Avatar Image says: Thanks for the show, PotterCasters! I've just paused it during The Drums, but I have to say: the Acting Troupe peice was SO GOOD! I loved it and I can't wait for more. Great job to everyone who worked on it. (But darn you for leaving us hanging at the end!)Avatar Image says: I still haven't got to listen ot lasts weeks episode, I am so behind!Avatar Image says: i was just listening to the podcast. and i heard that frak has an amazing knowledge of friends. my respect for him doubled just for that:) though i'd like to challenge him i bet i know more about friends than him. :) Avatar Image says: one more thing: omg the acting troupe was amazing. you're awesome guys!Avatar Image says: great episode! i loved the acting troupe and can't wait for the next episode of it!Avatar Image says: Okay - strangest thing in the world. I was guest 49 on the chat, and all of my comments came up as guest 49 and they even read out one on the episode. Then my stream stopped I had no idea why then I realized it was because they had phoned me. Or at least guest 49 but it wasn't me it was some guy called Kyle. And I was blocked from listening because I was apparently talking...very weird. Anyways great show as always guys!Avatar Image says: The Acting Troupe (and all the other folk who helped make this happen) deserve hearty congratulations for an outstanding job. From the writing to the production to the voice talent, this was a really fun piece of "radio" drama.Avatar Image says: I love your show guys! And the acting troop sounds awesome, I squeed for Hagrid and Neville. I just loved the whole Al/Hat conversation. Oh and I hope the kids befriend little Scorpio. I'm sold, I want hear more! Live show sound cool, hope to participate sometime. Keep the good workAvatar Image says: squee guys! you need to podcast more often i go CRAZY when it's more than a week and i check leaky and my podcasts about every five minutes which is nerve-wrecking so please please please try not to wait so long i love you all so much and i'm all of your facebook friends except john, who seems to never be on his facebook. ever.Avatar Image says: Darn cliffhangers! I have to wait to find out what happened?!? Oh well. I really liked the episode. It's like those old radio shows. Good job guys!Avatar Image says: Great pottercast!!! i just realized that MyYahoo! has an application for the news of The Leaky Cauldron!!!! OMG that is sooooooo cooooooooool!! wow! you guys are up there with NPR and the LA times on my page! ;) SQUEEEEEEE!Avatar Image says: First: yaaaay, I've just downloaded Jingle Spells 2 from iTunes :D Second: Michael Scott would totally be in Hufflepuff. He's very loyal to his staff members -- Toby excluded, haha. Plus, he is always looking out for their best interests...even if it means not being able to make a decision because he wants to please everyone.Avatar Image says: The echo in John's feed was GREAT! It's like he was commenting from another dimension!Avatar Image says: Hi guys - just had to tell you that John's voice was echoey and horrible to listen to this on this podcast. Something to do with net audience being there?Avatar Image says: Hello, I listen as often as I can to your podcasts and love all of them. Thanks for providing me with my weekly "Harry fix". I had a question/comment. There was a lot of talk about not seeing Beedle as a movie. A lot of the callers mentioned cartoonish puppets and things of that nature. I somewhat disagree. What about a live action movie? Ok I know it might be a lil extreme but possibly directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Now that would be a real bedtime story. With his (own) followers and that of Harry, there would be no worries about a box office hit. I agree with Mel, it can be done; just the right way. It would be great to see Beedle on the screen. My other thought: Why couldn't Dumbledore host? He does speak from the portrait right? Avatar Image says: Very good show. I enjoyed Acting Troupe: Albus Potter and the Founder’s Fountain. As I listened it took me back to Sorcerers Stone, is the adventure going to begin again! Can't wait till the next episode.Avatar Image says: You can't compare the sales of Beedle with the Twilight series. I haven't read Twilight, but it is still in an early stage I guess. The Potter books had to wait for their grand succes for a while too. I haven't read Beedle either (yet) but I know everyone is just jumping on the band wagon for this. Lets face it, it's a Rowling so everyone is buying it, despite the quality of the text (I haven't read it yet, so I don't know if it's good).Avatar Image says: I finally got around to listening to last weeks episode and I am currently listening to this weeks episode of Potter Cast. I have my copy of Beetle Finally, but I am wrapping it up for Christmas. "Its Wayne's World, Wayne's World...I mean Its Beetle's World, Beetle's World" Sorry that is what John made me think of was Wayne's World intro. I definitely think that the tales should be animated if they do them. If they do a narrator I don't know how they are going to beat Burl Ives (the Narrator in Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer) Haha but I am sure they could find a really awesome actor to do it. Avatar Image says: ceguyomvpaxcetgolubxagbjzlwlcrAvatar Image says: Listened to the podcast today. The acting troupe is amazingly good. Love the story line.Avatar Image says: I just now listened to the recording, and I have to add my praise for the Acting Troupe: they did an extraordinary job. Writing and production were excellent; original, funny, and dramatic. Really well done.Avatar Image says: The Acting troupe was great. Thank you guys.Avatar Image says: 2 things, First and foremost acting troupe is crazy amazing, I think when it's all done you should put it out as a cd for download for charity, I would definately buy it, being that I can't own a book copy I can read over and over again. Damn for the cliffhanger and I was really hoping scorp would end up in griff or huff. Secondly, I was suprised in the wandlore discussion that no one mentioned the fact that Ron's orginal wand is a hand-me-down. I just started re-reading the books again and I positve that Ron mentions that his wand was Charlie's. But I don't recall an mention of him not being able to do spells. Any comments?
