New, edited episode up Thursday, March 29.

We finally see some magic in Chapter 3, "The Keeper of the Keys."

This week's Potterwatch is all about Jude Law's casting as the young-ish Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts movies. Is he the right choice or would we have cast someone completely different?

In the Common Room we ask each other what would have happened if our Hogwarts acceptance owls hadn't gotten lost. Would our 11 year-old selves have wanted to go to Hogwarts? And, more importantly, would our parents have let us?

Then, in our analysis of the chapter, there's a lot of new information for poor Harry (and us) to digest. Hagrid tells us what he knows and Vernon tries very hard to stop Harry from learning it all. Of course, neither that nor his gun work.

Finally, in our recurring segment, Jackie and Brigid compete for House points and glory in Archer's (rather difficult) Potter Pub Quiz. See if you can get all the answers or if you're as clueless as we seem to be.
