Comic-Con 2015: Thursday's CBS Block

We are at Comic-Con for the fifth year in a row! Last night was spent getting exclusive merchandise from Exhibit Hall and catching some of the Warner Bros. pilots, but now we're diving right into the good stuff!

Thursday we're starting off with a large block of CBS programming, including panels and previews for Extant, Limitless, Scorpion, Under the Dome, and Zoo.

These run from 12pm-3:30pm (PT) so it's a huge chunk of time for essentially one panel, whereas in the past it's been clear that 12-12:30 was Show 1, 12:30-1:30 was Show 2, etc. It also means that there will either be no swag or a large swag bundle, which is an interesting change from years past. Speaking of swag and changes, the Fulfillment Room is now being called Programming Premiums... though I don't think that'll catch on among veterans anytime soon.

Of this block of shows, I am most thrilled to see more Scorpion, which had a good showing last year and is easily my favorite drama from last season's premieres. I could care less about the highly discussed Extant, but Halle Berry will, of course, be a highlight. I've been on the fence about Zoo since it began its promotion cycle, but maybe this will turn me into a fan. I have not been enjoying Season 3 of Under the Dome, but it has such a peculiar following that I'm intrigued to hear what sorts of questions the audience in the room may pose. Limitless is the least publicized series on this mega-panel, so it's a bit of a mystery as to what they'll showcase there...

Stay tuned for posts as often as we can do them, or pop over to Twitter and Facebook for more updates! They are cracking down on electronic devices during panels this year, so if you see large chunks of time go by without anything, it's because we're being treated to special goodness!
