How many of you had serious jealousy issues last week as you watched the PaleyFest video? I certainly did! Sam, Cait and Tobias were as funny and cute as anyone could hope for, and we know that the attendees were treated to an early viewing of Episode 9. Reports are that the episode was fantastic – I think it’s no exaggeration when I say that none of us can wait!!!
You’ve all seen several interviews with Ron, Diana, Cait, Sam and Tobias – but Christina Salinas of Fanlanders Video Blog was able to talk with many of our fellow fans, both before and after the panel. She gave us permission to use this half-hour video of those interviews, plus a wrap-up of the panel.
And Koko Pipkin had the extraordinary opportunity to sit in the first row, from which she took some outstanding photos. She let us post a few of these. (If you watch the official Paley video, at one point Sam looks into the audience and smiles – you can tell he’s smiling at a particular audience member – that was Koko!!!)
At Paley, Koko got several items signed, including two copies of that great Cosmo magazine page with “The Hotness: Sam Heughan.” You have a chance to win those issues, and several other signed items, if you donate a small amount of money (and answer a question correctly, making this a legal “game of skill” rather than a “gambling” raffle) by going to the GoFundMe page supporting Àdhamh Ó Broin’s US trip, which begins later this week.
