Today was day four of San Diego Comic-Con, also known as the last day. I got up at 4:30 a.m. so that I could make my way to the Hall H line. I was determined to make it in to see the “Doctor Who” panel. I got there at 5:45 a.m. with my friends and we all sat down in line. After a little while I fell asleep on the ground. I woke up again around 8:30 a.m. and then after a bit the line started moving. I was crossing my fingers that I would get in the building and it must have worked because I made it in.
The first panel of the day was “Glee”, which I wasn’t overly interested in. I will admit to watching the first season of “Glee”, but I have lost interest. The only cast members present were Jenna Ushkowitz, Harry Shum Jr., Darren Criss, and Dot Jones. Being a fan of Darren Criss’s other work, I was excited to see him as was most of the audience. Quite a few of the questions were for him, so it seems that he has quite a large following.
The second panel of the day was for “Supernatural”, which I was excited for. Jensen Ackles opened the panel with a clip from an upcoming episode that he himself is directing. This is the second episode that he has directed and it seems to center around Sam’s childhood. Then the panel guests came out, which included Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, and Mark Sheppard. The panel was fantastic as the cast is hilarious. Then started the question period and one question sparked the answer that the show could go on for many more seasons. I don’t know how I personally feel about that, but I am happy for everyone in the cast. Then after a few questions from the moderator and the fans we saw a clip from the new Supernatural Anime Series, both Jensen and Jared lend their voices to the characters and the art looks pretty fantastic. To end the panel they showed the blooper reel from season 6 which just shows you how silly it can be on set.
The last panel that day was “Doctor Who”. I had been waiting all week for this panel and it was well worth the wait. A few of the writers attended the panel as well as Matt Smith and Karen Gillian. It was great to see how much Matt Smith was truly like The Doctor himself. Two people from the audience came up to ask questions with life-size Daleks. Matt and Karen seem completely genuine and it is amazing to see that almost everyone on the show is a fan of the show.
The “Doctor Who” panel was my last official event of Comic-Con and I must say it was fantastic. I loved every moment of being in San Diego and I cannot wait to go back for another year at San Diego Comic-Con.
