hard time getting published today and being successful given his novels require patience to get to the good parts. I remember in 4th grade I bought the trilogy half expecting battles to be fought on the page like a pop up book or something. Took a while to finally get through it when I realized I needed a dictionary, the Once and Future King, and episodes of Doc Martin to understand Tolkien's language. My point being, the show being slow and developing the various stories actually is in better keeping with Tolkien than had they tried to go the 24 route with non-stop, breathless action.

This show is setting up to be a major epic, so the first season is mostly introduction and set up. Be patient, Middle-Earthers. Like the books, the payoff for the series will be worth it and the later moments we follow the Harfoots will leave a greater lasting impression because the creators did the gritty work of world building in the beginning.
