Harry Potter and the Boring Screenplay

I thought it was just my lack of attention span and the fact that reading a screenplay isn't the same as a novel but nope, it wasn't that. Since I have a meetup on Saturday to chat about Harry Potter and The Cursed Child and since I took today as a sick day since hormones were roughing me up but good, I was determined to finish it.

Alas (earwax), I thought it stunk. Didn't feel the vibe of any of the known characters and didn't care much about the new characters. It read like cheesy fanfiction and while I was mildly curious to see how the drawn out plot was going to end, when I got there, it was a big ol' "meh, whatever."

Ah well - it doesn't ruin my love for the "real" Harry Potter series so that's good at least.

Oh boy...you are not the first to say this.

It is terrible when 'professionals' fail at what feels like badfanfic and amateurs can take characters and make extended episodes and whatnot and make it feel right...and they're amateurs!

I can't believe that JK actually allowed her name to go on that thing. It was so disappointing. She clearly did NOT write it.
