‘The Rings of Power’ Is Jam-Packed With Storylines and It Is Exhausting

I can definitively say I have never watched anything with as many characters and as many storylines as The Rings of Power because yesterday’s episode was completely draining.

I’m going to just get this out of the way, the show isn’t bad. Far from it. It’s just…tedious. There are so many things happening in the latest episode that at times it’s hard to keep up, and that is saying something considering I’ve been doing my research and have been watching plenty of Youtube videos so that I would be able to understand the various storylines.

And yet despite its exhausting storyline, I’m still as invested as ever in this show. There are characters that I like more than others. The characters I’m most interested in right now through the series’ first three episodes are Nori, Elrond, Prince Durin, and his wife, Disa, Elendil, and Arondir. Their stories are not really interesting but their presence in the show is magnetic.

And that cliffhanger was so frustrating! Once again, I can’t wait to see what happens next week.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
