Episode 39: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

The guys embark on an epic journey, perhaps the most epic journey in the history of cinema, with Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The imaginings of J.R.R. Tolkien were brought to life for a whole new generation of fans (the Bit Players included) in 2001, and the films still stand the test of time. Perhaps it’s the nature of the storytelling on display here, with Middle Earth as the setting for the ultimate tale of good and evil. The guys also prep themselves for a journey of this magnitude by picking their road trip essential items and their preference for the leader of their own Fellowship.
