    What a unique response to the prompt. So, will you be watching Rings of Power?

    • I have binge-watched the reviews of Season One… which more or less encompasses it. I’m intrigued to see if the writers can pull it out of the terrible response it has had… but that’s the writer in me 🙂

    I agree with Deanna; what a unique response to the prompt!! Also, enquiring minds what to know? Do you base your viewing choices on critics or do you eschew what they have to say and watch that which interests you and to which you will come to your own conclusions? 😉
