  • A hilarious episode with an opera take-off, and underrated.

    I think this is one of the most underrated episodes in all the Kingdom of Seinfeld. Whereas 'The Bubble Boy' and perhaps 'The Junior Mint' are more talked about, this one was a little more clever, a little more tongue-in-cheek than the others.

    Jerry's little facial expressions are a fundamental part of this episode. When Gino confronts his uncle Enzo that he is indeed planning on cutting Jerry's hair, the puppy-dog expression is a total classic. It was nice to see another 'acting' side of Jerry Seinfeld.

    My only quibble, and this is just a slight one, is the overdone Italian accents, but it does bode well with the fact that it's a play on The Barber Of Seville.
