Ok, urgent pub visit done and dusted - look I had to get Summer out
of the way so Clover could do a skype interview ok... don't you be
Ok, blurb ahoy -
In which the awooga button is tossed on the ground and comprehensively stomped on so that everyone can get comfy and chat about the uber-fantasy that is Lord of the Rings.
Taking our cue from the Festival In The Shire we talk about the great works from all kinds of angles - discussing them in terms scholarly, as fans having a good time sharing our experiences, and as readers just celebrating Middle Earth for it's depth, history and grandeur. We also talk a load of old rot, giggle stupidly, mis-quote, mis-understand and mis-appropriate other peoples thoughts and theories.
But, you know, with style.
It's a monster show, so we've had to cut out the adaptations section just to keep it to a reasonable length. I'm guessing that could make a part 3 all of it's own at some point.
