As much as I enjoy “Party in the Shire”, it seems like Tom Bombadil’s theme (“Let Us Sing Together”) should have been a shoo-in for this show. They’ve probably already included it in a show the dim.distant past, but I wouldn’t have had a problem with them revisiting the track for this show.

Oh well, back to waiting for Mordor to download …
