I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Thursday TV Tournament: Match-up 4 Results

Unlike our last match-up between Community and The Office, which pitted a couple of the best episodes of the previous season, the episodes doing battle today were by far not the best. They were only better than everything else going on that particular week.

Of the two episodes at hand - The Office Season Seven, Episode Twenty-Six: "Search Committee," which aired May 19, 2011, and twenty-fifth seed, Community Season Two, Episode Seventeen: "Intro to Political Science," which aired February 24, 2011 - the clear winner is:

I re-watched the entire two-part season finale of The Office and there were a couple of really good moments, but certainly not enough for forty minutes of TV. Then I watched the Community episode in question and laughed harder during the opening scene than I did during two episodes of The Office. Notches...

The next match-up is between fourth seed Big Bang Theory Season Four, Episode Nineteen: "The Zarnecki Incursion," which aired March 31, 2011, and twenty-ninth seed Community Season Two, Episode Twenty-Four: "For a Few Paintballs More," which aired May 12, 2011. As Arnold Schwarzenegger would say, "Stick around." As I would say, "Comment so I can know which episode you think should win."
