Amazog’s The Lhurrd of the Rangz has been out for a couple of days now (apparently), and like most of you, I just couldn’t give a toss. We’ve all got better things to do than watch this pile of steaming dogshit created by people who know nothing about The Master’s work, care nothing for the Legendarium, and do not have rights to create content based around the stuff that actually matters anyway.
It would appear that a VERY substantial part of the LotR fandom agrees with that sentiment, because Amazog has been busy desperately hiding and running away from the data concerning the utterly underwhelming performance of its “flagship” billion-dollar budget-busting bonanza of exceedingly well-polished dog-turds:
We can of course safely discount the opinions of the “professional reviewers”. They are bought-and-paid-for shills. The ordinary people, on the other hand, absolutely HATE this thing – those who have bothered to watch it, loathe it.
For those who do wish to find out just how bad this thing actually is, our man in the field, Gary Buechler, has forced himself to watch the first two episodes of We Haz RANGZ!!! and has hardly a kind word to say about it all:
Things are so bad for Amazog that they have been trying to stop people fro leaving reviews altogether. But that has not prevented anyone from noticing just how terrible this show is. They are tuning out in DROVES:
Plenty of Tolkien fans will find reasons to get worked up about all of this – and that is fair. McCabe and Vance have clearly taken enormous liberties with the canon – that’s putting it very charitably – and have completely ignored the basics of fantasy story-telling to create a world that is unrecognisable to anyone who read the books and/or watched the Peter Jackson trilogy.
It is fair to be annoyed, and even angry, about what has been done to The Master’s legendary work of Christian allegory fused with Scandinavian mythology. Most of us, though, would be well advised to obey the advice of Our Beloved and Dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Voxemort the Most Malevolent and Terrible, and simply ignore it.
That is actually the worst insult that we can pay to this hopeless pile of tedious drivel – just not bother watching it. Let it die on the vine.
My advice to you, therefore, is simple: do not concern yourself with downloading it, and do not invest any time in watching it, even just to hate on the series. You would be far better off investing that same amount of time in The Terminal List, which is ACTUALLY really freakin’ good – and, oddly enough, produced by Amazon Prime Studios as well. (It just goes to show that Amazog does hire competent actors, screenwriters, producers, directors, and so on – remember that this is the same studio that produces THE GRAND TOUR, and NO ONE around here thinks that is a waste of time and money.)
Amazog is going to suffer a BILLION-DOLLAR DISASTER with this one. Let them. It will be an abject lesson in the consequences of disrespecting the people who would have repaid them a thousandfold with respect, love, admiration, and MONEY if they had simply been treated with decency and courtesy.
There could not be a better example of getting woke and going broke, than to watch Jeff Bezosoy taking a swift kick in the blue-pills. It would be just too damn funny if, after that, this happens:
Lord, MAKE IT SO!
