    Speaking of Mr Potter…
    Did you see Idol Chatter’s piece about the wand / TV remote control? It looks totally cool. I realize that magic and electricity are as compatible as oil and water. But this mugglish attempt at blending the two is quite intriguing.
    In terms of all the extras and commentary… In many ways I believe that the work should speak for itself. All of these extras do not add to the piece as seen in the theater. I suppose there is something to b said for background information. But for the most part, I think it is simply more trivia, flotsam and jetsum on the Celluloid Sea. I no longer spend extra $ or time on these commentaries.

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community.
