THURSDAY, JULY 21
Awake: Since the trailer was unveiled at NBC’s upfront presentation in New York, this spellbinding sci-fi drama about the power of the mind from the brilliant creatorsHoward Gordon (24) and Kyle Killen (The Beaver) has been one of the most eagerly anticipated series of the 2011-12 season. While most viewers will have to wait months to sample this series about a detective Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter)desperately straddling two realities as he copes with immeasurable grief, Comic-con fans will get an exclusive first look at the entire first episode of the series,and an audience with Gordon, Killen and star Isaacs.

I can't believe the good press this series is getting. I hope it goes over as good with the viewing public.

Where is Comic Con being held this year? San Diego?

Comic Con is indeed in San Diego. It runs 4 days: 21-24 July next week. Tickets sold out in November. There was no way of knowing last year that Jason would be in a pilot that got picked up by NBC and that he would be at Comic Con.

I live 15 miles from the Convention Center. So, yes, I'm bummed. :bang

I remember last year, Jason was supposed 2B there, for Batman voice over ...he wasn't

Helen is spot on: tickets for this event sell out very quickly, it's crowded and expensive...

the traffic and people outside are nutz...

I never knew this was such a big event, until last year...and the networks take full
advantage of it. They showed the first teaser trailer for POTC4, which by last count
has earned over 907 million worldwide...

The crowds? Don't get me started. DH and I were supposed to meet some friends there for dinner last year. I held onto DH's hand so tight for fear of getting lost in the crowd, that he had cramps in it. When we (a) finally found our friends, (b) managed to fight our way to the restaurant, and (c) got seated, he could barely hold the fork. I grew up in NYC, so I know about crowds. But Comic Con is hordes. Mad, screaming, crazy-costumed hordes.

Is Comic Con something fairly new? I use to have friends in the area and they were into all this stuff but never once mentioned it. Just curious.

Comic Con used to be a nice little opportunity for comics fans to get together and maybe meet the writers and artists - somehow, in the last 10 years it's turned into a big media event where film and TV companies premier and try out their latest product.

I expect that the real comics fans have arranged their own convention elsewhere that they don't advertise. (And I can't blame them.)

I believe it's been here in San Diego for 40 years. Don't know if it goes back further than that elsewhere.

Kate, Marie, Helen and I were lucky enough to secure these hard to find ComicCon tickets at the last minute.
We were there at the panel and the Fox booth autographs signing. Have lots to report, loads of pics and some good video footage to share. Will be able to do it on Sunday when we get home.

The Pilot was AMAZING. Jason was incredible. *sigh*
He also was so kind and gracious and even spent a little private time with us. Details will be forthcoming.

So pleased Char, Kate, Marie and Helen were able to go to Comic Con. Even more so that they got into the Awake panel and meet Jason. Can't wait for the pics.

Fab pics Kim from Awake Fan. Poor Jason is certainly rushing around with lots to do.

Have to admit the stubble looks very nice.

Hooroo,
Carole
