Seinfeld, in my opion is one one the funniest comedies in the 90's, if not the best. So many memorable characters that would have you coming back for more and more every week. Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer made every seen enjoyable even when not together. A show about nothing, this was, and still is, one of the most off the wall shows that ever graced our television. All the slang, quotes, and zany characters are still remembered today. One of the fewest comedies to remain consistent after being on season after season. If you ever wanted to see a show that has a character called 'Soup Nazi', then this is the show for you.
Even tough this site says that the ratings of the series is full of sevens and sixes and sometimes worse, and with few but very few good ratings, I think that this series is the best! Its storylines are really good and somehow all what they do seems connected by some way and I think that every season this series get better and better, is to bad that it ended but still is really cool and you can always have it with you in order to enjoy it any time you like, any season you want because every season is really cool!
The show Seinfeld pretty much gets described in the episode where Jerry and George are making their own sitcom for NBC, which is...errr...seinfeld. "It's a show about nothing!" is what George stated to the NBC staff.
That's exactly where the brilliance of Seinfeld lies, the fact that it's about nothing, or simply about every day occurences which can happen to anyone. One episode takes place the entire time on the inside of a car, the other takes place in a mall etc.
The best aspect of Seinfeld is of course the character Kramer. He makes what the show is with his dialogue, his appearance, his mimics etc.
People tend to compare Seinfeld to Friends, but there is no way that Friends could touch the sheer brilliance of Seinfeld.
Jerry, Kramer, Geroge and Eliane were perfect for this show. For nothing about something came out to be a big thing. Including Newman he always laugh when Jerry is in trouble. I like Kramer the best because he is the one make people as well as Jerry does. My favorite part when Kramer got hit by a foul ball that he was trying to get George hat from the yankee game. LOL! They should continue the show but it ended with court room decision and i think it was for the best.
I Loved the show but was just hopping the actors would mature with every season (which did not happen). Julia Louis-Dreyfus\' potrayal of Elane could not be more worse (must say abysmal).
Michael Richards was excellant as Kramer and Seinfeld does a good job though he is not a good actor. No one could have played George Costanza better than Jason Alexander. But Julia Louis-Dreyfos was a big let down. When ever I see seinfeld (I have DVD of most of the seasons), I just wish Julia Louis-Dreyfos was not there.
But honestly it is worth watching once. Guaranteed to make you laugh
All of the seasons are fun to watch. The way the characters interact with each other is what makes it brilliant. You've got Jerry Seinfeld who is the guy that, for the most part, has it all together. He is the most logical character who sort of bridges the gap with all the other characters. He is often the mentor to the group in an indirect kind of way. George is the idiot of the group that is usually getting into a mess which is fun to watch. Karamer is the eccentric character of the group. It is fun to watch him and see what his is up to next. He's always got something new going on in his world. Then you have the Elaine character that is pretty much best friends with Jerry. She's just your average chick with an attitude. So its fun to watch her as she often has the "role your eyes type of attitude" at various things George, Jerry, and Kramer do. But basically, Without Jerry, the group could not exist together. Jerry is the nucleus that causes the whole group to function as a whole. Start at season 1 and watch till the end. Enjoy the series as it progresses. There are so many memorable episodes it would be pointless to review them all. You just need to watch it all and you'll never regret your decision.
This show sholdn't be named Seinfeld, it should be named Stupid, because I can never understand this show, it absolutely makes no sense at all, and the audience watching the show laughs at every single thing on this show, I can't watch one minute of this so called sitcom without hearing the audience laughing, but in my opinion, its not funny at all. I don't like this show one bit and if this were the last show on this planet to watch, I won't even bother with TV anymore until all the other shows return. If you like this show then good for you, if you haven't heard of it yet, don't even think of bothering to watch this insipid nonsense.
No other sitcom in television history has made such inventive, idiosyncratic use of words, labels, brand names, and pop-culture references. No other TV comedy has experimented as daringly with the witty possibilities of language on a medium that traditionally relies heavily on physical action for easy laughs. On SEINFELD, open-ended conversation among characters who have nothing to gain in terms of plot development is its own reward. Talk is what binds Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer together.
All four friends are much happier once they are relieved of whatever situation they briefly find themselves in and can get back to the business of sitting around together, theoretically pursuing new situations. They have no children, they cook no meals, they belong to no bowling leagues, they own no amusingly run-down real estate, they don't care about interior decorating or home improvement.
So Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer have plenty of time to talk. Because talk is what gets them through life. It also makes SEINFELD the nimblest, most linguistically sophisticated comedy show. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
The show always start with Jerry being a stage comedian. Taking it out from his own personal joke book and display it to the world. A couple of shows must have parodies of Senfeld. The only one I know that has a parody is The Fairly OddParents. Sometimes we get jokes and sometimes we don\'t. I always think that Jerry is the sensible person in the show, Kramer, the weird looking friend and neighbor, George, the unsuccesful person and Elaine, the unlucky one.
All we know that\'s Jerry a funny person and likes to make jokes. That\'s all I have to say.
seinfeld is so far the best comedy sitcom to have aired on tv. it is really funny and truly it is about absolutely nothing. i loved all the characters on the show. elaine had a very weired dance and i liked it when she used to get angry and start yelling and pushing people. cosmo was an entirely different character he had his famous entry into jerrys apartment he used to slide in a cool way but this slowly dissappeared after the 7th season. george was reaaly crazy with all the problems he created and got stuck in.jerry was also good. i liked it when they got stuck in 1 problem or another and their freakouts.it will be the best show on television for ever.
This show is about the random events that happen to a group of 4 friends living in New York. The show is really funny, due to
clever writing, good acting, and stupid characters. It has affected today\'s pop culture tremendously, due to original characters and scenarios, such as the Soup Nazi. This show was very popular a decade ago, and to this day retains a loyal fan base. These fans have helped keep this show alive for all of this time, and it still airs every weeknight on TBS. Very funny indeed. A certain must-see for fans of comedy. Lol.
Seinfeld is the best comedy and best show in general i've encountered on TV. Larry david and company are geniuses, no one these days can write like them. Never have I seen such brilliant, smart, and witty comedy that continues to make you laugh episode after episode.
The comedy is based on obvservational humor, much like Jerry Seinfeld's own stand up routine. This is material that is as general as it gets, with almost everyone being able to relate. The show revolves around awkwardness in relationships and everyday circumstances.
Basically, if you're interested in shows on tv at all, you cannot miss this masterpiece.
I never got this show, I always thought Seinfield himself was funny as a standup comic but the show was so insipid I could never bring myself to sit through an entire episode.
Now that it's in reruns it's even worse, I find it like fingernails on a
Maybe Seinfield's a guy thing, my husband thinks it's great but for me a show that's basically about nothing just doesn't get it for me. Maybe if there had been a few more characters I could connect to, relate to I'd get it but how does one relate to these characters? maybe if Elaine's character had been, I don't know more sympathetic I could get it, but everytime I tuned in or have the misfortune of having to sit through an episode because my husband's watching the show is about some stupid bet or scheme and I rarely find the scenes or jokes funny, because it's all too obvious. I guess I need a more intellectually stimulating and unique show
I was never all that sad when the show first went off of the air. It would not be until a few years later that I would Begin to find myself buying the DVD sets and sometimes watching several episodes a day. I do not agree with the summary where it mentions "complex plots and sub-plots." I thought that this was a show about nothing. Yes, there are reoccurring themes and events from past episodes that are mentioned in episodes down the road, but as far as continuous plots....I do not think so. It is a show about a group of friends who are just living their lives. Of course they get into some wacky situations, but who of us has not had some wild things happen to them??? I am glad that the show is still on TV, even though it is re-runs. Great show and I hope that I can have every episode at some point down the line. This show will live on FOREVER!!!
Some classic episodes: The Package, The Frogger, and The Marine Biologist.
Seinfeld is a very orignal, kind of pointless show. It's pointlessness and subliminal and controversial characters are what make it such a pleasure to watch. It is more real life and shows the ruder, more realistic truth about living in New York. It's characters are hillarious and have unique qualities and awkward habits that make you confused and overwhelmed with humorous feelings at the same time. I think anyone who has a good sense of humor and can appreciate good comedy when they recognize it should watch this show, if they haven't already. All in all I give the show an "A".
In a show filled with running gags galore, it seems that you would need the dvd versions just to get all the jokes.
One of the best parts about seinfeld is Jerry\'s stan-up intros and outros. I believe that anyone would enjoy watching this show, whether it\'s the soup nazi\'s insanity, or kramer\'s crazy antics. Definately a main stay on the sitcom route til the very end. I kind of didn\'t enjoy the ending, but it was a fitting way to end the show. Seriously, people, go out and buy the seinfeld dvd\'s today or else you will miss out on one of the greatest shows ever!
I have sat on this for a while now, but I think it's time...
Seinfeld had a simple concept: It was a show about nothing. Of course, really, a show can not be about nothing since a show about nothing would not be a show. The "show about nothing" label is more a note to writers to never streamline stories.
But the fact is that label and aditude had effected most sit-coms for the following show. This gives Seinfeld an immortal statis in TV history.
The only problem with the whole show is the final episode. What became a "revisit" to past episode, turned into a complete reverse of the show's premise by linking episodes together, all be it loosely.
This was the show that was about "nothing" that always made you laugh. Whoever was in charge of casting should get extra royalties. And not just the main stars, the guest stars were almost as good. There were at least 2 member of Desperate Housewives that I can think of right off hand. Teri Hatcher was the girl who said "they're real, and they're magnificant". Marsha Cross was on as one of Jerry's much too beautiful girlfriends also. This show will last forever in re runs because it will hold up well to the test of time. I can look forward to watching it with my children, my grand children and my great grand children.
Seinfeld is called "The Show About Nothing"- because that's exactly what it is. Typical episodes generally starts with one or sometimes a few issues that certain characters have to deal with. Eventually each issue snowballs either into something else or t
This show is absolutely hilarious and I was heartbroken when it was cancelled. Everything that comes out of Jerry's mouth is funny, Elaine is sort of his sidekick, George gets the butt end of everything, and Kramer... well Kramer is just Kramer. Only this show could have an entire episode about a red dot on a kashmire sweater, or being lost in a parking garage actually funny. And what makes this show even greater is that everyonce in a while, when an episode isn't about something ridiculous, it's about an everyday person's struggles, allowing us to be able to relate.
There are many hilarious aspects of the show and although it started and finished poorly, Seinfeld will trly be remembered for the clasic installments of hilarity that can be found in well known episodes such as "The soup Nazi" and "The Junior Mint".
Kramer is by far my favourite character as the show can do anything with him as he is a very far out character with a hint of crazy.
One of the things I dislike about the show are the episodes based aroundf Jerry and George making their show "Jerry" which I thought was a lame idea as was George getting engaged.
However, those things aside, this show will be remembered throughout the ages for its memorable moments filled with humour.
Where you go Sienfeild? I miss you so. It been forever since that last epsiode when I was... how old was I? Was I five... uh... anyway. I love Seinfeild and every tuesday when I prepare to play idol... uh okay mimic it... with my puppets... what I'm 14! So I watch this show get many laughs and wonder... why is this show so funny when I learned the first time I watched it was about nothing. It took me a few epsiodes to get the plot. I first thought the show was about these people on a show about nothing. Then I slowly realized that that show was the show! Whoa! Anyway it also took me a few epsiodes to like it. First it kinda sucked. Then it was good. Then great. Then perfect. I knew it was over so it was a sadly a fact that I shall never see a season finale. So I watched everyday in hope to see the true last epsiode. Hopefully that day will come... I give this show a 10. Oh yeah... anyone who has info on the last show e-mail me.
The four main characters are: Jerry Seinfeld, Cosmo Kramer,Elanie Benes and George Costanza. Kramer is Jerry's neighbor. Elanie was Jerry's girlfriend, but now they are just friends, and George is Jerry's friend. Then there is Newman. He is a mailman and he and Jerry dont really like each other. George has problems with his mom and dad. His parents are always fighting. George also was also going to get married and then stuff happened (i dont know if i should give it away or not) and then they didn't. There are also many more characters. but its a pretty good show.
Wow, just looking at some of the other reviews really makes me wonder. Sombody thinks it was ahead of it's time but only gave it a 7 something. Wow, what a tough critic. This was a great show about "nothing" that always made you laugh. the casting was perfect. I can not believe the hugley successful guest stars that thet had. There were at least 2 member of desperate Housewives that I can think of right off hand. Teri hatcher was the girl who said "they're real and they're fantastic" or something like that. marsh Cross was on at least once too. that was one things that killed me though. i guess it's the same with a lot of comedies. The woemn are often times wayyyy too good looking for the guys.
IMO, Jerry was seemingly the straight man in the group
While Kramer was a pyscho who did what he pleased
As George was the lovable loser who couldn't get a job
And Elaine was like the lone eye-candy to complete the picture
None of them were related by family but friends you know
But again, it shows why the show can be a bit cruel but downright funny at times.
I can remember seeing my first episode (I think it was season 2, can't remember which one now though) and thinking, "I can't believe this is a show." I stopped watching for a year or two, and then I realized what all the fuss was about. The thing I love most about this show is that there was never a "serious" topic discussed, at least not in a serious way. It seems to me that too many sit com writers decide that there has to be a serious story once every 10 episodes or so, but Seinfeld never went that route. Throughout the entire run, it was truly a story about nothing, which is fine by me. As was the case with many people, each Friday everyone at work was quoting Seinfeld ("Hellllooooooo! La la la!" or "Shrinkage") and talking about last night's episode. I'm glad they decided to call it quits rather than re-hash old ideas or go the serious route. In any case, this one remains one of my all time favorites, highly recommended!
Wow, I absolutely cannot convey to you know much I adore this show! It's funny, original, and addictive, and the cast was amazing. The only sad thing is that it had to end, but I guess it was good that they cut it before the show began going downhill. Every episode was as great as the last; I personally cannot think of an eppie that didn't make me crack up at least 10 times. Seinfeld definitely set the bar for future comedies/sitcoms. My favorite thing by far was the cast because every actor had their own personal quirks that made them so darn funny and likeable! Kramer, Elaine, Jerry, GEORGE! Seinfeld is one of my all time faves.
I think Seinfeld is the best tv series of all the time.With its incredible and funny characters and unbelievingly intelligent plot(also don't forget "a show about nothing" concept) it became a real tv legend.I don't think that any series will be as good as Seinfeld ever.Although i watched all the episodes at least 3-4 times,i still enjoy watching them.
and i also have to mention about one more thing...people who don't understand and like seinfeld are the most idiotic people i've ever seen.how can you try to degrade the smartest show ever?i really pity on you.you are really pathetic and mentally ill morons.
"Seinfeld" is without a doubt the last great sitcom ever. Since then, all these worthless sitcoms just don't compare with this. Hell, even the actors who were in this are having trouble making a comeback. But, "Seinfeld" was great while it lasted. The premise was simple: a show about nothing. With it's hilarious characters and situations, this could be the best show ever. Each main character had something to add to the mix. And now Cosmo Kramer may very well be the most recognizable character in television history! It's too bad that "Seinfeld" ended it's course, but the last episode rocked!! I'm going to look for the DVD, if there is one. Anyway, "Seinfeld" rightly deserves a 10 out of 10.
This is the olny show that I know of that actually went out on top, all other shows seems to drop a little bit the last couple of years. Seinfeld was at its best when they decided it was enough, and that tells you a little something of how good it was.
All the actors feel very right for their roles, especially Jason and Julia. Excellent supporting actors also, like Wayne Knight and Jerry Stiller.
Jerrys stand-up is also very good, and often combined with the show in a good way.
All in all, its a very impressive show through all the nine seasons and I'm kind of glad they actually managed to stop on top.
This show really had a great run while it lasted, and it's amazing to see that even after it's over it's still going strong!
But I guess I can understand why, this was classic, possibly the greatest T.V show in history!
It was so original and nothing like any other show I'd seen before because while other shows try to come up with eccentric and complex storylines this show was based souly on nothing, nothing! With a concept like that it's hard to believe this show was half as sucessful as it was and still is today.
Seinfeld is great because it has hilarious characters (Kramer, duh!), catchphrases (Not that there's anything wrong with that!) and storylines that were based on real life that the viewer could relate to (like when they were stuck in the Chinese restaraunt for the entire episode!)
