  1. You bastard. You sick bastard.

    But seriously, there are many things to consider with a poll like this. Are we talking Joel Era or Mike Era? KTMA, Comedy Central, or Scifi Channel? Are you looking for riff- per- minute, or overall quality riff?

    Having said that, I’d go with Tom.

  2. Suppose I should clairify, you’re a sick bastard because you’re making me choose between the ‘Bots.

  3. I love all the ‘bots, and Tom consistently cracked me up, but Crow always seemed to have more of my sense of humor, he spoke to me, so I identify with him more…

  4. Kevin Murphy’s Tom Servo was such a rich character not even =two= different Cro-o-o-o-w!s could keep up. (Weinstein’s, though, not so much. Much like his other “contributions” to the show.)

  5. I got into MST3K in the past year or so, have seen plenty of episodes. Love it, but this is hard.

    I have to go w/ Tom just because, while I like both of Crow’s interpretations on various levels, Kevin having a full decade to the character was something I liked.

  6. This is the hardest poll ever. Why isn’t there a “both are awesome” option? But at the end of the day, I just think Tom (because of performer consistency) was the more solid character-wise. He also had my favorite freak-out at the end of “The Wild Wild World of Batwoman”.
