Tribute viewers rate the sci-fi flick 4.3 stars. Read more

Some fans are content seeing the COSplay and wandering the floor of Fan Expo, maybe seeking an autograph or photo op. Others spend their time mostly in panels, listening to celebrities and other guests or maybe in an interactive or educational one, like learning about steampunk and Doctor Who. Today I found the North and South building buzzing with fan's excitement and most of it revolving around the North building room 105.

After a few minutes in the television series Bitten panel in south building, it was off to the packed The Walking Dead, the first of many great panels in room 105. Next up was Arrow's Stephen Amell full of stories and happy to answer fan questions, such as his workout routine (he Read more

Before their special ticketed Doctor Who panel, Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill also did dual photo-ops and I hear, Matt Smith even lined up in Arthur Darvill's autograph line, much to the delight of fans.

If you're a fan of COSplay there was plenty to see yesterday, both from fans and special presentations like the 501st Legion's Star Wars Read more
