I think it's a great idea! As far as how it'll be devided, I'd say make it a weekly show, one hour long, perhaps covering half a chapter per show. This will allow the show to run for about 160 shows between the hobbit and LotR. That would give for about four seasons, and if all goes well, they could keep it up and do the Sil, the the unfinished tales, and the book of lost tales 1 and 2, and beyond. Who knows? One of my career options is directing, and I would definately do this type of thing id I do go into directing and if it's still not been done when I get there. One could easily get the funds to do at least the hobbit. By the time some one did this, me or another director, PJ's LotrR would be a thing of the past, and people like Elijah Wood would bee long gone! *grin* Pretty boy. *groan* EEK! Anyway, so now I'm inspired..oh boy, here I go.
