Why LOTR Sucks: Ground Already Covered
January 26, 2012
Frodo spots Gollum following them in the mines, the perfect occasion to have a conversation about a topic that has already been discussed earlier. Now would have been the perfect time to introduce that Gollum once carried the ring. Or perhaps allowed a couple of glimpses of him first, tease the mystery, and then explain that Bilbo got the ring from him. It works for both readers of the book and people completely new to the story.
It’s far better than having a conversation about something that has already been shown.
