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 6 Results

I know you've been wondering who would win between thirteenth seed, 30 Rock Season Five, Episode Nine, "Chain Reaction of Mental Anguish," which aired December 2, 2010, and twentieth seed, Community Season Two, Episode Nine, "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design." Well, the results are in:

While 30 Rock delivered possibly the most consistently funny season of all of our competitors, this particular episode of Community just brought it a little bit more. It was not uncommon in the second season of Community to see a high-concept episode pop up, and it was also not uncommon to see one of those episodes fall flat on its face. Let's face it: when Community wasn't fantastic, it really wasn't doing much. But this particular episode engaged us in a complex conspiracy, much like every film in the late '90s tried to do. With the help of fantastic actor Kevin Corrigan, who must have been on a hiatus from Fringe, this episode was just plain good.

Our next match puts these titans of comedy at odds once again. This time we will be seeing a competition between twelfth seed, 30 Rock Season Five, Episode Five, "Reaganing," which aired October 21, 2010, and twenty-first seed, Community Season Two, Episode Fourteen, "Advanced Dungeons and Dragons," which aired February 3, 2011. Don't forget to let your voice be heard as to which episode you'd like to win!
