SDCC 2012 Recap: WB Preview Screenings Got Diva Googly-Eyed

Preview Night at Comic-Con went down at Ballroom 20 with the WB crazy-spoiling the fans by offering sneak-peek screenings of 5 upcoming TV shows.

Many toy collectors with Preview Night passes presumably headed straight to the show floor to get their exclusive and limited items but there were several other attendees who have been waiting for the preview screenings since early afternoon, including Red Dot Diva and her bunch of friends.

Promptly at about 6pm, officials opened the doors for Ballroom 20 and ushered those in line inside the venue. As they were at the front of the line already, Diva's group managed to get really good seats right up front in third row, near the giant screen on stage. The ballroom quickly filled up and it was more than half full at one-point.

The announcement "Welcome to Comic-Con International!" was met by an excited round of applause. Comic-Con has officially begun!!

After a short intro by a rather cute WB representative, everyone could finally settle into their seats for the nearly 4-hour preview marathon.

Oh. Before reading on, here's the mandatory warning.

SDCC 2012 Recap: Before The Madcap Geekout Began

The epic geekout week of 2012 was finally here!

However, as it turned out, Red Dot Diva's San Diego Comic-Con adventure began with an unfortunate 2-hr flight delay from Newark on Tuesday 10 July. As people waited impatiently to get on board so that they could get to be where they were supposed to, Red Dot Diva silently played "Spot the Nerds"... and she was right for most of them!

When she arrived at her San Diego hotel room about 9 pm, she found that it was already cozily filled with roomies - an international group consisting of a US West Coaster, a Kiwi, a (nice) Canadian, a token US East Coaster and a diva Red Dot Islander!

After a quick dinner downstairs, it was time to wind down and get ready for SDCC Preview Night. Before that happened, Red Dot Diva took some time to sync Thursday's plans with @eserei27. Trying to decide which Comic-Con activities to participate in has always been tough, but this year, it got even tougher!

Q&A With Adrian Paul - Immortals and Alien Invasion!

When Red Dot Diva was recently offered an opportunity to ask actor Adrian Paul a few questions by email, she could almost experience that powerful surge from ancient mystical origins --- the Quickening. *fangirl shudder*

Adrian Paul, who played the iconic character of Duncan McLeod in the 90's fantasy-adventure cult hit series “ Highlander” , still oozes exotic romanticism. And he has kept himself busy with doing several film and TV projects (“ Code Hunter” / “Tides of War” ) and is quite active in charity work.

Recently, Adrian lent his voice to "War of the Worlds: Goliath” (WoTW:G) - a 3D animation film on a Mars vs Man alien-invasion by Tripod Entertainment and creative talents from the USA - director Joe Pearson (Epoch Ink Animation), writer David Abramowitz (Highlander) and executive producer, Kevin Eastman (Heavy Metal).

To catch up with Adrian and find out more about his involvement in "WoTW:G", Red Dot Diva shot him a few digital questions:

Geeky Conversations For A Cause at Nerd HQ 2012!

NERD HQ 2012.

It was *the* schedule that SDCC attendees and fellow Nerds/ Nerdettes were eagerly looking out for!

After SDCC released their official schedules last week, Red Dot Diva and her friends were going crazy, and on edge waiting for more Nerd HQ information. Red Dot Diva's hair was all ready to fall out in agonized anticipation!

Finally, about a day ago, the Nerd Machine (founded by "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and his good friend Dave Coleman) released a sneak preview of what Nerd HQ's Conversations for a Cause panels are being slated for this year's NerdHQ.
