    Can you believe it??? Amazon is creating a Fallout show...



    I have mixed feeling because most game to TV productions are pretty awful, but then again Rings of Power was Amazing!

    Seeing the Trailer makes me think this has been in production for a while... I love what I see so far!

    Agreed, I'm excited but also really nervous.

    Umm...have you actually READ The Silmarillion? I found Rings of Power to be rather distasteful, at least based on the previews. I supposed I should actually go watch at least one episode to see if I'm misjudging, though. :rolleys:

    I watched both seasons of 'The Wheel of Time' and I was really iffy about Season One, but I felt like they started hitting their stride in Season 2. One thing I finally realized with 'The Wheel of Time' though, was that I had to stop judging it by the books. If you constantly compare it to the books you'll be disappointed; there's a lot the changes, and some of it makes you go "uh, whut?". If you just take it on its own merits though, it's actually not too bad. Not as good as the books, IMO, but not too bad.

    Maybe I need to that with "Rings of Power"? Dunno.

    Well, again, the trailer looks pretty good, but we aren't actually seeing anything of the STORY. The cut showing the T60 armor and the reference to Vault 33 (a heretofore unknown vault) makes me suspect that it's probably set sometime around the Fallout '76 timeline. I haven't played F'76, so I don't have an informed opinion on that setting.

    I'm actually playing Fallout 76 at the moment... along with Borderlands 2, The Witcher 3 and Darksiders Genesis.
    I know, too many games!

    I tried to watch "The Wheel of Time" with my wife and I couldn't stand the bad dialog and acting. I couldn't even finish the first season. She continued to watch it but eventually gave up.

    So there is a chance Amazon could ruin Fallout for us...
