Episode 18: The One with the Great Debate – Star Wars Vs. Star Trek

As the two Presidential Candidates duke it out for the White House, Rita and JC decide to take a geek’s look at debating. The first great debate of 2012 is the ultimate debate in Geekdom – Star Wars vs. Star Trek!

Han Solo or Commander Riker? Darth Vader or the Borg? The Millennium Falcon or the Enterprise? You decide who wins.

Also on this week’s show, we talk Doctor Who. What was behind the Doctor’s Door in the God Complex? What does Matt Smith think of his new companion, we review Doctor Who P.S. and why was John Barrowman hired for Arrow? We also talk The Walking Dead season three premiere (no spoilers), we give you the scoop on SyFy’s new show Defiance and tell you about a new J.R.R. Tolkien book written before Lord of the Rings that will be published for the first time.
