Comic Con - Day 2

TOM IS COMING!!!   SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

I promise to get in line as early as I can, and take as many pictures as I can.  I'm still afraid to get my hopes up.

Today, I saw the Farscape panel.  Claudia Black completely rocks!!  Ben Browder was cool too, but quieter then I expected.

Then we went over, waited on a really long line, and finally got into The Big Bang Theory panel.  It was fun, though not as funny as I thought it would be.  The actors all seemed a bit tentative, and the showrunners/writers were shockingly stiff considering how funny the show they write is.

After that, came the 24 panel.  It was a big panel, with a composer, about 4 writers, the showrunner, new cast members Katee Sackhoff and Freddie Prinze Jr (and one other actor that was in Slumdog Millionaire, I don't recall his name).  And the other 2 cast members were Mary Lynn Rascomb (?), and the man himself, Keifer Sutherlund.  Keifer was terrific.  Very talkative and knowledgeable.  I liked him a lot.  

Then came the Bones panel, which we were excited for.  Unfortunately, David Boreanez bailed on the panel.  His excuse was that his wife is 34 weeks pregnant, which, OK...but is she in labor?  Well, anyway, the panel was only the showrunner and Emily Deschanel.  She seemed nice enough, but the showrunner was sort of an asshole.  We left in the middle of the panel.

Then, after that, I get a text from Craig because we wanted to get together later.  He texts me "Did you hear Tom is coming?"  So, I'm thinking he's talking about the rumors.  So, I text back "For real, or rumor?"  He tells me its for real, confirmed by WB.  My response was "Holy Shit!"  I'm still freaking out.

We ended our Con day with Riff Trax, which are the guys from the old Mystery Science Theater 3000 show.  They did a live Riff, and took some suggestions for future movies.  They were freaking hilarious.

I got a few pictures of Keifer, some good pics of Claudia and Ben, and about 1 decent shot of Mike Nelson.  Overall, I'm very pleased and having a great time.  Its crazy, but fun.

Tomorrow I'll try to get into Lost, and then later Ironman 2, and a few things in between.  As always, wish me luck.

And sunday, I'll be lining up ridiculously early.  I can't believe My!Tom is coming.  I promise not to embarass myself.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! Can you even believe it?!?! I'm so excited, and I'm so happy for you!

You should have seen the way the internets exploded over the Tom news. This is a BIG DEAL. I wonder if he'll be there for the whole thing, including the Q&A, or if he'll just make a quick appearance. And you must have seen by now that the press release confirmed he's a co-executive producer! Yay Tom!

Not to scare you, but people are talking about spending Saturday night in line. Just so you know what you might be up against.

Isn't Claudia Black completely awesome? I adore her. I had stopped watching Stargate, but started up again when she joined the cast after Farscape was cancelled. That's interesting what you say about the Bones showrunner. I got the same impression from listening to his commentary on the Pilot. I love hearing your take on things, and I'm so glad you're having a good time! I was worried when I saw pictures of the crowds, but I should have remembered you're from NY! :D

OMGOMGOMG You're going to see TOM!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!!

I would have loved to have seen a Farscape panel, especially with Claudia and Ben!

The Big Bang cast being a bit subdued doesn't surprise me. I just watched an interview clip with them and they really didn't seem overly "fun."

And Tom... No words. Okay, maybe a few. ;)
I will go out on a limb and predict that the lines will be FAAAAR beyond the capacity of the room. Seriously, the press release is being covered by practically every geek and non-geek sites out there. The WB really played this one well. So, do what you can to get there as early as you can. Hell, I'd be in line NOW... but that's me. LOL!

I'm hoping to post any updates to JTW as I hear them from you, if that works for you. You can message me and let me know. I think everyone is THRILLED for you and so happy to have you there as an authentic TOM-FAN to give us the breakdown information that we all really care about - the good Tom stuff.

Have fun!

I'm so happy for you Valerie!!!!! *hug* Good luck navigating the frenzy and sending good karma to you that you get lucky and get in the room to see our guy.

Too bad about David Boreanez bailing on the panel but maybe his wife is having a tough pregnancy?? *shrugs* He's not a first time Dad so and they have at least 4 weeks to go...

Keifer!!!! I've always loved him and the new cast members sound interesting. Did you know that his grandpa was the founder of our national health care system and the most beloved CDN of all?

I wish I was there with you and have fun getting together with Craig!!!! I hope he finally gets an interview wit Tom!!! Gah!!!

Just so you know, I've decided I want to be you when I grow up! You are the luckiest and awesomest person ever.

And it's weird about the Bones panel. The year I went to Comic Con I sat in on that one since the tribute to Bruce Timm was after it and I thought Hart Hanson was really nice. Of course at that panel only David was there and he got annoyed because people kept asking him questions about Buffy and Angel.
