    Ben Stein!

    By thefanof, Dec 17, 2009

    "Hey, how you doing?"

    Milos was such a great guest character on this show and kind of wish there was some way that he could have become a recurring character on the show. He brought such an interesting dynamic, a European foreigner that Jerry struggled with as opposed to an Asian. And of course Ben Stein was absolutely hilarious with his ability to make you laugh just by hearing his dry, uncharismatic, monotone voice. Why more shows have not brought him in and why he is not in more comedy films is mind-boggling as he is guaranteed to make you laugh?

    George hating writing in large groups was a nice shot at departed head writer Larry David, but the Jerk Store storyline was kind of weird, even for later season George Costanza.

    Funny ep, not a classic though.moreless

    A good season eight episode.

    The Comeback is a good episode of a season which many, including myself, believe to have 'jumped the shark.' The plot for the comeback is a return to the style of earlier series, with the plot being driven more by the minutiae of everyday life than unrealistic plot devices.

    The conclusion to the Elaine/ Kramer plot thread doesn't make much sense, but I'm not sure if I was watching a syndicated version of the show or not.

    While still not up to the standards of classic Seinfeld such as The Contest and the whole of Series 6, The Comeback is memorable mostly for being a 'comeback' of good writing to post-LarryDavid Seinfeld.moreless
