    The Susie

    By thefanof, Jul 29, 2010

    Having an Elaine-centric episode is never a good idea and you saw that tonight as this was not exactly one of Seinfeld's best episodes of all time. That being said, my score of eight out of ten is still very fair for this program as you did laugh in the beginning, during the middle and at the end. The bit with Kramer hating Daylight Savings Time was great as was Jerry's cynical, yet true response of people just knowing because they tell you the night before.

    If you're on the fence about watching this, watch it, but there are definitely better episodes out there.moreless

    While this episode is hilarious on its own merits, one really needs to see the bloopers form the DVD.

    About of the quarter of the bloopers from season 8 are from this episode, and it's a scream. Peterman speaks from the podium about the sweet smell of the liquid paper leading to a sexual encounter with "Susie." Julia Louis-Dreyfus can barely keep a straight face. There must have been at least 10 re-shoots to get this episode together. If you do not have the DVDs for the series, the blooper reels are available on various torrent sites. Enjoy. Now I have to keep writing about nothing to get to 100 words, and I'm getting very very very very close.moreless

    You knoiw susie like I know susie!

    By GeorgeJobson, Feb 27, 2007

    Elaine got into trouble with her fellow employee so she made up a person of susie and the office brough it. The look at susie as a person, made up by elaine. when susie got on her nerves she made another lie saying that susie has die. the office believe her lie and had a funeral and foundation named after her. It was a coun terpoint to a "Fat Albert" epiosde about lying. If you lie the lie will grow. Meanwhile, a $100 bet involved Jerry's friend Mike as lead to an accident involving broken thumbs. for some reason that has a Susie connection.moreless

    Has its moments.

    By Tristram_ZX81, Oct 26, 2005

    As is typical of post Series 8 Seinfeld this isn't up there with the best of 1990s comedy but there is still plenty of fun to be had.

    Jerry's emotional detachment at the memorial is very funny, even if (SPOILER-) the number of people who attend is very unrealistic for a fictionalised woman. (SPOILER ENDS)

    George's comical answer machine message is the kind of humour more typical of Friends than Seinfeld, but it's a breath of fresh air into an eight year old show and it did make me titter.

    This episode, which hangs leather clad and airborne above a shark below, is a good example of a fantastic cast making the most of sub par material. The bizarre post-relationship interaction between George and Kramer doesn't seem typical of their past bond but is made hilarious by the acute observation and delivery of both Michael Kramer and Jason Alexander.moreless
