What should the main setting be for the new Amazon M-e TV series? Can't Post

To save money TV series use the same interior sets and exterior locations over and over again.

Rivendell [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, I imagine that that the House of Elrond might be a recurring set. Others we might see often later include Edoras and Minas Tirith, maybe Mithlond, Moria, Bree and/or Lothlorien.

Rivendell and a pub. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Last Homely House with it's safety, comforts, archives, and architecture would be a refuge and place of rejuvenation for friendly travelers and good-deed-doers to come back to in between adventures. The Hall of Fire would serve as a place to catch up on news. Wouldn't it be nice to have a musical part of the series putting the evolving story into song around the fire there? That would be very Tolkien and, as we saw with Pippin's song in ROTK, beautiful and engaging if done well.

The surrounding natural scenery would be spectacular: mountains, river, waterfalls, gardens. I still see Bilbo's look of longing in AUJ when he and the dwarves leave Rivendell.

And certainly some roadside inn somewhere "where everybody knows your name" - unless you don't want them to. More music in the background. More exchanges of information. More food and drink. And here there may be bad guys as well as good.

Eriador and Wilderland. [In reply to] Can't Post

If it is indeed set between TH and LotR, Eriador and Wilderland.

The mixture of emptiness, places of significance and wilderness is perfect.
