Some 'compression' would be a necessity. [In reply to] Can't Post

I very much doubt that one season of the television series would equate to one year of Aragorn's life, so some compression of events would be inevitable. How much would depend on the span to be covered. In Tolkien's legendarium, Aragorn spent about five years in the Wild, meeting and befriending Gandalf, before undertaking his great journeys and errantries. He entered Rohan and rode with King Thengel when Théoden was still a young boy. And from Rohan he journeyed to Gondor to serve under Ecthelion II to the displeasure of the Steward's son Denethor, culminating with leading a successful raid upon the Corsair Fleet at Umbar. All of this happens over the course of about twenty-nine years.

We don't know just how far afield Aragorn's travels took him during the period above, but Tolkien did write that after he left Gondor (and became betrothed to Arwen) Aragorn journeyed into lands of the distant East and the far South. These travels might have encompassed as much as another twenty years, not including such later events as the hunt for Gollum.

If the show is going to follow more than a fraction of Aragorn's early days then it will have to tackle those years in blocks, with each season encompassing a number of years. It certainly helps that as a Man of the West he does not visibly age much through all those years.
