  • Back on form!

    As I have stated in most if not every review I did of Seinfeld's eight season, this show jumped the shark in a big way after Larry David left the show. As a result it stopped being very funny. I'm glad to say The Butter Shave, the first episode of the ninth and final season of the 1990s most successful sitcom, returns to the form that made Seinfeld's 1994/95 peak so brilliant. In this episode, George pretends to be disabled so he can keep a job and all the luxuries afforded to handicapped people. This leads to some hilarious scenes involving stair lifts and a motorized buggy. George's is the most memorable storyline although each main character gets some funny and memorable stuff to.
