Last night on Saturday Night Live, not only did the show open with a surprise appearance by Will Ferrell as George Bush and was Chris Hemsworth the brunch-stalking host, but the show boldly stood up to the most dominant group of late 2015: Star Wars nerds. With all the nostalgia hype around Dec. 19th's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it's easy to forget is that many viewers will be kids who get into Star Wars for the first time, who will have hours of actual fun playing with toy versions of their favorite characters. Fun that will be ruined when they see the other people in line with them at the store: big old nerds who are really, really upset if their toys actually get played with.
