Lots of anticipation for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald from us here at So…I’m Watching This Show. We’re all big Potterheads, and we all loved the first Fantastic Beasts film. So it is with great sadness in our hearts that we must tell you that we were disappointed by this latest effort from J.K. Rowling.

It wasn’t all bad. The ‘beasts’ were all very cool, and they brought back the Nifflers in spectacular fashion which had Kristin squeeing with delight. But the movie had many faults, not the least of which was how they handled Queenie. Not much in the story felt earned; it all felt like the second movie in a trilogy, but in a bad way. And we know there’s going to be five movies, but that doesn’t mean you can just stick one in the middle that can’t stand on its own two feet.

The exciting news is that we have a special guest this episode! Long-time friend of the podcast Cat from Shuffle Online is joining us. We’re very excited to have her for this Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald episode and this won’t be the last you hear from her. You can find her at @things_catloves!

For now, join the three of us as we try to gently weave our way through the issues we had with this movie on today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
