This past weekend, our fellow nerds gathered together in elaborate costumes and stylish geek-chic shirts to pay tribute to all the wonderful people and things that they love. The rest of us, on the other hand, sat comfortably in front of our computers and patiently waited until the internet oh-so graciously provided us with hours upon hours of similar footage and interviews from the event – minus the lines and immense crowds. Here are some of the highlights.
Trailer with the most zombies: The Walking Dead
This four-minute plus teaser teases a lot, considering the fact the cast and crew haven’t even finished filming the season yet! And surprise, it’s awesome. We return some time after Rick & Co. bring the remaining members of Woodberry to the prison. They’ve started a new kind of life, a flourishing democracy that has perfected the art of survival. Unfortunately, someone is set to destroy their home. Walkers are being shepherded inside and fed, summoned to attack the living. There’s only one choice, either die or run. Season 4 of the hit drama series premieres October 13th and, no doubt, the wait is promised to be long.
Trailer with the most laughs: The Big Bang Theory
The writers panel didn’t reveal much about the seventh season of our favorite geeky comedy, but they did put together this hilarious highlight reel.

Julie Plec: One of the things that people always say is that there’s no drama in happiness.

[Laughs] We’ll see how well we do with that. Source
