Really, really good. I love the Hobbit book, but the second movie was terrible. The edit is really well done and allows you to genuinely enjoy a great story.

Thank you for the edit, it was AMAZING! Just watched it with a few friends (casual lotr fans/original hobbit dislikers and one of them who had never seen the movies). At the end of each episode we were all surprised another hour had passed because of how engaging, cohesive and smooth the edits were. Really impressed.

The one who hadn't seen the originals didn't understand all the hate hobbit gets until we showed some clips from YouTube. She was engaged the whole time and didn't feel like she missed anything. She was happy that this was her introduction to the hobbit.

**SPOILERS**
The only minor confusion came at the end, it would have been nice to get some conclusion to what happened to the elves (did they get their jewels?) and what happened to the village people (did they get what they were promised?), but after some googling I found out those questions are not answered in the original either! So, as far as the original material allows, this edit is a superb experience, and we 110% enjoyed our time. You're doing the people's work.

I find myself with very little to say that hasn't already been said. A 'Hobbit Greatest Hits' collection with nixes the one nitpick I had about M4's version. Along with DonKamillo's edit of 'The Batman', this custom miniseries is elegantly done and I can't recommend it enough.

Jeez. This was a journey!

I've seen three edits of the Hobbit now and although they were all terrific I have to say this was my favorite version. The Hobbit lends itself so well to this episodic structure!

Not a single cut feels 'off' and everything flows greatly! I particularly liked the way Bard was handled, as well as the black arrow! It feels like every majoy event in the movies get's it's own episode. It's just terrific. 10/10. You do yourself a disservice by not watching this edit!

An excellent edit with very good pacing and editingI recommend the optional chapter 4.5 which fills in Gandalf’s whereabouts.
There were a few times the edits were a bit disorientating, and personally I would have liked more Smaug esp as it is the main protagonist, but this is the version I will watch going forward. Mad props and thanks to Stromboli for sharing his work.
