Reverie WonderCon Screening Date

wondercon_logo_765x679As reported by KM UK last week the new NBC sci-fi-ish drama series Reverie will be getting a special preview screening at the upcoming WonderCon convention in Anaheim, California.

In the past couple of days a full schedule of the 3-day event has been released so we can now pin-point when and where that screening will take place.

The whole event kicks of at lunchtime on Friday the 23rd of March 2018.  Sci-fi fans aren’t morning people :-)  Turn up a little late and you’ll miss Reverie as it is scheduled for 3:30pm on that first day.

The screening will take place in the recently opened North section of the Anaheim Convention Center.  First used in September 2017 this annexe adds a significant amount of extra space and is accessible via a covered walkway from the main three halls.  The room in question is called North 200A.

As things stand it does not look like any of the actors or producers will be attending but who know what might change in the next two weeks.

So that is Friday, 23rd March, 3:30pm, room North 200A.  Got it?

The Comic-Con website HERE has all the necessary details.

Reverie @ WonderCon Anaheim 2018

artwork_002Well at least some people are going to get to see Reverie this month.

A preview screening of the show pilot/first episode will be screened for attendees of the WonderCon Anaheim 2018 event.

Running for the long weekend 23rd-25th March the Comic-Con-related convention returns to the northern Californian, Orange County city of Anaheim for 2018.  It is primarily a comic book show but has expanded to include films/TV based on superhero characters.  They’ve obviously stretched things further to include a TV series like Reverie.

The specific timings on the Reverie screening have not yet been revealed but for now more details on the event and tickets are available on the Comic-Con website HERE.

Summer Reverie?

artwork_002Now the Winter Olympics (well done to all that competed) is out of the way I was looking forward to an all out Reverie promotional assault from the NBC network.  Just a week to go until a brand new series hits the US airwaves.

It is still early in that 7-day countdown, but the lack anything during the time that so many eyes were on the station’s output for two weeks of snow- and ice-based sports was a little concerning.  No trailer and no press releases giving the official details of the new VR drama starring Sarah Shahi (Person Of Interest), Jessica Lu (Awkward.), Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes), Dennis Haysbert (24), alongside Kathryn.

Spending a little time today looking into what must surely be an oversight by NBC today has brought some disappointing news to light:  we could be looking at a June (and late June at that) première for Reverie.

The early March release looked so set in stone.  Even officially released Reverie artwork (as seen above) included a reference to it, albeit not including the specific date.  They must have meant it at the time.

As Reverie was a ‘mid-season’ show, and therefore set to replace something else, presumably one of the new shows that started last September has been more successful and had its run extended.

It is unlikely now that Reverie will start next week, but we will have to hope we won’t be waiting until the summer.

Complete Reverie Season 1 Episode Titles

artwork_002Following on from the post a few weeks ago KM UK can now bring you the complete list of episode titles from Reverie‘s first season.

The final two titles have been revealed to fill out the 10.  Number nine is called The Key and the finale is Point Of Origin.

Personally I’m surprised that the last one doesn’t have a more ‘ending’ themed name.  Perhaps it hints at things coming full circle.

Reverie is due to hit the TV screens in the US of A in March next year.

Here is the complete list in table form.

Ep # Title Comment
1 Apertus Latin for ‘open’
2 Bond. Jane Bond
3 No More Mr Nice Guy
4 Blue Is The Coldest Color
5 Altum Somnum Latin for ‘deep sleep’
6 Pas de Deux A ballet term for a duet dance. French for ‘step of two’
7 The Black Mandala A mandala is a type of spiritual symbol
8 Despedida Spanish for ‘farewell’
9 The Key
10 Point Of Origin

Reverie Season 1 Episode Titles

artwork_002Over the past few weeks the titles of the initial episodes of the new sci-fi-ish drama series Reverie have been released.

As regular viewers will be well aware Reverie stars Sarah Shahi (Person Of Interest) as a former hostage negotiator brought in to help extract people ‘stuck’ in a virtual reality environment.  Our Kathryn is one of the key supporting cast as a member of the department of defense which is very interested in this VR technology.  The military wanting new stuff rarely means good things!

As we’ve now got the first six names I thought it would be a good time to compile the ones we have so far into a list for easy reference.

Ep # Title Comment
1 Apertus Latin for ‘open’
2 Bond. Jane Bond
3 No More Mr Nice Guy
4 Blue Is The Coldest Color
5 Altum Somnum Latin for ‘deep sleep’
6 Pas de Deux A ballet term for a duet dance. French for ‘step of two’

Many TV shows follow quite fixed patterns for their episode titles.  Friends always used “The One…” and The Big Bang Theory makes theirs sound like scientific studies to name two.  As you can see Reverie has gone for much more mixed bag.  There’s some cultural references (“Bond. Jane Bond”) and some Latin in there.

Obviously, each title relates to the content of the episode in some way so it will be interest to see how they tie in to each plot line.  Feel free to speculate.  Apertus is a good start for a opening episode and could be to do with the opening of the Reverie virtual world created by Jessica Lu’s computer wiz Alexis Barrett to customers/visitors.

As mentioned in an earlier post it is looking like Reverie will start on March the 6th (a Tuesday) next year and continue the 10 episode run on NBC uninterrupted, ending on the 8th of May.

It seems that the show is still in production but can’t be far off finishing the main filming process.

Update (13th November):  I very nearly wrote in the piece above that posting with 6 titles released would mean more would be within hours.  So it came to pass.

Two more Reverie episodes have been named.

Ep # Title Comment
7 The Black Mandala  A mandala is a type of spiritual symbol
8 Despedida  Spanish for ‘farewell’

Hopefully we can put titles to the two remaining episodes soon.
