I've chosen to consolidate the last two panels on Saturday because I didn't get as many notes from them as from others. The Dick and Matt show was a lot of fun and included some tasty treats. The Jim and Misha panel was less rewarding to me personally because it had little substance, devolving instead into silliness. Not to say that silliness isn't fun, but it's not something I can take notes on and recap without losing its essence!
These panels – and the two Marks panel as well – demonstrated that our guest actors have learned a new trick convention goers should prepare for: when thrown questions they weren't prepared to answer, they turned the question back on the asker, putting them on the spot to provide their answer, and even pulling them up on stage to face the audience while doing so to make a point about how hard it is to provide such off-the-cuff answers and be entertaining in the process. So all those questions about “What would you do if...” or “How do you think this should happen” or “Describe [certain people on the show] in three words or less” are now fair game as things whoever asks them might have to answer, instead of getting answers from the guests. Beware!
There was also a really funny trend that started being called out by the two Marks in their panel and continued through the following ones, which boiled down to the guest pointing out whenever questions addressed to the guests were really questions about Jared and Jensen. As Sheppard put it, the typical such question ran, “I think you're wonderful, but what was it like working with Jared and Jensen?” They were funny about it and they all clearly do love the guys, but what made them light up were questions about their own acting, past or current projects, and topics of interest to them. Choose wisely, if you choose to ask!
