    Just watched this, enjoyed it. I get the bitching about the timeline and retconning stuff to make it fit. Must be difficult to have to write prequel stuff to a world, when you didn't plan on it. Not everyone can be GRRM in that regard. Everyone loves the callbacks to the HP series, you want to give them some references to the well known material, its like mentioning Gotham City in a Superman movie. Also Jude Law is so dreamy.

    I have decided that I haw the host of potterless. The pod is solid but he as a person sucks. 10 points to the house of the person who is also listening that can guess what moment caused me to make this decision.

    Hint: not politics

    Potterless? I think the dude is kind of a dork, but I enjoy the discussions. It kind of sucks because he knows just enough through the zeitgeist that he's not really ignorant. He knows Snape kills DD which sucks.

    I burn through a bunch of eps at a time then get burnt out. I think Im halfway through Half-Blood Prince. Will pick it up again.

    Is it related to HP or unrelated.

    That he flipped his scantron on a guy who was cheating off of him in HS to fuck him over and then in the same episode said he didn't drink until he turned 21 because it was against the rules.

    Obviously the guy who would remind the teacher she forgot to assign homework.

    Look, the guy didn't discover Harry Potter until he was in his mid-20's or something, right? So clearly we know he wasn't cool, nor was he guided to recklessly break the rules by Harry, Gred, Forge, and Sirius from his early days. Can you blame him for being uptight a la first year Hermione?

    Finally saw Crimes of Grindelwald. WB needs to hire a screenwriter to assist JK with these movies. I wish the focus of these movies was on Dumbledore and not Newt. Newt should've been nothing more than a random cameo character that popped up for part of a movie like Flamel did in CoG. There was also no reason to bring Tina, Jacob or Queenie back although they at least did something with Queenie in this one.

    On the Strike novels, I recently read all 4 and liked them a lot.

    I will warn that the first one, for me, was pretty tough to get through, but it is clear how her murder-mystery writing ability improved each book. First book still has a good story(maybe the most shocking reveal) but the way it is pieced together gets boring. Each chapter is one interview of a suspect after another. As she goes on, she does a much better job of mixing suspense with all of that.

    Every one is better than the last. The relationship between the two main characters is very interesting by the 4th book.

    The problem with Nearly Headless Nick is that he is a poorly executed character.

    I read them simultaneously with my 1st kid. We started when she was 8(1st time reading them for me). My boy just turned 8 and I'm doing the same with him. Timing is perfect, were going to Orlando in January.

    Started when my son was 7. Took almost the entire school year to get them all. I was old enough to not quite get into them when they first came out and was able to avoid all the major plot points for the last 3-4 books until then. Man it was awesome reading with him.

    There’s still a giant HP fan base. They know the last movie sucked so they’re smartly taking their time to make sure this script doesn’t blow. They just brought in the HP movie screen writer to help JK. The last movie had some good stuff in it but way to much other shit that brought it down. If the next movie is good the franchise can be saved, but if it doesn’t do well again then it’s basically dead.

    yea, it's going to go from a 7 movie arc to a 4 movie arc if 3 doesn't get things back on track. Problem was that Newt was not the right character to link to a grindevald series. Fantastic Beasts should have been a prequel that kicked off the Grnindevald arc, not the lead for the entire series.

    this is not about HP (her current issue)... but in general... she went way too George Lucas and kept tinkering with her creation and generated a ton of ill-will and just idiocy surrounding it.
