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 8 Results

As promised, today we shall find out who the victor is in the match-up of 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. And find out we shall!

While "The Herb Garden Germination" was easily one of the best episodes this season for Big Bang Theory, "Paradigms of Human Memory" was one of the best episodes of Community ever. Maybe that's not a strong enough statement, considering Community has only been on for two full seasons. I would say this episode is probably one of the top ten funniest half-hours of comedy programming in the last five years. That's how strong it was. It left people begging to see the episodes that are flashed back to, episodes that have never aired, and it left me wondering why they didn't air those episodes instead of some of the more abysmal episodes of the first half of the season.

And now we are left wondering who will win between second seed, Big Bang Theory Season Four, Episode Twenty, "The Justice League Recombination," which aired December 16, 2010, and thirty-first seed, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season Six, Episode Nine, "Dee Reynolds: Shaping America's Youth," which aired November 11, 2010.
