The Wheel of Time, a series that receives more praise
The Rings of Power achieved record views upon release, yes, but no appreciation. Beyond the review-bombing that the series suffered before its release from part of the public, even the press reviews are pretty average. Indeed, on Rotten Tomatoes, The Rings of Power gets a rating average of 61/100 from the press (38/100 for the average public). It’s okay, but not up to expectations for such a massive project. Above all, this note makes pale figure next to an Amazon series released in November 2021, The Wheel of Time. Thanks to its rating of 81/100 on average in the press, and 59/100 on average for the publicthe series based on Robert Jordan’s novels seems to have pleased many more people.
