“What room are we in, Tim?”

Almost every panel at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con is held in the convention center, in one of the main halls. Ballroom 20, for example, is a sizable room and a lot of shows are having appearances there.

Friday will see Ballroom 20 hosting panels for Stargate Universe, Caprica, BSG: The Plan, 24, Bones and Dollhouse.  (Hmmm… I think I know where I’ll be all day Friday.)

So, you’d think that a big show like Heroes would be somewhere around Ballroom 20, or in one of the side rooms that aren’t all that small either…

At least that’s what I thought they’d do.  Every now and then, I’m wrong.  There, I said it.

Heroes will indeed have a panel and Tim Kring, Jack Coleman, Masi Oka, Adrian Pasdar, Zachary Quinto, Robert Knepper, Dawn Olivieri, Ray Park and Madeline Zima will be in attendance.

Sounds cool. But to attend the panel you will have to leave the convention center and head off to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, and find the Indigo Room.  Yea, it’s off-site from the convention center.

I don’t get it.  We can surmise that maybe someone goofed with logistics, or that the network might be focusing on other things.  I don’t know.

But they will be there.

The Heroes panel will be in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 25th at 3:15 p.m..

I’ll be adding this to the Comic-Con TV panel so you can see the whole collection of events there.

  1. There’s other events taking place at the Hilton throughout the con. The Hilton is as close to Hall H (south end of convention centre) as the Marriott is to door A. Comic Con really has outgrown the convention centre so alternative or additional locations even if removed from the main con are okay with me. I liked the use of Petco Park when “300″ was shown there. I’ve always felt there could be more use like that.

    Perhaps NBC confirmed too late to get scheduled into an on-site room. It’s pretty obvious that there’s been disruption with the show and a network that’s not really trying to help. Supposedly, 2 years ago when there was so many people that didn’t make it into the HEROES panel held in Ballroom 20, the con blamed the studio for not wanting empty seats so they chose the smaller room (instead of Hall H). If that is a true fact, perhaps this location is based on that same sort of thinking. No matter, I’ll find my way to the Indigo Room!

  2. do you need a comic con ticket to get into the panel at the hilton?

  3. That’s a good question, Ashley. At a guess, I would say yes, that they will check badges at the entrance to the ballroom of the Hilton.

  4. Ashley: Huh… I echo smegforbrain’s statement.

  5. This show SUCKED this past season

  6. not Dollhouse…what crap
