“Nothing But Trailers” & the Joys of Thorin


I have been watching Richard as Thorin regularly on my HD flat screen TV. Oh, he’s glorious! And if you have AXS on your cable or satellite, you, too, could be listening to those dulcet tones sing the Misty Mountain song and study those expressive eyes as he speaks to Gandalf about the dangers of the mission.

AXS (formally known as HD Net) has a program called Nothing But Trailers.  And it is, well, nothing but trailers of upcoming movies. And right now, right in the middle of the half-hour program, is the trailer for The Hobbit.

I discovered it by happy accident one day (serendipity?) while flicking through the channels, and kept my eye out from then on. It dawned on me the other day that I could record said trailer on my DVR.  Eureka!!

Bored with the volleyball on the Olympics (not my fav sport to watch)? I click on Thorin. Stormy weather knocks out satellite signal? Doesn’t affect the DVR recordings. Click on Thorin!  Much better than watching on my computer. Flare up from IBS? Worried about Puddie? Cheers me up to know I can click on Thorin. And in a few months, I will see him in glorious 3D on the big ol’ whoppin’ movie screen . . . and hear him in “stereophonic sound.”

  1. Your “eureka” moment made me smile! The only thing I could do, not having satellite, was to burn the trailer onto dvd and now I can watch it on the big screen with the home theatre sound system. Thorin’s voice rumbling through the speakers gives me goosebumps. I can only imagine what the the full 3D movie plus Dolby (?) sound will do to me.

    • This was so easy and I had watched it two or three times before it struck me that I could RECORD it. I think I was just so ridiculously excited to be seeing it on the lovely TV screen with stereo I temporarily forgot about the DVR. LOL I hope I don’t go to pieces in that theatre. *blushes*
