The X-Cast blog team are going to share their daily predictions about the Episode Tournament fixtures coming up, talking about who they think will win (not crucially who *should* win – that’s up to you!).
F. EMASCULATA vs ROLAND
Tony: “F. EMASCULATA – not by a margin but this excellent virus story should win the day.”
Paige: “Kinda hoping ROLAND pulls it out here, great guest starring performance by Zeljko Ivanek. But expecting F to triumph.”
Carl: “Could be a close one. F. EMASCULATA is the better episode, but it’s also truly disgusting, so it may not appeal to all sensibilities. I still think it’ll win though.”
Baz: “F EMASCULATA is a great virus episode, tense, disgusting and a brilliant Scully vs the military storyline. ROLAND is just good. F EMASCULATA for the win on this one.”
SANGUINARIUM vs HELLBOUND
Tony: “SANGUINARIUM – could go either way.”
Carl: “HELLBOUND is the finer episode, but will enough people remember it? I’m dubious, but that’s what I’ll go for.”
Baz: “HELLBOUND is in my top three season nine episodes, a dark and grizzly affair that captures the feel of early The X-Files. SANGUINARIUM is another nasty but good episode but the story is not as thrilling. That being said, I can’t call it. How many people will remember HELLBOUND? I want it to win but I agree that it could go either way.”
