How Does Kryptonite Work? and Other Smallville Insights

By

If the title “Smallville Cast: Reunion of Lost Choices” makes you go “huh?” you are not alone. The personalities presented at 1PM on Saturday in the Hilton Grand Salon kept the audience in stitches but didn’t lend themselves to a sequential retelling of the stories. Moderator Thomas Parham’s introductions set the tone for the rest of the panel. Multiple-time guest star Erica Cerra and Season Eight’s Aaron Ashmore (Jimmy Olsen) came onstage without a hitch. Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum,

Babylon 5: 25 Years Since our Last, Best Hope for Peace

By

Twenty-five years ago Babylon 5 debuted as our “last, best hope for peace.” For an entire generation, Delenn, Garibaldi, Bester, G’Kar, Lando, and many more came into our homes weekly. They taught us how to get along, how to look past differences and find common ground, how to find peace, and how to kick butt. Sadly, we have lost too many of the main cast members in the intervening years, many way too soon. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of

Game of Bones: The John Barrowman Show

Game of Bones: The John Barrowman Show

By

It started with two scantily clad men in collars, and it just went down the gutter from there. Cersei Lannister—aka John Barrowman—defies description. If you have never seen him live, I really don’t know how to describe the debauchery that is John Barrowman. Because the Daily Dragon is a family-friendly publication, much of the panel cannot be recounted here in polite company. We will just tell you that his first story involved gay bars, drunk uber rides, and furniture on

By

We have a huge gathering of pop culture enthusiasts for a con in Downtown Atlanta. What do we do but play games? One of the most popular games at the moment is none other than the Niantic/Nintendo collaboration Pokemon Go. If you are not familiar with the game, crawl out from under your rock and give it a try.
