OneMinuteGalactica is back — or never left — I’m not sure, I haven’t been paying strict attention — with “The Sith Who Stole Christmas.” Honestly, if Obi-Wan had said “The three words that best describe you, and I quote, are stink… stank… stunk!” to the charred and partially dismembered Anakin at the end of RotS, and maybe held his nose and made an exaggerated “P-U!” motion, the entire prequel trilogy would have been redeemed for me. Thanks to Jamey B. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
