In the following hour-long spoiler special, Team Empire gather together to tackle a film that has produced approximately three decade's worth of devisive pub chat since its release last week, Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

So if you've watched the film and are keen to dissect it more, have a listen to this little lot, but not until you've wrapped your ears around our previous Hobbit spoiler special with writer/producer Philippa Boyens.

But spoilers regarding the plot of the upcoming movies was not expected and isn't fair on the viewers More

It just makes more sense with Azog being alive. He does look too CG though. More

I thought this was a spoiler podcast for the movie and not the book. I've not read the book and after listening to this I now know a few big plot points from the upcoming movies. More
