Watched the second episode of SHIELD. It was pretty blah. The two English nerds were annoying. Agent Coulson continues to be the best part of the show.
But I do trust Joss Whedon. He always starts out slow. If this can make it to the second season, it will probably be awesome.
The trailer to the Hobbit 2 looks pretty cool. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
What it isn't -- is the Hobbit.
Sorry, wrong tone, wrong pace.
I recently wrote a book that paralleled the events in the Hobbit -- a Cyberpunk adventure where instead of one "ring" to rule them all, it was one "flashdrive" to rule them all. I called Freedy Filkins: To Rule Them All. (Available on Smashwords and Amazon.)
Yes, I'm comparing my book to the movie. I have a very light touch, not heavy handed. The Hobbit in my memory had a very light touch. But maybe that's just me.
Like I said, I'm not putting down the movie -- just saying that the book is different. More than the usual difference.
