Deathly Hallows Sneak Peak Discussion


Micah: Well, there was a little bit of a clip that aired for Deathly Hallows.

Andrew: Finally!

Micah: Finally!

Andrew: Oh my goodness!

Eric: I - what are you guys saying 'finally' for? What do you mean by that?

Andrew: Because the last clip we saw came out about six or seven months ago now it has been, when the Half-Blood Prince DVD came out. So this is basically our second batch of footage. And, I mean...

Eric: True.

Micah: It is not really a trailer. I - what do you...

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: ...guys think?

Andrew: Well...

[Eric sighs]

Andrew: Yeah...

Eric: It is...

Andrew: ...you - go ahead.

Eric: It is not. And that's what upset me because...

Andrew: It was a sneak peek. They never promised a trailer, though. Keep that in mind.

Eric: I don't know. I get the feeling that the press release said just from Part I or something. But it was - it is another preview of clips from both films actually.

[Andrew laughs]

Eric: And I just get the feeling - by this time, I expected a trailer for Part I. Sure, it is cool to see some things about Part II, but it is a year and a half away or whatever. Actually, no, just a year. Wow.

Andrew: Well, remember we found out a few weeks ago that the first trailer will be coming at the end of this month, so...

Eric: Well, that is good. But at the same time, this - I just don't know why they are showing us stuff from Part II. Sure they filmed them at the same time, but it is like - I just - I want to start getting excited about Part I and only Part I. You know...

Micah: Well, you're...

Eric: ...what I'm saying? So...

Micah: ...not going to get that much of a look into Part II. It's just not going to happen. I think probably with the MTV Movie Awards, what they did was they gave them the best of what they had to offer.

Andrew: Yeah, we - what stood out to me, first of all, that shot of the dragon in...

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: ...Gringotts. That was awesome. And what this tells me - and we saw a few scenes. Not just the Gringotts with the dragon, but we also saw a couple of shots of Voldemort. And we saw the protection around Hogwarts. So, they have a lot of the special effects done and they look great. Don't you guys agree?

Micah: Yeah, I agree. I didn't get too excited with the protection around Hogwarts. It looked a little odd to be honest with you. It looked like the giant blob from horror...

[Eric laughs]

Micah: ...movie lore was surrounding itself...

Eric: It is...

Micah: ...around the castle.

Eric: And the bubble...

Micah: The dragon...

Eric: ...was quite large, wasn't it? The bubble was quite large. It was not just around Hogwarts proper, the actual castle. It was around everything from the lake. It was a really far out shot. It was pretty ridiculous. Wherever they would be attacking from, that the bubble is breaking - it just seemed like the bubble was far too large. Hogwarts was very small inside it and I don't really - I don't understand that.

Andrew: The first time I saw it, I didn't even realize that was Hogwarts in there because it was...

Eric: Well...

Andrew: It looked...

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: ...so dim.

Eric: The low quality version was kind of bad for that. I think - I remembered - I really thought Voldemort was on the train tracks in front of the Hogwarts Express.

Andrew: That's what it looked like to me too. Wasn't he?

Eric: When I first saw it, yeah. It wasn't though. It is - I think it is the Carrow guy for some reason. It is not Voldemort because if you - I'm going to try and find the timestamp.

Micah: Yeah, it is definitely a Death Eater. It is not Voldemort. But I wonder if they went for that special effect overhead because that gives them sort of the Deathly Hallows book cover look, possibly when the battle happens in the Great Hall.

Eric: What do you mean overhead?

Micah: Well, they have this thing that looks like a darkened sky/blob thing that is over Hogwarts. And I'm saying that is very similar to the cover of the book. You know...

Andrew: I thought it...

Micah: ...what I mean?

Andrew: I thought it was Planet Earth at first, on fire...

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: ...or something. It looks like a few continents in the ocean. It just - I don't know. I...

Eric: It does.

Andrew: ...don't know what to think about it. I guess it is all right if you could see Hogwarts through it. But just a quick glimpse, which is what...

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: ...the sneak peek shows. Maybe at...

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: ...the theme park, they are going to be able to put this around the castle there. That would be pretty cool.

Micah: But a couple of things that I picked out of this which I didn't really get were - number one was Hedwig being sent off...

Andrew: Yeah.

Eric: Yeah.

Micah: ...at the very beginning. Doesn't she get the boot...

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: ...into a...

Eric: Just a...

Micah: ...powdered puff of feathers?

Eric: I guess she is - I... [laughs]

Micah: Unless they decided not to kill her.

Andrew: There is no way they didn't kill her. What if this was before they even escape?

Micah: Yeah, but there is not much that goes on before that.

Eric: Not in the books. Maybe he is learning about Horcruxes. Maybe he is writing to people...

Andrew: Yeah, yeah.

Eric: ...like Hepzibah Smith's grandchild that he is keeping up correspondence and...

Andrew: Yeah.

Eric: ...that is how he finds out that there is a cup at Gringotts.

Andrew: Or maybe he is accepting the wedding invitation and...

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: ...sending it.

Micah: That is it. That could be it.

Andrew: It is going to be something silly like that, I think. That is definitely at the beginning of the movie. It has to be. There is no way they didn't kill Hedwig.

Eric: Hedwig. [laughs]

Andrew: If they didn't kill Hedwig, that would be stupid.

Eric: All bets are off?

Andrew: I would...

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: I would throw a Hedwig doll at David Yates at the premiere and be, like, "This guy was supposed to be dead." Or maybe this is a - some marketing plot for the theme park because they sell Hedwigs there.

Micah: Well, some of the other stuff, which led to Eric saying earlier that there is stuff from the second part, was there is a shot of Harry and Ginny at Hogwarts. And there was also...

[Someone makes kissing noises]

Micah: Yeah, they were doing a little bit of that. And [laughs] Gringotts, which I would think would - as well as the shot of Hogwarts, so I guess that could probably be - in either part, they can do a shot of that protection over Hogwarts. But I would think that the Gringotts scene would probably be in the second film.

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: But maybe...

Eric: Yeah.

Micah: ...I'm wrong.

Andrew: There is a cool, quick shot in the cafe. Overall, just a great - I was really excited to see this. And I'm glad - and MuggleNet, when this premiered, it - [laughs] the site crashed.

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: We got so much traffic. And while I was, like, "Ugh," I was also, like, "That's awesome."

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: Because so many people...

[Micah laughs]

Andrew: ...are going to MuggleNet after probably...

Eric: Can we replicate this? Can we... [laughs]

Micah: Yeah.

Andrew: Yeah, I hope not. We are going to try to fix it for the future. But very cool, yeah. It got everyone very excited.

Eric: Yeah.

Micah: Yeah.

Eric: Just the - I mean, even though it is a few frames - that dragon just pulling himself out of - and you - I think he is in chains. You hear chains getting crunched and he is breaking through pillars. That is awesome.

Andrew: Yeah.

Eric: Except what was missing was the trio on its back, I guess. I don't know.

Micah: Maybe they had to wait until he got outside. He has got to break through the wall first. He can't break...

[Eric laughs]

Micah: ...through the wall with them on top. That...

Eric: Right...

Micah: That wouldn't...

Eric: Right.

Micah: ...seem safe.

Eric: All that rubble will fall on them.

Micah: But another thing that led me to realize that this was some stuff from the second film was Voldemort. He has a line in there where he says, "The boy who lived, come to die."

Eric: What is Harry doing when he is saying that? Because Harry is backed up against the wall. Do you guys see - it is, like, twenty-nine seconds in and it is just - he is in this...

Micah: That could be in the...

Eric: ...moment of severe pain. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Micah: Godric's Hollow. I mean, that could be in - it doesn't have to be from the second part. It could be from the first part when they are in Godric's Hollow, and he just sort of deceives Harry into coming to the house and upstairs. I mean, that would be my guess.

Eric: Oh, because he collapses then, doesn't he? Right after Bathilda snake comes out of...

[Micah laughs]

Eric: ...Bathilda body. That was a weird, weird moment.

Andrew: So overall, a great, great look. And this is - I mean, we heard about this big marketing campaign starting at the end of June and it looks like this is sort of like the tip of the iceberg. Very...

Micah: Well, you left out the most important scene that...

Andrew: Well, what was that?

Micah: ...people will be talking about, was the fight.

Andrew: Oh, yeah. Between Harry...

Eric: Well...

Andrew: ...and Ron.

Eric: Yeah. That is actually - I mean, I feel like that is going to be an amazing part of the movie.

Andrew: Why do you say that? I mean, it looked good. But - I mean...

Eric: Well, just compare...

Andrew: I...

Eric: ...it to - okay, compare it to Harry and Ron's fight in Goblet of Fire, the movie. Did you even remember that Harry and Ron fought in Goblet of Fire movie? Be honest.

Andrew: I'm trying to think but I don't think so. [laughs]

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: I remember the, "He was their friend!" in Prisoner of Azkaban but [laughs] that is it.

Eric: No, there was that fifteen minutes where Ron is not speaking to Harry and then there was that, "I'm not an owl!" Emma...

Andrew: Oh.

Eric: ...Watson thing.

Andrew: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Eric: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You totally forget that happened? Sure. But my prediction is that in Deathly Hallows, you are not going to forget that this happened. Sure, maybe it is because he is going to be missing for half the movie, but...

[Andrew laughs]

Eric: ...I think the acting is just completely picked up. You can tell from...

Micah: Well, the fight is a bit more physical here too.

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: As opposed to Goblet of Fire.

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: And there is also the shot after that of what looks like Harry trying to destroy the - or maybe Ron, destroy the locket. It is like a really...

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: ...quick scene.

Andrew: Yeah, I think it is Ron. And I think you are right. It is cool because it goes straight from that to the dragon busting down the pillar to...



News: Deathly Hallows Video Games


Micah: And it has really been busy news-wise. We found out that Electronic Arts is going to release a Deathly Hallows video game, Part I, so they are maximizing their revenue. There...

[Andrew laughs]

Micah: ...will be a Part II.

Eric: Well, I feel like...

Micah: Well - I mean...

Eric: ...you can't release stuff.

Micah: We debated that. We debated that...

Eric: I feel like...

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: ...for a while.

Eric: ...you can't release Part - you can't release a game that has Part II stuff if the movie hasn't been - I mean, a movie game doesn't work that way.

Micah: Well - I mean, they could have waited until Part II was about to be released in theaters and then...

Eric: That is true.

Micah: ...release the game. But they are deciding to do it Part I and Part II.

Eric: Well, I think maybe - judging from MuggleNet staffer, Nick's review - and Nick did go to Electronic Arts headquarters in Surrey. And he posted a pretty cool report which is readable on MuggleNet. But judging from his report, they seem to kind of - been a little wary about some of the criticism the games have received in the past. So, I'm suggesting that maybe they split the game in two just in case [laughs] they still don't get it right after...

[Andrew laughs]

Eric: ...Deathly Hallows: Part I, the game.

Micah: Well, I'm sure they are developing it fully right now. I mean, it doesn't really make sense for them...

Andrew: Oh, yeah.

Micah: ...to wait to develop the whole thing. I mean, they are going to get input from Warner Bros., and where this movie splits and where it ends, and all of that other stuff. So, I just think that - so far the reaction, as you mentioned, Eric, has been kind of negative. We got that first look at the picture before Nick gave his report online and people didn't seem to be too happy with it. And I know Nick mentioned that the graphics do improve, that a lot of the photos that are coming out right now were kind of early stages of how things look. And he wanted people to know that so that they didn't jump to conclusions: "Oh, these graphics are terrible!" But that one picture that we did see early on was this battle between the trio and the Snatchers somewhere in the forest. And I think - I have been highly critical of the EA games and I know some of the other people have too. But I think this may be a little bit different being removed from Hogwarts and kind of having a little bit more of this free-roaming ability to be in a different setting completely.

Andrew: Yeah, but - well, wasn't that the appeal of Half-Blood Prince? You were in a free setting too. But you could walk around...

Micah: Well, you were...

Andrew: ...Hogwarts.

Micah: ...limited to the Hogwarts...

Andrew: I see.

Micah: ...grounds.

Andrew: And this one...

Micah: I mean...

Andrew: ...you can go anywhere.

Micah: ...you couldn't...

Eric: Well, this one is just - this...

Micah: Well...

Eric: ...one just...

Micah: ...again, I don't know...

Eric: According to...

Micah: ...that...

Eric: ...Nick's review...

Micah: ...for sure.

Eric: ...this one just doesn't take place at Hogwarts. And he has some bullet points like you can defend The Burrow and stuff like that. I just - I have no idea what the setting or even the plot of the game will be. I just think looking at a picture - and maybe this is like a complete one of what I said about the epilogue, but I just think - looking at that Deathly Hallows picture, I don't know what people are complaining about for the video game. Quality-wise there was nothing wrong with that picture of Harry - sorry, the trio and the Snatchers. Games now are in such high definition 1080p - I don't think there was anything missing or wrong with the graphics. My God, maybe it's because my favorite video game ever was Crash Bandicoot from 1997.

[Andrew and Micah laugh]

Eric: But still, I don't have high expectations. I want the game to play well. It doesn't matter if my HDTV is going to get optimum resolution for the game. For me if the game is good, it's going to be good. You know...

Andrew: It does to me.

[Eric sighs]

Andrew: I need to see Harry, Hermione and Ron in all their 1080p glory!

Eric: Well, here's some quick bullet points from Nick's review. Sorry, Nick for bastardizing these by just taking them all and using what we liked. That's what we do. [laughs] The wand - okay, Crucio as a spell will be available in the game, Andrew. So I don't know what you're talking about, "We need more spells." But it will be weak as Harry's intent is not evil. So what do you think the purpose of this Crucio spell is going to be in the game if it doesn't - if it's weak? What does that mean? Are you going to be going around mildly hurting people?

Micah: I don't know. Maybe just to get away, if you need to shoot a quick spell...

Eric: That's true.

Andrew: Yeah, yeah.

Micah: Put somebody under this curse to run away.

Andrew: Could that also be a way to keep the game rated PG or something? Or whatever the game - E?

Eric: I feel like there is some attention drawn to escaping the Snatchers, and a lot of the - Nick's report gives a list of some of the enemies. Interestingly, even though the game is not set at Hogwarts, there will be some returning creatures such as trolls and Whomping Willows even.

Andrew: Mmm!

Micah: Dragons...

Eric: Dragons, Pixies again? I don't know if they'll find Pixies in the wild, but that'd be kind of cool.

[Micah laughs]

Andrew: Yeah.

Micah: Well see, I like this side to the game because they're trying to bring back parts of the series that maybe people would be familiar with. So I do like this attempt by EA to be all-encompassing, but again, it's going to come down to the game play and how true does it stay to the movies and I guess that will also be how true the movies stay to the books for the enjoyment factor. I think - I don't remember the number but there was close to 25 hours of game play, or something like that. I forget it - Nick mentioned it in his report - but that's a lot compared to where the Half-Blood Prince and Order of the Phoenix games were at. I mean, you could probably get through it in a couple of hours without very much effort.

Eric: Yeah. Very true. I think that a large bit of the focus of at least movie game 5 was free-roaming Hogwarts and they put a lot of effort into it. But I think that kind of detracted from the story game play because they spent so much time building this Hogwarts that when the final product came around, it was an empty Hogwarts. I mean, you could do Exploding Snap...

Micah: Yeah, it is empty - that's a great word. I agree with that. I think that's probably the best way to describe what it was. It was empty, there was nothing going on. Yeah, you could pass students and maybe hit them with a spell but there wasn't enough happening. There wasn't enough side tasks or side stories if you were roaming around the castle to get involved with, and I think that's really where they missed the boat.

Eric: So saying - removing that from the equation, you'd think "Well, now they don't need to worry about free-roaming Hogwarts anymore"...

Andrew: Until Part 2.

Eric: [laughs] Yeah, until Part 2! Well, I really want to see Grand Theft Dragon. I think they should release a separate video game - Electronic Arts' Grand Theft Dragon, focusing just on the Gringotts escape sequence. You know, beat up a goblin, steal his mine cart...



LEGO Harry Potter


Micah: So if you want to read all about this video game, Nick did write up a great report. You can check it out on the site. I'm sure we'll post the link in our MuggleCast show notes. But to wrap up video game news, LEGO Harry Potter released what I think will probably be their final vignette, unless they do a compilation of all the different years for their video game. This one was Year 4: Goblet of Fire. Just quickly, what are you guys' thoughts? It looks pretty good. They seem to be staying pretty true to the books, actually.

Andrew: Yeah. It's really nice to see all these scenes come to life in LEGO form. It's just really clever how it all looks, and each one of these vignettes gets more and more exciting because you're seeing all these things in the film now in video game form in a clever, cartoonish sort of Lego way. It's really fun to watch. So what else is going on?



News: 200 Episodes of MuggleCast


Micah: Well Andrew, as you mentioned at the top of the show, this is our 200th episode.

Andrew: Oh really?

Micah: Yeah. So I thought a good way to wrap up the news - or actually, you thought a good way to wrap up the news - would be talking about 200 episodes. It is a milestone for us. Of course, we want to thank the listeners. We wouldn't be here 200 episodes later without all the great people that listened to our show and that we've met along the way and all the different places that we've been to...

Eric: You know, it's funny you should say that, Micah, because a lot of us aren't here anymore. [laughs] There's only three of us! It's like MuggleCast Survivor here...

Andrew: Well... [laughs]

Eric: Who has made it through 200 episodes?

Micah: Well, as Andrew was mentioning...

Andrew: Well, you know what? We should say that Jamie wanted to be on the show today, but he's in the middle of moving so he couldn't make it. He didn't have Internet, but he did send us some Make the Connection ideas...

Eric: Oh, that's awesome.

Andrew: ...which we're going to read through in a little bit.

Eric: But yeah. We wouldn't be here...

Micah: Yeah.

Eric: Even the three of us wouldn't be here if it weren't for the fans.

Andrew: Absolutely. I mean, we say it all the time, but it's absolutely true. So we're very appreciative of everyone who's been listening, whether it's been five years or whether you just start listening the other day.

Micah: Yeah. And that's - we talk about this a lot the last couple of episodes, but we really do have a lot of new listeners that are just sort of coming on board. And I know we get a lot of e-mails about downloading old shows to kind of get a feel for what things were like up to this point. But I like your idea, Eric. Maybe we should hire Jeff Probst to come in and read the final votes for the three of us and see who wins...

Eric: Yeah.

Micah: To be on the final show. But based on what Andrew was saying, it's kind of like moving on from the PS2 to the PS3. I mean, people have - there's other commitments that come up and...

[Andrew and Eric laugh]

Micah: ...there are things that people have to do. That's just the way that it works. And I think - it's not that they don't want to be on the show. I think - we always get people asking us, "Where's Ben? Where's Jamie?" And Laura's off in some foreign country somewhere. Who knows when she's coming back.

Andrew: They'll all be back, we can promise you that.

Micah: They will.

Eric: But yeah, even - I think what sticks out for me, too, for the most - throughout the past 200 episodes, is the e-mails that we get from people. And not just - you know, people from all different walks of life, people that we meet at the live events, like college professors, and all sorts of people from all different walks of life and their support - and whether you're a new listener or an old listener, if you can take something from the show, or even send in an e-mail of your thoughts and help us add to it - it's been a collective, organic process, and it does work around people's time schedules. It was a lot easier to get everybody on when we were all in high school.

Andrew: And when we weren't oversleeping and missing the recording.

[Micah laughs]

Eric: Well, that's just your problem. I don't think I've ever had that problem, Andrew.

Andrew: Yeah, I don't think many - we haven't had many oversleeping cases. We've had a lot of - audio files have disappeared. What are some other big flops we've had?

Micah: Ben was trying to get wireless in the car in Kansas somewhere.

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: Right. There's been times where we were getting ready to record for so long we were just like, "Oh, screw it. Let's just do it tomorrow." [laughs]

Micah: There was one episode that was completely lost...

Andrew: Right.

Micah: I remember that.

Eric: Well, I did - I think as far as audios getting lost, that's happened, I think, twice for me.

Micah: You win the title for that.

Eric: I win the - oh, come on.

Micah: If we were doing Survivor and you were the fan favorite for that, you would get the $100,000 for losing the most audio.

Eric: I did - I remember completely re-recording my - I had like a - it didn't record correctly. I think the RAM on my computer was low, and so the entire episode - Andrew, do you remember this? Where like my audio clip for the entire episode was the beginning and end of my sentences or words in response?

Andrew: Yeah, I think I remember that.

Eric: But what I did was I used the echo that I heard in that audio file from what everybody else was saying to completely re-record everything I had said - and of course it was still fresh in my mind - to rebuild the episode. But then there was one where I think we just lost the audio file and we had to re-record, because it wasn't - that was Episode 13, but we talk about that far too often on the show.

Andrew: Yeah. So a lot of great memories of recording this podcast over the years. And it's just been so much fun and you know...



Thanking the Transcribers (you're welcome)


Micah: I think we should take a moment also to thank the transcribers, all of them that have been a part of this show...

Eric: Yeah.

Micah: ...for 200 episodes. I mean, they've obviously changed. Somebody named Matt Britton started as a transcriber and he...

Andrew: Someone named Micah Tannenbaum started as a transcriber, too. [laughs]

Micah: That's true.

Eric: Wow.

Micah: Way back in Episode 1.

Andrew: Right.

Micah: So it's interesting to see how things change, and obviously everybody over there does a tremendous job. I think we're pretty much caught up. We're at Episode 196 now, so just being at 200 there's not too much of a gap. You know, we try and get things out on time, and they really do do a great job, and it's kind of one of those thankless jobs, and people take it for granted sometimes that the transcript is just there, but...

Eric: Yeah.

Micah: ...it's a lot of hard work on people's parts.

Eric: I mean, if you started out - if you've been a MuggleCast transcriber at any point in the history of MuggleCast, we thank you. And not only that, we understand if you're no longer with us. [laughs] We get it.

[Micah laughs]

Eric: If fact, I'm going to go further and say, I'm sure the transcribers transcribing this episode, tasked with that, would just appreciate, really, if we didn't ñ if we quit thanking them, because they're transcribing every word.

Andrew: Right.

[Everyone laughs]

Eric: That said, I'm going to sum this up in quite a few more words here: transcribers, thank you.

Micah: No, that was good. That was very good.

Andrew: That was about to get serious for a moment.

Micah: But no, I mean, I know people who have used that experience on resumes and in job applications, for what they did on the site, and it's helped them out a lot.

Andrew: Mhm.

Eric: Very cool.

Micah: It's valuable experience, I guess.

Andrew: I have my original microphone sitting right here that I recorded the first episode with...

Eric: Oh, wow.

Andrew: It's a little Logitech desktop microphone ñ it's not a headset...

Micah: Aren't the rest of us still all using those?

Andrew: Yeah, I am too! I'm talking on my headset right now.

[Eric and Micah laugh]

Eric: I have no ñ Andrew sent me a new headset about a year ago, or two. And I've been using that one. But I have the original somewhere. I think it's at home. I think it's probably next to my can of Tootsie Rolls.

Andrew: I think for old time's sake, when I record the intro for this episode, I'll record it with this microphone.



What's Next for MuggleCast?


Micah: So Andrew, a lot of people want to know, where is the show going to go from here? I mean, we're 200 episodes in, we have a theme park opening pretty soon, we have a movie coming out in the fall, another movie next summer. What's our plan moving forward?

Andrew: I'm done. I don't know about you guys...

Micah: Oh, okay.

Andrew: I've always agreed to 200 episodes.

Eric: [sarcastically] Ha, ha, ha.

Micah: That's your contract?

Andrew: No - well, we will. I think it's fair to say we will do this through Part 2, and we'll work from there. Now I'm not saying we're going to end the show. I don't think MuggleCast will ever end. I think ñ through the next year, absolutely, we'll continue doing shows every other week, and then we'll work from there and see what we can do. I mean, by that time Jo may have the encyclopedia announced and that could reveal a lot of new information, so...

Micah: Don't bet on it.

Andrew: [laughs] Don't bet on it!

[Everyone laughs]

Eric: Wow.

Andrew: I mean, there always has to be some podcast to follow Jo's Twitter, I think.

Eric: Yeah, yeah.

Andrew: So maybe we'll just turn MuggleCast to Muggle Mini-Cast, and whenever she issues a tweet, we'll just read it on the show and call it a day.

Eric: I think that's fraught because tweets have...

Micah: It will always be "Pen and paper are my priority."

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: So thanks everyone so much for, you know, staying with us and we hope you enjoy the show. We hope you continue to enjoy the show. We still love recording it - I think I love recording more than ever. It's just a lot of fun to do.

Micah: Yeah. I think the spacing out, though - not to sound lazy [laughs], but when we decided to move it to being almost bi-monthly, I think it allows us to keep it fresh and we're a lot more energetic coming into each episode...

Eric: And I'll find myself...

Micah: Looking forward to a lot more.

Andrew: And there's more news to talk about.

Eric: Yeah. Well, I'll find myself in the off-week - like you just said, I'll find myself in the offweek wanting to record and I'll be like, "Oh I have another week to wait." But at the same time, I'm excited and then I have something to look forward to. I make mental notes and I'm more prepared because I've been culling it over for two weeks...

Andrew: Yeah.

Eric: ...when to record. So that's a benefit.

Andrew: So thanks everyone so much. And I guess now that's a great way to intro our interview with David Heyman. Like I said at the beginning, he's the producer of all the Harry Potter films.
