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

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.

Dragon*Con 2011 Video: ‘The Walking Dead’ Cast Eerily Silent About New Showrunner

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

The Walking Dead CastThe Walking Dead might be getting a 90-minute premiere when it airs its second season this October, but it’ll be doing so without original showrunner Frank Darabont, which has more than just fans concerned about the show’s future.

The show’s cast stayed silent about Darabont’s departure during the The Walking Dead cast panel on Friday at Dragon*Con 2011 — their first large public appearance since San Diego Comic-Con in July, after which Darabont was fired.

I’ve embedded a video of the panel below, but I feel obligated to give fair warning to the people who are only looking for spoilers: It doesn’t really contain much information about the next season. Oddly, there also isn’t any mention from the actors about what it’s been like working under new showrunner Glen Mazzara.

Dragon*Con 2011 Video: ‘Doctor Who’ Actor Sylvester McCoy Reveals Origins Of His Name
Tom Cheredar   |  

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Sylvester McCoy, the seventh actor to portray The Doctor on classic British TV show Doctor Who, revealed yesterday the melodic and humorous origins of his name during his first panel (ever) at this year’s Dragon*Con.

As McCoy explains in the video, which you can watch here below, “Sylvester” actually started out as “Sylvest.” It was coined from a song that he graciously performed for the crowd.

His surname came from “a bad joke.” And don’t get me wrong, if I typed said joke out in this post or retold it to you in person, it would most certainly be a bad joke. However, when McCoy tells it, it’s brilliant.

Anyone who doubts his abilities as a valuable part of the Doctor Who cannon would do well to watch the video below.

Dragon*Con 2011 Video: Sylvester McCoy Recites Lines From ‘Doctor Who: The Pandorica Opens’

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Sylvester McCoySylvester McCoy, the seventh actor to portray The Doctor on classic British TV show Doctor Who, made his first appearance at Dragon*Con today.

Not only did McCoy reveal the humorous origins of his name, but the actor also read a scene from recent Doctor Who episode The Pandorica Opens, which was originally performed by Matt Smith.

Why would McCoy do such a thing?

Partially, I think it’s because he is very fan friendly. The reading was done at the request of the panel moderator, who wanted to dispel the notion that McCoy was a bad doctor by giving him some decently written dialogue.

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

D*CTV, the good folks who provide video entertainment to the 40,000 convention attendees at Dragon*Con, has released a new sketch that picks fun at two characters that are either extremely loved or extremely hated the world over: Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

Below is the video they produced parodying the 1989 romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally — only using the two most popular characters from Twilight.

From the video description:

“Want to watch a movie about two people who communicate poorly and take far too long to hook up? Well, enough about Billy Crystal movies … here’s a Twilight parody.

SDCC 2011 Video: ‘Eureka’ Cast Discusses Season 4.5 & More
Tom Cheredar   |  

Week of Geek: SDCC 2011 Coverage - San Diego Comic Con

EurekaThe cast of Syfy’s hit TV show Eureka talked about what to expect in season 4.5 during a panel discussion on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con 2011.

Prior to the cast coming out, the network showed a trailer for the upcoming episodes, which revealed plenty of guest stars. The main draw of the season is definitely the appearance of Stan “The Man” Lee, creator of classic Marvel characters like Spider-Man, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, and several more.

“We’re all very professional adults on the set… but when we did that episode with Stan Lee everyone reverted to age 12,” said Wil Wheaton, who moderated the panel and appears on the show as Dr. Isaac Parrish.

The panel featured Colin Ferguson (Jack Carter), Salli Richardson-Whitfield (Allison Blake), Neil Grayston (Douglas Fargo), Felicia Day (Dr. Holly Martin), and executive producers Jaime Paglia and Bruce Miller. We’ve embedded video of the panel below (check back soon for our one-on-one video interviews with Ferguson and Day).
