The new behind-the-scenes featurette on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 below doesn’t really tell us anything new — they’re alone, on the run, outside Hogwarts, we know — but it does run through the first six films in the series in a way that made me think how amazing it would be if you’ve never read the books or seen the movies and still have all of that to look forward to. The idea was fresh in my mind after seeing a recent trailer for Deathly Hallows, turning to the friend I was with, and having her tell me she’s only read the first two books. I imagine the combination of pity/envy is similar to what some people feel for me when I tell them I’ve never seen Arrested Development. (I know I’ll love it. That could be why I’m saving it for when I really need it.)

So, back the headline: What pop culture phenomena still lies before you unspoiled, making your friends insanely jealous? Why haven’t you pulled the trigger? And when do you plan to?
