The Geek Awakens: Our new show about a grown-ass woman who's never seen 'Star Wars'

Help this Padawan become a Jedi master.

Growing up, I didn’t watch the same movies or TV shows other kids did. While most of you were watching Goonies and playing Metroid, I was watching sports films and playing with an abacus. My mother was not born in the U.S., and my dad was an athlete who wasn’t into science fiction. 

So here I am: 32 with huge gaps in my geek knowledge. The best thing to do with this pop culture deficit? Launch a YouTube show, of course. 

We are excited to introduce The Geek Awakens! Every week, I'll experience a piece of iconic geek history for the first time, and I want you to come with me. If you like nostalgia and laughing, watch the first three episodes right here:

There are three rules for owning a mogwai, but please don’t tell me how to live my life.

My geek friends told me I have to watch Blade Runner, and I was like, “Harrison Ford and Daryl Hannah? Awesome, I love rom-coms!”

We hope you enjoy the new show. Subscribe to our YouTube channel so you never miss an episode. Or, if you’re more of a Facebook person, like The Geek Awakens Facebook page. We’ll publish all new episodes there too, along with behind-the-scenes photos, updates, and surprises. We love hearing from you, so be sure to leave us a comment wherever you watch. 

What should I watch, play, or read next? What do you like about the show? What should we change?

Help me Internet. You’re my only hope.

You don't know pure joy until you've seen this woman unbox a Chewbacca mask
At one point last year, you couldn’t even go into a grocery store without seeing something with a Star Wars: The Force Awakens label on it, and while the merchandise craze has mostly died down ahead of Rogue One’s release, Star Wars toys are still bringing fans joy.
