Okay, we’ve gotta talk about season one of Rings of Power. We had covered episodes 1 and 2 in our first discussion of “How to Watch A Movie (As A Christian),” but now that the season finale has aired, we felt it needed revisiting.
We ask the question of whether this series has left us satisfied or disappointed. And as PJ and Riley are LOTR nerds, where do they come out on season one? Does it live up to the hype? Or to the budget?
Sometimes stories disappoint; they don’t live up to their expectations. Why is that? And how are we supposed to think about it? And lastly, how does the Gospel story live up to its expectations? Does it disappoint, or does it live up to the hype? (Actually we don’t get to much spiritual discussion in this episode. I guess we were distracted.)
