    When half of a comment is on topic and half isn’t (especially when it was part of a larger conversation that was being removed), it’ll be removed. 😛

  • Glorfindel

    I’m at a loss as to why you deleted my comment Mike. I replied to something someone said, and then commented on the interview.

  • Cally

    By the way great interview!!

  • Evarinya

    Lol, that was really neat. Thanks Mike and staff!

  • Glorfindel

    “Say Cheese and Die”. Nice.

  • Glorfindel

    Granted, Tulkas, but I think that they would have a post about it. The news of the release date could very well be out before it’s mentioned in an interview.

  • ShurtugalLiam

    If that was aimed at my comment Mike, i apologise. And I’ll sign up your forums tonight (cause its filtered at school). I’ve just never trusted forums because i went on one before and got threatened for saying hello and nothing really was done about it. So yeah.

    Great interview btw 😀

  • Evarinya

    Awesome! Sounds neat 😀
    Good to have some news happening around here.

  • Tulkas

    Glorfindel- Unless the interview is on this website.

  • kal

  • Smoke

    Great Interview Mr. Patterson

  • MatthewPeterson

    Good news! My executive producer just contacted me to say that they’ve decided to archive the show early, which means you don’t have to wait until tonight to listen to it. Christopher’s interview is now available for anyone who missed the live show. His interview starts at about 17 minutes into the show.

    There are a TON of extra questions that didn’t air on the show, which we’re busy transcribing right now, but you can still listen to them right now on the site. This was one of my most enjoyable interviews to do so far. I was very impressed with Christopher. The main show will air again in 12 hours (9 pm pacific / 12 midnight eastern) and then tomorrow, it’ll be available 24/7.

  • SquallLeonhart

    Show starts at 9 a.m. pacific on 01/21/2010.
    Pacific is GMT -8, GMT being the time we use in the UK, so it starts in half an hour.
