A week late due to Nick’s computer dying, but it’s here! The MFV Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald episode!
But first, Alastair has seen brand new movie Wreck-It Ralph 2, whereas Nick is retreating into elderly sitcom The US Office. But at least they both enjoyed themselves.
Which stands in sharp contrast to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (10:33), a film diving into a part of Harry Potter mythology even hardcore fans are struggling to care about, and Nick and Alastair are not in the fandom.
Which leads us neatly into our related question: what does it take to make the fandom turn on a franchise? (27:47) And no, the answer isn’t just casting Johnny Depp.
