Little Geek’s Reaction to Star Wars “Bomb” is Brilliant

Do you recall that moment when you found out that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father? I sure do and I remember feeling a little bit queezy and terribly, terribly excited. This was the biggest bomb dropped in my lap since I found out that Santa was my mom and dad. In truth, a larger piece of me died the day I found out who Darth Vader really was vs. Santa being mom and dad down stairs. There are just some things in this world you should not know.

As a pure Geek, I was not about to let my little geeks watch Star Wars starting with Episode 1. Essentially, this was my “finger” to Lucas for having wrecked my childhood memories with Jar Jar Binks and making Darth Vader whiny. Sadly, I did not film my little geeks’ reaction to the movie when they found out about Luke’s lineage. Needless to say, it was epic. Lucky for us, however, one Parent Geek did have the foresight to record it! The end result is pure nostalgic and geeky goodness. Enjoy!

I wonder if Lucas will wreck this moment for future geeks with his new upcoming super-duper re-re-re-release of the movies? I wouldn’t put it past him…
