  • Perhaps it was time.

    Watching this episode you start to realize that ending the series at that point may have been a good idea. Some of the jokes were predictable, the different plots felt like you had seen them before. Especially the George story was old hat. How often have we seen Elaine fighting desperation? Jerry's conflict with girlfriend number whatever was based on his social awkwardness … again. Even Kramer couldn't save the episode. Although his relationship with the unseen girlfriend had some funny moments, the ending turned Kramer into a child, rather than a larger-than-life, picaresque character. I actually fast-forwarded some scenes here; that never happened before.
