Comic-ConHQ Winter Series Showcase

Comic-Con HQ held their Winter Series Showcase last week, which included previews of three shows and the requisite Q&A with the stars, with a reception following. They have two scripted series set in and around comic conventions, ‘Kings of Con’ and ‘Con Man’, along with ‘Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest’, which we previously reviewed. The evening at the Paley Media Center in Beverly Hills included the obligatory “red carpet” stream of interviews, screenings and discussion, and a reception afterward.

Of Monkees, Wonders, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriends

Thanksgiving is coming up this Thursday, and like most of you, I’m thinking about what I’m thankful for this year. And, in a world that’s getting scarier and more infuriating by the day, one of the things I’m most thankful for is all the fun stuff that offers a bit of escape. Which is why this week I’m talking about the Monkees, That Thing You Do!, Adam Schlesinger, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
