It wasn’t like Jake could very well say no to something like that... )

Moving on, Saturday was the day of the Heroes panel, which should have been in the cavernous Hall H, but NBC was apparently afraid that if there were any empty seats they’d look bad, so it was in the way too small Ballroom 20. Which meant that people were lining up at 7:00 a.m. to get in, and since we started the day at Pushing Daisies, we did not get in for Heroes. Which was bad mostly because Ballroom 20 was where all the rest of the good panels were on Saturday, and after waiting in line for a few hours we started to get worried that we weren’t going to be able to get in for any of them.

To illustrate, here’s a five-minute video of someone walking along the entire length of the line. Yes, it’s exactly that exciting. (And I suspect we’re probably in there somewhere, although I watched it through once and didn’t manage to spot us.)

Yes, I will eventually post the rest of my Comic-con reports, but ya'll who know me probably aren't surprised that I'm taking a long time with it. In the meantime, I want to talk about Stardust, because we went to see it last night and ya'll, this movie is AWESOME. No, really, it is. And I say this as someone who loves the book and has reread it recently (which is usually the kiss of death for my enjoyment of movie adaptations). They've made quite a lot of changes from the book, but they're pretty much all wonderful changes.

If you're not familiar with Stardust, it's based on an illustrated novel by Neil Gaiman and it is a pure fairy tale in the tradition of pre-Tolkien English fantasy, only with a lot more wit than you'd get from Lord Dunsany or the Brothers Grimm. In some ways it's like The Princess Bride and in others it's nothing at all like it. As Neil Gaiman said, "I don't think it has much in common with The Princess Bride, they're at present the only two things in that genre."

It's funny, exciting, romantic, thrilling, and delightful. Claire Danes, who's supposed to be dead to me, is undeniably perfect as the fallen star. And the male lead, Charlie Cox, is destined for a lot of boyfriend lists. Seriously, ya'll, this guy is CUTE. Go see the movie for him, if for nothing else. Robert De Niro appears as you've never seen him before, Ricky Gervais has a wonderful small part, and the whole thing's narrated by Ian McKellen. What more do you want?

On a completely unrelated note, I've been mainlining Jericho episodes and am now thoroughly and completely hooked. Please direct me to a support group.
