As I’m sure you’ve heard, there was a new Hobbit trailer yesterday. Actually, there were five new Hobbit trailers, because now trailers with alternate endings are a thing. I hope they stay a one-off thing, but I suspect they will not. I also suspect that we haven’t seen the end of Hobbit trailers. And I’m not alone. As my pal Scott Renshaw, entertainment editor of Salt Lake City Weekly, tweeted yesterday:
BREAKING: First of approximately 8,000 HOBBIT trailers over next three years debuts.

I love Peter Jackson, I’m excited for The Hobbit, but this is getting ridiculous.
What geek thing are you totally fed up with? Are you sick of zombies? Do you feel like punching the next person who says “timey-whimey”? What geek trope is driving you crazy?
