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!).
NOTHING IMPORTANT HAPPENED TODAY I vs ALONE
Tony: “ALONE – purely for the snowplough conversation, and NIHT being dull as shit.”
Carl: “Yes. ALONE – for the in-jokes, and for not being NIHT.”
Baz: “ALONE will win because it’s funny, self referential and feels like a lovely send off for Mulder, Scully and Doggett. NOTHING IMPORTANT HAPPENED TODAY’s sole purpose is to destroy all the good will of season eight and as Tony mentioned, it is dull as shit. Possibly a contender for worst mythology episode ever. Sorry, did I mention ALONE will win?”
Paige: “Hoping ALONE gets some company from the fans!”
BORN AGAIN vs MIRACLE MAN
Tony: “BORN AGAIN – literally could go either way, I just said that because it’s the first one. Either will be steamrollered eventually.”
Baz: “Urgh…okay. Neither are great season one episodes. I think BORN AGAIN is slightly more interesting and perhaps a little creepier. It might win over MIRACLE MAN but it’s not exactly a battle of the classics.”
Carl: “I care not a jot about both of these, I’m afraid. No idea which one will get the most votes. BORN AGAIN – because Janice from Friends is in it.”
Paige: “I like BORN AGAIN more than Miracle Man, I’m counting on the voters agreeing with me. This could be a close one.
Sarah: “I’m going to go with MIRACLE MAN. While it’s not an outstanding or memorable episode, it does have some strong lines.”
