Matt gave away some Family Guy boxers. That's it? It's over?

There we have it, the end of the world is coming.

Panel's over too...very anticlimactic.

Re: the family guy stuff
It seems from twitter that the panel was very disorganized and obviously didn't have as much merchandise to hand out as FG
Blame it on FOX being theidiots they are and underestimating the fanbase

Does that mean that if the VA dispute is not resolved the show won't go ahead?

Well, clearly Fox made the right decision in uninviting the voice actors.

I mean, if their ultimate goal was to alienate the fans, anger them, and have them considering abandoning the show. I have no idea how show business works, but I assume that's a good way to make money?

I'm confused. Did we not get anything whatsoever out of this?

Let's just say that the voice actors are going to get swamped at the signing session.

"it will go ahead if and when the voice dispute is resolved"  

So we have no definate answers to most of our questions, really.

We don't know:

-if the VA's will return.
-if the show itself will return.
-when the show will return, if it does.

So much we don't know, as well as if the Fox executive who did this was dropped on his head or not.

Only in the fact that the show runners did not stab us in the back.

And that Fox really are bastards.  So the world we imagined was real.

I want to hear some feedback from the VA's, and if they say anything, which isn't too likely seeing how they haven't at all. But anything from them.

I_c, what you're reading here is basically just a rehash of what you'll find on Twitter anyway. Please, I implore you, don't get an account. You'll just feel all dirty inside.

1BDI promised to keep us posted whilst in line to get the VA's autographs, right? I say just wait a wee bit longer.

I would normally think that as sarcasm but after the panel with MG and DXC asking for them not to ask questions about the situation, people might not. Most likely people will though.

Nope but some interesting ideas for storyline
edit Voice actors boycotted panel rather then being disinvited

Where did you hear that?  I don't remember that being said at the panel.

Posting from the autograph line.  Signal is incredibly sucky.  Got my question in (about the worm hole and where the show will start in the new season; Matt seemed to want to ignore it entirely but DXC insisted it be addressed in the first episode).  Will post more after I read the thread and see what's already been said.

Edit: Matt wanted to ignore addressing the worm hole in the show, not my question. :P

If I were Matt Groening I would put The Simpsons on the line. Perhaps the VAs from that could join in a sympathy strike. It worked here in the UK at that energy plant.

So, no Voice Actors at the panel, and it was really crappy...?
This is SOOO DEPRESSING! It's making me sick.
WHEN WILL IT END!?!?!

Does anyone have a video of the panel?

I found this:

Maybe that can give us some insight...

Yeah; no one said anything about a boycott .  Matt and DXC just insinuated that the negotiations were still going on and they hoped that everything would work out soon.

Re: Panel Organization- I definitely got the sense that it was haphazardly thrown together at the last minute.  No new footage, and all of the new information came in answers to fan questions.  The writers' notes were entertaining, but not really relevant IMO.

And that Nibbler costume was insane.  I was sitting across the aisle from that girl and she wore it almost the entire time. Everyone in the room wanted a picture of/with her.
