DEXTER, TRUE BLOOD, BIG BANG and More: Give Me My Remote is Off to Comic-Con!

July 21, 2010 by  

Fellow TV nerds, it’s the most magical time of the year.


Yes, I’m just the tiniest bit excited.

Though I may technically be a television reporter, I’m really just a complete and total fangirl at heart. Which pretty much makes Comic-Con my nerd nirvana.

Television writers and stars talking about my favorite shows?


Tons of fellow couch potatoes?


Free TV-related swag?


But we understand that not all of you can make it down to San Diego, so we’re going to be your eyes and ears at the Con and bring you on-the-spot coverage, so you can enjoy it as if you too are attending.

We’re covering the Con in a slightly different way this year.

In addition to doing many of the television press rooms and panels — provided we get in to Ballroom 20 every day! — we’ll also be hosting live chats during select panels! That means that you can experience Comic Con from the comfort of your couch, desk or wherever else you have internet access. Be sure to check back soon for the official live chat postings. Each live chat posting will allow you to set a personal reminder, so when the panel starts at Comic Con, you’ll be alerted and can follow along with our updates from inside the room. How fun is that?

So, which panels will GMMR be hitting? (Starred events indicate scheduled live chats)

Check it out…

We’ve also got GMMR freelancers covering the SUPERNATURAL and SMALLVILLE panels and we’re hoping to get a GMMR reader in the GLEE panel to do some reporting for us as well (any volunteers?) PLEASE let us know!

And we’ll be talking to the casts of BONES, THE BIG BANG THEORY, CHUCK, FRINGE. THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, CASTLE and GLEE up-close-and-personal, so give us a shout if you have any questions for them by commenting below.

If you aren’t following us on Twitter, now would be a good time to start. Korbi and I will be tweeting pictures, any cool sightings and fun quotes from the panels all weekend long.

P.S. I know I’ve already made plans to meet several of you at Comic-Con but if you happen to spot me and want to say hi, I promise I won’t bite… unless you’re blocking the pathway between me and David Boreanaz. In that case, there are no guarantees.

Follow @GMMRTV, @korbigirl, and @MarisaRoffman on Twitter, and Facebook too, for all your up-to-the-minute TV news and commentary.

    I’d love to live your life these next days !
    And if you meet David B, I’m sure you’ll share with us. 😉

    One question for Bones panel : “Do they still think about a crossover this year ? With which show ? ”

    Have fun girls !

  2. Lauren on July 21st, 2010 2:26 pm

    i’m going to the GLEE panel on sunday! I would love to take some notes or pictures or something of the panel for you guys!! Drop me an email or a tweet at @laurd and maybe I can help out 🙂

  3. Lauren on July 21st, 2010 2:27 pm

    i also love the LIVE CHAT idea. that’s very cool for fans who aren’t going to the con!!!

  4. Poetic_line on July 21st, 2010 2:45 pm

    I would definitely block your path to David Boreanaz and push back if I were going to be there.

    Ask David how he sees Booth getting Brennan back romantically. He never told her he loved her. That was a big mistake on his part.

    Ask David what problems he likes to put in front of Booth.

    And definitely put me in the line of fire with Hart Hanson. You can squeeze info out of him for me. What is Brennan going to do about her supposed rival for Booth’s love and will she ever know she loves Booth.

    Does Hart ever see them being an outwardly romantic couple for a season or forever? Thanks.

    So freakin’ excited and once again living through the two bestest tv nerds on the interweb!! Have fun and pace yourself guys!

    P.S. Can’t wait for the Castle intel…DR, DRATW!!

  6. Choebe on July 21st, 2010 4:35 pm

    Oh Marisa, what are you doing to yourself??

    I will be sitting here, biting nails and going nuts in the chaos that will be Friday – possibly running into Saturday (GAH, Chuck. Adorable Zachary Levi).

    Too bad I won’t be in your path to DB. I would put up a good fight!!! I think we ALL want a piece of him! 😉 Have a piece of him on my account, k?!
    And also sooo looking forward to hear/see Emily – hoping she makes it.

    * How is DB’s view on the rumored SO? Do they also still plan to bring in Booth’s dad?
    * Before the season finale, DB mentioned possible emotional storylines for Booth. Is that still going to happen?
    * Emily said before the season ended that Brennan might let herself fall in S6. Is this still something that plays and how is she going to react to Booth’s possible unavailability (physically and emotionally)?
    * Is that seesaw between B&B and Swaisy still going to play on?
    * It’s been rumored both B&B return with a new load of baggage. How much effect will that have on themselfs, eachother and the team?
    * Are they thinking of doing an undercover episode this season?
    * Is Emily going to direct and if so, when do they hope she’s going to do it (1st half or 2nd half S6)? Also, is she nervous, will her dad or David help along in giving tips?
    * How is Cam’s love life going to be in S6? Dr Paul still around? ( I hope so)
    * Hodgela: will we see some offspring in their future?
    * Are they planning to introduce a new squintern since Joel and Ryan seem to become less, if even at all, available due to their new projects? How will everyone react to a new or falling away squintern?
    * Are we going to see old family members return: Max, Margaret, Russ, Jared, Ange’s dad, Michelle, …. Or maybe introduced to new ones (besides Booth’s mom/dad that is)?
    * If each could change a storyline (past seasons), which one would it be and why? Or maybe they would have liked to dig deeper into a specific storyline, which one is that then and why?
    * Is Brennan’s note she wrote during her capture in S2 finally gonna show up in S6, or is Brennan still reluctant to share with the class?
    * How much is the new nemesis going to effect the team? Is that an angle they are excited for?

    Ok, I am goiing to stop. Seriously, I should be there. I could keep them talking for hours and hours. ;P

    Have fun Marisa and thanks for doing this. Also, take a break once you get back. We will have a crazy Friday/weekend but yours is going to be even more chaotic.


  7. Kath (GMMR) on July 21st, 2010 4:44 pm

    Hey Lauren –
    Expect an email from me.

  8. gemlily5 on July 21st, 2010 4:57 pm

    Can you ask the Bones cast this question? How different will season 6 be from the previous seasons? I am going to be thinking about how much fun you will have being there! Try taking some pics,please!

  9. KATIA REIS DE ABREU on July 21st, 2010 5:22 pm

    Question for the Comic Con: The Brazilian fans want to know when we will see Brennan confessing their love for Booth and begin to be together forever.

  10. KATIA REIS DE ABREU on July 21st, 2010 6:21 pm

    I’m beginning to see Castle and I know that the couple is leading in almost the same situation of Bones, that is, they like and do not declare themselves to each other, do not take the passion and finally say “I love you.” I wonder Castle in what is coming in relation to the advancement of relaciomamento them and myself would like to ADD IN BONES: There was talk of ADVANCE THE RELATIONSHIP B & B, when they begin to show real progress in question.

    “I promise I won’t bite… unless you’re blocking the pathway between me and David Boreanaz. In that case, there are no guarantees.” – LMAO!! Oh Marisa… you’re such a good fangirl you! Have a great time!

  12. sharonc on July 22nd, 2010 1:38 am

    I would bite, claw and kick if DB were in my sites ;-). I’m so excited, thanks for doing the Live Chats!

  13. Ashley on July 23rd, 2010 6:12 pm

    Excited for the Fringe panel tomorrow, but sadly I just remembered I will be babysitting at that time 🙁 But I have one question (for the panel) : Are they still thinking about doing a crossover? And if so, with which show?
