The Star Wars/Trek Debate Overtakes a New Generation

Specifically, the Next Generation, represented by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, and the Star Wars prequel generation, represented by Qui-Gon Jinn. Sir Patrick Stewart and Liam Neeson were on the Graham Norton Show together, when Norton decided to settle the eternal debate of which franchise is better by comparing the two actors' toys. This video is awesome for two reasons: 1) I had forgotten how ridiculous those old Episode 1 banks looked when they weren't all paired together. Qui-Gon was supposed to be placed next to an Obi-Wan and a Darth Maul bank, so they could "fight." Without his partners, Qui-Gon looks like he's having an episode of the DTs. 2) Stewart actually facepalms. Hell, he headpalms. It's divine. (Via The Mary Sue)

FYI, the only DVD of note coming out today is Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1, which I only mention for Rifftrax purposes. Hopefully DVD Day will be back next week, assuming next week doesn't also suck ass.
