I'll don my flak jacket as well... ;-)

I want a LOT of Thranduil in TABA and wanted more of him in DoS. From the moment I first saw him I didn't want him to leave the screen. LOL

IMO, we got wwwaaaayyyyyy too much T & L (my apologies to those who enjoyed those two and their story arcs). Now, I would have welcomed more Thranduil / Legolas interaction as they so need to explore the father / son dynamic. Sans Tauriel... I don't want Thranduil to waste any more dialogue on trivial and unrelated matters like how Legolas thought she fought well / is fond of her / how he won't sanction the match. I want to hear more about their views, their agreements and disagreements, the sitch in Mirkwood, etc.

I agree--those other two elves pale in comparison. With any luck, Thranduil will be the center-stage-elf in TABA (as he should be)!!!

Because I think there's a lot of T & L fans on this thread. Personally I'm a [friendly] lurker in that until Thranduil appeared my attitude toward elves was "eh". And as a Thorin Thrall if someone's going to dis the Mountain King they had better be something special, which I found Thranduil to be. Not that I wouldn't have laughed if Thorin head-butt Thranduil, but seriously Thranduil to me is the epitome of every elven king leader-of-the-wild-hunt folklore story I have ever read. The Fisher King indeed.

So while I don't have raging objections to Legolas and Tauriel (at the moment) there IS only a limited amount of screen time. So, I'll say it - to me these two pale in comparison. For me anyway.
Think Legolas in particular is suffering in comparison to his daddy. And while my attitude is there can NEVER be too much Thorin and dwarves, assuming there's going to be elves, I want lots and lots of Thranduil, and save T & L stuff for the EE version.

But I figure elf lovers by default have more right to say than anyone. On the other hand, for me, I'd rather see the Mirkwood elves than spend a lot of time at Dol Guldur.
