The article is so short.

I want someone to ask anyone in authority there all the questions laid down in the recent rumor monger article about things like acquiring rights to The Silmarillion, etc.

So the first word I searched for, with minimal intuition, was "gritty." Lo and behold, my eyes rolled faster than Fred Flintstone's cavemobile wheels when they landed on three occurrences of the word. That's a lot of grit per pound of article for your money. There are few things more trite, trendy, cliché, desperate, and personally disappointing than shows that go "gritty." If I were watching it, this would help convince me to stop. Particularly since Amazon is charging me more and showing me ads to pay for it.
