Amazon Prime’s Huge ‘Lord of the Rings’ Bet Faces the Critics

As one of the richest men in history has ever known, former Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos can at least try and buy everything he wants, including a trip to space. But can he buy a hit TV show that could change the way people watch his streaming platform Amazon Prime Video?

Not necessarily, but he can buy the rights to JRR Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” series, one of the world’s most famous cultural properties, and hope for the best.

The problem here is that you can’t buy good taste, as some may try.
