Hobbit Hanukkah

January 19, 2013 at 12:00pm • 1 hour 11 minutes • Wiki EntryAfter Dark

It's a two-part podcast about a three-part movie series spread across six discs based on a novel divided into three parts! We tackle Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, from its epic length to the perils of adapting such rich source material. Plus a spotter's guide to differentiating between Dwarfy, Elfy, Beardy, and Hobbits One through Four. And Glenn proves that he knows Elvish. The road goes ever on, and on, and on... (Part 1 of 2.)

Special guests Andy Ihnatko, Dan Moren, Glenn Fleishman, and John Siracusa.
