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 12 Results

Today's match-up is between seventh seed, The Office Season Seven, Episode Nineteen, "Garage Sale," which aired March 24, 2011, and twenty-sixth seed, Community Season Two, Episode Twenty, "Competitive Wine Tasting," which aired April 14, 2011. I know you've been holding your breath, so here are the results, my blue-faced friends:

While "Competitive Wine Tasting" has its strengths, "Garage Sale" was one of the best episodes of The Office in years, and that is saying something. This one had some of the shine of earlier seasons, when Jim and Pam were wondering whether or not one would return the other's affections and what have you. And arguably the strongest scene we've ever seen on The Office is the scene where Michael proposes to Holly. This is perhaps the only episode this entire season of Thursday night episodes that brought a tear to my eye. (Maybe Michael's final episode - I don't know...) It will take a fantastic episode to knock it out of the running.

Tune in next time for third seed, Big Bang Theory Season Four, Episode Eighteen, "The Prestidigitation Approximation," which aired March 10, 2011, and thirtieth seed, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season Six, Episode One, "Mac Fights Gay Marriage," which aired September 16, 2010. I'll be there...
