I was always guessing that the last season of GOT would air at the end of the summer, making next year the big blow out. We’ll see, since we still don’t know the air date for it. I think this is year is a perfect storm of off-scheduling, with GOT and Westworld both not returning for a year plus. I also think Netflix is likely to skip again this year for exactly the same reason. And we already know that’s why Marvel isn’t coming. Hopefully cool stuff will take their places, and I bet next year is going to be the return of everything.

I keep on forgetting that no formal release date has been announced for GoT. Even if the final season airs before SDCC 2019, I still think they're going to have a farewell panel. I feel like GoT is one of those shows that has really shaped pop-culture that it would be a crime for it not to have one last panel at SDCC.

Seems like, at least up to this point, that most of the drop-outs will only be affecting Hall H... CCI is lots more than just Hall H (although I know that for a great many people Hall H is where it's it).

My concern is if hall H doesn't draw the big crowds that the exhibit hall will be more crowded.  I am the only person who likes the Hall H lines because it take people off the floor.  :)

 Isn’t next year SDCC 50? It’s a great excuse to go all out.

Oh man I hadn't even thought of this.  My fear was that the no shows in Hall H would make Hall H worse on the other days. Like less people on Saturday for MCU would mean more people on Friday for HBO.  But now no HBO, maybe they'll all flock to Doctor Who.  But... this could be a more accurate prediction yeah.

Netflix isn't skipping. I got a press release this morning about Iron Fist.  It will be there.  Not sure about other properties, but at least one of their shows will be present.  The press release was very vague, though, so I'm not sure what capacity it'll be there.

This is great to hear!!

They've done offsites in the past as well so there is hope! I actually thought the Pixel movie offsite was cool.  Retro arcade games!

On the flip side, If people  are skipping Hall H, that gives me a chance to get into Hall. 2011 was a pretty bad Hall H year but I got to see Francis Ford Coppola demonstrate cutting movies in real time. Snow White and the Huntsman was not a movie I wanted to see but I did get to see Charlize Theron trash talking Kristen Stewart (and Kstew not being able to come up with a reply).

Not only does it affect the floor, but it has a cascade effect making Ballroom 20 almost impossible and crowding BCDF and down the line.

I feel like everyone is getting too worked up. Things need to change year to year. We tend to get to thinking in here that once something is there one year it's gotta be every year. It's not true and has never been true. The Con needs change and new things need to come and go. I'm excited to see what's NEW rather than sit here and lament crap isn't the same every year. I'm no Chicken Little, the sky is still bright, blue and wide open.

I've felt this way for years.  For example, on Sunday even the comic book area is very difficult to walk around and my theory is because all the people in Hall H and Ballroom 20 and those waiting in line are out on the floor.  Makes it very difficult to get around.

I guess I'm selfish, but people in hall H makes the show easier for me.  :)

I also agree with Louis-rob -m that the show is sooooooooooooooo much more than hall H.

Ohh good observation. Out of the 7 years I’ve gone I’ve only been on the floor on a day that isn’t Sunday ONCE.  I’m usually too busy with panels.  And that year I went on Sunday, too.
