Sadly, YouTube hides dislike counts these days, but WTF @ comments! Is that a campaign from hardcore fans (who don't want the series)? cool

You can get that counter back with the extension which uses Youtube api to query that counter. Fans want series, just are upset about certain aspects, this time ironically also Twitter joined in big_smile

Comments are the same text in different languages:
“Evil is not able to create anything new, it can only distort and destroy what has been invented or made by the forces of good” - J.R.R. Tolkien

Don't care at all about LOTR, but the gist is that this is one more butchered story big_smile

Jackson saved money not hiring an editor tongue

Minus inflation, so the movies were probably still more expensive than this but nontheless it's pretty high. But Amazon spend $250 million alone for the rights to the produce the show, so there is atleast one reason why it's so high.

smile Not bad...

Spoiler

...I just wish they gave the cast something like a drone to focus on, to avoid small mistakes like at 0:30 (people looking in different directions when a single object crosses the sky). But maybe I'm the only one noticing this. big_smile

So long as there's lembas bread at elevenses somewhere I'll be happy with this show.  "Tea? Or maybe something a bit stronger?  I've got a few bottles of the old winyard left.  1296.  Very good year.  Almost as old as I am.  It was laid down by my father.  What say we open one, eh?"
