    To start, I think that Seinfeld was and is the best show on Television. But there's good and bad in everything, and even the best isn't perfect. So it should be interesting to see what people think are the episodes that just didn't quite hit as strong as others. I have to go with 'The Dinner Party' simply because I never thought it was all that funny, yet it's the one of the most repeated episodes in syndication. Episodes like 'The Betrayal', 'The Puerto Rican Day', 'The Calzone', and others are played far less frequently but are, in my opinion, much funnier. What's yours?

    Here's my list:

    The Bubble Boy: Is it me or is the bubble boy really an a$$h*le?

    The Bris: Is it me or is the mohel really an a$$h*le?

    The Kiss Hello: Only a few funny parts, but I didn't find this episode that funny.

    The Understudy: same excuse as The Kiss Hello.

    The Cartoon: same as the two above.

    The Maid: It's stupid.

    The Finale: Very overrated plus it's an awful finale.

    Wow! Only 6 out of what like 180 episodes. That's good.

    Definitely "The Old Man" and "The Dog" weren't very funny at all.

    Come on people, The Deal. It is the worst episode very unfunny and they spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME explaining "the rules".

    it's not really a matter of not liking them, its more a matter of which episodes) you didn't think were quite as good as the others

    No way man...that is such a great episode. I would say my least favorite is The Dog. It has a boring storyline and not many funny parts at all. How do you peopole not like The Deal, The Bubble Boy, and The Dinner Party? Crazy...

    Agree with:
    1.) The Dog
    2.) The Deal
    3.) The Bris
    4.) The Old Man

    Don't agree with
    1.) The Cartoon- thats one of the funniest ones...George dating a female Jerry and Kramer stopping talking. I'll admit Sally Weaver was pretty annoying but other than that it was hilarious.

    I also dont like:
    1.) The Stranded
    2.) The BusBoy

    oh and I forgot about the "Dinner Party"..I dont agree with that either, That episode was really good, especially when Jerry is telling his "hair" story.

    The Sally Weaver part was the only reason I dislike the episode but yes, the George part was the only funny part. Kramer was okay.

    Are you talking about "The Pilot Part 1 and 2" episode or "Good News, Bad News" (the very first episode)?

    I think he's talking about 'Good News, Bad News', which I personally think wasn't that bad even if it wasn't one of the better Seinfeld episodes.
    If you're talking about the Season 3 finale, then I have to disagree. To my mind, that was one of the most ironic (and hence, excellent) episodes.

    Well either way...the pilot was kind of slow (as most sitcoms, pilots start off somewhere) and it was very unique to see Jerry's apartment look different than the rest of the episodes. And the season 4 finale was kind of crazy. I'm not saying they're bad episodes, just not something I would watch over and over again and laugh.

    The Blood is the worst episode of the entire series, it just seemed so out of place and wacky in the Seinfeld universe and the end with Jerry and Newman screaming - what the hell was that?

    The Muffin Tops is also an episode that I don't really like.
