Harry Potter and the 10 Years Later

And speaking of things being extended, looks like the fine people at Furious Molecules who make the Harry Potter and the 10 Years Later videos are splitting the final episode into two parts.

If you haven't seen these yet, they're quite good, if for an adult audience only.  I love Ron's character (and I didn't particularly like him in the books).  Here's the premise:

The webseries, colloquially known by the hashtag #HPplus10 online, takes a look at our hero ten years after taking down He-Whose-Name-Nobody-Quite-Remembers (but before that sappy epilogue full of kids). Things have changed significantly in Harry’s world. With no dark wizards or witches left, the Ministry of Magic’s Auror Department shuts down, leaving Harry unemployed. Ginny wants to start a family, Hermione is having doubts about her goody-goody lifestyle, and Ron... well, he’s Ron. Everything seems very average in a late-twenties-problem kind of way-- but as always, trouble finds Harry yet again.

The first five episodes are cued up here.  But here's the first one to get you started.
