I think Seinfeld is pretty much unique among sitcoms in that it never traded in emotions - only comedy. Most other sitcoms keep us interested primarly because of the comedy, but also because of the characters, whom us viewers come to care for and empathise with. But Seinfeld was different - it never tugged on anyones heart strings. We didn't care about Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer. We weren't meant to. They were all fabulous characters, but they were just vehicles for the comedy. Nothing happened on Seinfeld unless it was funny. Millions of people came to love this show, and it is consistently ranked as one of the best television shows of all time, just because it was funny. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Es la mejor serie que he visto, es una lastima, que en el pais, donde vivo Mexico, no es tan famosa.
Pero estoy seguro que si se dieran la oportunidad de verlo, se darian cuanta de lo excelente que es esta serie.
Mis personajes favoritos son, por supuesto Jerry y Kramer.
Es una lastima que terminara, pero bueno, creo que lo hicieron, antes de que se volviera una serie monotona y sin chiste.
Se extraña y pues por lo mientras nos tendremos que conformar con seguir viendola en DVD.
Larga vida a la mejor seria de todos los tiempos "SEINFELD".

There were ups and downs, hits and misses with the writing but mostly it was great TV. Throw out any of the various names: soup nazi, re-gifter, low-talker, high-talker, close-talker, Bob Sackamano, Putty, and Hello, Newman and people know what you're talking about. It never conformed to the formula and even when Jerry and Elaine did hook-up it was barely mentioned in passing. No break-up/make-up cycles which was really refreshing. The ending did leave something to be desired but, considering that it was still on top with so many die-hard fans begging for it to stay on, it's not surprising. I still compare sit-coms to this standard and it's been off the air (not counting the repeats) for years.
Seinfeld is as classic as any other show, despite the fact that it is not that old, it ranks up there with I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Mary Tyler Moore, All in the Family, Happy Days, Leave It to Beaver, Cheers, The Simpsons..and many more, because this show changed the sitcom and is the influence for many later shows such as Scrubs, 30 Rock, My Name is Earl, and many other sitcoms on the air are alive now because of Seinfeld having hit the air back in 1989, this show changed the sitcom rules and we love it for it
Seinfeld is easily the best sitcom ever made. Nine seasons of pure entertainment. I myself have re-watched every episode at lest four times.
It's a different kind of show. For once you can't see sadness on the show. You can see joy and happiness but not sadness. Well for the exception of the "Bubble Boy" episode where Elaine cries when Bubble Boy's father is asking Jerry to come and visit his son.
Jerry's part is great! He's the one doing the sarcastic and humorous remarks.
Kramer is the one doing the "cartoonish" part. Always doing funny sounds and funny poses.
George has the best part. Brilliant. A short stocky and cheap man with no regard to anyone but himself. His fiancée dies and the next days he calls another woman for a date! Elaine's maybe the less funny part. Amazing non the less. A man's woman who dates Jerry in the past and dances funny ("The Little Kicks")
Favourite episodes (and quotes): "The Butter Shave" (a vacation to Marseilles)
"The Contest" ("You'll be out before we get the check.)
"The Outing" ("I'm not Gay Not there's anything wrong about it")
What's not to like about this show? The humor, acting and plot (oh wait, what plot? it's a show about nothing!!! ha ha ha) are great. Plus, it's influence on modern sitcoms is undeniable (yet most sitcoms nowadays suck!). Good ones (episodes) include: Soup Nazi (no soup for u!!!!), The Puffy Shirt (second favorite), The Barber, The Big Salad, The Secret Code... actually, all of the episodes are great these few are some of my favs. Too bad this show doesn't have any more new episodes. Oh well. We have the DVDs at home, which is as satisfying as new episodes. OK. Bye for now.
Just like everybody says. It's the show about nothing. Jerry, George, Elane, and Kramer are four friends who sepnd seemingly all of their time together, and make alot of enemies for themselves; as you will see on the last episode.
Seindfeld is one of those shows, that you can watch it once, and come back a month later, and not feel like you're missing anything, yet still be entertained. Every episode is opened with a bit of Jerry's standup, witch usualy have somthing to do with the upcoming episode. For the most part, each epiode is based on its self and really has nothing to do with the one before or after it, other than a few "to be continued" episodes, like the world-famous last episode(s). Yeah... I saw it, and don't lie... you saw it too... Not to mention, this is one of the most quoted shows. Ever.
Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David have made the greatest Sitcom there will every be, I would go as far as saying the greatest show of all time. The show has my favorite character to ever grace television, George Costanza. The show Stars Jerry Seinfeld a comedian who lives in New York, and his friends that are constantly going in and out of Jerry's apartment. His friends George, a short, stocky, bald man, Elaine Jerry's ex-girlfriend, and Kramer Jerry's wacky neighbor who is always taking Jerry's food, they are always in Jerry's apartment or at Monk's Cafe. If you have never seen this show what is wrong with you.
seinfeld is a naturall comedy that is a very famous show i like how the charecter acts jerry seinfeld is a great actor and also seinfeld is probably one of the most realistic on t v all the other shows are impossible drama or cartoons and comedy shows are usually un realistic that is why this show is a great and famous show its a little stupid how ninety nine percent of this show is jerry and elaine i am not saying it is a bad show but its a little to much it is still a very good show
This show is about four friends which the show is about nothing they just deal with their life difficulties day and night. Starring a comedian Jerry Seinfeld (Himself), Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards), George Constanza (Jason Alexander), and women Elaine Bennis (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). This show is an earlier show which first aired in July 5,1989 and last aired in May 14, 1998 it had 9 seasons a pretty great success. At the start the friends were together and at end they were together even though the show has ended 11 years ago the show is still a watched show. great put together show and well-written one of the classic comedy shows ever.
A show about nothing, well maybe not nothing but, is it about nothing in particular? No its about the misadventures of stand up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his quirky but clever friends. I think Seinfeld started out around the time there wasnt a whole ot of spotlight on your average stand up comdian, so there was almost a mysticism about what life must be like for a professional comdedian, and just a general impression,unlike today where standup comedy is so very mainstream.
The idea behind this show is that, comdey happens every day, and almost every moment, its the way you choose to perceive, and relay it to others that makes it uniquely funny. Jerry Seinfeld is not what makes the show funny at all, instead its the awkward social situations that each character gets themselves in. Jerry's charater ( which you have to wonder how close is it to his real life self ) is very straight forward, A-type, boring, and basic, he does everything normal, and comes off as your typical nice guy, maybe even the average joe. Jerry always gets the date with the prety girl, Jerry always gets the opportunity, Jerry has plenty of friends and people that value him. All of these things seem to remain constant,and with that alone you wouldnt have a show at all, but when you surround him with a couple oddballs, like his best friend and con artist George Castanza, a total wild card next door neighbor Kosmo Kramer, and the female perspective Elaine Benise,and all of a sudden its , let the games begin.
Suddenly normal everyday issues like, tipping the waitress or, picking out a loaf of bread at the bakery, become much more interesting and humorous, through witty, distinctive dialouge filled with personal perspective and misguided viewpoints. Exaggeration, sarcasm, and even irony are used frequently to capitalize on each moment. Seinfeld is really a story of 3 distinct characters each caught up in their own world, struggling to achieve what they cannot alone, and it is because of this they all depend on one another for help, and Jerry gets pulled along for the ride, each and every time George comes up with a new scheme, or Kramer sets off on a wild goose chase. In many ways they attribute to each other developing more quirks, instead of becoming more balanced and independent. Seinfeld episodes cover such a wide variety of topics ,exploiting each one to the fullest, exposing the ridiculousness of public opinion and social expectations, without regret. Character development isnt really an issue because they are all so well defined and as soon as you know'em they consistently enetrtain you with their antics. Seinfeld has given us some very memorable moments, but the epsisodes skip around, and although they might follow a main idea or theme, they arent focused enough to prevent them from blending together. Sadly, continuity becomes an issues and a few plot holes seem too inexcusable. One of the most frequent and prominent topics of the show, is dating. The track record of Jerry and Elaine is quite absurd and their instability is a little disturbing, always bouncing from partner to partner with little to no reason. Meanwhile George and Kramer's characters are so over the top, its a wonder how anyone could coexist with them. Everyones favorite character seems to be Kramer, and he is after all the most peculiar of the bunch. George is the underdog al the way through, you see him through his highs and lows, and yet he never gives up, hes always reinventing himself,and you have to give him credit for his effort. Elaine, alot like George is pretty selfish and needy, but unlike George, she has almost no gameplan. She just seems to take whatever she can get away with. Its hard to categorize this show as anything,which unfortunately makes it more difficult to recoomend. Although its focus is comedy it doesnt really have any other themes. I guess you could say friendship and I would have to agree.
Its more or less a hit or miss comedy, your not going to laugh at every sngle episode or character
but its worth a watch anyway, just because you never know, what will strike you as funny.
Overall I'd say Seinfeld was a trendsetter, and a standard for which shows now a days are judged upon. Unforgettaby a good show for the lot.
Seinfeld is hilarious. For those people who were too young to appreciate it during its heyday like me, it's basically a classier version of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This show was the first to take random, ordinary situations and turn them into thirty minutes of sheer genius. The characters in the show are classic and have served as models for many of the great characters of today. Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer are completely brilliant. I can't even begin to describe how good this show is. I know many people share my enthusiasm and let me just say if you haven't seen this show before, give it a chance, it'll grow on you.
The shows long been over and we still go gaga over it.
That's how superb, this show is.
Jerry, George, Elaine, Kramer, Newman, Frank, Estelle, Morty, Helen, The Soup Nazi, Bob and Super, The doorman, Jimmy, Bania, Puddy, Alton Benes, Jackie Chiles, Antonio the Busboy, Babu, Macaroni Midler, The Bubble Boy, The barbers Gino and Enzo, The Maestro, the numerous girl and boyfriends of the four, and all the other characters..will always have a soft spot in our hearts.
Now, a question of etiquette - as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch? - Tyler Durden
This was truly one of the best shows to ever air on American television. Every epsiode can be classifies as a true classic. Even now 11 years after it went off the air you can still watch any episode and have it be just as relevant and groundbreaking today as it was when the show first premiered. The cast just meshed together so well and had a chemistry that is rarely seen. Not only where the main characters perfectly suited for the show, but so were the guest appearances. The only regret is that they show ended before its time was up.
"Seinfeld" is without a doubt the last great sitcom ever made. Since then, all these worthless sitcoms just don't compare with this.It's original and unlike any other show because in it's whole 9 season life there was never a sad moment a serious moment never a time when you would think 'oh no God no!!!! not a another dramatic moment, i mean even when Suzann (georges fiancé)dies George and the others really don't care, when frank thinks George his own son dies he's more interested in the Yankee's Absolutely brilliant, a masterpiece of comedic ingenuity filled with laughs all the way.
The brilliance of this show comes from it's writing , for the writers (mostly Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David) could take the smallest and most insignificant thing and turn it into an unbelievably hilarious situation.
The Characters of this show are yet another reason for its eternal greatness and the premise was simple [a show about nothing] simply like that.
Jerry Seinfeld who is the center, literally. Him and co-creator Larry David have created pop culture icon. Jerry Seinfeld dominates the show in his 129 West 81st St. Apartment, New York's neat and tidy. Riffing off comedy skits in the beginning and end, with the relationship zone in between. Examining every single detail in life. With no purpose whatsoever.
Elaine Benes(Julia Louis Dreyfuss), the female lead. She considers herself God's gift to man. She's spontaneous and very wonderful to watch. Several awards went to this character, and with good reason. Whatever and whenever, she's great.
Cosmo Kramer has to be the most creative and ingenious character ever brought on to the television circuit. Based on a real guy, Kramer(Michael Richards) plays him with energetic grace if that makes sense. He knows how to fall beautifully, and has so many mannerisms that I can't count them all. He garnered a lot of awards too. And if you've seen the show, you can see why.
Jason Alexander as George. The last cast credit on the opening titles, a character so devious, so uncomfortable, so empty, it was played to a T by Jason. The short, stocky, bald loser from Queens had to get under your skin, and make you laugh at the same time. Many award nominations, no wins. Now that's a pity.
Finally, This show was totally unique. Nothing has been done like it before. While it was about nothing, it was really about everything--but the little things that no one thinks about. We always saw Kramer wear the same ridiculous jacket, pants, and shirt. George always had those too-small plaid shirts and even Jerry had the black-and-gray striped shirt we saw him wear in the one where he and George make "The Pact". Even Elaine had many of the same clothes, even after her "make-over". This show had consistent humour all the way up to the last season, which is unusual for many shows. After all that Yada Yada Seinfeld has to be the greatest show of all time.
I can only say that even though an 'oldie', the Seinfeld show was therapy and provided endless great reasons for procrastination during periods (okay, almost a decade!) of major moves from and to new countries, some with language barriers ... where Seinfeld would always bring a sense of home on many levels (humor, shoot location, familiarity of characters and their roles), including of course the simple 'nothingness' in theme that Seinfeld is famous for: A show about nothing yet all of the little [no]things add up to so many things that we can always relate to in one way or another.
el diálogo excelente, la idea incomparable, una revisión total y esclarecedora de los comportamientos sociales de nuestra era, nunca se escribió nada igual. muchas de sus escenas son reutilizadas en diversos países, como tributo y como demostración que lo simple es siempre un ganador. los personajes se compenetran de una manera perfecta en cada capítulo, a cada minuto y durante sus nueve temporadas. esta serie fue la que me enseñó a ver televisión y me condujo a la resolución de esos pequeños problemas de la vida como "the worlds of george are coliding" y cómo éstos son mucho más complejos e interesantes de lo que parecen, las contradicciones a la filosofía paterna. gracias.
Seinfeld has always been an entertaining show. It's one of the few shows that I don't get sick of watching over and over. It has really funny comedy and bizarre storylines and plots. I don't know who thought of all of these storylines and what not, but it goes to show you that funny sells, at least in some cases. My favorite character was nobody. I think they were all equal as they each had their high points and low points with me and in the show. They made for a great comedy team and I don't think any other team had as much chemistry. Thank you.
I have to say, sitcoms today would be nothing if it weren't for two creative men named Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. What would life be like without them? Dull, that's what.
Seinfeld is the best sitcom out there, it's hilarious, clever, and always has great characters and plots. What's not to like about it? I know some people may not like it because they don't like Jerry Seinfled, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't like this classic!
Every show should be like Seinfeld, TV would be the best if every show was like it. I just can't express how great this show is!
This Show is a sitcom Classic. It is what other current shows should be like. This show always made me laugh at things that usually happened in my daily life, there is no other show like it and there will never be anything like it, after seeing the series finale, i cried a little i will never see Elaine, Kramer, George or Jerry Again, they will just be seen in reruns. The show had a simple plot nothing special like searching for the future wife or a group of geniuses. Just four seemingly normal people with flaws, Such as Elaine's vanity George stinginess and penny pinching and Kramer's Erratic Behavior. The Show is great and it will stay my heart for years to come.
This is probably the best non-animated tv show of the 20th Century. People my age find Seinfeld, unfunny and a complete rubbish but to be honest it's not. Seinfeld is about four friends (3 males and 1 female) and their not so normal life. Jerry always getting a new girlfriend nearlly every episode, George whenever he gets a job he then always wants to get out of it quickly soon after, Elaine always is getting a boyfriend and Kramer, the next door neighbour you don't want in real life. To me this one of my favourite tv shows, not that there's anything wrong about that
Seriously, what is the big hype with this show? It's really not funny. The only times I ever find an laughs in this show is Kramer occasional comical body movements, but even that's rare. Most of the time the characters are just randomly talking and anything said with any emphesis the studio audience laughs. Also the show is completely heartless, as the show is cold and every character has absolutly no morals and are just plain mean-spirited. I know I'm gonna get like a million thumbs down, but I don't care. This is the second most overrated show of all-time, just behind Three's Company.
Seinfeld will always be funny even now I'm having a good time these days no matter what day it is actually they just lift people up thank you guys for doing the best porformance there is for seinfeld one day though they'll try to make another set and I'll just watch the best our own original crew of seinfeld nobody can replace these wonderful humorous people that we have seen since we were that old huh I'm only 51 these stars have worked very hard for the acceptance of being the comedians they are encore encore only for you guys
When you think of TV chemistry, the obvious partnerships come to mind. Especially in today's current state of TV, most of the great partnerships tend to rely on a duo or two duos of characters that meet in the middle. Somehow, Seinfeld has this great chemistry that existed between four completely different people. Jerry use to date Elaine, but its no longer awkward, but Elaine seems to have channeled this awkwardness towards everyone else in the world. Her dates are never dull and the boys, Jerry, Kramer, and George, get to hear about it all. Jerry's relationship with all his cohorts is downright comical and together, this motley crew made up one of the funniest TV casts every. Seinfeld will always be a favorite of mine.
People always tell me Frasier is the intellectual comedy and as good as Frasier is, it is not an intellectual comedy - it's a comedy about intellectuals. Seinfeld is the intellectual comedy with seamless story line entanglement, varying layers of wit as well as slapstick - it usually takes people a good few hours of solid watching for them to awaken to the excellence so all the doubters out there - try it.
Personally it is everything 'friends' isn't, and for that reason the best sitcom ever made. No hugging, no learning with comedy darker, more real and better for it.
So, I'm like 15 years old, and I absolutely love this show. Even though its like a decade older than me, i still understand it and everything. This show relates to every age. If you don't understand something, you will in a few years. I didn't understand a few jokes a couple years ago, now nothing really slips past me. I really think this show is timeless. Even though Elaine's hairstyle does change, very slowly I might add, through time. George loses more hair throughout the season. Jerry looks a little older on season 9. Kramer basically looks the same. I also think that everyone can relate to some of these plot lines. Many of the things that happen, are a little far-fetched, but could happen to an everyday person. All in all, this show is absolutely amazing, and I don't think any show will ever come close to being as original.
Seinfeld is the perfect sitcom ever made in the history of television. It has many, many great story lines with great ideas. For example, the marine biologist, the dinner party, and the invitations. Jerry Seinfeld writer / creator / star is one of the funniest comedians ever. He and Larry David writer / creator is also very funny. The other stars Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, and Julia Louis Dreyfus put the icing on the cake. Although Michael Richards had a problem about 2 years ago but still is very funny. If you have never see Seinfeld, I totally recommend watching it!
Seinfeld, the great sitcom that ran for 9 glorious years. Ok, when Larry David left the show, the plots got a little silly, but it was still a great watch. Not many shows can suck a viewer into the worlds of the characters like Seinfeld did, George Costanza, based on Larry David, was loved by everyone for his approach to life. The crazy next door neighbour Kramer was a hero to fans, when he came bursting thru the door it was greeted with applause and cheers. This show is an all time great, the sheers number of episodes they made, and the quality of each and every one; make this show an epic, something that shows like Family Guy and Two And A Half Men will never be.
Seinfeld is the best show ever, and I'm not saying that because it really funny but because its pure pleasure, well at least for me. And i mean the talks in the restaurant they go to its just pleasure for me seeing that, it pretty relaxing with a lot of chuckles along the way.
Seinfeld is indeed a phenomenon of American comedy. Before Seinfeld it was unsure if American could come out with anything short of a predictable and broad sit-coms. Then came Seinfeld and from it other brilliant American comedies such as, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Scrubs...etc. (Not to say that America still doesn't churn out the one dimensional sit-coms.)
This is my thoughts about the final episode of the Seinfeld. I have seen this several times and there have been a few things about this episode that has bothered me over the years. I'm a big fan of the show.
As a regular viewer of Seinfeld since the beginning, I have become an enormous fan of the show. Some of the episodes are among the funniest episodes in television history. Among my favorites include when George does the opposite, when Elaine does the weird dance and when you see Kramer's face after he is exposed to all that smoke. I cracked up at that, especially when they showed outtakes from Seinfeld and Jerry kept cracking up when he looked at Michael Richard's face. I loved that. Anyways, about the final episode, I understand the humor behind the court room stuff and all the past guest stars in the final episode, but as a person who likes to see a little realism in a comedy shows, there are some things about this episode that bothered me.
First, I find that when they mocked the guy for being held up, I found that a little out of character. I didn't see them that cruel in most episodes. Even though they made some mistakes in helping others, they generally made an effort to help in a situation. Jerry did try to help the man improve his restaurant business. The guy wasn't doing well before he switched to Pakistani food, then Jerry and Elaine didn't purposely get the guy deported. The mail person gave Jerry the wrong mail and Jerry was away. They may have screwed up a little, but they didn't do it on purpose.I think the guy was wrong for saying that they are bad people.
I really think the 4 of them are more immature at times and a little self centered at times, but I don't consider them to be bad. George doesn't have a ton of money, so I can understand why he can't afford to buy things like wheelchairs. I do admit, they were wrong for parking in a handicapped spot, but the people didn't have to smash their car. Also, about the soup guy, just because he makes good soup, doesn't give him the reason to be rude to everyone. You can be a great cook and not treat people like crap. I actually admire Elaine for confronting this guy. If a guy who ran a restaurant treated me like that, I probably would do the same thing, or at least, talk to the guy. Also, about the contest. To me, what they did was kind of silly and goofy, but they didn't hurt anyone. Just because Jerry dated a prude, doesn't give her the right to judge them. This includes when Elaine bumped into the woman in the spa, she didn't do it on purpose. Jerry was just curious. I don't think I would want to be with a woman with plastic ones either. Also, George did not purposely kill Susan. It was an accidental death. George proposed to Susan, but had regrets after, he was insecure about the thought, but he was scared about hurting Susan if he rejected her. I wasn't crazy about her to begin with, she was either too bossy or too emotional. George deep down liked being a bachelor and there is nothing wrong with that. Also, about Jerry stealing the bread. I know, that wasn't good to do, but the woman wouldn't even listen to Jerry about why he needed the bread. It was important to his best friend that he got the bread for him. Jerry even offered her money for it, but she treated him like crap, so Jerry took it. Jerry shouldn't have done that, but he was desparate to help his friend. If that was me and someone need the bread that badly, I would have given it to them. It's only bread after all. Like I said, they sometimes lack judgement, but they don't go around committing crimes all the time. I think the people who accused them of these things were generally as bad, especially Newman. Didn't Kramer help Newman from not getting evicted from the apartment after Newman had a fling with the landlord's wife? I think that is my biggest complaint, the episode was too one sided against Jerry and his friends. Most of the people in that court room are just as guilty as them. Basically to me, Jerry is easy going and funny, but a neat freak. George is insecure, but when you think about, a good friend. He and Jerry stick together and are friends from basically childhood. Kramer is a jack of all trades and comes up with unique ideas. Elaine can be a little superficial and shallow, but she is still pretty loyal to her friends, even if it does alter from time to time. When I look at this show, these people really seem like friends. They may argue and do wrong things sometimes, but the reason I like Seinfeld is that their friendships seems very real and natural. They don't seem like they are acting. Anyways, that's my opinion about this episode and about the show itself.
