The Lord of the Rings is a wildly popular fantasy trilogy, written by J.R.R. Tolkein. Heroes sometimes makes reference to the series.

About

The Lord of the Rings concerns the inhabitants of Middle Earth, including Hobbits Frodo, Sam, and Bilbo, Wizard Gandalf, Dwarf Gimli, Elves Legolas and Galadriel, and the Men Aragorn and Boromir. The bulk of the story involves Frodo's journey and quest to destroy the One Ring in the land of Mordor, as the evil Sauron attempts reclaim the Ring as his own.

The three books in the trilogy are The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Tolkein wrote other works (such as The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion) which take place in the same universe as The Lord of the Rings. Beginning in 2001, filmmaker Peter Jackson famously and ambitiously released The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, based on Tolkein's books.
