This is what happens

when your society had been ravaged by MTV and reality TV "culture" - or lack thereof - until it's been locked locked into a permanent state of arrested development:

"Hey, that girl just touched that's guy's hair........I guess they're Orcing!" Shocked "Gandy and Galadriel sitting in a tree, O-r-c-i-n-g", ETC and so on, and whatever.

BTW, I tried to point out this sort-of thing was happening all over the place just after the teaser came out, and several people dismissed it as "unworthy of discussion"; Meanwhile, get ready to hear conspiracy theories about the non-existent Gandriel "romance" for the next decade. Angelic

PS: Eric Wecks states in the article in question:

"I can imagine no reason the Galadriel I know from the books would ever touch Gandalf like that. More than that, I can imagine no reason the maia (demi-god) Gandalf would ever, ever look at any elf with the kind of need you can see in that clip. Uh-oh!"

Mr. Wecks doth protest too much, methinks. It seems much more likely that in fact it's Mr. Wecks who's concealing a massive man-crush on both Sir Ian and Ms. Blanchett, hmmmmm?

See, it's fun and easy to make a "revealing observation" when you've thrown fact and substance out of the window. Evil

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, with axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!
