TOURNAMENT PREDICTIONS: Dreamland vs D.P.O / Excelsis Dei vs Three Words

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!).

January 18th/19th



Tony: “DREAMLAND – can’t see this not winning, especially given part 2 is gone. Part 1 is the stronger episode of the two as well.”

Carl: “Agree, win for DREAMLAND in prospect. Side note: I prefer Dreamland II because it doesn’t rely on Scully being slow on the uptake.”

Sarah: “Both of these episodes have extremely strong guest stars. As much as I’m a fan of Giovanni Ribisi and Jack Black, I feel like DREAMLAND has the stronger writing and more compelling story, and Michael McKean will take home the win.”

Paige: “Dreamland 1 is far superior to the second part, D.P.O. will get struck down.”

Baz: “As for DPO and DREAMLAND, I absolutely love the latter, if nothing more than seeing Mulder dancing in the reflection of the wardrobe mirror as Morris Fletcher. DPO is a good episode, but DREAMLAND is a comedy classic and it will absolutely win.”

Andrew: “I think the fact it’s got Michael McKean and it’s a shippy, comedic episode will get DREAMLAND the win.”


Tony: “THREE WORDS – I’ll give you three words: fuck Excelsis Dei.”

Carl: “Ha! Let’s do three-word responses. Mythology episode victory.”

Sarah: “Alien colonization wins.”

Paige: “There’s no way Three Words doesn’t win. Excelsis Dei is a solid episode that fits right into the early X-Files wheelhouse.”
