SNL vet and “30 Rock” creator/star Tina Fey chats with Crave Online about the show and why there seemed to be so many Star Wars references last season. The show recently won an Emmy, and we can’t help but wonder if there was a connection between getting an Emmy and dropping a few Vader jokes? We’re just saying…
Who is responsible for weekly Star Wars joke or reference?
Well, it started happening organically last year that we realized we had a Star Wars reference in almost every show. Then it became a thing where we tried to keep it going. I don’t think we got every single show but we have a pretty high batting average.
Is there one key geek who does all that stuff?
Robert Carlock, one of our EPs, is usually the resident expert. I can chime in a little bit but I’m not quite as good of a Star Wars wonk as he is.
