Comic Con ‘08 - Give Me My Remote

Today’s the day.  In a few hours I’ll be in the air off to sunny San Diego and the mecca of pop culture known as Comic Con.

The next few days are going to seriously kick my ass but in the best way possible. There are so many TV panels over the course of the Con that it’s absolutely impossible to attend them all.  No seriously, it’s impossible. The schedule is such that some really fantastic TV panels are happening right at the same time. As an example of the desperate choices I’m forced to make, on Saturday the panels for “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, “Lost”, “The Office”, and “Dollhouse” ALL overlap.  A TV lover and blogger should not have to make those tough choices.  It’s just not right.  And even when I do have to make the choice (and in this case it would be “Dollhouse”), there’s no guarantee that I’ll actually be able to attend.  The rooms fill up quickly and the lines are long and my press pass means bupkis when it comes to actually physically getting into the various panels.  So the schedule game plan (which I’ll post on Thursday) which has been in the works in one form or another over the past few months could be shot to hell once I show up.  I’ll bitch, moan, stomp my feet and then find another panel to attend.

In addition to all the panels, I’m going to be covering a number of the press rooms for the shows.  This is going to give me either one-on-one or small roundtable access to some of the creators, writers and cast for some of the best shows represented at Comic Con. There will be some great scoop to share.

Rushing from panel to panel, I’m going to do my best to post updates along the way.  It might be a little tough to do full blog posts during the day, but I you can check out the latest photos and my quick thoughts through my Twitter updates.  And for you TV Talk Podcast listeners, Dan and I will try our best to post short podcast updates throughout the day in addition to our general panel podcasts.

Whatever way you choose to follow my TV adventures, I hope that you’ll enjoy it!

Twitter Updates from Comic Con

    To the best of my ability, I’ll be posting pictures and videos throughout the day.  It all depends on the downtime I’ll have.  But just as I’ll do with Twitter, at the start of each day I’ll post my Flickr photos to the slideshow.
