Well Comic Con was an absolute blast this year! A big highlight for me was interviewing the cast of Lucifer for High Voltage and you can catch my chat with Tom Ellis here. There was so much more great stuff like preivew night with all the pilots, seeing Olmec from Legends of the Hidden Temple on the floor at the Nickelodeon booth, sneak peaks at Arnold from the new Hey Arnold movie, voice over panel, Breaking Badder panel which included an FBI profiler (!!), Lucifer panel, Big Bang Theory Writers Room panel, Sherlock panel, and so much other cool stuff.

One more Comic Con down. High Voltage took things to another level this year and my schedule was mostly packed with press rooms, but I was able to get out to the floor and a few panels.  The best thing about Comic Con is all the amazing people that you meet anywhere you go, but, if interested, here is a recap list:

Favorite cast = iZombie

Favorite press room = Supernatural

Most anticipated new show =  The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake

Most anticipated new movie = Valerian

Most enjoyable panel = Orphan Black at Nerd HQ

Best swag = Marvel hat/Lucifer bag

Most amusing celeb run-in = being mistaken for a part of someone’s entourage (introduced himself as Scott maybe?)

Best extemporaneous chat = Tyler Hoechlin, about the All-Star celeb softball game (he was MVP)

Best hello = smile from Justin Timberlake

Best farewell = back to back hugs from Beau Smith and Tim Rozen of Wynonna Earp

Most unexpected “interview” = J Michael Straczynski

Most enjoyable pilot = Powerless

Favorite autograph = Sylvain Neuvel
Most delightful celebrity = Kirsten Vargass

Most star-struck moment = telling Antony Starr how much I love Banshee

SDCC winner = me, according to Jensen Ackles, for asking a question he had never been asked before

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 7/4-7/10

Posted on by .

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you are celebrating at a beach, pool, barbecue, or some combination of the above with friends. Or doing whatever it is that makes you happy. I don’t have any particular plans in mind today. I did some indoor grilling yesterday and I’m not brave enough for the beach so I’ll probably just be catching up on some television and hanging out with our new dog. I go hard. I know.

Live music is a little anemia this week with the exception of Saturday. In standard SD rule, everyone tries to do something on one day of the week instead of spreading it out. Ah well. Go out and enjoy stuff.
