The black elf dude (I think he may be Hispanic actually) is as handsome as Elrond isn't.
But Elrond has a personality, unlike the other guy so Elrond wins. (I assume he and his lady have a names but I have no idea what they are.)
(Also, why does Celebrimbor (sp?) look like a middle aged accountant?)
Bronwyn and Arondir. I looked it up because I was looking for the transcript so I could complain about that first episode where Arondir's friend tells him that Elf + Human is a bad idea. I thought I remembered he said it never happened... and I was going to point out that Elrond Half Elven is RIGHT THERE in the first episode too! But that's not what the script said. The friend said it never ended well- and I guess from an elven viewpoint, it never does. Aging and dying= bad news.
Anyway, with my one nit pick demolished by my own research, I'm left with whining, "But I don't like it!"
And this thought- maybe Galadriel's personality shifts a lot when she takes up the ring Nenya?
