Great videblogisode! Chris, you are a glorious pervert. You may as well have just asked her, "Olivia, does this hanky smell of chloroform?"

Thanks... I think. Blame Adam Beach. He made me do it.

Ha! Adam Beach indeed. We all know you planted the idea in his mind in a complex dream, three levels deep, which (in relative time) took you 50 years to complete just so he would suggest the idea to you just in order that you could perv over Oliva Wilde legitimately. That's dedication to your audience Chris.

For that I thank you.

You should pitch the idea of Videblogisode man to one of the directors Chris. Who knows, this time in a few years you might be on one of the panels being interviewed.

Keep up the great work, these blogisodes are a real enjoyment.

Thanks to Chris and everyone involved.

Chris, I have no idea where you find the time to do these things. I almost didn't have time to sleep! Great running into you guys, althought we missed you for giant ice cream. Say hi to Sam for me. PS. Where did Con Man go????

Aw, shucks guys, thanks for the kind words. (And thanks to all the people who think we're twats for not posting!)

Mary, we were filming until 10pm Sunday night, truth be told, and Sam only finished editing Day 4 this morning. We may not be on time, but by God, we're committed.

And there'll be giant ice cream next year. Promise.

As for Con-Man, his whereabouts are unknown at this time. But someone who looks a lot like him is sitting at the desk next to mine right now. Couldn't be, though, could it...?

You guys are not anything if not commited (or should be, to an asilum). Let's hope we meet before then! And, ask the strange man next to you to speak in spanish, if he makes a funny robot voice while doing it, then it is Con Man!!!

OH MY GOD you got a Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock shirt!!!! Sheldon's insanity knows no bounds...
I can't wait for Cowboys and Aliens, I really can't. Harrison Ford is...well, we all know he can be insanely awesome. And the concept is pretty damn cool.
Also, loving the Iron Man mini-parody you did haha. Nice one.

At this rate there's going to be "Videoblogisode: The Movie" with it's own panel at next year's con.

Concise_Statement, I'm betting you haven't even met me. Wait until you do - I'm REALLY annoying then.

I apologise in advance for being the boring, grumpy chap, but this year's videblogisodes seemed a bit style over substance to me (improved production values duly noted, by the way).
My criticism is pretty straightforward: I'd have preferred to learn a bit more about the movies themselves. Videbolgisode Man and the different gags seemed to be a bit overwhelming in this instance, apart from Scott Pilgrim Fersus The World, that is.

However, I do appreciate the amount of work you put into these things - I do hope my expensive subscription has a part in financing all of this. If not: thanks for the generosity, Herr Bauer!

Well, Mr. Manfrendshenindshen, that's a fair point. We have enormous fun on the videblogisodes and would hate for them to become exactly like every movie blog out there. But perhaps sometimes the twinkle in our eye does overwhelm. Will keep a non-twinkling eye on that for the future.

However, in terms of pure content, there were so many interviews and so much content this year that we were pushing ten minutes with each diary. And we had to drop some stuff, too. Don't worry, you'll get to see it all in full, in time.

Also, God bless you for thinking that we have financing on the diaries.

C'mon, you swines, spill - how the HELL did you get rooms in the M******t? I'm guessing the greasing of palms greased, the sacrificing of chickens... Twelve months to go to SDCC2011 and getting rooms in Gaslamp is proving an absolute bastard already!!

I admit, the Videblogisodes remain a constant treat and this years behind-the-scenes action prove no exception - however, as this year was my first Comic-Con, my frustration at your journalistic ability to manoever between Hall H floor, Panels and Exhibit Hall with relative ease grew every passing day. I saw you in H-H, Hewitt, I saw you... smug swine! If only that bloke hadn'tve gotten in the way when I approached you at speed with pen in hand, I was only after an autograph...
