Popspotting #103: “San Diego Comic-Con Flashback” (Aug. 10, 2011)

1

Ballroom 20

It’s impossible to cover nearly a week of travel and pop culture craziness in fifteen minutes. Turns out it’s also impossible to do it in half an hour. Our longest podcast yet still doesn’t completely convey our glee (no pun intended) as we look back at our fourth Comic-Con, and at our first family vacation to San Diego.

Ryan shares some of the adventures he and eldest daughter Katie had at the San Diego Convention Center, and Jen recounts the kid-friendly sights and sounds of the surrounding city. We talk about where we went, what we ate, and what we saw, touching briefly on the preview screenings for “Alcatraz,” “Person of Interest,” and “Terra Nova” (and snickering at “The Secret Circle”).

If you’ve never been, we encourage you to consider attending your first “Geek Prom.” Thanks to the trainwreck that was this year’s advance registration setup, you have a better chance at 2012 passes than anyone’s had in a long time.

Glee Panel at SDCCWe continue our series featuring audio from San Diego Comic-Con panels. As always, the sound quality isn’t perfect, and audio levels can only be tweaked so far. Nonetheless, we hope it helps you feel a little closer to the wonder and chaos of this incredible annual event.

Today’s featured panel is “Glee,” which kicked off the Hall H program on Sunday. My daughter Katie was so eager to attend, we slept overnight outside the San Diego Convention Center. You may, in fact, periodically hear her voice on this recording (and my shushing!).

Here’s the official synopsis:

Creator/executive producer Ryan Murphy, creator/executive producer Brad Falchuk, and stars of Glee present a sneak peek at Glee The 3D Concert Movie featuring never-before-seen footage, behind-the-scenes secrets, and Q&A session.

Today’s featured panel is “Alcatraz,” on FOX, starring “LOST” alum Jorge Garcia. Alas, the show doesn’t air until next year. The Q&A portion, and thus this podcast, is only ten minutes long, because the Comic-Con session included a screening of the pilot episode. Here’s the official synopsis:

Catch a special pilot screening of Alcatraz, a chilling new thriller centering on America’s most infamous prison and the mysterious return of its most notorious criminals. When an Alcatraz inmate is discovered walking the streets of present-day San Francisco — not having aged a bit since the 1960s — a sinister threat begins to unravel. Where have these prisoners been? Why are they back? After the screening, there will be a special Q&A with Alcatraz writer and executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff (Lost) and series stars Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy) and Jorge Garcia (Lost). From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Alcatraz will air midseason on FOX.

Today’s featured panel is “Fringe,” on FOX. Here’s the official synopsis:

Fringe returns to Comic-Con with series stars Anna Torv, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Jasika Nicole, and John Noble and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman for a Q&A with fans and an exclusive video presentation. Delve into parallel universes and alternate doppelgangers and join the discussion about this critically acclaimed thriller as Fringe continues to explore otherworldly cases with endless impossibilities.
