Comic-Con 2014
Preview Night- The Flash

It was surprising to see so few people at the Preview Night screening of The Flash. A popular costume on the floor. A true comic book hero. Go figure.

It’s an interesting treatment of the story. Sort of like Teen Wolf meets The Vampire Diaries. It’s about good-looking young actors and TV veterans telling the story in the style of Spiderman.

Toy Story That Time Forgot, a new Christmas special featuring your favorite characters from the Toy Story films, is set to air Tuesday, December 2 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET). The special comes on the heels of the success of Toy Story OF TERROR!, which aired last October and did fairly well.

Joining the cast of Toy Story That Time Forgot is Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz, Kristen Schaal as Trixie, Kevin McKidd (“Grey’s Anatomy”) as Reptillus Maximus, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Timothy Dalton as Mr. Pricklepants, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Joan Cusack as Jessie.

Preview Night – Constantine

One of the advantages of attending Preview Night at Comic-Con is a chance to see several pilots before the madness begins. Here’s a flash judgment of Constantine.

This was the show that most of the crowd showed up for because the huge Ballroom 20 emptied immediately after. It’s based on the comic and the movie (which starred Keanu Reeves). It’s a promising idea, but the show has been plagued with issues, including a recasting of the female lead.

Last week we left with Paige doing the ultimate undercover to get to the bottom of her human trafficking case. When the group finds out what she’s done, it’s all hands on deck to find her.

So let’s not waste any time to get to what happened this week in “The Unlucky One.”

So You Think You Can Dance
Top 16 Perform, 2 Eliminated

Original Air Date: Ju1 23, 2014

Jules – Managing Editor

We’re down to the top 16, eight girls and eight boys. It’s getting harder and harder and this week, each dancer has three dances to perform. The top 16 group number, one with a partner and then another mini-group routine.

So, excluding the group dances, which, by the way, were all amazing. All three could have easily been my top three dances. The mini-group dances were my favorites that just showed so much greatness. It’s like all the dancers were renewed after their pairs dancing and with all the makeup on. Just see for yourself.

Anyway, on to the top three pairs tonight!

Only a handful of folks get into Preview Night and there’s a reason why — it’s not the most exciting night of programming. A couple pilots for TV shows get screened (more on that in the next post) and the floor is open. But there are few giveaways and mostly its people buying collectibles before anyone else.

Here’s a pictorial view of the evening.

For the next four days, the hallways will never be this empty again. Guaranteed.

If you’re lucky enough to travel to San Diego for the Annual Meeting of Geeks and Pop Culture Nerds, you probably aren’t sleeping tonight in anticipation. But put in a bit of planning before tomorrow morning and the next three days will go smoother. Really!

1. If you have to pick up your badge, get there really, really early. You’re going to have to wait in a line. The longer you’re in that line, the less time you can spend in a line for a panel. Dress in comfy shoes and forget the fur costume at home — lines often snake outdoors, where it’s very hot!

Relationships are tested in a variety of ways this episode and there’s one of them that may not have passed. We get to see “Walkerson” in Paris…and that totally doesn’t mean what you all are (probably) thinking. Meanwhile, Joan is trying to brace for the storm coming their way and Arthur goes on his first McQuaid business trip and he comes up against some unexpected fire.

Last week we saw that Jude was not talking to anyone. Jesus slept with one of Mariana’s friends. Brandon got high on a pot brownie on a hike with the band in the woods and told Lena that he had slept with Dani, his father’s girlfriend. That is a lot of surprises for one week. Are there more to come? I am sure there are. What will happen this week? We are about to find out.
