For the second year in a row the fine folks at Tampa Bay Comic Con gave us a panel slot, and we decided to record it in it’s entirety for you! If you happened to miss these fine gentlemen wax poetic about nerd stuff LIVE this time around, here’s everything we covered:
Game Of Thrones, our take on the 7th season so far [spoilers; skip to 4:25]
Stranger Things, season 2 trailer released
Thor: Ragnarok, early reactions
Justice League, relying too heavily on success of Wonder Woman?
Ready Player One, how did this even get funded?
Spider-Man: Homecoming, our mini-review
Overwatch, Doomfist is badass
Destiny 2, Lee talks the beta
Anthem, Destiny: Me too?
Kingdom Hearts 3, and we made someone rage quit the panel
A huge thank you to everyone at TBCC and those who attended and made our panel possible. Fingers crossed for next year!
Our very own Seamus Burke was able to interview the Lukas Litzsinger at this years Star Wars Celebration right here in Orlando. Lukas is the lead designer for the new card and dice game, Star Wars: Destiny by Fantasy Flight Games. Listen in below!
Here’s the entirety of the Rebels Season 4 panel at this years Star Wars Celebration. This was panel exclusively for press that includes cast members Taylor Gray, Tiya Sircar, Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum and creator Dave Filoni. We hear a bit about The Clones Wars, Ashoka and where season four is headed. We were luck enough to see an episode from season four and it was a bit darker than the usual tone. Our bodies are ready!
From a galaxy not too far away comes a look into Star Wars Celebration 2017 through the eyes of a few Space Dragons. Thanks to everyone we ran into for making this years visit to the show a complete success! Click the break to see a ton of photos we took at the show!
A belated May The Fourth Be With You, folks! We’re here this month with all sorts of glimpses into the future of our beloved nerdy franchises. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 may be rocking the box office, but we’ve got all sorts of footage from future Marvel outings such as THE DEFENDERS, THE RUNAWAYS, INHUMANS, and CLOAK AND DAGGER.
On the silver screen, there are trailers out for THE DARK TOWER, THE MUMMY, and KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE. Time will tell if they will be hits, or fodder for future episodes of the newly revamped MST3K which we are certainly fans of.
As if this wasn’t enough of a geek overload, Keenan and Seamus tell us all about their experiences at this years STAR WARS CELEBRATION. Look forward to some footage of their trip to hit the website soon!
Celebration Day 0 begins at five pm, Wednesday April 12th. Keenan and I had just got back from a booze and supplies run (mostly booze). We’re excited, packing for the overnight and preparing for the weekend.
“Let’s watch Rogue One and The Force Awakens! I really want to get pumped for the weekend.”
I agree, but am hesitant about timing. My father has instilled in me a wonderfully anal sense of being late for anything. I figure that we can watch Rogue One, then head over to the convention center.
Seven pm rolls around, and one of the more boring bits of Rogue One hits the screen. I check Reddit. The stickied post on /r/starwarscelebration is “Final word on line”, and is an hour old. My stomach drops. The line was supposed to open at 8. I tell everyone we’re meeting to get there around 9.
“It should be fine! Plus, I’ll get to nap a little longer”
I didn’t nap.
It wasn’t fine.
An unofficial line counting into the hundreds had formed outside the convention center starting at about three pm. Convention center staff had done nothing to disperse the line, and in fact told those lined up that their spot would be honored.
I relay this to Keenan as calmly anxious as possible. We wrap up the movie, finish up our packing and jet to the con. After a snafu in the parking situation, we walk friends in tow to the security hopper right at nine. The following scene greets us.
We spend the next hour collectively shitting our pants, dreading that all the waiting, poor planning, and bullshit pulled by ReedPOP will screw us into a streaming room for the 40th Anniversary Panel.
