SDCC 2014 Dan Harmon Times 2

30th July

 

Dan Harmon was the belle of the ball at SDCC this year. After Yahoo saved community from the cancellation bear and is going to have season 6 online at Yahoo. Then the second season of Rick and Morty is coming soon. Harmon was definitely riding high going into this years SDCC.

Thursday kicked things off with the Community panel with Harmon, Executive Producer Chris McKenna, Writer Dino Stamatopoulos, and actors Jim Rash, Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs who were still in shock after a last-minute pick up from Yahoo for their streaming service. Jacobs had gone through the emotions of the series coming to an end and working on a great show. McHale talked that he knew that someone would pick up the show. Harmon and McKenna is making sure that the show isn’t different from the previous NBC run. One … Read More »



SDCC 2014 Aquabats! Super Show!

29th July

We kick off our first story from SDCC 2014 with the Aquabats! Super Show! that invaded SDCC this year and they brought along a special guest host Triumph The Insult Comic Dog (and later Robert Smigel) to introduce the show. It was a packed room on Friday night and the room had a great mix of fans of all ages.

Here is the introduction from Triumph himself.

Then the cast came in to talk about what is going on with the show and it’s future. We have sadly found out that The Hub Network has in fact cancelled the show. The good news is that the band owns the show and is currently shopping the show around to studios and networks to try to get it back on the air. The cost of each episode is $300,000 and that is extremely inexpensive … Read More »



SDCC 2014 Aftermath

28th July

Well it’s been a very long week and if you followed our twitter feed you saw some of the insanity that is San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately due to the lack of good and consistent wi-fi at our wonderful hotel I was unable to update the site. I would have loved to get some of the photos and stories up on the site today but the lack of sleep, eating well and tons of walking have taken their toll. So hopefully I will get some stuff posted by Wednesday so you can see and hear about the things that went on at the show. So until then hang in there and check out the twitter posts over the past few days and I will try to get Shawn Burns to post his stories about going back again this year.

Thanks,

Steven

23rd July

ON THE ROAD!!

Pop Culture Maven is on the road today heading down to San Diego to cover the biggest Pop Culture event of the year. Make sure the you that you follow us on Twitter for the most updated news as the convention happens. I will try to update the site but it will depend on the internet access at the hotel. Last year it was dreadful and uploading anything was a nightmare. So we will see how it goes this year. If you are going to be in SDCC this year look for me in the Pop Culture Maven Official T-Shirt and say hi!
