Space Janitors

Yes, it's Wednesday and this isn't a "Star Wars Wednesday" post. 
But it is Star Wars adjacent!

Space Janitors is a comedy/science fiction web series created by Davin Lengyel and Geoff Lapaire. It chronicles the lives of two janitors, Mike and Darby, who serve aboard an evil iconic space station. After all, someone has to buff out the blaster burn marks from the halls and mop up the hero guts from the not-so-bottomless shaft, right?
In a distant corner of the universe, a galaxy is at war. Rebels battle for freedom; villains fight for control. But the true heroes are the ones cleaning up the mess…

While they do draw a lot of inspiration from Star Wars, sharp eyed fans can spot other blatant and sometimes subtle franchise references including Tron, Halo and even Reboot.

The series is distributed by Geek and Sundry on YouTube. They're almost done with season 2 and have started an IndieGoGo campaign for season 3. And I have to say I'm a little sad that they're only a third of the way to their goal with 11 days to go. Seriously, these guys should be doing a Spaceballs sequel!

I think even if you're not a huge sci-fi nerd, it's still pretty funny, but you may miss some of the more specific jokes. Either way, I can't recommend this enough. It's one of the few web shows I get truly excited about when I see a new episode has been posted.
Go watch it!
