Definitely Star Wars. While the first Terminator movies are great (compared to the rest), Star Wars is just so vast in its lore that it has so much more to offer and we've gotten some great adaptations, spin offs, etc.

I'm on the Star Wars side, but in fairness I did only watch the first Terminator, so...I'm lacking there.

Neither. That genre does not interest me at all.

Not going to lie. George Lucas was inspired by Terminator 2: Judgment Day from it's beginning scene of the future war and incorporated that into Episodes 1 and 2 and later found it's way into The Mandalorian, which has many plot points heavily referencing to The Terminator and Terminator 2 Judgment Day.



Not to mention the biggest easter egg being Michael Biehn (Kyle Reese) from the first Terminator film.

I do love Linda Hamilton though.

Lena Headey was pretty darn good in the short-lived Terminator spinoff series The Sarah Connor Chronicles, a show that is one of the poster children for being "Screwed by the Network"....
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles opened with strong numbers, only to be interrupted by the '08 writers' strike, which sidelined its planned lead-in to 24. Instead of trying to gain viewers in Season 2, Fox shoehorned it into a lead-in spot for Prison Break (which had seen a dramatic crash in viewership and popularity). The show was then put on a three-month hiatus and upon its return, rather than being scheduled as the lead-in to the returning 24, Fox moved it to the Friday Night Death Slot and needless to say it was over from there.

I liked the show quite a bit even though it was another alternate time line. It borrowed a lot of ideas from the works of S.M. Stirling's T-2 novel trilogy. There were a lot of references to "Rising Storm".

I don't think much of Lena as an actress.

I have never seen the Star Wars movies. Sorry. Saw the first one years ago but didn't really spark my interest. I was much more of a Star Trek fan. And Capt Kirk was a hottie.

Shatner definitely is an amazing actor. I love Boston Legal.

What did Obi-Wan tell Luke when his young apprentice was having a difficult time using chopsticks at the Chinese restaurant?
“Use the forks, Luke.”

Luke: What’s for dinner tonight, Dad?
Anakin: Wookiee steak.
Luke: Is it any good?
Anakin: It’s a little chewy.
