  • not a bad episode but not the best

    This episode was left to be made later in the series as it was seen as bland and not funny. I think it is a good episode however i can see how the network may have been weary to air it at the beginning of the series.

    The idea is a good one in that this episode does in a way sum up Seinfeld in general "a show about nothing" yet its entertaining.

    I find it funny how George mentions this in 'The Pitch' to Jerry when he says "Remember that time we where waiting at that chinese restaurant?, that could be a tv show" i found this a rather entertaining episode considering its critics said it would fail.
