Star Wars is Everywhere returns with Star Wars references on 30 Rock and Fringe, a tribute to the Daughter of Mortis, a CAT-AT, a mother who's daughters are experiencing Star Wars fever, and more!
Last Friday's episode of Fringe (which just got renewed for a 5th and final season) featured a leap into the future. I'd explain the wacky plot to you but there just isn't enough time at this point. What you need to know as a Star Wars fan is that a brain damaged Walter Bishop (John Noble) drops the fan favorite, "These aren't the droids you're looking for" to a security agent. After a long pause, he does conclude with "Move along."
For those fans out there who missed the episode Letters of Transit when it aired last Friday, it can be found on ON Demand or it will be available online as of tomorrow. It may already be available for HULU Plus users.
Last Thursday's 30 Rock infused a little girl Princess Leia costume in an episode that found Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) contemplating her previous desires for a child. She gives the costume away when she's leaning away from having kids only to have it given back when she realizes the desire is still there. Naturally, there is some nice Star Wars-themed dialogue sprinkled throughout the episode as well. If you have yet to see it, click here to view the episode titled Murphy Brown Lied To Us.

Davone at MentorPatch.com describes the Star Wars infection that has spread throughout her household between her husband and three little girls. Shockingly, the husband was the host but now the girls have the Star Wars fever! My favorite line from the article came from Devone's daughter Josie as she described why she loves The Wars: "?I like cool things. And it?s cool. That?s why.? Nice!
