Progress on The Hobbit 1977 Review

Happy October to everyone who isn’t reviewing a bloody awful ’70s cartoon!  If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you might have heard that I didn’t get much sleep last night.  This is because the review I’m working on has been the most intense and time-consuming review I’ve written.  To make things worse, a street-lamp turned on outside my window just as I was ready to go to sleep.  I’ve been working almost non-stop on getting the review done as soon as possible so you can read my thoughts on that cartoon.  Luckily, I’ve gotten some better blinds for my window, and I expect I’ll have the article ready sometime in the next week.

In the meantime, please enjoy the highlights of my live-tweeting event…

Well, I hope that proved enjoyable.  It was all I had time to put together.  If not, don’t worry; I’ll have the real review published in not too long.  See you then.
