Amazon’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” series first episode debuted on its Prime Video streaming service on Saturday, and more than 25 million viewers worldwide on its first day, according to the company. The series is the most expensive television series of all time, based on the appendices of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” books.
Depending on the region and time zone that Prime subscribers were streaming from throughout the world, “The Rings of Power” by Amazon made its global debut in the first week of September. The first two episodes were released on Thursday and they made a huge noise among the viewers.
Amazon’s “Rings of Power” first season alone cost $465 million, the second season is already in production. The 23 series regulars are followed throughout Tolkien’s Middle-lesser-known earth’s Second Age. According to Amazon, it seems oddly appropriate that Tolkien’s works, which are among the best-known ever, have brought us to this happy moment.
Review bombing is a technique when malicious users flood a website with purposefully unfavorable reviews of a movie or television show. Amazon is delaying reviews of “The Rings of Power” for the first 72 hours after release. With the new process, reviews can be examined to see if a boat or troll was responsible for them.
