Thursday night’s comedy lineup was full of good laughs and honest emotion. I’m picking the single best moment from four of these shows. Tell me if you agree with my choices.
• Community: Abed’s description of being an extra on Cougar Town. Wonderful — truly: skilled and subtle acting from Danny Pudi delivering a long, nuanced monologue.
• The Office: How about that proposal? The candles! Michael and Holly walking past the procession of office workers! Their reaction when Michael told them of his future!
• Parks and Recreation: I’m tempted just to hand it to the “German muffin,” but Tom’s kickin’-it camping tent/entertainment center wins.
• 30 Rock: The walk-‘n’-talk scene between Liz Lemon and Aaron Sorkin–brilliant.
(Oh, and P.S.: NBC is managing to make me hate The Voice even before it begins by running those horrible, taking-up-the-lower-quarter-of-the-screen ads with the likes of Christina Aguilera.)
