We started off the new year with a Weasley Whiz-bang by revisiting all 20 hours of the Harry Potter series covering Years 1 through 7 at Hogwarts. The goal was to finally give this insanely popular fantasy series a fair shake and to determine whether Muggles who haven’t read the books can truly become Potterheads. (The answer might surprise you.) Plenty of highly technical debates ensue including the rules for casting spells, accusations of racism in the movies, and the confusing relationship between the real world and the wizarding world. So is J.K. Rowling obsessed with Labyrinth and David Bowie? Why is Dobby such a beloved character? Is there really a point to the Sorting Hat?
