I like how all of these 11-17 year olds are just going to school with vampires and werewolves and giant spiders and vicious three-headed dogs in their backyard, yet they need a permission slip with an iron-clad parent/guardian signature to go have a harmless butterbeer at the nearby wizarding village.
Okay, Hogwarts. Okay.
Glee star Kevin McHale has admitted that news of the show’s ending is “bittersweet”.
Fox has confirmed that the show’s upcoming sixth season will be its last, and will consist of 13 uninterrupted episodes.
McHale, who hosts E4’s new panel show Virtually Famous, told Digital Spy that he is pleased he had a chance to get ready for the end of the show.
"We’ve known the end was coming, which I think was healthier - we’ve had time to kind of mentally prepare ourselves," he said. "But it’ll be sad, because the show has changed all of our lives in such a huge way, and it’s been an incredible experience. I will miss seeing everybody every day."
McHale added that he will particularly miss the crew, explaining that it may be hard to meet up with them because they work long hours and a lot of them have families.
"We’re just as close to them as we are the cast but you don’t see them," he said. "I think for me that will be the weirdest thing and the hardest thing, to not see the crew. They care about the show sometimes more than a lot of us, because they’re there so much and they’re investing so much time.
"A lot of them have been there since the very beginning - there’s such little turnover in terms of the crew, which has been amazing because our show is not an easy show to shoot. It’s long hours and doing difficult things and shooting several music videos in addition to shooting a regular TV show a week. That will definitely be the hardest thing."
McHale does, however, admit that now is a good time for Glee to end.
"I feel like it’s a good time for it to end and we’ve had a really good run. I don’t feel like it’s too premature or anything, which is good to be able to say that."
Virtually Famous begins on E4 tonight (July 21) at 10pm.
Friendly reminder that Tom Felton improvised this scene because he forgot his line.
I think I get so passionate about Harry Potter because the universe is so big. Like there’s the main characters, but there’s thousands, millions even, of other kids that go, have gone, or will go to Hogwarts, and there’s countless numbers of wizards and witches all across the world. And even just in Harry’s era, every kid that went to school with him is different and has a different story. Everyone has a headcannon about normal life at Hogwarts with silly games and dormitory sleepovers, cross-house friends, pranks, purebloods and muggleborns trying to figure out the other’s world, class happenings, endless things. And I love it. The universe never ends, you can write a story about anyone in the whole school and it’ll be unique. And we get a whole new angle with Fantastic Beasts, seeing 1920’s wizarding and seeing what life outside of Hogwarts is like, with all sorts of witches amd wizards. And we have a good idea of what the Marauders are like and how their time at Hogwarts was spent, and just with little details we’ve worked our way into their lives. So maybe I get a little overexcited about Harry Potter, but I don’t care!
21st of July 2007 the final instalment of the Harry Potter series, The Deathly Hallows, by J.K Rowling was published. It sold 15 million copies in first 24 hours, making it the fastest selling book ever.

"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."
Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.
And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.
