Episode #12 - Hufflepuffly

Feb 19, 2017, 01:49 PM

From Thunderbirds to Auguries, Malfoys to MACUSA, this episode is themed specifically around the new Potter canon that's been released into the world in this past year via Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This might honestly just be an excuse for us to talk excessively about Jamie Parker, who makes Cursed Child worth seeing, but we've got lots of love for the play's casting, performance and magical special effects, if not its plot. We're taking umbrage with Rowling's continued double standards between representation in her work and advocacy in her real life, and the script book of Cursed Child was really not the best way to share that story. Fantastic Beasts introduced some awesome new canon to the universe, but did it really, really need Johnny Depp? Also, there's a Hamilton meltdown in here somewhere, because this is us.
