The first installment of Peter Jackson’s original epic trilogy has migrated to Netflix and with it, the chance to be engrossed in all things Middle Earth once again. By now the story is well-known: hobbit finds valuable piece of jewelry, goes on a quest to destroy said piece of jewelry, makes friends with elves, dwarves, and a few humans, makes enemies of orcs, evil wizards, and Satan himself. But watching Frodo, Gandalf, Legolas, and the rest traverse the dangerous landscape of Middle Earth never gets old.
