Some of the Frame Narrative can be a spoiler for Season 22, Epi. 5. Action takes place off screen, but tune in 20 years from now and WOW! Jan 25, 2017

      A master casting list of all characters so that we don't miscast someone for a role in S2 that would be perfect for a different role in S8?

        Well we could But I'm not sure it would do it's job... an actor who seems good today might seem a bad choice in five years.

        Except he is already cast for Elrond, so no longer available.

        Feel free to make such a list!

        Oh man, Melkor singing "I Can Show You the World" (Aladdin) to the Noldor in Valmar, extolling the pleasures of Middle Earth.

      Scary part: After Season Two, the storylines begin to get complicated....

        Haha I'm re-listening to Fellowship of the Ring, and about 15% of my brain is in adaptation mode while it's playing. Tom Bombadil...

        They do, yes, but that is a bigger problem in Season 4 (where many years and disjointed storylines need to be covered) vs Season 3, where it's a few storylines in a compact timeline going straight through.

      There are five people on campus right now, and I have to wonder why I am one of them...

      One of my students told me that he was switching majors, I looked at him and said "So it is doomed". Do I need an intervention?

        Intervention? As far as I can see, you deserve a medal.

      We should have the same elves appear in the background of every important debate throughout the ages and see if anyone notices.

      When I cast my vote today, I swear I heard Mandos intone dramatically, "So it is doomed."

      No, the R's in JRR Tolkien do not stand for 'retcon' and 'revise'... it just seems that way...

      How does one say 'smartass' in Quenya... asking for a friend...

        Perhaps you just say 'Curumo' with a heavy load of sarcasm?

        No idea, but you can say "You are an ass" in Animalic by saying, "Dog nightingale woodpecker forty."

      All of Tolkien books are in storage, so if I make mistakes in my Tolkienology, be gentle... I'm working totally from memory

      Re-listening to the Silmarillion Seminar gives me some interesting insights as to how to look at this project...
      1. MithLuin
        MithLuin
        I think this project can definitely benefit from people taking a step back and considering the original story in new light :)

      When exactly do we have Feanor look at Melkor and say "Dracarys"? Oh, wait...

    Tolkien fan since my sister read the Hobbit to me when I was 5 years old. Although I love LOTR and the Hobbit, I still think that the depth of the Silmarillion makes it my favorite of all of Tolkien's works.
