19 Comic-Con Highlights: OMG Stripping, NSFW Trailers, TRDMF Moments, LOL Rabbis and More

With every passing summer, the San Diego Comic-Con gathering grows bigger and more TV-ier, so it’s completely impossible to be at all places at one time. It is in that spirit that we offer this photo gallery of some of this past weekend’s highlights, including many contagious tears (Firefly and Fringe casts, we’re looking at you — and offering Kleenex), deliciously unscripted outrageousness, giddy Winchester brothers, good-natured rivalry between vampires past and present and so much more.

And for those who couldn’t stay glued to TVLine for those four days, here is where you can find all of our Comic-Con coverage, including recaps of the 20 hottest panels and more than 20 exclusive video interviews.

  • Yes, Darren replying to a question about not making Jewish characters on the show jokes WITH a Jewish joke…hilarious. Only not. He kinda missed the point.

    • Exactly! The best moment from Glee panel was Naya answering fan questions:
      Q: What advice would Season 3 Santana give to Season 1 Santana?

    • But that is Glee satire and parody. Rachel and Puck’s being jewish were a big part of their character’s make-up and Glee used euphemisms to create humor to a scene. Besides, Darren made light or euphemism at that moment-which I read to be very funny. I appreciated his timely humor. The Jewish faith or being jewish is not to be taken lightly but to be respected and honored. But for a story line for 2 characters who experience being chastised for their faith in a comedy, Glee has chosen to use euphemisms liberally and alter the mood in a given moment to emphasize its severity through humor.

  • What they’re doing with Defiance & who they have is incredible. I’d put money on the women stealing the show, but Grant Bowler looks a great choice of actor to link both the game and the series together because after he dropped the ‘party line’, he showed a bit of nerd know how which was impressive and encouraging.

  • Jensen, Jared and Misha are adorably goofy and friendly! We have the best cast on Supernatural.

    And it’s nice they’re finally getting some recognition, put in big Hall H and getting lots of press. They have worked so hard toiling in obscurity because Supernatural is the red-headed stepchild on The CW (though now we will have great company paired with Arrow on Wednesdays this fall, and a new CW president who is a fan of Supernatural, rather than the old one who only cared about the Gossip Girl type shows.)

    And now that the show is on Netflix and TNT a lot of new fans are discovering it who had stayed away because it was on the CW. Wednesdays are really gonna rock this fall!

  • Seriously Maggie Quigley fighting stuntmen was so much awesomeness that I still can’t fathom why the show has to fight for survival each year.

    • Is that Maggie’s real last name? Well Nikita is an awesome show but the demos are more important than total viewers

  • I think I would have passed out if I was there in person to see Joe Manganiello AND Chris Meloni girating on stage. It would have been worth the trip from NY to SD. LOL :)
