Michael Shanks re BURN NOTICE
Michael Shanks (Victor) on any potential resurrections: "It's been one of the most often asked questions I think to Matt [Nix] in the past year of the series. And I've been asked so many times. He's not wrong in this... certainly part of me would love for him undo it and make that character come back and I'd [drop back in] because that's a fun character to watch and a fun character to play. But, you know, this is a show, unlike the others shows that I do where characters do come back to life. I think I've died 17 times on other shows and come back. But he wants this one to be real. Especially for the last episode, the emotional impact of that, to then have the rug pulled out by 'oh, he wasn't really dead' and all this stuff. The character kind of went as far as he could."
Regardless, it was clear that the audience assembled were appreciative of the chance to celebrate the show, and it quickly became clear that this was to be the Bruce Campbell show.
After, of course, the applause for Michael Shanks, the surprise moderator of the panel, died down a bit. (rest at link above)
The panel itself opened up with a video montage which gave fans a look at each main character of the show. This led to a fun video with Jeffery Donovan doing a Michael Westen spy style monologue about Comic-Con. These videos were entertaining and got the crowd excited and ready for the insanity that awaited them. As per usual, the panel went into discussion style after introductions as Michael Shanks went down the line asking questions to every panelist before opening the floor up to questions.
Claudia Black / Ben Browder (Farscape)

Meanwhile, during the question and answer session, a fan asked Claudia Black, the voice of Chloe Frazer, about her time on The Dresden Files and if it was possible that she might make an appearance on Torchwood. Her answer was simple.
"Write to them and ask," Black said.
Some of the key people involved with "Farscape," including stars Ben Browder and Claudia Black, along with executive producer Brian Henson and creator Rockne O'Bannon, will be on hand at Comic-Con this year to talk about the amazing vitality of "Farscape," which ran on the channel now known as Syfy, between 1999 and 2003. The new DVD set is a collaboration between A&E Home Entertainment and the Jim Henson
The panel featuring the "Farscape" greats is scheduled for Friday at 10 a.m. in Room 6BCF at the San Diego Convention Center.
