WATCHING THE HOBBIT WITH A TOLKIEN FAN... AND A NON-TOLKIEN FAN
Arthur: Wow! These shots of the dwarf city are GORGEOUS!
Arthur: And this dragon! Wow!
Sheldon: See? I told you you'd like it.
Arthur: Oh. Oh wait. Now Frodo's walking outside to get the mail. We're literally watching a Hobbit get his mail.
Sheldon: But what a set!
Arthur: And dwarves are picking out food from a pantry. We're watching dwarves pick food.
Sheldon: Wooo! Dwarves!
Arthur: Now they're having a belching contest.
Sheldon: It's everything I'd hoped... brought to life!
Arthur: That dwarf just offered Gandalf some chamomile tea. HOW AM I NOT ASLEEP RIGHT NOW?
Sheldon: I've waited years for this!
Arthur: We're now on the sixteenth cut-away shot of the fat dwarf eating something.
Arthur: Oh thank god: they're FINALLY on the road!
Sheldon: We're in for adventure NOW!
Arthur: Nope. Nope. Now it's a discussion of what to blow your nose with.
Arthur: Wait. What? Bilbo somehow found a phonebook. And... he's reading it to no one.
Sheldon: Go, Bilbo! Go!
Arthur: (horrified) He's starting with the A's.
Sheldon: None of this is indulgent! It's all too important to edit out! WOO!
