    Well, knock off isn't really the right word. More like parody.

    Story was actually written by a 20 year old (winner of many literary awards) back in 2003 when the LotR trilogy was coming out in theaters. Hence, it is 100% parody of the Peter Jackson movies!

    B/c of the complexity of the story, it had never been produced as a TV series until now.

    Differences between LotR and Ice Fantasy:

    1. Aragorn's heirloom sword (that cut off Sauron's finger) = Deicide (Deity Cidal sword) in Ice Fantasy.

    2. Gandalf is the (Old) King of the Ice Tribe.

    3. Saruman is the King of the Fire Tribe.

    4. Frodo Baggins = Kasuo, prince of the Ice Tribe who is to inherit the throne.

    5. Samwise Gamgee = Ying Kong Shi, Kasuo's younger brother (ie. the "bromance" between Frodo and Sam)

    6. Aragorn/Strider = Li Luo, a female envoy of the immortals.

    7. Sauron = Yuan Ji, a nimbus/cloud like (evil) being who has lost his physical body.

    8. Smeagol/Gollum = does not appear in Ice Fantasy.

    9. Ice Fantasy also borrowed some story elements from other great writers: Woman who falls for a man only to discover he might be her brother, but then later on revealed that they aren't siblings after all; two men who fought over a girl, but neither ended up with her; some side characters love story of Tristan and Isolde caliber, etc.

    Note: Link to online HD episodes in Post #1 may experience slow bandwidth during busy times. Best to watch after 3PM Los Angeles time!

    Hmm, above site no longer allows you to stream nor download Ice Fantasy. There are many others out there that still work. Ex: KissAsian drama website that uses Google Video as the back-end...
