Wizards… short creatures… elves… a young lad with a big destiny… Nope, we’re not talking about ‘Lord of the Rings,’ but instead: Harry Potter! Following TORn’s wildly successful series of LOTR-Trilogy “watch and chats,” we’re starting up this weekend with the much-requested Harry Potter series. This Saturday at 5:30 pm EST we will start off with “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” (that’s the Philosopher’s stone to everyone but us obviously confused Americans). Following that, “Chamber of Secrets” on 2/18, “Prisoner of Azkaban” on 2/25, and after a short break, “Goblet of Fire” on March 11th, following its release on DVD on 3/7. [More]

Join us tomorrow on our IRC server at 5:30 pm EST when we pop our copies of the film into the DVD player. After the usual confusion, at around 5.30pm EST we’ll all press play on our individual players and proceed to cheer and jeer (or discuss and argue, if you like!) the finer points of the film.

For information on IRC chat and how to take part in the fun, visit our FAQ. Chat is family-friendly and easy in TORn’s lively chat rooms. If you’ve never checked it out, this is a great chance to meet the regulars and have some fun. [Join the chat now!]
