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!).
MEDUSA vs FIREWALKER
Tony: “MEDUSA – neither will probably get out of round two, but I’ll plumb for this, though it could go either way.”
Carl: “I don’t think there’ll be much enthusiasm for either of these. I think FIREWALKER will take the win, in all likelihood.”
Sarah: “FIREWALKER because of Josh–I mean, um… Bradley Whitford.”
Andrew: “I actually really like MEDUSA. The monster-of-the-week angle is pretty weak, but seeing Scully pitted against that angry subway CEO is entertaining. In my opinion, very much underrated. Firewalker is just Ice redone in a hot climate.”
SPACE vs DIE HAND DIE VERLETZT
Tony: “DIE HAND DIE VERLETZT – come on, you’d have to be a right plonker to vote for Space!”
Carl: “Space is good for a few unintentional laughs, but that won’t do it much good here. DIE HAND DIE VERLETZT.”
Sarah: “DIE HAND DIE VERLETZT is going to take this one. That snake still gives me nightmares.”
