Adaptation #109: And a Hobbit with the One Ring


In discussing the final installment of The Hobbit, the hosts get into a heated debate about where the film starts, but agree on many of the other aspects like the fantastic fight choreography and the over-done love story. Make sure you let us know what you thought of the film, the end of the series and our discussion in the comments!

*NOTE* This episode is unusually quiet because of some problems with the recording. We promise to do better next time.
