    I hear you. Its like they just made this season to say yeah a new season of Archer.

    Maybe its suppose to subtle humor and I am just not getting it. Either way show feels kinda dead.

    Amazon's LORD OF THE RINGS Adds Its First Castmember in Markella Kavenagh

    [​IMG]

    Australian actress Markella Kavenagh has been cast in Amazon's Lord of the Rings series, becoming the first person to sign onto the streamer's mega-budgeted adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's works.

    Details of her role are being kept under wraps, but she will play a character named Tyra on the show, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter. Amazon paid $250 million in 2017 for the rights to Lord of the Rings in a deal with the Tolkien estate, publisher HarperCollins and New Line, which released Peter Jackson's LOTR films.

    The show is set in Middle-earth's Second Age, when the titular Rings of Power were created and evil Lord Sauron came to power. JD Payne and Patrick McKay (Star Trek 4, Jungle Cruise) are developing the story, and J.A. Bayona (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) is set to direct the first two episodes. Bayona and producing partner Belén Atienza will also serve as executive producers.

    The series has a multi-season commitment from Amazon to air on its global Prime Video streaming platform, which had been actively searching for a show on the scale of Game of Thrones.

    Kavenagh's credits include Picnic at Hanging Rock, the BBC miniseries The Cry and Romper Stomper, a series sequel to the 1992 Eric Bana film. She is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment.

    I don't like the concept but Epix's Pennyworth is surprisingly really good (or at least the first episode). Opening theme reminded me of Sherlock.

    I'm equally hot and scared for this. The graphic novel and film were pretty damned perfect.
    Dead chuffed it's on HBO.

    Two episodes in and I'm LOVING this show.

    The dialogue alone is worth the price of admission.

    And personally, as someone who hasn't read Batman comics in a long time and doesn't know how deeply they delved into Alfred's backstory, I really like how he's being handled between Gotham and this show.

    Dude, The Boys is waaaaaay better than the comic of the same name.

    It's almost criminal how childishly such an awesome premise was handled in the comic. The show, however, is a breath of fresh air. It tackles many important and underlying issues, both real and those that would only affect godlike beings, in a way that is both shockingly graphic, and yet still maturely.

    This show is amazing.
