Wow. The entire
day of Saturday October 9 at Comic Con NY
2010 was packed with so much fun, there
really is no one starting point. So, of
course, we'll begin with "V." :)
The V Con Panel,
starring Morena Baccarin, Laura Vandervoort,
Jane Badler and Executive Producer, Steve
Pearlman, was slated to start at 5:15pm with
an autograph signing to follow in a separate
room at Javits.
I met up with fans
Brian Tosko (President of The Jane Badler
Society) and Patrick Gillease (Co-Everything
of the International Quad V Fan Club that I
ran before the Internet was around.)
We immediately went
to visit SARAH DOUGLAS, She was contracted
by an Autograph company, so we had to go to
a separate area to buy her picture and a
ticket for an autograph.
Let me tell you how
incredible Sarah is. She is SO NICE. She
was wearing a lovely purple (passion!)
outfit and told us some great stories about
"V!" Most noteably how that was a WIG she
was wearing in V:TFB! At the time, Sarah
and Jane Badler had similar hair styles so
Sarah was given the wig.
resides in the U.K. and is looking after her
mother. Sarah also keeps her Los Angeles
apartment but for now spends more time in
the UK with family. For CCNY, Sarah was
staying in the West Village.
Sarah wanted to see
Jane Badler and vice versa, but the timing
was off. Sarah was contracted until 6:30 at
the autograph session...just when Jane's
autograph session was beginning.
Sarah made 2 videos
for the fans! I'll be posting them on
YouTube so stay tuned!
After a quick bite
to eat, Brian, Patrick and I headed into the
IGN Theater. We arrived super early because
we wanted to make sure we got seats. The
theater is HUGE with the Panel in the middle
of the stage and 2 large screens on the left
We were a few hours
early but of course, weren't budging. Alice
Badler arrived a little while later during
the "Battlestar Galactica" Panel and sat 1/2
on Brian's seat and 1/2 on my seat, in
between both of us. We were all squooshed
so close together! We couldn't help but
laugh so the guy in front of us turned
around and asked us to be quiet.
And then... <drum
roll> ... the "BSG" Panel was over and
someone came out and setup the nametags for
Morena, Laura, Jane and Steve Pearlman
scurrying around, taking their seats. The
entire theater filled up! While this was
happening, some fans recognized Alice and
came up to visit. We took photos, shared
stories and had a great time! We met Marga
from Spain and Audrey from France!
It was time for the
Panel! The moderator got us all excited by
dimming the lights and showing clips of
Season 2 of "V!" It started out with a
dream Erica was having that Tyler was
dying. The Red Rain was dripping on his
face. Erica saw Anna and scream-cried and
Anna said that Erica killed her children, so
now she was going to kill Erica's children.
When it came to
Jane Badler's first appearance on the show,
the audience went WILD. Screamed, clapped
and just hollared with excitement! It was
SO COOL how the editing was done that I had
You can read some
of the spoilers below.
The clips were over
15 minutes long. Right after, the moderator
introduced the 4 guests who took their seats
in front of their nametags. The moderator
asked a bunch of questions before opening it
up to the audience.
The first question
came from French fan, Audrey, mentioned
above. She asked Steve Pearlman if there
was going to be a REAL Resistance, not just
4 people pretending to talk about a
Resistance. The audience laughed! Steve
said the writers have addressed this and
they will be visiting different parts of the
world showing a growing Resistance.
The 3 ladies were
very funny. They made jokes and played off
each other very well. Someone asked if the
human skin represented the sex of the
Visitors and Morena responded something
like, "Do you mean 'am I a man?'"
When Laura was
asked what her favorite line is, she said
she has a lot of "Yes, mother"'s in S2, so
And Jane, you could
see, was just having a grand old time being
Steve Pearlman held
the panel together when the actors were
asked questions they wouldn't really know
how to answer. One of the things Steve
said, that Laura didn't know yet, was that
character Lisa was going to go through
puberty this year and possibly have other
male suiters other than Tyler.
After the panel,
the ladies and Steve were whisked off to
another room where the autograph signing was
going to be held. By the time we got there,
the line was immense. It kept moving
because originally, the line started near
the room, but as it grew, the convention
people had to move the line to a huge
conference room. Then every so often they'd
let some people out to stand in the "closer"
There were no
pictures allowed in the autograph room WITH
the stars, but you could snap a quick one
while you were on line. The line moved
quickly. There were a bunch of the V
Posters (same ones) and each star
autographed it and you could say 'hi' real
fast but that's about it. I got to shake
Steve Pearlman's hand!!
It was a very
exhausting and exhilirating day! Warner
Brothers and ABC did a great job! I'm so
happy I was able to spend this precious time
with my friends and the stars of "V!"
Special thanks to
Season 2 SPOILERS we learned at the "V" Panel. PS If you were there and
remember some not listed below, or if I got some wrong since I'm so tired,
me. Thanks :)
1. The 29 Mother Ship "Captains" come aboard Anna's ship. Some are
questioning that Anna has felt human emotion. Anna releases he lizard
tail, which is as long as the whip Indy Jones carries, and whips one of the
Captains to his death, and then peels his face off. She shows them there
is no mistake to who she is.
2. Anna cannot have any more children. It's now up to Lisa, who is
just hitting puberty in S2. So she's the equivalent of a 12-13yo girl in
human years. Anna has "the talk" with Lisa.
LAURA VANDERVOORT said Anna
was being creepy.
JANE BADLER emerges from a
cocoon type hanging thing in the red dress with high heels. She circles
Anna and tells Anna that inter-breeding with the humans is a mistake and that
the next closest "workable" planet is too far away. Anna admits, without
admitting, that the plan is not going as smooth as it was supposed to go.
4. Anna punches her mother, Diana.
5. Lisa, being a teenager, may have some other love interests than Tyler.
We find out why Tyler is "the chosen one." Lisa may have a "thing" going
with Joshua but probably not, since she'll possibly be exploring other options.
6. Chad Decker joins The Resistance. "Use me." He thinks he
knows Anna better than anyone. Hahahah!
was also on the panel, and
skidded around the question if any of the other original actors will be on the
8. The show will take on a
more global interest, showing Resistance members from other parts of the world
9. We will see more unmasked
lizard body parts.
10. They are in the middle of
filming Episode 6. So far,
interaction has been with
MORENA and one other actor.
11. Lisa visits Erica at her
house and tells her she's a Visitor and has no one to talk to. Erica says
she can talk to her.
12. There is Red Sky and Red
Rain, but no Red Dust.
13. Only 6 out of Anna's 12
remaining eggs survived.
OTHER CCNY 2010 "V" TIDBITS
(Cmdr. Pamela!) She is so
beautiful and sooooo nice! (more on Monday.)
2. The line for the "V"
autographs was so large, the convention had to cut it off.
3. The panel consisted of:
a very knowledgeable moderator,
MORENA BACCARIN, LAURA VANDERVOORT,
JANE BADLER, STEVE PEARLMAN.
4. At the autograph session,
immediately following the panel, everyone was only allowed to get one autograph.
WB handed out the "V" posters (the one we saw last year) and each actor (and
Pearlman) signed it, then you were out the door. Moved along very quickly.
5. The IGN Theater at Javits,
where the Panel was held, was PACKED.
was also in attendance and looked
