Last night, my wife, best friend and I attended the Torchwood: Miracle Day
sneak preview at Cinemark theater in Tulsa, OK. In summary: Fan-fucking-tastic.
They gave out tons of schwag and prizes, but alas I maintain my record of never winning anything. But no worries. It was mostly Cox/Stars schwag, and the coveted prize of an ipod touch was not something I actually need, anyway.
I met some bigwig marketing person from Starz in the hallway, but I had no idea who I was talking to until she returned to the theater, poised behind a microphone. The people running the event seemed totally clueless about the fandom they were about to be subjected to. Mua ha ha.
“Are you a fan?” She asked.
“Oh,” chuckling. “I’m beyond being a fan. I have every episode of Doctor Who and Torchwood, and I started the Tulsa Doctor Who Viewing Society in 1998.”
“I didn’t realize there were so many fans here already.”
The reps seemed positively astounded by the existing love for the show, characters, which is a good sign in my opinion.
Lastly, it was nice to see some familiar faces in the crowd. I really don’t get out much these days, being a daddy and all, so I relish opportunities to meet up with old pals. All in all, fabulous night followed by a quick bowl of Bun Cha Giao @ Binh Le Vietnamese Restaurant, perhaps my favorite eatery in Tulsa.Novachild on iTunesNovachild on AmazonNovachild on Twitter
