It was the Ringer panel that gave out the tripod “stools” last year. While it was great they started to tear and felt a bit unsafe, so my brother and I both threw them out before entering Hall H on Sunday. That said, I already picked up a new one to bring with me this year.
The thing I’m most excited to see at Comic-Con is Breaking Bad, since they haven’t been there yet. Also interested in The Following and Revolution. However, if they are also showing the pilots at those panels (which I’ve seen), it doesn’t leave much time for actual Q&A. Looks like I will be doing my first press rooms ever (for the Syfy shows), so both excited and nervous for that. Also always look forward (*sniff*) to meeting up with you guys on Wednesday night and/or the NBC Party.
I get excited for Comic Con every year even though I never go. The thought of all those people gives me a panic attack in my living room. BUT, I love watching all the stuff people post – pictures, videos (TVLine) and I sit and watch as much of the shenanigans on NerdHQ as I can. (so thank Zac Levi if you talk to him)
Awkward is up there with New Girl for me. I watch every episode 3 or 4 times when they are new. I have even come to love Sadie this season. I hope they do some great things with her. Best love triangle ever. You like everyone and Jenna has great stuff with both Jake and Matty. That said – TEAM MATTY!!!
Can’t wait to hear all the great stories. Pictures of Eric Balfour this year?
