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!).
AGUA MALA vs SMALL POTATOES
Tony: “SMALL POTATOES – by a country mile.”
Carl: “Yeah, don’t think there’s much else to add. SMALL POTATOES is heading to round 2 (and beyond)…”
Sarah: “SMALL POTATOES is gonna coldcock every competitor for sure.”
Paige: “Small Potatoes doesn’t need the force to pull out a victory on this one.”
Baz: “SMALL POTATOES is the comedy masterpiece of season four, AGUA MALA is okay, but one of the weaker episodes of the very strong season six. It might get a few votes but not many.”
MY STRUGGLE II vs IRRESISTIBLE
Tony: “IRRESISTIBLE – no one forgets Donnie Pfaster but a lot of people are keen to forget the S10 finale!”
Sarah: “Donnie Pfaster traumatized me for life. I can’t buy shampoo or clean out my hair brush without thinking of him. IRRESISTIBLE is truly frightening. It’s going far in this tournament.”
Carl: “IRRESISTIBLE will win, for sure. Like you say – once seen, never forgotten.”
Baz: “Donnie Pfaster will always be one of The X Files’s most memorable non-monster human serial killers. MY STRUGGLE II is a struggle for many reasons (pun intended :slightly_smiling_face: ) A great story rushed at a thousand miles per hour and a frustrating cliff-hanger, I can’t see it getting many votes. IRRESISTIBLE for the win!”
Paige: “And Donnie Pfaster is an indelible X-File baddie. It’s too Irresistible not to vote for that ep. We’ll see just how strong our revival contingent is on this vote, but I firmly believe Irresistible will prevail.”
