Earlier this week, you read our take on the Battlestar Galactica panel at this year's New York Comic-Con, but now - thanks to NBC/Universal's Hulu - you can watch it for yourself. And, also thanks to the wonder of the internet, you can read just why panel moderator Marc Bernadin stayed away from the tough questions. Both of those, plus the exclusive NYCC Venture Bros. preview, under the jump.
Over at Entertainment Weekly's Popwatch blog, Bernadin explained his journalistic outlook about moderating the panel:
It's not a time for hardcore investigative journalism. Whoever is on the panel — and this time, I had three of the final five Cylons (Michael Trucco, Rekha Sharma, and Michael Hogan, pictured) — can't answer the tough questions. And the last thing I want is for them to get stone-lipped and reticent in front of a packed house. Silence is deadly. So I've gotta offer them questions that they can answer at length while being both interesting and non-revelatory. In other words, cheat the crowd without them being upset about it.Judge for yourself whether or not you feel cheated:
And that's not all, in terms of NYCC-exclusive material that's now making its way online: Almost all of DC Comics' panels are available as audio podcasts from their site, and much more entertainingly, the brand new Venture Bros footage has also made its way online:
It's just like being there! But without the crowds, unpleasant body odors and having to deal with thousands of people wearing Skrull masks!
