I don't care for much television programming, but I love most of the animated shows. South Park, Robot Chicken, and Family Guy are my favorite things to watch once the little one goes to bed for the evening. I don't find everything about those shows hilarious and sometimes find that my beliefs are mocked, but I have a good sense of humor so I'm still a viewer.
I'm not just an uber-cool adult cartoon viewer, I'm also a sci-fi nerd. I know a lot about Star Trek (but, no, I do not speak Klingon), the many spin-offs, and all the movies. Cementing my reputation as a virgin-living-in-mother's-basement (okay, but I'm not really - suck it nerds!) is the fact that I love Star Wars.
My geekiness knows no bounds when it comes to Star Wars. I really love Star Wars. I don't love it so much that I dress up as Leia and attend conventions or anything (but I might, if I were encouraged enough), but I know quite a bit about even secondary characters. I still own several of my Star Wars books that I had as a kid; I know, I've always been a dork.
The marriage of animated programming with Star Wars is an epic win in my book. I had a total geek-out late last night and enjoyed watching Robot Chicken's treatment of Star Wars Episodes IV, V, and VI. Yes, I was up far too late so I could watch a program that is probably targeted toward someone half my age.
I'm super-excited to see the Family Guy treatment of Episode VI. It's a Trap! comes out tomorrow and I've been eagerly anticipating it for months!
