Fried-Day News Nuggets: July 26, 2013: Comic Con, Godzilla, Gaiman, and More

First off, this week saw Whovians across the globe, but particularly in the UK, losing their Who religion and getting absolutely nuclear level incensed over the release of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary trailer at San Diego Comic Con last weekend. They were especially angry since it was not released on line within hours of airing at the Con. It still hasn’t been released on line. http://www.digitalspy.com/british-tv/s7/doctor-who/news/a500281/doctor-who-fans-angry-at-comic-con-exclusive-50th-anniversary-video.html And it was announced today that the November 50th Anniversary Special will air at the same time all over the globe. That means while the UK is watching it at 8PM GMT, I will be watching it at 3PM EST and Los Angeles will watch it at Noon. It will air at 7AM in Sidney, Australia. http://www.digitalspy.com/british-tv/s7/doctor-who/news/a501432/doctor-who-50th-anniversary-to-be-simulcast-worldwide-to-avoid-leaks.html
