What Cons Are You Hitting This Year?

gdl-polaris1Last summer, I went to my first sci-fi/fantasy cons, and what an experience they were for this TV fan!

At Polaris 22 in July, I got the chance to see Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd, Moonlight/Veronica Mars star Jason Dohring, and Dead Like Me’s Ellen Muth. In August, it was FanExpo 2008, where I attended a fantastic BSG panel with Edward James Olmos and Aaron Douglas, and discovered the world of Smallville after checking out a session with Michael Rosenbaum and Laura Vandervoort.

There are so many cons and TV festivals being announced; most recently, PaleyFest 09, which I want to check out some day.  I’m hoping to return to both Polaris and Fan Expo this year, but my ultimate goal – San Diego Comicon!

So, any other TV lovers out there planning to hit the con circuit in 2009? And which ones would you recommend?

The Televixen’s Back!

Hello my television-loving friends! I’m back!

This fall has been so busy, but my oh my, has there been some great TV. I’ve been enjoying Season Five of Entourage, which has proved once again that Jeremy Piven is worth every single Emmy to date; and I was so happy to see the return of Eli Stone in one of the best premieres this year!

What else has this Televixen been watching? It’s more like what haven’t I been watching! Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has taken some interesting turns, and I am happy it’s been picked up for the entire season. Summer Glau’s performances in recent eps has brought a new dimension to this show. I’m also one of the people who has decided to stick with Heroes, and was very intrigued by last week’s ending. I was excited about this season early on, from the sneak preview screening I attended. In case you missed my article about the sneak preview, you can read it at The TV Addict. There are still some storylines that I don’t see the point of yet, but there have been enough twists, turns, and revelations to keep me committed to seeing this season through.

In keeping with the theme of heroes and villains, I’m interviewing Cassidy Freeman later today. Cassidy is Smallville’s new bad girl, Tess Mercer. I’ll have a link to that article later in the week, and more of my musings on the current TV season.

FanExpo 2008 in Toronto

This weekend marks my very first FanExpo in Toronto.

A full report will follow, but I thought I’d share a few highlights from Saturday.

The day began with meeting Battlestar Galactica’s Aaron Douglas (Chief Galen Tyrol). Then it was off to the Smallville Q&A with Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) and Laura Vandervoort (Supergirl). The day ended on a high note – a Q&A with film and television icon, Henry Winkler. The child in me was thrilled to shake hands with the Fonz, who is a gifted and inspirational speaker!

The moment I’ve been waiting for all weekend takes place this afternoon – the Battlestar Galactica Q&A with Edward James Olmos and Aaron Douglas! And so I’m off for the final day of FanExpo 2008!
