Same with wheel of time when it got negative reviews.

Isn't that one considered a dumpsterfire of an adaptation/show? I've not seen it myself though.

I saw all the initial hate the show got and thought it's just people who never read the book. I watched the show and it's absolutely garbage. I could see where a lot of their complaints were valid

Wheel of time was really bad. Production quality was bad. Acting wasn't great. They changed a good bit from the books and not in a way that makes sense. Sometimes I absolutely get why things are changed, but Wheel of Time wasn't defensible by any measure. It had the same production cost as the witcher netflex series (not that I think the witcher is perfect) and if you watch the two you'll wonder where the hell the WoT budget went.

Rings of Power at least has had good production quality. The acting, writing and setting feels very LotRs like. Continuality wise there's some issues and fans are going to be upset, but as a TV show it's not bad.

Probably because they took the source material that everyone loved and said “nah fuck this”

With the hatred some people are hellbent on spewing online, I would have disabled comments too. Let the show speak for itself.

Half of the comments on rottentomatoes is negative scoring followed by some gibberish, I'm not surprised they suspended reviews when people are bombing it mindlessly

I thought WoT was pretty good, although I’ve never read the books. My dad has read the books and he also thought it was good though.

You can't adapt WoT. It's way too grand and broad unless perhaps it's like over 5 big budget and long movies.

lol. Probably because they didn't sink a billion dollar investment into A League of Their Own.

Gotta protect that LOTR cash grab.

Wait why did a league of their own get review bombed? That's an old movie
