Sdcc 2015: Highlights and Lowlights of the Con

20 July 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Each year, pop culture fans from around the world make their way to San Diego Comic-Con to bask in the glow of the largest convention of its kind, a singular experience that brings well over 100,000 people together to celebrate comics, film, TV, gaming, and much more. Most attendees differ in their primary interests, but one doesn’t make the trek to Sdcc without being a fan of something, and that shared enthusiasm is a big part of what brings people back again and again. This year, SoS’s Elizabeth Rico and Whitney McIntosh joined TV Editor Kate Kulzick at the Con.

Kate Kulzick: Another Sdcc has come and gone and finally, a week after it ended, I’ve recovered. It was an exhausting experience for me this year, and this was my fourth year attending—how was it for you guys? This was your first times, right?

Elizabeth Rico: Oh good, »

Fox releases trailers for their 2015-2016 new show slate

12 May 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.

First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.

From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »
