  • Great!

    This episode is really cool, Elaine gets tired of her friends, and goes out with total new friends, Kevin, Gene, and Feldman that are the exact opposite of Jerry, George, and Kramer, meanwhile Kramer begins to work at a new company by just getting to the bathroom there, and Jerry begins to feel lonely with everybody else out, while George manages to get to a forbidden club when he brings a photo of his dead wife. This is such a cool episode, is really cool!
  • A wonderful and underated episode...

    After watching "The Bizarro Jerry" you will know why Seinfeld is one of the best comedy shows that was made. This episode shows exactly how this sitcom's characters have their own personality, like when Elaine said: " I'm sorry....we already have a 'George.'", what's very important. Even Vargas can show us that Newman is well-characterized and well-thought, like any other character on Seinfeld. Moreover, the episode has inspired jokes like that one that Jerry wants to say to Elaine that he reads. "The Bizarro Jerry" is one of the best episodes of Seinfeld, and I think it's better than the most overrated episodes, like The Soup Nazi.
  • Awesome!

    This is the greatest episode, in terms of humour, that EVER lived! The Kram er plot is just hilarious, I can't get over how funny it is, I think at this point in the season, the writers were cooking. After this, I love the Jerry plot, it's amazing, him being alone, as well as the man hands thing, It's just a classic idea. And the Elaine and Kevin thing, has me rolling on the floor laughing, everytime I see it, the idea is just so crazy, and like seinfeld, i love it!

    This is definately the best episode of season 8.
  • Season 8, Episode 3.

    Haha, I loved this episode. "Man hands." LMAO! I love the stuff Seinfeld comes up with. I loved Elaine, especially with George's forbidden city philosophy. "You know, I tried to tell the queen that you were getting close, but now we have to go and move the whole forbidden city." LMAO! Then when Jerry says he doesn't like the man hands, Elaine says, "Would you rather she had no hands? Are hooks more attractive to you?" LMAO! George shows everyone his dead fiance, Susan, and it gets all of the women's attention. Jerry and Kramer sound like a fighting couple, LMAO! Great episode!
  • Seinfeld at it's finest!! It turns the Seinfeld premise on it's ear, with hilarious results!!

    In this episode, the basic premise of 4 single friends and thier adventures is turned upside down, using a reference from Jerry's favorite superhero, Superman. Elaine dates and breaks up with another guy, but this time, decides to be friends with him, ala Jerry. "Kevin"'s world is just like Jerrys, but everything is askew. The moment when Elaine's worlds collide is among the greatest Seinfeld moments in history. By the end of the 1/2 hour, Elaine knows where she truly belongs. This is one of the episodes that shows that Seinfeld never needed to leave the air before it did. Masterful writing and a delightfully quirky premise make this episode Top 10 material.
  • George tries to date more attractive women by using one to get on the \"inside.\" Kramer begins showing up at a business firm and works pro-bono. Elaine starting hanging with a new group of friends who are exactly opposite to jerry george and kramer.

    I loved this episode because it was a unique concept and i liked just watching how different the bizarro group was. Jerry has the best line in this episode when he awakens to find Kramer getting ready for work and asks \"How long have I been asleep? What year is this?.\" that whole exchange is priceless. I also like how much George makes me hate him in this episode which essentially is his job in the whole series. His ignorance of the opposite sex makes me angry at him but i laugh because of how ridiculous he looks in the process.
  • Haha Jerry is all alone!

    First I apologize for the classification of well written because all of the episodes are well written haha! I loved this episode! Cramer gets a job ( well not really but still ) and it is so funny when we get to see him with that song and he is eating crackers and stuff. Ha. George goes to some club because of this picture and he gets let in. I loved it when he expressed the fact with woman and there inner city and stuff. Jerry is beggining to feel all alone, which was really funny to me, because seemingly Jerry is never alone. The funniest thing to me is Elaine when she is standing between her three other friends and Jerry, George, and Cramer. I was practically spitting out soda then hahaha. She was like "Sorry, we already have a George". Although I think her other friends were queer But whatever. So it was a superb episode!!!
  • "She had man hands!"

    Just as with "The Race", Seinfeld plays on the myth of Superman with their main characters. In the race, Jerry dated a woman named Lois. In this episode, Elaine dates a man who's pretty much the complete opposite of Jerry, hence the Bizarro Jerry title. There's even a Bizarro George, Kramer and Newman to go along as well. In the end she has to choose between her regular friends and these new friends. It's great.

    This is also the episode featuring the infamous "man hands" quote. Jerry dates a beautiful woman with only one flaw (she has man hands). George uses the death of his fiancée, coupled with a picture of "man hands" to get inside a club featuring models in another great touch to the episode. Season Eight was the first season following Larry David's departure and I must say, Seinfeld found a way to stay strong. This is a great episode.
  • Funny stuff.

    I really liked this episode. It was well written and I have to say that it was really refreshing from the nit-picking the show usually does with their storylines and plots. For once, they actually added a hint of the Twilight Zone. Elaine found some friends opposite of Jerry and the gang. They were the good guys that actually did nice things for the world. In other words, they actually cared. My favorite part was when the two sides met. I thought they would fight, and I wished they would have. That would have been really entertaining. Overall, it was a great episode. Thank you.
