    A version of Bugsy Malone set in the Shire. We all know who Fat Sam is.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    I am me. You are not me. You are you. If I was you, I wouldn't be me.
    If you were me, I'd be sad.But I wouldn't then be me because you'd be me so you wouldn't be me because I wasn't me because you were me but you couldn't be because I'd be a different me. I'd rather be any kind of bird (apart from a goose) than be you because to be you I'd have to not be me which I couldn't do unless someone else was me but then they would be you aswell so there would still be no me. They would be you because I was you so to restore balance you would have to be me and them meaning all three of us would become one continously the same. That would be very bad.

    I had to google it but now I know that Reading Rainbow was an American TV show about children's books hosted by Levar Burton (that was a surprise to me!).
    Did it ever feature the Hobbit?

    Bilbo is a good choice for a host, but I think it could also be great fun when old Tom would do it.

    The One Ring Theory: a show about a group of hobbits that live in an underground apartment complex somewhere near the Grey Havens. Some of the male hobbits, who have varying social skills (rated 0-5 out of 10) spend their working hours wondering how magic works and how to make magical items. The rest of the time they spend wondering how to meet girls, playing games, eating take-away lembas, and using communication devices such as palantirs. They study and work at GHALTECH, the Grey Havens Advanced Light Technolgy Institute. Meanwhile a dumb blond female hobbit (who can't tell a palantir from a Pelagir marine and who lives nearby) makes fun of them all. She has a high level of emotional intelligence (and not incidentally, a nice looking chest), so she is able to relate to ordinary people better. The show makes frequent references to other shows and super heroes, such as Evenstar Trek, Spider Bombodil, and the Green Elf.

    Actually under-rated idea. House Menedilannister, with Tyrramir the dwarf, Boraime the handsome and Denewin the Handward.

    House Starkathorn sends the heir Aradard south to assist at King's Tirith, but he is outwitted by Petyr Prince of Dol Eyrie and the misunderstood Varys Wormtongue.

    But we'd have Sean Bean's character dying! Again!
    I would rather have a memory that is fair but unfinished than one that goes on to a grievous end.

    I never shed a tear when I took a sword to the jaw on the Faeroes last Saturday and sprayed blood everywhere.



    I do now...

    Back in the global LOTR-franchise company HQ...

    - Boss, what about an animated tv series based on the Silmarillion?

    - Name?

    - The Silmarillion!!

    - (snubs)

    - The Silmarillion Wars!!!

    - Hmm?

    - LOTR Wars: The Silmarillion Wars!!!!

    - There, that's it. Exactly what makes those geeks drop their pants. I like it... Visuals?

    - Something like this. Wait a second... yup, there it iiis... sorry!... here you go:
    folder with visuals
    ... of course we'd have to change their outfits a little and also rewrite that script from that J.R. Tolskien. It has some rather tedious parts with no action, banter or romance at all, from what I've been told by our guys.

    - Yes, sure sure. (mumbling to himself and shaking his head) God almighty, we're supposed to make a dollar - and I have to try an get milk from that dry tit of a book.

    - ... we're creating the characters to be flat and catchy, often funny, melodramatic at times and quirky...

    - Fine, fine, the usual - Get on with it! Will you, damnit!

    - Well... that's it actually. I've crunshed the numbers. We can actually make this really cheap.

    - YEAH! That's a movie I like!

    - Boss, it's an animated series.

    - Whatever.

    Very funny + rep

    But also a bit to close for comfort to what actually could happen, if they had the necessary rights to "adapt" the Silmarillion for television.

    AFAIK they don't, which is quite a relief.

    Though have to say I always found a quality animated series the most reasonable solution to an adaptation for Silmarillion

    I would like to see a REAL Hobbit film, and also a film based on Frodo going to mount doom to destroy the two utterly despicable films they have made so far....

    If it were quality with good art design that captures that special Middle-earth atmosphere of Tolkiens books, then I believe animated movies/series are far better than normal productions. For a start you have no (famous) actors that take away attention from the actual characters. I never really liked the Peter Jackson LOTR movies, but the new Hobbit movies are simply crasy trash. They're fun to watch, but don't have much to do with Tolkien imo.

    Last scene, mount doom, Frodo above lava --> A little bearded Peter Jackson surprise-attacks Frodo, kicks him in the balls, grabs the two movies and makes a dash. Gollum comes out of nowhere and trips up PJ, who falls into the lava with the two movies. They dissolve. Frodo and Gollum high-five. Gollum: "At last he's dead. I still feel used and unclean." Frodo: "Me too, Gollum. Me too. But it's all over now. He's gone."

    I really do need to get back to writing my Hobbit parodies, my whole plan was to have PJ as the guy who Beorn crushes at the Battle of the Five Armies...

    Yes, you really should. But if you do, don't provide us with such a big spoiler.

    Yes that would be an achievement.
    However I meant it precisely as I wrote. I would welcome a new (Hobbit) parody written by you. IIRC your previous ones are full of hilarious twists which would not nearly have been as funny would they have been "spoiled".

    But, although I'm pleasantly surprised that my old thread has come back to life (for now), it's probably best to at least try to return somewhat to the topic.
