Wait. You also watch the Super Carlin Brothers? I'm not the only one?? They are amazing in their depth and geekiness. And the videos are clean!

Question about this. Do they only talk about canon or also theory? I watch MovieFlame (similar channel) but I know we consider the same things canon.

I actually think yes.
Especially after what happened the year before with Ginny, that they would be more cautious at the beginning of the year (while they still owned the map.)

Both. And their theory is AMAZING. I started with MovieFlame and a few others and then found super carlin. And no, they do not hold that the Cursed Child is cannon.

This isn't exactly a mistake, but I could never keep track of the value of the currency. It seemed like there was no consistency to it. Always bugged me.


Who the heck bases a monetary system on PRIME NUMBERS????

29 knuts in a sickle and 17 sickles in a galleon... it’s purely for a whimsical aesthetic, because it makes no practical sense whatsoever!!!

(Wizarding economics make no sense in general, anyway. The world was made to make sense to children in the target audience and their sense of whimsy and wonder; it’s 100% aesthetic set dressing with no internal consistency. JKR’s strength is in characters, not plot or world building, imho)

What did the men actually wear? In the movies they have pants while clearly in the 4th book they don’t.

It makes sense emotionally to me, but not logically.

It feels right, and most of the time that’s enough for me.

Eh. Not much into theory. What I like about Movie Flame is that if he ever does theory, he makes it very clear it's his own opinion...
Yes I know I am a tad intense about this Smirk

I think like any fantasy world, it requires occasional suspension of disbelief

2. If Quirrel dies because he can't handle being touched by Harry with Voldemort inside of him, how was he able to shake Harry's hand in the Leaky Cauldron without crumbling? He was already wearing the turban and carrying Voldemort with him.


I always thought it was because it took time for Voldemort’s essence to be strengthened by drinking unicorn blood, etc, and that at the beginning of the year, there’s not enough Voldemort to affect Harry...

Dennis Creevey joined the group at the Hogs Head in the 5th book, despite being a second year and Hogsmeade only being allowed for third years and up.

Yes, that was rather convenient.

I'm getting confused for a minute - did seeing Peter Pettigrew on the map happen in the book, or only in the movie?


Happens in the books 😊

The school points system is random and arbitrary. Is there a serious discussion anywhere that makes sense of it?

It makes emotional sense to the reader - in the moment, it shows that Snape is mean and unfair, or that breaking school rules will make you win if you’re a Gryffindor Protagonist Type who had Good Intentions and is Brave.

I chalk it up to the “old-timey boarding school adventures” genre. You have Houses and teacher politics and teachers doing things that are extremely detrimental to actual education and child development. It’s the 1990s when these books are set, not the 30s...
