Great Debate Comic-Con 2019

There are a lot of panels at San Diego Comic-Con. Hundreds, I’d wager. And while Hall H gets a lot of attention for the mega-IPs that make their home there, there’s a strong case – hear me out – for SYFY’s The Great Debate being one of the best panels at Comic-Con. 

True, you’re not going to see top secret footage from the next Marvel movie or get a glimpse of an uber-celebrity there. But what you will get, however, is a fun, relatively unscripted time where there are no PR people coaching actors on what they should and should not say. 

This year’s panel, held Thursday afternoon in Ballroom 20, brought together a group of funny people who did not disappoint. Aisha Tyler returned for the fourth time to moderate the motley crew of Felicia Day (The Magicians, Supernatural), Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City), Dani Fernandez (Ralph Breaks the Internet), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911, The Odd Couple), and Travis McElroy (My Brother, My Brother and Me, The Adventure Zone). The panelists debated a variety of topics while managing to fit in references you’ll not likely to see at other Comic-Con events (Day, for example, got in the tidbits that lizards have two-pronged penises, and that Smurfs are three apples tall).

Here’s a rundown of their takes on some of the most pressing genre subjects of our time. Agree with their taken-out-of-context quotes below? Disagree? Great! That’s how this panel works. Read More »
