New York Comic Con 2017: TV Panels and Previews Galore

NYCC 2017: TV Panels and Previews Galore

NYCC Panels 2017

Another whirlwind weekend of New York Comic Con is in the books. For me, it was two full days of lines, panels, and free swag. So overall, I’d call the weekend a success. I made it into all the panels I wanted to (my strategy still works!), got to talk TV with some cool people, saw a lot of sneak peeks & “exclusive” trailers, and the weather couldn’t have been any better.

So after you cast your vote on Tuesday, why not take your mind off things with some TV.

Freeform's Dead of Summer

Freeform’s newest TV series Dead of Summer premieres Tuesday June 28th at 9pm. Created by Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, and Ian Goldberg of Once Upon a Time, Dead of Summer appears to follow Freeform’s traditional blueprint of putting young people in creepy situations (see also: Pretty Little Liars, Guilt, Shadowhunters, and Stitchers).

5 Times 90s Children’s Television Was Too Real

5 Times 90s Children’s Television Was Too Real

Sesame Street Goodbye Mr Hooper

Like any other kid who grew up in the 90s, my TV diet mainly consisted of Nickelodeon, Saturday morning cartoons, ABC’s TGIF block of programming, and the occasional free preview of the Disney Channel. Needless to say most shows were filled with slime, hijinks, hugs, laugh-tracks, and catchphrases, but every now and then an episode would drop a real life truth bomb on you. Here’s five episodes that chipped away at my childhood innocence.

When is it a Good Idea to Save, Reboot, or Revive a TV Show?

When is it a Good Idea to Save, Reboot, or Revive a TV Show?

Michael Ausiello’s Gilmore Girls revival announcement earlier this week filled my heart with glee. The final season of the series left a lot to be desired and I think we can all agree that we want to know what those last four words are. Besides relishing in the thought of revisiting Stars Hollow, this news got me thinking about the general trend of rebooting, reviving, and saving TV shows.

Easy TV Inspired Halloween Costumes

Easy TV Inspired Halloween Costumes

Need a Halloween costume? How about one that’s easy to make? Or even better yet, one that people will get?

The way I see it, you’ve got two angles to approach a TV-themed Halloween costume. Either pick something so mainstream it’s impossible not to know what you are or pick something that looks cool without context but will be recognized by other fans.

My First Free Comic Book Day

My First Free Comic Book Day

Even though I enjoy many forms of pop culture and have been to New York Comic Con twice in the last two years, I still haven’t picked up a comic book in a very very long time. (I used to buy Animaniacs comics and other random issues of X-Men and Wonder Woman from a local flea market circa 1995.)
