I upped my Hulu subscription to the package for this. {nm} dsbman Jul 03, 18:36

WB should see if they can stream Harry Potter & the Cursed Child someday {nm} tealfan Jul 04, 00:28

ideally before JKR alienates the entire fanbase {nm} pickle rick! Jul 04, 01:12

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good RogerMore deep analysis. But most times I just deserve an “ah”. {nm} islndr Jul 04, 12:55
