    "It's probably one of the most-watched TV series on Earth and it's actually a good show. If you compare it to GOT, there are a lot of things you can think of like the characters, the locations, and the imaginary world. So if you're an LOTR fan, you'll dig this"

    "It's a good show! Saw it on Netflix but i can't see lots of Lord of the Rings vibe. Except for the costumes. Still, I'm waiting for Amazon to come out with official release dates"
