WonderCon in Anaheim, CA
I Wonder, Wonder, Wonder… CONVENTION PANELS, DAY 1
I began my weekend amidst a sea of fellow fanboys & fangirls, waiting for Anaheim to throw open their doors. It was a controlled sort of chaos as our lines wound up and down the palm lined pathway and finally into the mouth of Nerdvana.
I hit some panels first, opening with a 35th Anniversary perspective of Battlestar Galactica. Yay! It was good to see Richard Hatch again. He’s always got good Battlestar anecdotes. And there was a lot of Blood and Chrome talk.
Next came one of the hardest working women in show business, Felicia Day, and her Geek & Sundry partner in crime, Sheri Bryant. LUVED the Tabletop clips. And Season 2 is now in full swing! Fun panel, guys. Thanks.
After a couple of hours in the Exhibit Hall, soaking it all in and buying some fun stuff, I checked out the Beauty & the Beast Q&A. Kristin Kreuk is a sweetheart. They showed the first half of the Season 2 premier to get us all eager to start viewing in the fall. And after fielding some questions about it, the panel ended with a pack of tweens rushing the stage to get autographs from Kristin. She signed as many as she could even as security helped usher her away to the back. It was pretty crazy.
Last up for this short day of panels was the Science in Science Fiction discussion, where I watched a woman command a robot arm to give her a drink via electrodes implanted in her brain. SERIOUSLY. WOW. I recommend you check out How to Defeat Your Own Clone: & Other Tips for Surviving the Biotech Revolution.
