WGTC Radio #24 – Audio Commentary For The Animated “Hobbit” Film!

It’s time for another installment of WGTC Radio, the official podcast of We Got This Covered. Remember to subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link!

With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arriving in theatres on December 14th, Sean Chapman and I continue our trek through the lands of Middle Earth by offering a full-blown audio commentary on the 1977 animated Hobbit film by Rankin Bass! If you have never seen this camp children’s classic before, now is the perfect time! It is a fun and interesting interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic novel, and with this special audio commentary, you can listen to Sean and I discuss and dissect the film while you watch!

There are instructions in the episode to sync the podcast with the video, but if you don’t want to use the podcast as a commentary, you can always just listen to the episode on its own; while we react to events on screen, you can probably follow along if you do not have a copy of the movie. And if you just don’t care about Middle Earth at all, we talked for a little bit about other topics at the beginning of the episode, including recent movies and Far Cry 3.

Enjoy the show, and come back next week for our full review and discussion of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!
