Here a some of Friday’s panels at SDCC that we’re most interested in. What are you planning to see?
Orphan Black (6:00 PM, 6A)
Orphan Black is one of the best shows currently on TV and Tatiana Maslany is one of the most talented actress of this generation. She’s often plays more than six characters in each episode (sometimes four in the same scene) and brings something different to each of them. If you’re into clones, conspiracies and cults, this show is for you. Sure to be an awesome panel.
The 100: Special Video Presentation and Q&A (3:15 PM, 6BCF)
With Season 2 coming this fall, this will be a great episode to see a tease of what’s to come and ask questions of the cast. Who are the Mountain Men? What’s the mysterious white room?
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (12:30 PM, 8)
Mark my words. This video game is going to blow up this fall. We don’t know a ton about it, but early word is sounding really good. An original story in the Lord of the Rings universe, this game blends elements from popular games like Batman: Arkham City and Assassin’s Creed. Worth getting a first consumer look.
Legend of Korra: Book 3 (11:15 AM, Ballroom 20)
Korra is one of the coolest animated shows of all time. So it’s going to be a great panel. But a huge reason to go is just to find out what the crap Nickelodeon is up to? Just yesterday, they announced that they’re pulling the last five episodes of the season. Today, showrunners are saying that it’s not being cancelled, but it’s being moved digital. Interesting, considering Nickelodeon recently stopped digital sales of the show. The mystery better be solved at the panel. I need my Korra!
Arrow: Special Video Presentation and Q&A (5:30 PM, Ballroom 20)
The show is getting better and better and Stephen Amell ain’t bad to look at.
Cosplay 101: Costuming for Beginners (1:00 PM, 29A)
Cosplay is increasingly becoming the best reason to attend cons. The level of passion, detail, and dedication in some of the outfits is astounding. And you’ll never be part of a better community. Attend to learn or just to feel the love.
The Walking Dead (12:20 PM, Hall H)
Always a fan favorite. The next season looks to be one of the creepiest yet.
Game of Thrones (1:40 PM, Hall H)
One of the best, most brutal shows on TV. Few shows have such a stellar cast all around. It’ll be worth attending just to hear the roar from the crowd as each cast member walks out.
20th Century Fox (4:30 PM, Hall H)
We expect to hear about Let’s Be Cops, The Book of Life, The Maze Runner, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and Hitman: Agent 47. Cross your fingers for something about the Fantastic Four reboot.
Bob’s Burgers (4:00 PM, Indigo- Hilton Bayfront)
Even if you don’t watch Bob’s Burgers (and shame on you if you don’t) this panel will be hilarious because the cast is one of the funniest on TV.
Archer: Screening and Panel (5:00 PM, Indigo- Hilton Bayfront)
If you came for Bob’s Burgers, stay for Archer. Jon Benjamin (from both shows) is one of the funniest guys out there. And this show has the best running jokes in all of TV. Fans can expect lots of call outs.
