Currently, we have two questions asking about a comparison of the TV show, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, to its source material:
- How close is Amazon's 'The Rings of Power' to anything that existed in prior Tolkien works?
- What has appeared in Rings of Power that is outside Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, but still in Tolkien's writings?
The first question is currently open (has been closed and was reopened) while the second question is currently closed for being about future works. Currently, only three episodes out of the five-season TV show have been released so far, so I understand why the second question was closed for being about future works.
I don't get why the first question is open, though. It seems inconsistent with the treatment that the second question got. (When the first question was asked, only two episodes have been released.) They're both asking for a comparison of an in-progress TV show (which hasn't even reached half the episodes of its first season yet) to the source material.
