Mixed feelings... Or in Han Solo's words:

"I have a BAD feeling about this."

Apparently it's a "bridge series", covering the time between The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. But to me it seems more like milking the cow until the milk has dried out.

That's what I'm thinking.

So, it's going to be about the boyhoods of the four Hobbits; Primula and Drogo Baggins drowning in the Brandywine; Farmer Maggot siccing his dogs on Frodo that time he caught him stealing mushrooms; the capture and torture of Gollum in great detail; Arwen and Aragorn in puppy love; Denethor getting Boromir groomed for the Stewardship of Gondor, and dismissing Faramir because he likes Hobbits, Elves and Wizards; Saruman torturing Elves and hatching his Uruk-hai; Gandalf searching for the One Ring; Bilbo learning to hiss 'My Precioussssss' when he isn't being daddy to Frodo; Samwise and Rosie in puppy love; Shadowfax and Snowmane are foaled; Grima Wormtongue meets up with King Theoden...what did I forget?

If amazon tries to sex up lord of the rings to compete with game of thrones i will raise Tolkien from the dead myself to tell them to fuck off

(via anais-ninja-blog)


I wasn't even thinking of this.

I can't think of anything more boring than Hobbits enjoying their lives, and making a series out of it. I mean, we love the books because they got swept out of their comfort zone, right?
