As we get through yet another Droughtlander, we look for other shows to watch. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is worth your time.

There is plenty to watch to get through Droughtlander. Amazon has finally brought us a series that has been five years in the making. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has debuted with the first two episodes, and there are many more to come. In fact, there are eight episodes to this season with another season already confirmed.

If you aren’t a fan of the books or the movies from the 1990s, don’t worry too much. I wasn’t quite into them, but I’ve found things I adore about the TV series—the harfoots are my favorites! If you are a fan of the original content, there are still some great elements added into this series, which is actually set thousands of years before the books.

What is The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power about?

The series is set in a time when elves are still grasping with the idea of their immortality. We get that when we see the friendship between Elrond and Durin (a dwarf). The different races of fantastical creatures sort of get along, although there is some animosity between a few of them.

There is also a type of hobbit living in Middle Earth. The harfoots are a nomadic species, and we get introduced to them through Nori. She finds The Stranger out in the woods and wants to help him, but is he all that friendly?

Then there’s the issue of the orcs returning. What can the elves do to save Middle Earth this time?

Why watch The Lord of the Rings during Droughtlander

There are a lot of reasons to check out this series. One of those is the beautiful graphics. I don’t quite know a series that has done the fantasy element to the story as well as this. Yes, it does make Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon look childish.

We even have a romance of sorts. It’s between two different races, and that is certainly going to bring a lot of problems for the two of them. Let’s not overlook the fact that Bronwyn seems to be hiding something.

One thing that got me right away was the music. It was only as I looked into the composer that I realized why. Bear McCreary has done the score for this series. If that’s not enough of a reason to get Outlander fans into the show, I don’t know what is!

dark. Next. 25 shows to watch on Netflix if you love Outlander
