Amazon’s most expensive show ever seemed to get off to a rocky start.
A slew of Amazon Premier Customers hoping to watch the streaming service’s lavish “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power” when it releases Thursday night took to social media to complain that only the second episode was available.
The first two episodes were supposed to air on Amazon starting at 9 p.m. ET, but Twitter was filled with fans who said there was something wrong.
One person tweeted shortly after the episodes were supposed to be available: “Prime Video screwed up so much Rings of Power Episode 2 is out but Episode 1 is not.”
Another wrote, “Rings of power already off to a bad start… I guess I’m starting with episode 2????”
“Why do I have Rings of Power episode 2 available but not episode 1?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?” a third said. “GO I WANT MY WIFE STABBY.
“Only episode 2 came out which was even before 9pm,” complained another.
“So checked – ready to watch The Rings of Power @PrimeVideo and I don’t have a play option for Episode 1 on my phone or TV,” wrote another with a screenshot of the issue.
Yet another said: “My roommate is angrily yelling at his Alexa demanding to know why episode 2 of Rings of Power is up and not episode 1.”
One fan even posted a Gollum meme that begged, “Give us a chance, precious. Give us a chance!”
Screenshots of the first episode seemed to say “this the episode is not available.”
It’s unclear how widespread the issue was and it appears to have been fixed within an hour.
“The Rings of Power” is a prequel series that takes place before the events of “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”
The 8-episode season of “The Rings of Power” reportedly cost the company an estimated $715 million, making it the most expensive series of all time.
The series has already been renewed for a second season, with filming set to begin in October.
Amazon did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
