Default Hobbit question

If someone hasn't seen the Hobbit Trilogy, is the Theatrical set perfectly acceptable or should they skip straight to the Extended versions?

If you only want the films and are not brothered about Extras and the 3D versions then I would say this set if fine. I have both Extended and Theatrical.

I might be worth picking this set and if you enjoy the films then going for the Extended cuts later.

The extended cuts are a massive improvement over the theatrical versions, & the 27+ hours of extras certainly give you a much better appreciation of the films.

If nothing else, I was finally able to discern which dwarf was which.

You're a third of the way to the extended set. Just stump up the extra 20 quid

Extended all the way. The only downside is the horrific song by the Goblin King in Unexpected Journey.
"Still in all, every night we does the tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from... but most of all we 'members the man that finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home."
