SDCC 2008: Once More With Feeling Screening

The screening of Once More With Feeling happened only after the powers that be at Comic Con negotiated with 20thCentury Fox, after a year of legal obstacles to permit this popular episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer to be splashed across the four big screens in Ballroom 20. And Whedonopolis was tapped to present this event, providing prizes and giveaways in the form of buttons and finger puppets and "parking tickets" to go with the singing and dancing anticipated by Buffy fans well heeled in the lyrics and the waving of lit cellphones.

SDCC 2008: Lost

In a packed Hall H auditorium, the lights went down to show clips from some of the special features on the upcoming Lost season 4 DVD box set. Included was a documentary about the Oceanic 6 conspiracy and cast interviews. Once that was over, showrunners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindeloff (wearing a "Trust Snape" T-shirt) stepped onto the stage. "We’re excited to be in the small room this year," joked Damon. "It’s just like a living room. Very casual conversation," added Carlton, referring to the crowd of 6500 fans. This is the first year the Comic-Con organizers have put TV presentations in the massive room. The two were seated by a large box with the Dharma Initiative octagon logo with a question mark in the middle. They started the panel by plugging LiveAutographs.com, saying that they and the cast were offering autographs to benefit Stand Up to Cancer.

SDCC 2008: Heroes

For the first time in Comic-Con history, television shows were presented in the massive Hall H auditorium. Your humble reporter arrived at the San Diego Convention Center at 8am Saturday morning to find that the line to get into the room had already snaked through the lawn and all the way around to the back of the building. Rumors had it that the end of the line had reached Seaport Village, over half a mile away, by the time the doors were opened. Needless to say, despite a widely acknowledged lackluster second season, Heroes still had plenty of fans.

SDCC 2008: Chuck

If the energy on the panel at this year’s Comic-Con is any indication, then the set of the NBC series, Chuck, is one of the liveliest and friendliest sets around. Because of the writer’s strike, it’s been so long since we last saw our intrepid hero and his assortment of spy and geek type friends. It was like a breath of fresh air to be back in the wacky double life of Chuck Bartowski, secret agent and not-so-secret nerd. Gracing us with their presence on the panel were producers Josh Schwartz, Chris Fedak as well as cast members Zachary Levi (Chuck), Adam Baldwin (John Casey), Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah), Joshua Gomez (Morgan), Sarah Lancaster (Ellie), and the "Awesome" Ryan McPartlin ("Captain Awesome", real name Devon). Even "Big Mike", played by Mark Christopher Lawrence, got a shout out as he sat with the NBC and WB studio folks in the audience.
