  • A good example of dark comedy

    This episode is rather memorable, since it is one of the few Seinfeld episodes where I honestly felt a little nervous watching it. The scenes with Joe Davola before and after dressing up as a clown are a little unsettling (especially with his "crazy" reputation), yet still funny, which makes the episode have an overall dark comedic feeling to it. The sensation that Joe is "after" Jerry also makes the episode a little unpredictable. However, the writing is impeccable and it certainly represents one of the series' best episodes in one of the best seasons. This one definitely stands out.
