Be there for a special announcement about another joint campaign between the California Browncoats and Adam Baldwin. And last but not least, come to hang out with all the great Browncoats at the Con! Room 24A

Of course, my plane doesn’t even land in LA until the very end of the first panel I want to attend so you can see how I’m not exactly gonna make it to everything I want. Since I knew that going in, I’m cool with it. Except I’m a little bummed about a couple of overlaps on Saturday, mainly the Pushing Daisies/Bionic Woman/Avatar and the Joss/Sarah Connor Chronicles overlaps. How am I supposed to choose between Joss and Summer? (This is a rhetorical as y’all know there’s no real question about who I’ll be choosing.)

Again, this is just a dream schedule… because there’s no way in hell I’m going to do even half of that. I’d be burned out by Saturday morning if I tried. Because that doesn’t even factor in any time exploring the exhibit floor, extra special things I might get to do, spending time with Jo, chatting with other TV bloggers, a little Veronica Mars location tour of SD, etc., etc.

    shaibitch says:

    Damn thye full schedule is up? Score!

  2. 2
    hanncoll says:

    Wow, ‘full schedule’ is a pretty apt description. Everyone in the Western world is apparently going to be there. *is not at all jealous, oh no!*

    And I hadn’t heard about “Fanboys” before, but it sounds like it could be awesome. :)

  3. 3
    spectralbovine says:

    Dude, you already saw Pushing Daisies! You have to go to the Avatar panel, since I can’t! Dammit! Look at all the cool panels! Curse my half-marathon falling on that exact weekend! I mean, theoretically, I could still go since, like, the last panel I’d REALLY want to see is on Saturday afternoon, and the thing is Sunday. But it’s probably not a good idea to get all tuckered out the days before the run. And Comic-Con tuckers you out. LE SIGH.

    afrocurl says:

    *tear* I can’t get to the Joel Silver panel because there’s no way I can get to SD from my house in less than one hour.

    You’ll have to go and really enjoy that and tell me if JD is there and hopefully I can find him later.

    Full schedule, and stuff that I’m planning on being at too. I have a feeling that someone needs to leave the Heroes panel early to get a good spot for SPN, but that might just be me.

  5. 5
    raelee says:

    Actually, it’s Bionic Woman that causes the problem with Avatar. I can see PD that morning and still have time to see the Avatar panel. It’s BW that overlaps with the end of PD and beginning of BW… and it’s in a different room, on a different floor. Grrrr!

    Still, I REALLY REALLY want to see S3 clips… and maybe get a definitive answer on when it’s going to start.

    Tuckering yourself out before your run is not good and, yeah, CC is definitely a tucker you out event.

  6. 6
    raelee says:

    Aww, bummer!! :(

    Still, JD isn’t listed as attending and the Joel Silver thing is a combo of two subjects so I dunno if he’ll even be added to the panel. I’m wondering if they’ll have any clips from the recasting shot and ready to show by that time.

    See, I think there’s enough time between Heroes and SPN for me… but maybe not since J2 will be there. You might have to be in that room hella early to get bird’s eye view of the boys.

  7. 7
    raelee says:

    Haha. Well, if the crowd last year is any kind of determining factor then, yes, everyone will be there. Sadly, that actually makes it even harder to do things on the schedule. So don’t be too jealous.

    You hadn’t heard about Fanboys? I guess I’m just immersed in VM fandom so I’ve been hearing about it for what seems like forever. It’s been pushed back a few times, even, so I feel like it’s been around for so long that it’s almost new news again. ;) All the clips I’ve seen from it are very funny. If only they’d get around to releasing it.

  8. 8
    raelee says:

    Yep! And I see you’ve already posted what you’d like to see… I need to go read.

  9. 9
    eolivet says:

    Heh, “Torchwood” made it to Comic Con…wow. That’s the most significant indication I’ve seen that the new “Doctor Who” has made an impact in the world of U.S. sci-fi. Cool. :)

    I’m very amused that “24″ is there, as well — I think they need to assure viewers they don’t suck as much as S6 indicated. ;p

    I want to know what you thought of “Pushing Daisieeeeeees”!!! :D

  10. 10
    afrocurl says:

    Yeah, I should be to SD by 230 or 3 on Friday.

    You’re right about the panel, but it would have been great to hear the info on the show at all, and I’d hope for the clips, too.

    There’s time between the panels, but to get that really good seat, I might still be leaving early (or well, I’ll let people go to the Heroes panel and stake out the good season for SPN.)

  11. 11
    shaibitch says:

    Yeah I had to go sneak a peak! Anxiety is kicking in…lol Thank god we are flying in on Monday and should be settled by Thursday.

  12. 12
    shaibitch says:

    I’m tempted to go sit in on it if I can and wear a HEX shirt…lol Never got the whole Doctor Who thing but it might be good to see.

  13. 13
    shaibitch says:

    See that’s the part that’s worrying me is that like what 3 hour block where it’s just going to be wall to wall people…lol

  14. 14
    afrocurl says:

    Well, last year I just hung out in the one room for the panel I wanted to go to was and moved closer each time. I have to think that it might be wise to do that again this year, even if I sit through some boring panels just for the one I want. It worked well last year, but there’s more I want to go to this year.

  15. 15
    klia says:

    Holy crap, that’s going to be one fantastic weekend! Dang, I wish I could go.

  16. 16
    shaibitch says:

    THat’s what I’m thinking! I’ve never been so this should be interesting…lol

  17. 17
    afrocurl says:

    It worked last year, and it should work again, even with the time to get from panel to panel in place.

  18. 18
    raelee says:

    It is a lot of fun… if tiring and all-consuming.

  19. 19
    raelee says:

    Heh. I LOVED IT!!! I promise to say more soon. I really meant to get that post up today but the hours seem to be flying by… I also really liked Carpoolers which means I agree with your assessment of it and have to change my original opinion.

  20. 20
    eolivet says:

    Ohhh, your icon…LOVE!!! :D

    I’m so glad you liked “Carpoolers,” too — something about it was just genuinely funny, and there are so few of those comedies lately. The funny usually comes in the form of snark or cleverness or nastiness, not good, old-fashioned belly laughs. ;)

    roniabirk says:

    We are going to make our goal by July 14th (whoo!), so if we were to pass you an electronic form of the letter to be printed, could you print it and what kind of heads-up time would you need? Also? THANK YOU SO MUCH!

  22. 22
    raelee says:

    That’s AWESOME! Yes, I can print and… hmm, it’d be best if I could have it before 5PM on the 24th. That way I can get it printed on a nice printer rather than my cheap one at home.

    I still don’t have word on whether I’ll definitely be doing anything extra with them but, even if I’m not, I can make sure it gets to them… either by working with my contacts or just walking up after the panel and handing it over.

    That’s how you know I really love it… if I immediately need an icon (or, as in this case, I see a scene in the show and immediately know I *have* to have it as an icon).

    I posted about it and am linking you in case you don’t backtrack this far in the morning. :)

    Ahh! So many great things to choose from. Avatar! BSG! Numfar! You’re going to take pity on we poor saps stuck in other parts of the lower 48 and post updates after right? :)
