Amazon’s most expensive show ever got off to a rocky start.

A group of Amazon Prime customers hoping to see the streaming service’s gorgeous “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” came out on Thursday night when social media complained that only a second episode was available.

The first two episodes were supposed to air on Amazon starting at 9 p.m. ET, but Twitter was full of fans who said there was a problem.

One person tweeted shortly after the episode became available: “Prime Video is so bad, Episode 2 of Rings of Power is ready but Episode 1 isn’t.”

“Why do I have Episode 2 of Rings of Power available but Episode 1 doesn’t?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?” A third said. “Come on, I want my stabbing mare.”

“Only episode 2 has been released, which was before 9 pm,” complained another.

Another wrote with a screenshot of the problem, “So ticked – ready to watch The Rings of Power @PrimeVideo and I have no play option for episode 1 on my phone or TV.”

Yet another said: “My roommate is angrily yelling at her Alexa and demanding to know why episode 2 of Ring of Power is available and not episode 1.”

One fan even posted a Gollum meme begging, “Give us a chance, Precious. Give us a chance!”

The screenshot from the first episode read, “This episode is unavailable.”

It is unclear how widespread the problem was and it appears to have been fixed within an hour.

“The Rings of Power” is a prequel series set 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 show ever.
