BBP! Guide To Fan Expo Canada 2017: Day 2 #FXC17

So, how did things go yesterday? Did you find what was on your Holy Grail list?

Thursdays are meant to be a sort of Fan Expo Canada scouting mission – getting the lay of the land, what the price ranges are for the goodies you want, and meeting up with some friends…some of whom you haven’t seen in a long, long time.

Remember, it’s not a race – Fan Expo Canada is a four-day marathon.

But things really start to get heated today!

Still got those comfortable shoes on? Today’s a longer day, starting at 10 AM and running until 7 PM. So, loosen up those hamstrings and follow us into the fray of Friday’s Day 2!

Here are some of the things Biff Bam Pop! thinks you need to experience today!

BBP! Guide To Fan Expo Canada 2017: Preview #FXC17

There’s a well-known, partly tongue-in-cheek saying, that every Torontonian knows: The City of Toronto sees two seasons – winter and construction.

With the gut-bursting pop culture excitement of this coming long weekend, I’m wondering if we can’t add a third season into the mix, even if it is a relatively short one! Canada’s largest and most anticipated pop culture experience that ranges from comic books to movies and television to anime to gaming to toys…and so much more… is finally back!

Fan Expo Canada 2017 is here!

After waiting through twelve months of winter and construction, the most eye-popping weekend of the year begins on Thursday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and runs through Sunday afternoon. And, of course, Biff Bam Pop! will be there!

Here, then, is our prelude to all the sights, sounds, symposiums, breakout sessions, photo-ops and merchandise you need to experience over the coming four days…

With an expectation of over 129,000 people in attendance this year, make sure you hydrate, wear comfy shoes, and follow us around the pop culture floor of Fan Expo Canada 2017!

Riverdale: ‘The Outsiders,’ SE01 E08

So, confession. I’ve never read The Outsiders or seen the movie based on it. So if this episode has carefully crafted references to it, I am the last guy to catch them. Mea culpa!

This episode has two plots wrapped around it like strands of DNA. Neither of them can be considered an A or B plot. So let us simply refer to them as whiteand black. They’re as equally delineated by gender as colour.

This week on… Riverdale!

‘Riverdale’: How’d We Get Here?

Riverdale, when you think about it, is perfectly suited for the CW. It’s about the prototypical teen and his buds, and (as we’ve seen) you can do pretty much anything with them.  Archie has been a kid, a teen, and grownup to get married to both his high school girlfriends. He’s also fought zombies.  

No, I’m serious.

So a setting and characterizations as flexible as that is going to be able to to have some interesting adaptations to a high school TV drama.

We learned many lessons in last week’s season premiere episode of The Librarians. In this week’s episode, we learn never to rely on overly friendly, Canadian security guards or immortal trust falls.
