WATCH IT! Wednesday: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

This weeks WATCH IT! Wednesday is super special to me. I've loved Harry Potter since I was little.

WATCH IT! Wednesday: Pride and Prejudice

Many people have heard of Pride and Prejudice. Lots of people know about the author, Jane Austen. However, many people haven't seen the 1995 Mini Series, produced by The BBC.
