San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) is fast approaching, and if you don’t have your hotel/couch/sleeping bag on a someone’s floor booked already, well, you should get on that.
This year’s TV line-up is extremely genre-heavy, with WB and DC Entertainment claiming a good chunk of the programming. A three-hour panel will feature “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Gotham,” and “Constantine,” with cast members from all four shows making appearances. Expect the line for this one to be impressive. The CW is also making a strong showing this year, bringing a total of seven genre shows to the big party, including freshman series “The Originals” and “The 100.” We’re certainly not complaining, but when did The CW become more sci-fi than SyFy?
And remember the 5-2-1 Rule: 5 hours of sleep, 2 meals, and 1 shower. Every day.
