This season we’re tackling one of the most beloved series of all time: Harry Potter.
In this episode, we look at the four-act structure of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, pointing out the first plot point, midpoint shift and second plot point.
Then we analyze the scene where Harry gets a Firebolt for Christmas from a mysterious patron.
Finally, we take a look at the concept of exposition, using the scene where Harry learns that Sirius Black supposedly betrayed his parents to Voldemort.
