Ooohhh watching the premieres on the big screen sounds sooo enticing. I'm insanely jealous of anyone who gets to go to this...great actor line up too (also for SG-1 and Atlantis).

That's it! I'm moving to California :-( or Canada! They should have like a "Send a Poor College Student to Comic Con" competition or something. lol. Sort of like a scholarship program. No? Well, okay, I'll just save all my dough and go next year. I want detailed reports people :-)

I know what you mean! I started looking at post docs available in Vancouver! :o :D Mostly cos it's such a lovely city :p :D

Wonder how many people will be at these panels - I know Comic con itself is huge, but how many of those people would go to a BSG panel?
Be neat to watch the shows with a huge groups of fans tho :D

I did not make the BSG panel last year due to getting stick in the traffic from an accident on my way but I did make the Stargate one which was crowded. I'm going down on Wednesday this year for the preview night and staying through Saturday. I'm looking forward to seeing the first new episodes of each show on the big screen. My guess is that it will be pretty full since they are showing all three shows one right after the other - I'm sure I'll need to line up early to get a good seat. :)

I did get to meet Aaron Douglas last year because he hung out at the SciFi Channel booth for a long time talking to folks and signing autographs.
