The Con is coming! The Con is coming!

Yes, San Diego Comic-Con 2008 is just a few short weeks away, with good friends like Lost, Heroes, The Office and Dexter scheduled to attend. I was sorting out my personal itinerary and realized I might not be the only one trying to figure out what TV stuff is happening at the Con.

So I beat a few bushes (dirty) and flushed out (dirtier!) the schedule of TV-show events and panels. This is totally unofficial, unauthorized and subject to change (especially if there is an actors' strike), but click in for the current scheme of things as we approach Nerdvana.

Sidenote: If you have questions for Michael C. Hall or any of the rest of the Dexter cast, I will gladly and gleefully take them via email (, and try to work them in when I host the Dexter panel. Come and say hi, OK?
