So you've been vegging out on your couch for almost 10 hours while watching ABC Family's Harry Potter Weekend, and things are going great.
You just finished The Prisoner of Azkaban, and you know Harry is about to face the Triwizard Tournament in The Goblet of Fire.
You grab a box of tissues to prepare for Cedric Diggory's death when all of the sudden... WHAT?! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
ABC Family has skipped right on over, arguably, one of the best films in the series and moved on to The Order of the Phoenix. What. The. Actual. Hell.
For those wondering why ABC Family would do something so unnecessarily cruel, it turns out we should all be pointing our bitter fingers at HBO.
According to Reddit user wesmith294, ABC Family doesn't always have the rights to the fourth movie. Sometimes HBO gets that privilege.
As one Facebook commenter says, the TV rights for the movies are set for a certain period of time. Aka ABC Family can't have a true Harry Potter weekend if HBO/Cinemax has the rights at a given time.
What? No. Why? Is Harry Potter Weekend no longer sacred?
What about Mad Eye Moody and Fleur Delacour and the Gillyweed? And what about Voldemort, you know, coming back to human form? The Goblet of Fire is a pivotal part of any Harry Potter marathon. It just is.
Not having any of this crazy talk, ABC Family. Bye.
