Midday Open Thread:  OMG You Guys Sharknado + Star Wars?
April 2, 2016

The Force is with us this weekend, because...

Shark Vader is on his way.

"Sharknado 4" has officially announced its title and premiere date, and "Star Wars" fans will surely get a kick out of it: "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens" is the cult franchise's latest installment's title, Syfy unveiled on Friday, and it's likely going to be the most clever thing about the TV movie, which will premiere on Sunday, July 31 at 8 p.m.

TV Insider has plot details, but I won't read them because that spoils the live tweeting.

Will someone get swallowed whole and cut their way out...with a LIGHTSABER?!? Help us Sharknado, you're our only hope.

Can you help us out?
