Episode 1308 - RESIDENT ALIEN! Alan Tudyk/Alice Wetterlund/Corey Reynolds/Elizabeth Bown/Levi Fiehler/Showrunner Chris Sheridan! Jimmy was at San Diego Comic Con for the first time since 2019 due to the pandemic. In this episode, he had planned on just releasing an interview he did at SDCC with his friend Chris Sheridan, showrunner for the hit SyFy series RESIDENT ALIEN. However, the cast did a virtual press junket along with Chris so we're gonna include it all here! In the junket, Chris was there along with Alan Tudyk, Alice Wetterlund was paired with Levi Fiehler, and Corey Reynolds was with Elizabeth Bowen. They were roundtables so Jimmy only got in about 1 question per session but the 2 other press folks in the room asked excellent questions! I had an audio issue in the first room so I had to leave to fix it but came back for my question. Super fun time w/ each group. Alan and Alice each had us laughing our collective butts off! Meanwhile, in San Diego, Jimmy and Chris talk about what to expect for the upcoming 2nd part of Season 2. Will Darcy find love? What's up with that alien baby? How will Asta adjust from her actions in the last episode? Such a fantastic show. If you're not watching, go ahead and do so now. You will love it! Also, get a hold of us! Thanks for listening!
