On Friday night at San Diego Comic Con, a select few attendees got to go to an exclusive Paper Girls screening at the Rooftop Cinema Club Embarcadero at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
Cast and creative were in attendance and walked the red carpet.
Those with tickets were provided with drinks and a range of food including a cheese and charcuterie box, pretzels, chicken wings, nachos and hot dogs.
The space was beautifully decorated to the show’s theme and there were photo opportunities with a bike.
On every chair was a Paper Girls bag filled with a poster, a paper, a box of popcorn and a LOT of candy.
However, the best part of the night was that fans got to see the first 3 episodes of the season. Creator Brian K. Vaughan introduced the episodes also revealing that it was the first time the cast were getting to see the show with their families.
It’s hard to do everything in a pilot episode. Whether it be character development, storyline introduction, correct pacing, action, comedy – something is often lacking which is understandable when you have to set up your whole series in under an hour. However, Paper Girls struck the perfect balance. It was one of those episodes that flew by and when it was ended I was shocked that 40 minutes had passed. It was edge of the seat viewing and left all the attendees wanting to see the next episode immediately. Clearly Amazon knew this when they organised the event as we were lucky enough to see the next 2 episodes. Both of the following episodes were also fantastic and it was honestly surprising to see how top quality every aspect of the production (cast, writing, cinematography, etc.) was considering this is its first season. Even 3 episodes didn’t seem enough and everyone was left wanting more.
Luckily, fans don’t have to wait any longer. The entire season of Paper Girls is now available to watch on Amazon Prime.
