Comic-Con Friday, part 1

The day started with a medium-sized wait to get into room 20, the big room for TV shows, with my friends. The word on the street was that it was going to be really tough to get in later for the Joss Whedon panel, and my friends were going to be there all morning for Stargate, so I figured I'd hang out there. I was giving up the chance to go see the Big Bang Theory panel, but it seemed worthwhile for the good seats for Joss Whedon.

Anyway, it turns out they give out "re-entry passes" so I could go out with confidence and watch Big Bang Theory and then get back to room 20 in plenty of time to watch more Stargate in the leadup to Joss.

Which reminds me, who can loan me various early seasons of Stargate?

So I watched the Big Bang Theory Panel... and the Sheldon and Penny were sitting awful close to each other :) Pics later. They were lots of fun; turns out the guy who plays Rajesh can't talk to women in real life either (ok, I'm guessing he was exaggerating here, but still...) Adam from Mythbusters moderated the panel.

At one point the Sheldon actor demonstrated the limit of his science knowledge by saying he recently learned that when you have a glass of ice water, the temperature doesn't go up until all the ice melts. "It sounds weird, can that be true?" The audience confirmed it for him.

Hm, what else happened there... sounds like Sara Gilbert will be back this season. And it sounds like I really really need to see the season finale of season 1. DVDs will be on sale later this year (September maybe? It's all a blur, I'm writing this a couple days later.)

Back to Stargate, caught the tail of SG-1 (where Richard Dean Anderson was hilarious), and the full Stargate Worlds panel (I wonder if this MMO will be interesting. Maybe...), and the Stargate: Atlantis panel. I'm not big fans of these shows but they were still fun sessions. And staying there meant I kept my good seat for the Joss Whedon panel at 1.

Next up: Joss Whedon.

We have SG-1 season 1 on DVD; you can borrow that.

As I recall, we liked season 1, didn't like season 2 at all, and liked the rest of the seasons until the last couple. (Like most shows, it was always variable from episode to episode.)

I am reminded of Pierre Bernard's "Recliner of Rage" bit (from Conan O'Brien) where he opined that SG-1 was better without Dr Daniel Jackson.
