At first I kind of enjoyed this series. It was fun to listen to Fr. Rodrick explore Middle-earth through the game, but as each episode goes by, Fr. R. just shows his ignorance of the series over and over. Has he EVER even read the books, much less opened one? You'd think the host of a LOTR podcast would know the subject matter...in one episode he references how Bilbo 'slays' Smaug, which is absolutely false...And I really can't get by his 'Tolkien expert' co-hosts, who can't even pronounce half the characters correctly...it really irks me. And stop spoiling the details of wonderful books that many people haven't even read! At least give people a warning! I've read them all, but I know that by giving away major plot points (of say Beren and Luthien) you ruin it for other people who have yet to!Fr. Roderick, I still enjoy your podcast but there are issues like this that I can't get past. Will you just STOP getting all your info from a Wiki page, and go read the books?
