About "Torchwood: Miracle Day": Premiering July 8 at 10pm ET/PT

Imagine a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging. They get hurt and sick but they never die. This is the extraordinary premise of the highly-anticipated STARZ original drama series, "Torchwood: Miracle Day," produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for STARZ, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide. The new series, premiering on STARZ on July 8 at 10pm ET/PT, features Torchwood alumni John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Kai Owen and new headliners, Mekhi Phifer, Alexa Havins and Bill Pullman. Special guest starring actors in the cult sensation include: Arlene Tur ("Crash," Eat Pray Love) and Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under," The Other Woman). The 10-episode, hour-long series will also feature an impressive list of guest stars: Wayne Knight ("Seinfeld," Jurassic Park), C. Thomas Howell ("Southland," The Outsiders), Ernie Hudson ("OZ," Ghostbusters), Nana Visitor ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine"), John DeLancie ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), Mare Winningham (Mildred Pierce, George Wallace) and Frances Fisher (Titanic, The Lincoln Lawyer). The show's original creator, writer/producer Russell T Davies, serves as executive producer along with BBC Worldwide Productions' SVP Julie Gardner, with Davies also serving as show-runner. "Torchwood: Miracle Day" is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for Starz, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide.



About "Spartacus: Vengeance" (Premiering 2012)

From the time "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" debuted on Starz in January 2010, it established itself as an epic production with rich storytelling and visuals unlike anything seen previously on any TV show. Also starring John Hannah as Batiatus, Lucy Lawless as Lucretia, Peter Mensah as Doctore, Manu Bennett as Crixus and Viva Bianca as Ilythia, "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" was one of the most talked-about and best-loved TV shows of 2010. Season two of the series finds Spartacus and his fellow gladiators now out of Capua and engaged in the massive slave rebellion against Roman society that has echoed through time. "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena," the six-part prequel that told the story of the House of Batiatus gladiator school, and the intricate personal, sexual and political maneuverings in Capua five years before "Blood and Sand" was set, debuted in January 2011.

In season two of the popular series, Liam McIntyre takes over the role of the Thracian warrior sold into slavery in the Roman Republic city of Capua - where he rises to become the champion of the city - before leading the slave revolt that ended the first season. The part was played in the first season by acclaimed Andy Whitfield, who was forced to leave the show due to health issues. "Spartacus: Vengeance" recently began production in New Zealand.

I love Lucy, but if the panel wait is four hours long? I'll just stick to my memories and photos from her appearance at the 2006 con (which I attended; panels were just a little bit easier to get into in those days).

The only problem with that is that Comic Con has become an embarrassment of riches lately; you have pick and choose the events you want to 'camp out' for very carefully, otherwise you miss seeing a dozen others that are equally good. In theory, you could wait four hours for a nearly back row glimpse of Lucy Lawless (probably on a monitor screen above your head, as the stage is too far away, unless you're lucky or tenacious enough to score close seats) and miss a BSG panel, or a live performance by Bear McCreary, or gods knows what. Last year was the first year I deliberately avoided the 'panel mobs' and focused on meet-and-greets with the celebrities that I could meet in person (such as Malcolm McDowell), and I had a much better time for it (I only had to wait about five minutes to meet and shake hands with Malcolm McDowell! The frakking star of "Clockwork Orange" and "Time After Time"; I'm still in disbelief). I had a similar feeling in 2009 when I got to meet Leonard Nimoy and EJO; now I would've fought off a whole, screaming mob of angry fanboys for that opportunity if it came to that....

But this year? Who knows? If the panel is REALLY good enough and worth it (say, a "Blood & Chrome" screening with a cast Q&A afterward)? Then yes. I will brave the Soylent Green-sized masses and try my best to attend (if possible) ....
