Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Sherin Nicole

This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Sherin Nicole may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Friday 6:00 pm: The Greatest Animated Films (Ends at: 6:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Jim Freund, Larry Hodges, James Maxey, Sherin Nicole (M), Michael A. Ventrella
A debate over a list of the greatest animated films. Can we agree on a top ten list for the best or will the panel erupt into fisticuffs?
Friday 8:00 pm: The 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 TV Seasons (Ends at: 8:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists: Drew Bittner, Perrianne Lurie, Sherin Nicole (M), Genevieve Valentine
What's on and what's worth watching? What worked and what didn't last season? Discuss new and returning science fiction, fantasy and horror shows on TV. Mid-season replacement shows are fair game too.
Saturday 10:00 am: Doctor Who at 50 and Beyond (Ends at: 10:55 am) Salon A
Panelists: Doc Coleman, Victoria Janssen (M), L. Jagi Lamplighter, Sherin Nicole, Jon Skovron
Name of the Doctor, Night of the Doctor, Day of the Doctor, Time of the Doctor, An Adventure in Space and Time - Did the 50th Anniversary live up to the hoopla? And going forward what are our expectations for Peter Capaldi? Will there be an episode simply entitled "Of The Doctor?" Is it time for Steven Moffat to step down as show runner?
Saturday 2:00 pm: Smart Women Foolish Television (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists: Barbara Krasnoff, Sherin Nicole (M), Janine Spendlove, Genevieve Valentine, Jean Marie Ward, Fran Wilde
We all have those shows we watch and love and maybe love to pick on because they are our guilty pleasures. We revel in their cliches and inconsistent writing and leaps of logic. Or in their bizarre yet internally consistent alternate realities (even if they're supposed to be based in the real world). Ahistorical historical shows and why we love their anachronisms.
Saturday 10:00 pm: A Whiter Shade of Pale (Ends at: 10:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists: Day Al-Mohamed, Shahid Mahmud, Emmie Mears, Sherin Nicole (M), A.C. Wise
The worlds of many fantasy/SF novels seem to be overwhelmingly white and European. It wasn't that long ago that Justine Larbalestier had to protest the use of a white cover model to depict her mixed race protagonist. Why do writers (and cover artists) do this? How can we bring diversity into our genres? Is it getting better? Are non-white authors and hero(ines) still rarities? Is the fear of getting it wrong overwhelming the desire to portray more diverse protagonists and non-Western settings?
Sunday 3:00 pm: When Did Fangirl Become a Dirty Word? (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Emmie Mears, Sunny Moraine, Sherin Nicole (M), Janine Spendlove, A.C. Wise
It used to connote enthusiasm, now it implies contempt. Why is this? What can be done to combat this attitude?
