I am the new head minion for the American Sci-Fi Classics track, where clever geeks and awesome guests talk about sci-fi TV and movies from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.We have a new track director this year, the illustrious Joe Crowe. If you've come to the ASFC track before, especially our "Stump the Geeks" panels, you know Joe.
I've been asked by Joe to put out a sneak peak at what you can expect from our new line-up this year:
8 Bits of Awesome
Bring your controllers as we take a loving look back at the golden age of video games. How Pac-Man fever infected everything from music to cartoons.
Manimal & Friends: Quickly Canceled Sci-Fi TV
Some of the most fun sci-fi TV came on two times, then nevermore. We’ll show the love for your favorite one-season wonders and ours (Manimal. Sweet Manimal.)
Agents of S.P.Y.F.I.
Join our double-oh status panelists as they take a look at all things Spy-Fi; movies and TV, serious and spoof -- and the 50th anniversary of a little film containing a guy named Bond, James Bond.
Join our zombie experts (do they have PhZs?) to watch an undead movie classic!
Here We Go Again: Sci-Fi Movie Remakes
Remakes, reboots, and re-imaginings. Which ones were good ideas, and which were regrettable regurgitations?
Ahead to the Past! Time Travel in TV and Movies
Talk about classic time travel TV and movies, from Time Tunnel to Voyagers to Back to the Future, as we look to the future, for that is where we will spend the rest of our lives.
And there will be more! We've got Farscape guests! Babylon 5 guests! Games! Contests! We also have a Facebook group, and will be putting out a call for people who want to volunteer to speak on fan panels once the full schedule is released into the wild.
And calling all arty types! We want logos for this track. It has to say "American Sci-Fi Classics" on it. We'd like one 80s-style, and one 70s-style. Send 'em to email@example.com. We'll sing of your greatness like dwarves!
