Tonight, Ms Knope goes head-to-head with an ‘Old Boys Club’, there’s an interesting casual friday at the Office, Tracy Jordan tries to become more mature (see above), and the LA po-po try and track down the identity of a body that the crips and/or bloods used for target practice. Check out a full preview after the break (now with extra Creed Bratton!)
