  1. Hey Alberos.
    Just wondering what your thoughts are on the upcoming Amazon LOTR tv show? I'm personally excited to see more stories from Tolkien become visualised (as long as they put the love and care into making it). I'm also not sure if the rights include the Silmarillion, which would make a great TV series.
    All the best,
    Dish
