If STARZ, HBO, or SHOWTIME were making a series on the Fall of Numenor and the subsequent Numenorean Kingdoms in Middle-Earth with Elendil and his sons as the centeral characters, how would you guys feel about that?
That would require superb writers, five tons of imagination to actually make up a series-style storyline and very patient audience. And money. I'm pessimistic.
I love the Nứmenórean history in Tolkien's writings, but much of it is only dramatic and/or epic on the written level, and might be quite pathetic to look at :/ (on the other hand, I thought the same of many LotR scenes, and some turned out to be quite popular in the movie).
