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!).
END GAME vs FOUNDERS MUTATION
Tony: “FOUNDERS MUTATION – by virtue mostly of being new & one of the better S10 episodes, but End Game deserves the nod more.”
Carl: “I’m conflicted actually as to what deserves the nod. I agree with your reasoning though: FOUNDER’S MUTATION to win.”
Baz: “FOUNDERS MUTATION might win by virtue of being one the better episodes of the recent revival. END GAME is better; it’s the culmination of the first colonization story in the show with Samantha revealed as a clone and of course the shapeshifting bounty hunter. It will have a lot of fans – me included. However, I agree with most that FOUNDERS MUTATION will likely win due to being good and recent.”
Sarah: “Agreed, both strong episodes but in different ways. I think FOUNDER’S MUTATION will win, because it’s fresher in everyone’s mind.”
Michael: “END GAME, come on.”
UNREQUITED vs TREVOR
Tony: “UNREQUITED – probably the more memorable of the two, but they’re both ropey. Neither will survive round two unless they’re lucky.”
Carl: “Not sure either episode has many fans. UNREQUITED has Skinner and Marita, so let’s say that.”
Baz: “As for UNREQUITED and TREVOR? Neither are that remarkable. Maybe UNREQUITED for being slightly more memorable as Tony mentioned and also because it sits in a stronger season (four rather than one). Really couldn’t call this one though…”
Sarah: “UNREQUITED because Skinner.”
Charnette: “I like UNREQUITED. That one never gets love.”
