This show looks like absolute shit and is already pre-panned by critics and media alike despite a budget of $1 billion.

To put that into perspective a single episode of this show costs more than return of the king (a 3 hour+ movie) even accounting for inflation.

This show will flop, and prime video will lose a lot of investor confidence as a result.

If you actually loved Tolkien you'd despise this garbage multimedia franchise being built by Simon and Royd Tolkien to spite their family legacy. JRR's books were never meant to be adapted into film and Christopher Tolkien opposed this kind of horseshit to the bitter end for his father's sake.

It is not about everyone in the show being white. It is about fantasy show adhereing to its preexisting logic and setting. When triabalism, racism and prejudice are the core themes of the show, you can't just expect me to turn my brain off to the color of the characters.
Two examples
>corlys in hotd.
the actor is very good at his role, has very good performances in ep 1 and 2. But how in the fuck can I then take his daugter's seriously when she talks about being pure blooded valyrian? The source material states that they are pale people with silver hair, who ARE HEAVILY INTO INBREEDING. how in the fuck can there be a random black person inside that situation. IF THERE Where more black in old valeriya, why in the fuck haven't seen more?
It is just modern casting choices ruining the show, and these problems creep at the worst time possible. It is just globohomo leaking into the story at the poising the story and breaking my immersion.

>wheel of time.
this is one is fucking funny. The starting village is only supposed to have one race and one person with red hair. This is a huge plot point. But THE FUCKING CASTING looked like modern day london lmao. Later on you are supposed to care for the red head character's alienation on being different, I couldn't care less. BECAUSE THEY ALL DIDN't look related in the first place.

in fantasy, YOU NEED EXPLANATION FOr how people came to be and where they are from, especially in traditional conservative tribalistic societies. This is such a no brainers for anyone who lived outside of the west. Soi writers don't have any intergrity and insult the viewers with thier slop.

Ok, i'll grab this bait. It's not just a fantasy franchise, it's THE fantasy franchise. It had descriptions, every character had it's own background and physical description.

Niggers don’t care for fantasy media and don’t read Tolkein so it’s a financial disaster from the outset because their target audience is plainly not interested in the source material.

I'm a spicy and the show should keep to it's roots. Tolkien wanted to specifically create English myth and legend and that's what I'd want to see. If he wrote a story about a broader world where different human races mingled more that'd be different but he didn't.

This shit is American woke pandering bullshit and it is a hard jolt that takes people out of the setting when suddenly they're hit over the head with hamfisted diversity. And it's always blacks too. You never see other races so strongly pushed forward.
