Going Anakin

I'd like to introduce an new phrase into the American lexicon:

Going Anakin

When a show with a beloved and well-respected mythologies over-explains it in a cute, and unnecessarily detailed way (Like when a powerful and mystical force becomes simply the actions of midichlorians, and the darkest villainof all time(s) becomes pie-faced kid with a whiny voice).

Example: "Last weeks episode of LOST totally went Anakin with the light cave."


The last episode of Battlestar Galactica was awesome until it went Anakin in the last fifteen minutes.

Sometimes the mystery box needs to stay a mystery.

    I didn't mind the cave of light (heck the show has immortals, smoke monsters, time travel, ghosts, a seemingly sentient island, a cave of light representing it's soul really isn't anything), but a bad guy who isn't really bad and is really whiny. Yeah, Going Anakin.
