There are fans of the Harry Potter series, and then there are the Potter Superfans. If you're one of the former, head to Potted Potter, a completely unauthorized, hilarious condensation of ALL SEVEN books into a single show, performed by only two dudes. (If you're a Superfan, however, you'll be too busy studying up on locavore Mugglewort varietals to leave the house. Too bad!)
