I'm kind of annoyed at the idea of Peter Jackson having a large role in the TV series.  I don't think he did a bad job with LoTR but after 6 massively long movies in his style I was looking forward to someone else's take on the material.

If he's just a producer, it should be fine.  We might get something like the Evil Dead tv series where Raimi directed the pilot and is producer but allows other writers and directors to do their thing.

I hope he doesn't draw things out needlessly like The Hobbit.  Hobbit should have been one movie.

Agreed, although every one of the movies had its strong points and the last one was particularly good. They fell way short of the original trilogy; mind you, for me LOTR is the best trilogy in cinema history. I still remember how blown away the audience in our cinema was during the pre-title sequence in ‘Fellowship’

Articles coming out from various sources saying the first season of the Amazon Middle Earth series will focus on Aragorn in his younger days. Considering Aragorn is in his 80’s during LOTR, there is a lot of ground that could be covered. Early romance with Arwen and hanging with the elves? Or his days as a Ranger fighting in the northern wildlands.
