I listened to it twice last night... great episode! Keep up the great work you guys! :)Avatar ImageRinny says: listening to it right now, and wanted to make a comment about the whole "ron's removed part in the last scene" thing. I wonder if it was partially to set up the dynamics for the next movie- when they're traveling around and harry and hermione are planning, and ron feels left out and unnecessary, and perhaps that they don't need or want him there- the whole horcrux temptation thing. the ending bothered me, too, but when the third time i saw the movie, i wondering if maybe this is what they were doing...Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: Ughhh, it won't go on my iPod. Oh well, I'll listen to it with my computer...Avatar ImageFlittwick says: I agree with SUe i was disappointed after we had to wait for the extra time involved a much better production was expected. I admit to reading to book many times but there is some essential pieces missing ! all in all it is a good film unfortunately the plot goes in a different direction.Avatar Imageanadebi28 says: It's been way too long since a show. So glad it's back!Avatar Imagesessionka says: It's about time! I thought everyone was taking the summer off :-)Avatar Imagepotter_piper says: Hi Pottercast crew. Thank you for the new show. If you look at the comments here and on facebook I think you will see a trend very polite yet a trend that says thank you for the new show and where have you been. Mugglecast a Podcast that comes out when they want it to has posted more shows this summer then you have and you are still a "weekly". This has been the same the past few summers so I should have expected it to happen again. Next year you need to look at how many people download the show and how many you see on tour and figure out if you are truly servicing your listeners or your own fun. If the latter that is fine too. I have other Podcasts that take time off but they tell there listeners that they are doing it. Communication would be nice. Now this show was great but I can tell it was recorded a few weeks back. Do you have another one recorded? Will we wait until mid September for the next show just let us know and be honest with us and yourselves. You are the best most adult Potter Podcast on the net. However both with DH, OP movie and HBP movie you on the road right after release those people got great shows but the majority of your listeners had to, not by choice, get there insight from other Podcasts. I know you do this for free and what I am asking of is for you to have less fun so I can have more well hey that is America.Avatar ImageAveryfan says: It's alright, Melissa, we all know you "pick out of love." I just made that comment because I thought it was funny that the same pattern happens for every movie. Sue's really the only person who remains consistent throughout, LOL. But far from making me "hate" her, I think it makes me trust her-she's really got a sense of what fans really want. She's like a Movie-Crookshanks. Show the film to Sue and ask, "What do you reckon?" :) I wonder if it is even possible to make the perfect Potter movie? I mean 1 and 2 were much closer to the books than the later films, and most of us found them less than stellar moviegoing experiences, especially for the casual fan. I'm still holding out hope for 7A and 7B, just because they have so much time and money to spend and I'm interested in the choices they'll make. But 6 kind of "broke" me in terms of hoping for anything close to what the books had. Perhaps the true function of the movies is to make us love the books even more.Avatar ImageFifi says: I liked the review with Steve Kloves.Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!Avatar ImageAsta says: Awesome!

I thought I was going to die!Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: yay!i've been missing pc :)Avatar Imagekayzz says: Sue it makes me so sad that you didn't like it. But that's okay, obviously you're entitled to your entitled to your own opinion.Avatar Imagehoras1 says: Sue you were right on in every count. The movie was the worst of the movies and they threw the canon out the window. It was suppost to be funny har har. Right on Sue the worst of movies the movie before atleast gave you some canonn and action. This picked your pocket for the price of the movie.Avatar Imagehoras1 says: Sue you were right on in every count. The movie was the worst of the movies and they threw the canon out the window.

The Acting Troupe ROCKS! I am riveted to every episode! Sue, I'm glad you spoke your mind about HBP. You will really be upset when Kloves has Hermione tell Luna's father all about the Deathly Hallows she's read about in the book DD gave her! ;-)Avatar Imagehermionerules1844 says: I don't know what i would do without PotterCast!Avatar ImageHagiographer13 says: PC back ... hi Sue, acting troupe -- meh .... As has been noted everyone has a right to their opinion, and I'm sorry Sue was disappointed in HBP. Ah well ... as far as I am concerned it was a brilliant film that stands up very well on it's own and not merely as another sequel to a successful series. All the changes in focus go straight to making the final 2 films more understandable for the non-reading film fans. Beautiful acting, cinematography, script and film environment. And beautiful Sue, we love you too, even if we disagree! * hugs *Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: YAY!! Great Pottercast is back I'll be sure to put that on y iPod asap! :D :D Squeeee YAY!! So, happy!! :DAvatar Imagedsm25 says: Sue, thanks for your stark honesty. You aren't the only one who was disappointed in HBP. I'm looking forward to some of the changes that were alluded to for upcoming episodes. Maybe some character study in depth discussions? Seems in recent months that PotterCast doesn't have a lot of meat in the shows anymore...Avatar ImageBuffyXO says: The wands in Islands of Adventure will be like the Kim Possible that we have over at EPCOT. It is really fun and interactive, even for non fans. I have never seen an episode of Kim Possible, but when I played the French challenge, I squeed when the sculpture stuck its tongue out. It was so much fun!Avatar Imageclashcityrocker13 says: Thank you for a honest review Sue. I was very disappointed in the movie. Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Sue is da bomb!
