Speaking of Starbuck, I was at the Battlestar Galactica panel this year. As usual, Katee Sackhoff was the life of the party. She must have been in a hurry to get there, since she obviously missed a few buttons on her blouse.
Jamie Bamber (Apollo) has a surprisingly high-pitched natural speaking voice. Michael Trucco (Anders) just kept talking about how surprised he was that he had a job.
Tricia Helfer (Six) seems pretty down-to-earth, even with her huge mouth of perfect teeth!
Then it was time for a few hours with those rockin' Minnesotans from Mystery Science Theater 3000! There was the reunion panel on Thursday, which I didn't see...but Joel, Trace, and Frank all showed up later to sign autographs and chat up the crowd. Frank's hair has turned white, much like Charlton Heston's in The Ten Commandments.
Then, it was on to RiffTrax Live, with Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy doing a live riff along with the Ed Wood movie Plan Nine From Outer Space. Where's Mike? Could he be behind that center podium, obscured for the whole show? All I see are those...orange track shoes???
Oh, there he is. The show was extremely funny...these guys still got it!
So, that's the update. Was this post long enough for you? Because I could make it longer, and talk about even more people you don't know! No? Okay, good bloggin' at you all!
