Jumped the orc.

The milking of the subject matter has reached beyond ridiculous levels at this point. 2 plus years to cover book 1 of Fellowship Of The Ring. At this rate, expect LOTR exploration to culminate no sooner than 2030.

The LOTRO babble at the end of each episode is both pointless and annoying. Silmfilm is another painful exercise, wherein the participants envision what would surely be a 200 hour long film adaptation of The Silmarillion.
