Comic Con - Day 1

OMG!!  There are a gazillion people here. 

Well, the registration line took a little over an hour and 30 minutes to get through.  That was fun...(not so much).  But we went right to something at Ballroom 20 and sat through something that didn't interest us that much.  Though Robert Picardo was on the panel, and Chris Pine called in and talked to the audience.  It was for some animated movie.  But after that, there was an EW sponsored panel called "Wonder Women: Female Power Icons in Pop Culture".  That panel had Eliza Dushku, Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Mitchell and Sigourney Weaver.  It was super-cool!  I liked all the women a lot...except for Dushku who comes across a little full of herself.  But OMG, Sigourney rocks!  And Zoe seemed like a real nice, really grounded young woman.


Then came a panel for "Burn Notice", with Mr Bruce Campbell himself.  It was SO MUCH DAMNED FUN!!  Bruce totally did not disappoint.  He's a fucking rock star.  The crowd went bananas for him.  And he looks awesome.  We were very lucky to have great seats, so I got some good pics of Mr Campbell.  The head writer of "Burn Notice" was also very funny.  And that panel was moderated by Michael Shanks.  I think he was/is on Stargate?  Anyway, he was very funny as well.  When I get home, I'll post pics from these panels. 

Tomorrow morning, we are getting up at the ass crack of dawn to try and get into the Farscape panel, then we hope to see "The Big Bang Theory", "24" and "Bones".  Everyone send good vibes my way.  The Farscape panel will be a good trial run for "Smallville" since its the same room, at the same time of the morning, just on different days.

Oh, and I picked up a SV bookmark at the DC booth.  It has Clark and Chloe on it.  :)

I hope to have some fun updates for you tomorrow.

I'm glad you're having fun!
Have you heard anything about the rumors flying around that they're going to reveal a Superman-type suit at the SV panel? Supposedly, Warner Bros. was randomly pulling people out of the audience and showing them the suit tonight to build up hype. People are saying that the suit is made out of leather with no cape. Right now this is all rumor and hearsay...

The other part of the rumor is that Tom is going to show up at the panel on Sunday, wearing the uniform. I'll believe THAT when I see it.

Good luck getting to see everything you want! If you find out any scoop, let us know!

No, I've heard nothing at the Con itself. But I was in panels most of the day, so who knows? I hope...

Yay! It's so great to hear from you! I'm so glad you're having a good time! That wonder Woman panel sounds wonderful.

Michael Shanks was on Stargate SG-1, and last season he was a guest star on Burn Notice, I guess that's why they had him moderate? I read about the BN panel, Bruce Campbell sounded hilarious. Is it true he kept paying off the fans? :)

What we're all dying to know is, though, have you heard anything about the Smallville Superman suit?! Supposedly WB has it hidden in a secret room, and they pick fans off the floor at random to view it, and then send them back out to spread buzz about it, and supposedly Tom is going to wear it to the panel on Sunday. Yes, I KNOW it sounds completely crazy, but of course we all hope it's true! LOL! Keep your ears open and your eyes peeled!

Yup! Bruce did actually give people money. He's so hysterical. What a ham, but in a totally cool way!

I've heard nothing about SV, or any suit. No buzz reached my ears.

Well, put it out of your mind. Just make sure you line up for the Smallville room EARLY.

Farscape panels are supposed to be fabulous. Ben and Claudia are great friends and have amazing chemistry. That one should be a lot of fun. And TBBT is one of my favorite shows! I like Bones, too. Have a blast! I can't wait to hear all about your day!

I've seen some pictures, and those crowds look insane. Be careful you don't get squished. :)

I've heard them. All I keep thinking is "this is going to make it harder for me to get inside and get a good seat". LOL

Hey, you! You're getting to see such cool people! Sigourney is one of my favourite actors ever and....BRRUUCCCE! Can't wait to see your photos.

As others have posted above, Tommy-rumours are rampant! Still got my fingers crossed.

Sigourney was so amazing, and she looks fabulous.

Cross those toes for me too, OK?

I read the Tom rumors. I've decided to stay in skeptic mode so I don't get too disappointed. At this point, I just want to be sure to get into the room.

Glad you are having fun. I am sitting here anxiously waiting to go to SD on Saturday night. Going to be there early Sunday morning, no way I'm missing the panel.

Hee chlark bookmarks! I saw a picture of it from a friend, I hope they still have some when I'm there.

Hope Saturday is just as fun!

I'm glad you are having a great time! I'd really like to live that experience, in spite of the huge crowds (I don't feel comfortable surrounded by a lot of people. I'm like Tom. lol But I'd get over it!)

I like Michael Shanks. I followed SG-1 from the beginning and he played my favorite character.

I hope you are lucky next Sunday and have a very good time! I warn you: don't cheat on Tom with anyone else if he doesn't show up. lol

Thanks for all the info! I look forward to the pics!

Thanks for the report, sounds like so much fun. :D
Aw, I'm happy to hear Zoe is so nice.
Keeping my fingers crossed that Tom shows up unexpectedly on Sunday.
And have fun at Farscape panel! &hearts

Oh. I didn't see Chris in person. He did a little film clip for us, and he called in, but he wasn't actually here.

But yeah, saw Zoe. She's lovely, and so tiny.

If you get a picture of the Chloe & Clark bookmark, is there any chance I can get a copy to post on K-Site?

I have never had the pleasure of meeting sigourney weaver, but I interned at her husbands theatre company and he is a super nice guy, so I always assumed she was really nice too.

With Tom going and BadToad going as well, I am officially worried about her health..I'm not sure it's healthy for someone to not breath for a whole hour.
