It’s clear that the Geekerati run Hollywood, and that’s a win-win situation for Star Wars fans. Directors, producers, screenwriters, show runners and actors alike are showing their love for sci-fi, especially Star Wars in the TV shows and movies they make.
So it’s become a regular thing to spot a Star Wars reference in some of our favorite TV shows.
This week, the season premiere of the TV drama Lie to Me on FOX starring Tim Roth as a human lie detector had a nice Obi-Wan reference from a student who wasn’t cool with being put on the spot.
Eli Loker: “That thing you did where you looked down and away; that’s regret.”
Andre: “Ease up on the Jedi mind tricks, okay Obi-Wan. You don’t know me.”
