    #449: Torturous Toad (OOTP 13, Detention With Dolores)

    Reminder: MuggleCast is moving to Tuesdays! Each week we'll have a new episode available bright and early.
    A 'flagship' Harry Potter store has been announced, where we'll be able to grab coffee, Butterbeer, and... 'House Wands'?!
    Chapter by Chapter: Order of the Phoenix Chapter 13, Detention with Dolores
    This chapter is very unlucky for Harry. Are all Chapter 13's in the Harry Potter series the same way?
    Theory: Every chapter ever is unlucky for Harry.
    Fred and George are getting away with their testing -- until Hermione steps in. Why this moment was truly 'below the belt' for the twins.
    What's going on with Hermione and her crusade to free the elves? We don't see her doing any work that the elves do.
    We learn that Bowtruckles can actually be quite evil. How could Newt keep one so close to his eye balls? It's Security Nightmare: Pickett Edition!
    Then again, they have leafy hands. How peaceful! What an enigma.
    Malfoy drops some information that's of interest to Harry, while Luna sticks up for The Chosen One in a big way.
    Detention with Dolores: It's in this scene where Umbridge goes from being an annoying teacher to a truly evil one.
    Did Dumbledore or McGonagall know that this type of thing was going on? Should Harry have ratted Umbridge out? And did this ever happen again?
    Quizzitch: What does Cho refer to Ron as? Answer on Twitter by tweeting @MuggleCast!

    #448: Have a Biscuit (OOTP 12, Professor Umbridge)

    The hosts share the Harry Potter gifts they received during the holidays
    Chapter-by-Chapter returns with Order of the Phoenix - Chapter 12: Professor Umbridge
    Seven Word Summary: Classes begin for the term despite attitudes
    Harry’s troubles continue: Seamus bolts early in the morning, Dean is at a loss for words and Lavender isn’t buying Harry’s story either.
    Hermione once again raises the importance of House unity. But is Hogwarts set up well for such a thing?
    Does Dumbledore, in fact, not want to draw attention to Hagrid's absence?
    Fred & George are in search of test subjects! Why couldn’t the Gryffindor Head Boy or Head Girl handle them?
    Why doesn't Harry own up to giving the Weasley twins their money for the joke shop?
    Kissy Kissy! Cho is back. Enter Ron - Master Wandblocker! 
    Is J.K. Rowling trying to tell the reader something about jumping on bandwagons?
    Harry has his worst day of classes: History of Magic, Potions, Divination, DADA
    What classes when we were kids could we just not get through?
    With Hagrid gone and Umbridge teaching DADA, Harry really has no classes he enjoys! 
    Does Snape ride Harry hard because he sees potential in him or because he's an ass?
    Umbridge raises the point that Defense Against The Dark Arts at Hogwarts has been rather disrupted and fragmented. She's not wrong, is she?
    So, we’re going back to basics? We could see doing this for one or two lessons, but the entire year?
    What does Umbridge having a short wand mean?
    Do we believe this new DADA class was really carefully devised by experts at the Ministry?
    Is Umbridge wrong about Lupin?
    Parvati raises a great point about the practical nature of their O.W.L.s. So, the students should just show up and perform a spell? Isn’t Umbridge setting the students up for failure? Wouldn’t it be a poor reflection on her if all of her students fail their O.W.L.s?
    Have a biscuit, Potter!
    Umbridge Suck Count, Connecting The Threads, MVP of the Week, Rename The Chapter return
    Quizzitch: What has Hermione been making over the summer?
