    ^ Also heard on FB that Charlie Cox (Daredevil TV show - Netflix) will be coming too. Although it's FB so I'm not too sure if it's true yet.

    That's one major downside with having the Expo during tv shooting season.
    They're going to park their car over there. You're going to park your car over here. Get it?

    Wynonna Earp is corny but very fun fantasy/horror/modern western series shot in Didsbury and Calgary. The actress is a great deadpan snarker, and she gets extra credit for kicking arse while shooting the second season through the last three months of her pregnancy. The producers get credit for integrating her pregnancy into the storyline, having the character kick arse while very pregnant.

    Just reviewing the programming schedule for next weekend so I can make my own plans around it. Noticed that Shatner's panel is on early Friday night; a big change because usually the biggest names have their panels on Saturdays. Not sure if this is to boost Friday attendance (which is usually smaller than Sat and Sun) or if its because of the Gene Simmons gig in Hall D that night bumping the cosplay contest to an earlier time, or both.

    So, in order to see the panels what are the lineups like? I didn't get one of those "early entry" passes.

    ^ There will be lineups to get into some panels, but I don't recall any of them having to turn away people as far as I know. The big name celebrity panels are in Hall D so there's usually plenty of seating, you'll only have to lineup if you're brave enough to go up and ask a question!

    Just secured my weekend pass. Not sure if I'll make it tomorrow but will definitely go this weekend.
