A brief and enthusiastic hello!
I am sitting in one of the smaller panel rooms at the San Diego Convention Center, waiting for the start of the Girls Gone Genre panel with Felicia Day and Marti Noxon. In the past two days I watched the JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon panel, saw Tina Fey manhandle a Brad Pitt cut-out, took a photo of William Shatner, and, most awesomely, got to say hello to Alan Sepinwall after the Hawaii 5-0 panel. (Eeee!) It’s been an overwhelming, crazy-making learning experience, and I look forward to putting this knowledge into practice for the already-purchased 4-day pass for next year’s Con.
I’ll write longer impressions and post pictures when I have more time and more power outlets, but overall, it’s astonishing how powerful the TV presence is here. By far, the craziest lines are for Ballroom 20, which was almost entirely full of TV programming today (True Blood, Bones, Big Bang Theory, etc). Nowhere is it more obvious that pop culture is TV culture than at Comic-Con right now.
