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!).
ASCENSION vs WITHOUT
Tony: “ASCENSION – by virtue of it being a legendary episode, though I don’t think it’ll completely trounce Without.”
Carl: “Yes, it’s hard to see ASCENSION not winning. Like you say, Without will get some support, though ultimately not enough.”
Sarah: “ASCENSION is classic. It’s memorable for many reasons. I think it’ll trounce WITHOUT.”
Baz: “I agree about ASCENSION; it’s the episode where everything changed as Scully was abducted, Krycek’s villainy was revealed and we had that thrilling cable car pursuit as Mulder races to save Scully and fails. WITHOUT is a good episode, progression the mythology post-Mulder and has a great body-snatchers vibe but it can’t hope to beat ASCENSION.”
PROVIDENCE vs LITTLE GREEN MEN
Tony: “LITTLE GREEN MEN – absolute rout, let’s not even discuss it.”
Carl: “LITTLE GREEN MEN.”
Sarah: “LITTLE GREEN MEN.”
Baz: “As for PROVIDENCE, it’s a dull and frustrating season nine mythology episode while LITTLE GREEN MEN kicks off season two in style. No contest, LITTLE GREEN MEN will win.”
Andrew: “LITTLE GREEN MEN”
