  • The show starts in the present and goes backward, all the way back to where Jerry moves in next door to Kramer years ago. Three themes weave together -- the wedding in India, Kramer getting hit by a snowball and Newman dating a model.

    May be the greatest TV show ever, what an idea by the writers. Each of the backward plot lines is clever and the key idea is to find out the why about what we know has already happened. I thought the best plot line was the smallest, how did Newman get the beautiful model to go out with him. The answer is that he is on an incredible great run of birthday wishes. Kramer's problems with his friend, "F.D.R." are brought to light in the past. A tip of the hat to the writers who came up with this great idea. Works all the way, can't be missed.
