SDCC 2012: With The ‘Firefly’ Reunion Panel Wrapped, How Long Until A ‘Serenity’ Sequel?
Tom Cheredar   |  

Firefly Cast

With San Diego Comic-Con’s Firefly 10th anniversary reunion panel now wrapped up (watch the panel here below), we all know pretty much exactly what we did prior to it happening: Creator Joss Whedon loves this property possibly more than anything else he’s done to this point in his career.

The panel itself was set up by The Science Channel, which has been airing the 13-episode series on the cable network to great success. It’s even planning to do a special feature video that’ll air later this year.

Towards the end of the panel, Whedon made a heartfelt speech to fans that seemed to indicate that there’s more than a glimmer of hope left for the series to once again take shape on the big screen beyond the new Dark Horse comic book series coming later this year.

Tom Cheredar   |  

Pedobear

Not to get everyone riled up, but San Diego Comic-Con International’s management team just sent out a bulk email informing attendees of this year’s show that strollers (both regular and jogging) are no longer allowed within most areas of the convention space.

Meanwhile, dudes creepily dressed as Pedobear and… creatures dressed as furies will be allowed in without so much as a second thought by convention security.

Social Blend Podcast: Episode #200 Is Here!

Social Blend Podcast

Behold, rambunctious geeks of the Internet, a new milestone of independent news media has just been reached. This week, the Social Blend arrives at episode 200!! What does that mean? Well if you aren’t already excited, then for shame. And if you’ve never listened to Social Blend, then #200 is a good round number for you to start.

I remember the early days of the show, with a much younger Jay Fowler (aka SilentJay74) and a much more Australian-ian Greg Davies (aka cGt2099). It was good times that always kept me entertained within an hour (unlike those bastards over at The Drill Down… which, as a former host, is mostly my fault. heh).

SB has had tons of awesome guests over the years, including G4TV’s Chris Gore, Badass author Ben Thompson, Star Wars‘ official social media chick Bonnie Burton, Nataly Dawn from the awesome band Pomplamoose, and the firey metalhead from Roadrunner Records known as Jeremy Rosen, as well as regular guests such as myself.

Geeks of Doom vs. New York Comic Con 2011

NYCC 2011You can expect more “beautiful”-looking zombies, some new characters, and a whole lot of death in the second season of The Walking Dead.

With the premiere of AMC’s hit show premiering tonight, the spotlight was on the show’s cast and crew at this year’s New York Comic-Con panel.

The show’s panel on Saturday included Walking Dead creator and extraordinary comic book scribe Robert Kirkman, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, co-executive producer and special effects guru Greg Nicotero and most of the show’s cast, including Jon Bernthal (Shane), Laurie Holden (Andrea), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Chandler Riggs (Carl), Norman Reedus (Daryl), and newcomer Lauren Cohan (Maggie).

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Wil WheatonBoth fans and cast members of Syfy Channel original TV series Eureka lamented on the show’s cancellation during a Eureka panel at Dragon*Con 2011 Sunday.

But the sad news of Eureka‘s death didn’t make the panel any less entertaining.

For instance, Wil Wheaton (Dr. Isaac Parrish) fulfilled an audience member’s request for details about Eureka’s upcoming fifth season by miming the last scenes from the finale.

Check out the video embedded here below…

Dragon*Con 2011 Video: D*CTV’s Avengers Anti-Drugs PSA Parody

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Captain America PSAThe folks at Dragon*Con TV have released yet another of their humorous videos that play on all the panel screens while people wait in line and such at Dragon*Con 2011.

The latest video features members of Marvel’s most powerful superhero team The Avengers trying — and failing — to produce a public service announcement advising children not to do drugs.

The humor of this situation — as many long-time fans of the comic book know — is that Tony Stark (a.k.a Iron Man) is a recovering alcoholic while the team’s star spangled leader Captain America owes all of his powers to experimenting with drugs.

Dragon*Con 2011 Video: ‘Eureka’ Star Colin Ferguson To Direct Syfy Original Movies

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Eureka's Colin Ferguson and Chris GauthierColin Ferguson, who plays Sheriff Jack Carter on sci-fi TV show Eureka, will direct at least one future Syfy Channel original movie, the actor announced during a panel Sunday at Dragon*Con 2011.

In the past, fans have often ridiculed Syfy’s made-for-TV movies, which feature hokey stories and awful dialog — especially when compared to the network’s original TV shows like Eureka.

Like the good sport he is, Ferguson also poked fun at past Syfy original movies along with the other fellow cast members on the panel, which included Wil Wheaton (Dr. Isaac Parrish), Jordan Hinson (Zoe Carter), and Chris Gauthier (Vincent) as well as the show’s science consultant Kevin Robert Grazier.

Ferguson and Wheaton recited a list of story ideas for possible movies that Syfy executives rejected, like The Mexercist, Diary of Anne Frankenstein, and Manchilla (a movie about a creature that’s part-man, part-chinchilla).

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Tenth Doctor And K9Simply put: Doctor Who is huge at this year’s giant geek gathering in Atlanta, Georgia, known as Dragon*Con.

Seriously though. The abundance of long colorful scarves, sonic screwdrivers, and dalek dresses is ridiculous and wonderful all at the same time.

Because of this (and due to the fact that I co-host Geeks of Doom’s Doctor Who podcast called the TARDISblend with Greg Davies), we’re presenting you with the best Whovian cosplay we found covering the convention floor.

Dragon*Con 2011: Quite Possibly The Best TARDIS Dress We’ve Ever Seen (Photo)

TARDIS Dress

Among all the great Doctor Who cosplayers at Dragon*Con 2011 who turn props from the TV show into elegant dresses, none of them come close to the one we spotted in the photo above.

Modeled after the Doctor’s police box time machine, the TARDIS ballroom dress was created by Kelldar, who is known by frequent convention goers for her awesome costuming skills.

Kelldar said the inspiration for the dress came after getting an incorrect shade of blue — “TARDIS Blue” as she called it — fabric for a Marie Antoinette dress she wanted to make. Rather than ship it back, she decided to go with it.

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

The Guild PanelThe leading ladies from hit web series The Guild made their way to Atlanta this weekend to join in the geeky celebration that is Dragon*Con 2011. And fortunately for us, they even participated in some panels about the show.

Amy Okuda (Tinkerballa), Robin Thorsen (Clara), and creator/star Felicia Day (Codex) spoke about their past experiences working on The Guild as well as what fans can expect from the next few episodes and future seasons of the show.

If you didn’t already know (and if you’re reading this far into the article, you probably should), The Guild began its fifth season in late July. The most recent episode, Revolving Doors, aired on the show’s official website this week.
