    people who bitch about this and hated The Last Jedi.

Yeah this too. I think the people who didn't like any of TLJ, Rogue One, Force Awakens, or the Prequels may have to come to terms with the fact that they just don't actually like Star Wars, and that that's okay, just like the people who don't remember Thundercats but are complaining about cartoons today actually just don't like cartoons.

There's a weird type of nerd who is convinced that to be a "nerd" you have to be into this whole canon of shit from 20 or 30 years ago, or otherwise you're a "fake nerd", a label that's usually applied to women and moderately hygienic or socially capable men, and other people who make the turbo-nerd feel alienated by liking some of the same things they do. Of course, the real "fake nerds" are the ones who built their identity on all this old shit that they've never even watched.
