Hey, I just noticed all this talk of a TV series. How did I miss it all!?!?

Anyway, my two bits worth. Give me Tom Bombadil in all his glory. And all of you who don’t love and want Bombadil... well, as a severe - but somewhat inattentive - Moderator, I plan to hunt you all out and Ban you for a Life from Forumshire.

What Amarie has been doing while I haven’t been doing what respectable Moderators should have been doing all along - that is' Banning Any proposed Tolkien TV series and all talk of them! - I might never know. I suspect she has ducked her responsibilities! Gone soft. Amarie wasn’t always soft. I remember those days when she ruled Dark Planet with an iron fist!  Mad

A "Bring back Bombadil" campaign is needed. He was in my mind before I saw the "Fellowship" & was royally pee'd off that he wasn't in the films. I remember saying I was looking forward to seeing him & coming away wondering why he wasn't ! Its a mad world.

Maybe we should split Forumshire into two parts. The Purists and the ones who should be killed but we can’t so  let’s give them their own Forum.... [Once they are inside, we can lock the doors behind them]

I don’t know I want Jackson anywhere near Bombadil, mind... pale

Peejers had the Witches, one on each shoulder whispering delights & trinkets into his ear. He would no doubt have fucked it up. Boyens is as mad as a box of frogs, Walsh is a Hydra. All are in the wrong place in the wrong time. I cant help but think if Peejers was left alone to do manly things with manly men around him we might ( slim but ? ) might have got different films. When the Hobbshit came out it felt like he was poisoned beyond repair ! Hallucinating & running for an antidote !

No, PJ should not be let near Bombadil, but can you imagine what would have happened if Petty got his wish and David Lynch go this hands on Bombadil? affraid I really think the Northern Exposure folks need to do Bombadil.

I have an opinion which does not belong here at all on this particular thread, so, in true Forumshire tradition, I’ll go ahead and give it...

I think parts of the very early stages of The Hobbit (at Bag End) had real merit. El Toro, or whatever his name is, I think read The Hobbit and actually had a proper go at portraying Tolkien right.... I swear I can tell you what bits PJ and the Coven put in. They were unnecessary bits and not Tolkien at all.... as the film progressed, it got particularly horrible. I still haven’t even seen movie three. Movie two I saw once. Movie one I watched twice... but only because El Toro clearly did some of the earlier parts, no bull!

So, getting back to this thread, we need someone to give us a Bombadil like Tolkien described. It ain’t hard. It would work.
