We Just (Re-)Watched… Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Like practically every 90’s kid, we got scooped up in the hype train that was Harry Potter. From the books to the films, that world was amazing. We all saw each film at the cinema over the years and suddenly it was over. While it was still an interesting world, the magic of it fizzled a little bit. So we thought it was time for a reappraisal.

What I’m Reading – ‘Nemesis’ by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven

What I’m Reading – ‘We Stand On Guard’ by Brian K. Vaughan, Steve Skroce, and Matt Hollingsworth

The Witcher Episode 7 Review – ‘Before a Fall’

The Witcher Episode 5 Review – ‘Bottled Appetites’

Based on “The Last Wish”, one of the best of the original short stories, this episode sees Geralt and Yennefer cross paths for the first time. And their relationship promises to be an interesting one. At the very least, this makes the timeline a lot simpler. Ciri’s plot moves forward too, as she is taken from Brokilon by a doppler impersonating her old friend Mousesack.
