California Here We Come

dexter_morgan.jpgIn case we haven’t plugged this Comic Con thing enough: our Science Behind the Science Fiction panel is Thursday at 5:30 and features Jaime Paglia (Eureka), Kevin Grazier (Eureka, BSG) and Phil Plait (our beloved Bad Astronomer talking about a very special episode of Dr. Who).

I will also take the opportunity here for a gratuitous swipe at a panel occurring at the same time as ours: Dexter. While I loved Michael C. Hall on Six Feet Under, why is this show at Comic Con? Is Dexter a comic book? Is it science fiction? Is it fantasy? The answer to all of these questions, of course, is no. And haven’t we had enough of serial killers, anti-heroes or not?

Boycott this panel (and come to ours instead). I will be the guy standing at the door handing out coupons for free magazines.

Some other events I’m checking out on Thursday:

The Dr. Who and Torchwood panels – 12:00 pm – Ballroom 20 – pure fanboy love

The io9 panel – 2:00 pm – Room 2 – trawling for freelance bloggers

Quantum Quest – 3:30 pm – Ballroom 20 – this is apparently an animated physics movie featuring the voices of Sarah Michelle Gellar and John Travolta. I swear I didn’t make this up.

HBO’s True Blood – 4:30 pm – Room 6CDEF – Alan Ball is back (see Six Feet Under above), this time with vampires.
