But wait! There’s more! I’ve saved two special surprises for our last post. The first is our ScriptPhD.com one-on-one sit-down with 24 writer/executive producer David Fury. We go in-depth behind the show’s themes of terrorism, torture, national security and how they extend to the real-world law enforcement reaction to the show. We also have a free fan giveaway of three copies of the Comic-Con 2009 40th Anniversary souvenir books handed out only onsite.

Are you guys still staying strong and ready for more Comic-Con highlights? Good, I thought so. Saturday is always an action-packed highlight day for the Con, with the best of science and entertainment panels saved for last. And this year did not disappoint. We got an up close and personal view of the very last Lost panel ever as we watched right from the stage and bring you great pictures and highlights from the panel. Thanks to two great friends from the production crew, we were able to enjoy the controversial Futurama! panel from backstage, where we caught up with the writers and producers. Along with a full transcript of the popular True Blood panel, we had two more great press rooms with Fringe and MythBusters. To be a part of the Comic-Con action, please click “continue reading”.
Greetings! Day 2 of Comic-Con was a very scaryspecial occasion: Official Star Wars Day. Yes, the personal hygiene was questionable and the light sabers were many, but the ScriptPhD soldiered on to bring you our coverage of as much science entertainment content as you can pack in one website. Today we start by putting the science in science fiction with the special 10th Anniversary Farscape reunion panel, including information about their new DVD box set release and upcoming projects. ABC’s electrifying new science-fiction serial thriller FlashForward provided a world premiere sneak peek of the first 15 minutes of the pilot and a special guest surprised the audience. Our press room coverage from Day 2 includes some phabulous physics with CBS’s Emmy-nominated Big Bang Theory, including a one-on-one interview with Emmy nominee Jim Parsons, who talked to ScriptPhD.com about his journey into science and preparation to play a science geek, and Bones, including interviews with star Emily Deschanel and showrunner Hart Hanson. We also have our daily Comic-Con Costume of the Day and the Light Saber Count Tally. Stay along for the ride with ScriptPhD.com. Click “continue reading” for more!

Ahhhhhh Comic-Con! That great gala of gathering geeks. Nowhere else do you see grown men ask where the line is for the unicorn forest, feel out of place if you’re not dressed like a superhero, hear “Maus” and “Ghost World” referred to with hushed, reverent awe as “the classics” or witness a panel moderator pick a question from “the Wookie in the back… no the other one… behind the Klingon.” What started in 1969 as a small, impromptu conclave of comic book artists and fans has grown into one of the largest fan conventions in the world, with last year’s Con attracting over 150,000 devotees. Content has also expanded far beyond the graphic arts world to include must-see sneak previews and first looks of upcoming films, television programs, video games and novels. This year, tickets sold out faster than ever, but if you just missed out or couldn’t attend, fear not. Armed with a press pass and a vat of Purell (sadly, a Tyvek suit wasn’t available), Ye Olde ScriptPhD will circumnavigate through a sea of humanity to bring you exclusive wall-to-wall, behind-the-scenes coverage all four days.
