I agree. If the idea of an enemy trying to enter Mordor with the aim of reaching Mt. Doom in order to destroy the One Ring had not occurred to Sauron himself, lowly fighting-orcs couldn't have been...

I found this wish list (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp07_QRIvy0) of things wanted in the new series. I'm at odds with a good deal of it, but I guess that's just more evidence (as if it were...

I guess my only comment there is to wonder what constitutes "good"? That'll be up to the individual.

My belief is that they won't be able to stop themselves "modernizing" the story universe in...

Both realms, though, had an incentive to remain friends beyond what may serve their respective peoples at a given moment.

I'd be surprised if the writers of a tv series had even done that. At most they might have watched the movies, and that's where their ideas about Tolkien will originate.

Exactly. I fear the end product will have nothing Tolkien remaining, save the name. That begs the question of why one uses the Tolkien association, then. Only one answer: money.
