The only things that bother me about Radagast are bird crap, stick insects and eye rolling. Azog is another matter [In reply to] Can't Post

They distorted too much of the powerful history of The Dwarves to accomodate Azog, and that rankles me still. Radagast and his bunny sled just fit in with the more child leaning Wondertale that The Hobbit is supposed to be. If you will, they mayhaps balaced the removal of a talking troll-purse with a Wizard's bunny sled, which is far less outrageous and silly if you think about it.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
