2012 ComicCon TV Recap: Preview Night
San Diego Comic Con 2012 officially kicked off Wednesday with badge pick-up at 3pm. For many, Preview Night is a chance to scour the exhibit floor for that particular Con exclusive that’s a must-have or to take care of any shopping that may prove difficult once the larger crowds show up for the official Day One. For others, it’s a chance to catch up with long-distance friends met and made at previous years’ Cons. Unlike the rest of the convention, on Preview Night there’s only one panel- the WB’s pilot preview. This is the fifth year the WB has premiered pilots at SDCC and, for the first time, they brought five to show. There was fairly positive reaction from the crowd to each of these, and most episodes had at least one extremely ComicCon-friendly gag (a Twilight joke in Arrow got by far the biggest laugh of the night). Last year’s slate of pilots was widely panned as one of the worst ever- hopefully this year will bring better fare. Here’s a brief look at each of the pilots previewed.
