Episode #88: Harry Potter is Science Fiction

Brick Room Listeners, we hope you had a good weekend, especially if you’re one of those lucky people that got a three day weekend.  We start this week’s episode talking about words of wisdom.  What sayings, that we commonly use today, will be looked back on in future times as being important?  Then we move on to time travel and the different types of time travel used in movies and storytelling.  Which brings us to Harry Potter and Star Wars.  We learn an important lesson in The Brick Room today which is this:  Star Wars films are fantasy movies about magic and the Harry Potter films are Science Fiction movies.  It’s true.  Don’t believe us?  You need to listen.  Finally, we talk about what makes a person cool and what makes a sport a sport as opposed to just a game.  Is there any reason poker is televised on ESPN but Jenga isn’t?  Why are soccer and hockey olympic sports but dodgeball isn’t?  Get your drink and join us for the discussion.
