Alright everyone, gird your loins. There are people of color in The Rings of Power. There may be issues with the series but that's not one of them. Last time I checked, Amazon was blocking star reviews for the series. They come from IMDB which Amazon owns so that's interesting. I approve. Review bombing seems to be the new in thing. See also Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. Go against someone's perception of 'canon' and you're toast. Most of the time user reviews are worthless. Except when it's the opposite of this - audiences love it, critics hate it. That's usually a good sign.

And since we're talking LOTR and reviews, I had no idea there were so many people who read and completely understood The Silmarillion. Ok, sure I did. But seriously, get a life.

Regarding the multiocular 'O' —

Somewhere in the afterlife, an anonymous medieval scribe is settling back with a smug, satisfied smile on his countenance.

Is it just me, or does the Space Force anthem sound intentionally sinister? The mighty watchful eye... invisible front line... the space force from on high... It sounds almost satirical, like something from Futurama.

Very close lola - guess you've never seen Space Force on Netflix. It's a perfect fit. .🦨💩
