I think that the Syfy channel is one of the best out there, and they have been really good to us here at Three If By Space! I have not had the opportunity to experience San Diego Comic Con, and not sure I would be able to stand the huge crowds, as I am not a fan of them. I am a bit of a worry wart as well, afraid that I will lose something, and I am not a very patient person either. I have heard from fans about waiting in line for panels, and I am not much of a camper. That does not mean that the idea of getting my geek on at a Con doesn’t give me some excitement!
Since SDCC is not in my budget, and I am a caregiver to my mother, I can’t be thousands of miles away, so I always miss out on the cool stuff that happens at a Con. I have some great friends who attend, so I always live vicariously through them! They always post pictures on their Facebook page, and would live tweet sometimes! Now, thanks to the Syfy Channel, I can see some of it for myself! I hope that the cast and crew from The Magicians and The Expanse will be attending this year. I know that both shows will start filming season 2 soon, but I have my fingers crossed. I bet some of my fellow writers here at TIBS are excited about this as well, because we cover quite a few of the shows that SYFY brings to our televisions screens! You can read the press release in its entirety below!
