Who will triumph in this Mogadorian Fighter Challenge quarterfinal match: Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K in MEN IN BLACK, or Tom Baker as the Doctor? Dan and Robison Wells have the answer…
Dan: Oh man. My two Grandpas.
Rob: I believe that Tom Baker wins this one hands down.
Dan: You think it’s hands down?
Rob: Pretty much.
Dan: But we already described Tommy Lee Jones as the guy who can do anything, and has seen it all, and always wins. Except when he quits, which Tom Baker doesn’t, so I guess there’s that. On the other hand we have to say that the Doctor has died before, and Tommy Lee Jones hasn’t. At some point in the past Tom Baker has failed, and Tommy Lee Jones has yet to do so.
Rob: Except that this is actually a point in Tom Baker’s favor, because he can die and regenerate, whereas Tommy Lee Jones in MEN IN BLACK is getting old and he’s retiring. He can’t keep up the fight.
Dan: Has Tom Baker ever been eaten by a giant cockroach? And come out of it?
Rob: Probably. Even if it wasn’t in an episode.
Dan: We’ll see that at some point. Time travel makes anything possible. So okay, I’ll give this to Tom Baker.
WINNER: Tom Baker
