The Great Debate Exclusive Clip: SYFY Wire Takes Us Behind the Scenes

There can be only one. One Nerd will reign supreme in SYFY's newest, half-hour, late-night series SYFY WIRE's The Great Debate. Tune in each week as, a rotating panel of your favorite celebrities experts and creators dispute fandom's most burning dilemmas like Who would be a worse boss, Darth Vader or the Joker? (I'm leaning Joker). What's a more monstrous monster, Zombies or Vampires? I mean, who hasn't had that discussion around the watercooler? The conversations you have with your friends and family, that don't involve politics.
