TOURNAMENT PREDICTIONS: Fight the Future vs The Red and the Black / My Struggle vs Millennium

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!).

December 16th/18th




Tony: “FIGHT THE FUTURE – lot of love out there for the movie & TRATB doesn’t have a massive amount that’s memorable about it really.”

Carl: “I think FIGHT THE FUTURE will win the vote too, possibly quite comfortably. Not sure I agree about TRATB though – Scully’s ‘orgasm hypnosis’ scene was pretty memorable, to name just one thing!”

Andrew: “FIGHT THE FUTURE should, and will, win. TRATB is a quality episode, better than Patient X, but it doesn’t touch the scope and quality of FTF.”

Sam: “Don’t think I can call this one…”

Sarah: “My money’s on FTF over TRATB since the film is iconic enough that possibly even non-XPhiles might know it.”

Baz: “I think FIGHT THE FUTURE will nab it because it is the movie and has some very memorable moments. I’m a big fan of THE RED AND THE BLACK as it starts to accelerate the mythology’s end game but I don’t think it will be as memorable as the movie. Plus the movie is better overall, telling a full story (of sorts). It deserves and will likely win.”




Tony: “MILLENNIUM – by virtue of Frank Black popping up & the mixed feelings on the S10 mythology eps. It also deserves a good run.”

Sam: “MILLENNIUM for sure!”

Baz: “I agree about MILLENNIUM, if nothing else because it brings back Frank Black to tie that series up. But there seems to be a lot of love for the new episodes so MY STRUGGLE might win by virtue of bringing the show back. Both have good moments and their flaws though, so I don’t think it will be a clear win for either.”

Carl: “MILLENNIUM will win. No way is an episode with a Mulder/Scully kiss being voted out at this stage.”

Baz: “Surprised I forgot that. Yeah, that will certainly give MILLENNIUM the lead.”

Andrew: “MILLENNIUM. Doesn’t take much to beat MY STRUGGLE.”

Sarah: “I can’t say it any better than Carl. MILLENNIUM for sure.”
