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 7 Results

You've had some time to figure out who wins in our last match-up 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. Well, the waiting is over:

30 Rock delivered its classic barrage of clever comedy moment after moment, with some really hilarious riffs. But Community had the upper hand, both in that this high concept episode was incredibly funny, making me laugh out loud several times (which is one of the most important criteria for a win), and in the fact that "Advanced Dungeons and Dragons" advances the season-long story-arc of the study group versus Pierce in a very interesting way. With both story and humor, Community has put another W in their column.

This next match is the half-way point for the first round. We will see a battle between fifth seed, Big Bang Theory Season Four, Episode Twenty, "The Herb Garden Germination," which aired April 7, 2011, and twenty-eighth seed, Community Season Two, Episode Twenty-One, "Paradigms of Human Memory," which aired April 21, 2011. Vote for the episode you want to win, and vote often.
