This Is What It's Like To Watch "Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix" For The First Time

Harrowing, mostly. *sobs*

Posted on

Three weeks ago I watched Goblet of Fire, and after much nudging on Twitter, this week I watched HP5.

I'm watching the Harry Potter series for the first time. Up next is Order of the Phoenix. Here we go... #finallywatchingHP

Harry is all emo, until Mad-Eye Moody and that one girl from Game of Thrones turn up to kidnap him.

Warner Bros.

Some would say "rescue", but they don't understand kidnapping laws. Consent, people. It's not that difficult.

"We sent you a fucking owl. On Wednesdays we wear stripes."

Warner Bros.

"Also, the Order of the Phoenix is a secret society set up by Gambondore to fight Voldemort, and like lots of middle-aged men with not much to do, they are getting the band back together."

Gambondore soon sorts out the whole mess.

You tell 'em, Brian. #finallywatchingHP

At the feast, Gambondore welcomes the students to the new term.

Warner Bros.

"Mr Filch wishes you to know that his popular running club, Jogwarts, will be meeting on Tuesday. Run along now. Lol."

"A theoretical knowledge will be enough to get you through your exams, which after all, is what school is all about." #finallywatchingHP

They decide to form a secret club to prepare themselves for battle with Voldemort.

Warner Bros.

They make the secret club instantly less cool and secret by having people sign a form.

"Every great wizard in history started out as a student. If they can do it, why not us?"

Warner Bros.

"If you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you."

At Azkaban, Voldemort organises a prison break, allowing Bellatrix Lestrange and co. to escape.

So Umbridge is bascially Trunchbull from Matilda, but dressed like a marshmallow. #finallywatchingHP
