What should I go to? (Part 2)

The schedule is online for the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con. Below are some of the events I plan on going to. Today I will review Saturday and Sunday for what looks good and will mark the ones in red I will try not miss. I plan on taking a good number of pictures and will post them to my Flickr account.

Saturday

When a devastating car accident leaves Jaime Sommers (Michelle Ryan) at death's door, her only hope for survival is a cutting-edge, top-secret technology that comes at a hefty price. With a whole new existence and a debt to repay, Jaime must figure out how to use her extraordinary abilities for good, while weighing the personal sacrifices she will have to make. It's Jaime's journey of self-discovery and inner strength that will help her embrace her new life as the Bionic Woman. Ballroom 20
