All the fans who love to binge-watch fantasy adventure dramas are surely into the highly anticipated The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power. The makers of LOTR have finally released its first episode which is already trending all around social media. LOTR has been one of the most hyped and awaited projects of 2022, and now when it’s finally rolling our way, it is worth watching it. Is it as good as we expected it to be? Is it something one can miss watching or should watch it ASAP? In this LOTR Episode 1 review, we will tell how things are going until now. 

Before we get into the details of the episode, let us clear the title of this review. As we have already mentioned the series has a slow start. But it in no way means that it is not interesting enough. The fans who were waiting for LOTR’s release know already that the makers have planned to release this project in 50 long episodes. So, it was obvious and highly required to take time to start this super amazing journey. The first episode is slow only because it is important to draw a fine portrait to introduce every character well.

The LOTR focuses on a story based on Middle Earth’s second age. In the first episode, you will get to understand the basic structure and plot of the story, characters, and more necessary details. It is all that the first episode is about. But we can assure you the pilot episode which seems a bit slow is important to build the foundation of your understanding to enjoy the upcoming and more pivotal episodes. 

Categorically, LOTR is divided into a total of 4 storylines; Elves, Dwarves, Harfoots and Humans. Elven warrior Galadriel will be seen seeking revenge from the Sauron, half-Elven Elrond will seek friend Durin IV’s, Prince of Khazad-dûm – a Dwarven city – assistance in finding a solution to the impending doom lurking in the shadows, Harfoot Nori (Markella Kavenagh), who years for adventure outside her species’ close-knit ties and human Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi), who sniffs out a terrifying war in the making.

Apart from this, we have also been extremely astonished and impressed with the performances in this exciting series. Morfydd Clark who is leading the project is undoubtedly the best and has been the show stealer. She, in the role of Galadriel, balances emotions on screen and wins the audience.

Markella Kavenagh as Harfoot is another reason that makes LOTR a great watch. She will keep you entertained with light humor and required comedy. Other actors; Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur and Daniel Weyman are also very promising in their roles, but we believe their characters will flaunt better spark in the upcoming episodes.
