When I went to university classes always began on a Tuesday, so that Tuesday/Thursday courses would have the same number of hours as Monday/Wednesday/Friday courses. T/TR courses usually ran 90 minutes and M/W/F courses usually ran 50 minutes and a one-day-a-week course would run 3 hours. Working in all of the breaks and whatnot, they came out about equal. Unless you had a monday-only course and then you usually had one less day (and by default, one less week) of class.
Jackson was the Producer--he didn't make the film, he organized funding for it.
He need to stay on the funding end of things. If he touches the director chair again, he should be executed. Worst ****ing director of all time. Tolkien got kicked down to hell because he cussed out god for letting Jackson touch his books.
