WINNER: The TV Addict! Not only was this TV Addict the only reporter in the TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES press room with the cajones to ask Brian Austin Green about 90210, theTVaddict.com got a very nice shout out from star Thomas Dekker
LOSER: The TV Addict! Who apparently isn’t quite the Hollywood Power Player he wishes he were. How else to explain not being able to bypass around one thousand or so attendees to make it into the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA panel? But on the plus side, Ronald D. Moore [see picture above] and HEROES star Zachary Quinto did walk by whilst I waited in line. Oh the glamour of Comic Con!
WINNER: Showtime’s critically acclaimed series DEXTER played to a packed crowd of almost five thousand strong.
LOSER: Anyone who doesn’t own an iPhone or an iPod Touch. Since it was revealed, much to the disappointment of fans in the audience, that the upcoming DEXTER video game will only be available on the popular Apple devices.
WINNER: The marketing team behind EAGLE EYE, for their brilliant decision to provide the laptop toting, iphone using, wireless deviced obsessed patrons of Comic Con with FREE WiFi in exchange for viewing a brief trailer for the upcoming Shia Lebouf thriller. Hand down, best viral marketing move EVER!
LOSER: Shia Lebouf. Who this TV Addict was really hoping wouldn’t turn into yet another young Hollywood cliche. [see link]
WINNER: HEROES. Who used Comic Con to reveal to the world that HEROES has an excellent chance to, for lack of better word, not suck this year. Or as TV Squad’s Keith McDuffee said far more eloquently, “I’ll just leave you with this: I gave up early on HEROES last season, and just by watching this episode I think I’m coming back. I think even if you didn’t watch Season 2 at all, you can pick right back up again and be blown away. It’s definitely a game-changer of an episode, nevermind the season.”
LOSER: FRINGE. The highly buzzed about J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci, Robert Kurtzman [see above photo] series played to a half-empty ballroom and generated a surprisingly subdued reaction from the audience.
WINNER: 24’s Howard Gordon who wins the Con’s award for honesty by admitting that “perhaps it’s a measure of our desperation that Tony Almeida back” Adding, “He died on the page four times.” You Think!
LOSER: The cast of TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, who were told during their show’s panel, much to their [and the audiences] surprise, that one of them will die by season’s end.
WINNER: The readers of theTVaddict.com. Who will soon have the opportunity to win a Limited Edition DEXTER bobble head. So stay tuned…
