Comic-Con 2012: TV Experts Reveal What They're Most Psyched About
It’s no secret that the annual San Diego Comic-Con has exploded into one of the biggest multimedia festivals in the world. And when it comes to television, there doesn’t seem to be any other place where small screen fanatics can find their favorite shows, producers, writers and hot actors in the same place at the same time.
Celebuzz already told you what we’re most looking forward to during the fest, but it never hurts to get a second, third or maybe fifth opinion from those in the know. So, we turned to some of our buddies who cover and write about television and entertainment and asked, “What are you most looking forward to at Comic-Con?”
Read on to find out how the TV experts answered our question.
Teen Wolf Panel, Thursday at 2:30 PM, Room 6A “I'm looking forward to the Fringe and Teen Wolf panels, because they represent one show wrapping up its run and another that's shaping into a long-running hit. The fact that Fringe is in Hall H is less about ratings and more about fan love, which is what Comic-Con is (and should be) all about. And Teen Wolf may be the newer kid on the block, but it is having a strong second season. And it is growing in buzz worthiness due to story by Jeff Davis and his writers as well as delicious eye candy!” – Jim Halterman, Entertainment Reporter, AfterElton.com
A Conversation with Bryan Fuller, Saturday at 1 PM, Room 7AB “Definitely can’t wait to see the Bryan Fuller panel, “A Conversation with Bryan Fuller.” The man knows how to write character-driven stories with a complex ensemble cast. I’m curious to see more of what he's got in mind with re-telling The Munsters, a classic television series, in the upcoming Mockingbird Lane while he also takes on the gritty Hannibal." -- Connie Allen, Writer and contributor, Blast Magazine
Fringe Panel, Sunday at 10 AM, Hall H “What I am most looking forward to is the crowd at Fringe's final panel on Sunday. The fans have been so amazing over the course of the show's run, and I've heard that there's a group planning a special salute to the cast when they take the stage. If they pull it off, it may be the one of the greatest Con moments ever.” -- Damian Holbrook, Senior Writer, TV Guide Magazine
Supernatural Panel, Sunday at 11:15 AM, Hall H “When Jeremy Carver left the Supernatural writing staff to executive produce Being Human, I mourned for months. So, I'm excited to see what he has in store now that he's returned to the SPN fold as the new showrunner. The panel always boasts a hilarious preview of the show's latest gag reel, and with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, Mark Sheppard and writer Ben Edlund in attendance with Carver, I'm sure the presentation will be both fascinating and nice to look at.” -- Laura Prudom, Associate Editor, HuffPost TV
Tokidoki booth #4731, Special appearance and autograph session, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM daily “I am most looking forward to my interview with the artist/co-founder of Tokidoki, Simone Legno. I've been a huge fan of his work for years and have been going to his signings. I love his collaboration with Hello Kitty, Sandy and some of the cutest, most amazing drawn characters he's created. This is the first time I'll be able to have a conversation after following his work for so many years.” -- Joei Nguyen, Entertainment Writer, MSN TV
