  1. When you realise it will be approximately two years before season two of this Amazon ‘adaption’ of Lord of the Rings is presumably going to be released, Prime Video should be hoping that most viewers had forgotten season one ever existed and start the creative process again. One bonus for TV salesman is that the shows CGI imagery works reasonably well in UHD 4K and 8K, and at least one major TV manufacturer has taken up an agreement with Amazon Prime to use some of their Lord of the Rings footage in its ‘store mode’ setting.
