I loved the accents! [In reply to] Can't Post

I loved hearing them use "laddy". It made it feel more...family. ^_^

But I did have trouble understanding some of the words of the riddles when I first watched it. But it wasn't just Gollum, it was Bilbo too. On the second viewing, I was able to understand more. But it was never because of the accents. I watch a LOT of British shows, so I have no problem understanding what is being said. And it was only the riddles. I don't know why, but there is it.
