Very cool, since I had to promise not to buy the DVDs so I could get them as Xmas presents, LOL.

Well I know what I will be doing that weekend. My granddaughter loves Harry and she watches them with me every time they are on. Even my autisic grandson watches part of these movies and he doesn’t ever watch much on TV! I am so glad that they are going to be on and I can’t wait to get those new ultimate edition DVDs.

Oh, goody, another wasted weekend, staying up until the bitter end to make sure that Harry survives his encounter with Quirrelmort / the Basilisk / 100 Dementors / Voldemort himself!! Sigh; I can never seem to resist, and these Sneak Previews are part of the reason!

Too bad they don’t have the rights to show all 6 movies. Now THAT would be a marathon weekend. :)
