Looking back on a week in which we clung desperately to our ignorance

First Harry Potter leaked. Then the Times reviewed it. We tried our best not to notice. But to no avail. Finally, we broke down and resorted to bribery.

Danny Boyle told us that he will not blow up Planet Earth. Even more of a relief, Milos Forman promised he has no plans to revive Courtney Love's acting career.

El-P got physical, while Slint and Jamie T took a load off.

We imagined an alternate universe in which I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry might actually have been watchable.

Emmy voters decided that The Wire is plainly inferior to Andy Samberg's gift-wrapped wiener.

Mandy Patinkin went nuts. And 94.1 percent of nominees for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program have nuts.
