I *think* that was two years ago?  I could be mistaken.

It was a Saturday panel two years ago.

I mentioned it on Reddit, but even if we don't get a panel for Stranger Things, they will still should be in the thick of a promo/press tour for the new season at that time. Possible guest spots on Conan (if he returns) or an offsite still seem likely to me.

I can see an offsite.  But I feel like promotion would die down (at least as far as panels and interviews) after 2+ weeks.

Too true.  I have ibuprofen with my coffee every morning which I think is a right of passage into my elder years.

It's tricky, and being sort of anonymousish here helps me vent about feeling old ever-so-slightly: my wife is 5 years older than me (and while she goes to Comic-Con with me on Sundays she doesn't participate on this forum) so I can't really say I'm old without the implication that she is then also old(er)  :P

Regarding Stranger Things, it would be tricky to have a panel. How do you have a panel where half the audience has already watched it, and half the audience hasn't? Two weeks is not enough time to ensure everyone's gotten around to it. So you would have to have a spoil-free panel, which would disappoint half the audience who wants the panelists to talk about whatever big plot twists happen in Season 3. Not saying it can't be done; it just would have to be very delicately handled. For instance, if one of the main cast members gets killed off, they should not bring that person to the panel, for (s)he might get a stronger-than-usual reaction, which would maybe tip off people who haven't watched Season 3 yet.

Even if they managed to curate a panel that was spoiler free, I guarantee the first question from the audience would address a huge spoiler from the latest season.  >:D

That panel from a few years ago was my son's favorite panel of the day, though that likely had more to do with Patton Oswalt being impeccable as a moderator.
