Boskone Schedule

In lieu of actual content, my program schedule for Boskone:

Saturday 11am
Tops on the Tube Tonight: Good New Genre TV Shows
Michael A. Burstein, Seanan McGuire, Jennifer Pelland, Eric M. Van

From Pushing Daisies and Eureka to Supernatural, Moonlight to Torchwood, Journeyman to Jericho, there s a fair bit of buzz in genre TV fandom about some new and newish shows. What separates the standouts from the nonstarters? What have they learned from shows and showrunners that have gone before? What offers any hint oforiginality? Where can you find the best writing? The most promising premise? The hottest honeys and hunks? And can the good survive?

Saturday 4pm
Battlestar Galactica Endings -- Roll Your Own
Michael A. Burstein, Jeffrey A. Carver, Craig Shaw Gardner, MaryAnn Johanson, Jennifer Pelland

Looks like we may never get an official end to the series. But hey, we're SF fans: we'll make one (heck, several) up. Conversation may also include but should not be limited to discussion of how BSG is (was) the awesomist esseff teevee evah!

Saturday 8pm
The Stories You Wish You Never Heard Of
Michael A. Burstein, Craig Shaw Gardner, Amy Thomson

Listen as our panelists tell you about the stories you never (ever!) heard of before!Hear the plot of classics like "Foundation and Empire Strikes Back"! and "The Lights int he Sky are Little Fuzzies".
