I enjoyed this fanedit immensely. Turning Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" into a miniseries worked well, and I applaud the well-thought intros/exits of each episode.

This fanedit retains quite a few subplots most other faneditors abandon, but EddieDean's goal was to really keep this as a prequel to Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings," and he accomplishes his goal very well. Most of the silliness/grotesque/out-of-place is removed, but we do catch a sizeable amount of the rise of Sauron in digestible pieces throughout the series.

I'm a huge fan of "The Battle of Five Edits" version of "The Hobbit," but this one was significantly different to merit its own place alongside that fanedit. The fact that it is distributed in 8 digestible bites makes this a fabulous multi-night viewing opportunity of roughly equal parts.
