DVD Verdict - Entertainment News

Comic-con 2013 Sunday
July 31st, 2013 4:05AM

It seemed as though I had just fallen asleep when I was being shaken awake and told it was already 2 AM and we had missed our planned wake up time of 1 AM. But a glance at the clock confirmed we had merely misread the numbers and it was 11:56 PM, not 1:56 AM. Since we were awake we got dressed and went down to get in line for Hall H. We were there by 1:15 AM and it was amazing how many hundreds upon hundreds of people were already in line. I had doubts that we're going to make it inside the 6500 seat hall. I had just settled down to sleep on the grass and was dozing when suddenly all of the sprinklers turned on. It's funnier the more distance I have from it but at the time it was annoying. All told we waited in line over 8 1/2 hours but we made it into Hall H. Starting off the morning was Supernatural, and their annual gag reel presentation brought some much-needed energy to the crowd. Series stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki were on hand as well as series regular Misha Collins and recurring guest star Mark A. Sheppard. Surprising the boys was Felicia Day, who plays Charlie, and she announced that she would be returning for season nine. Breaking Bad was next and we got to see an exclusive preview of the final set of episodes. Bryan Cranston entertained the audience with a Walter mask. One of the main reasons for people to be in line for the better part of a day was to attend the next panel which was the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary. We were treated to an extended preview and got to hear current Doctor Matt Smith and his companion Jenna Coleman talk about their characters and where they think the series will go. We learned the 50th anniversary special will not only feature Matt Smith but also 10th Doctor David Tennant and to no one's surprise the Daleks. Exterminate! Knowing nothing could top the panels we'd seen, plus being so very exhausted, we decided to leave and spend our last few hours walking the Exhibit Hall floor as well as eating. Community and Its always Sunny in Philadelphia are shows we don't watch so we felt that it was karmic goodness to let someone else have our seats.
