    IMDb Rating: 6.9/10 (over 321k votes)
    Release Year:2022
    Director:charlotte brandstrom
    Episodes: 8

    The Rings of Power was one of the best tv shows/Series of the year 2022.The Rings of Power isn’t a film about elves only but the harfoots, tiny joyous people that are predecessors of the hobbits, orcs, dwarves and humans. And each one of the characters presented on screen has their own well written story to make us care for them. Lord of the Ring trilogy gave us plenty of great female characters, none of them was quite allowed to spring into action as Galadriel does in the Rings of Power, where there’s no doubt she takes centre stage. The show is being released at the same time as House of the Dragon, the Targaryen-focused prequel to Game of Thrones, it’s impossible not to compare the two shows. While House of the Dragon has its merits, even one single shot of Rings of Power would clearly show that a lot more effort went into the production of the Lord of the Rings.
