  • My favourite episode

    Of the episodes that I have seen, this is my favourite for many reasons, the main one being that we find out that every instinct George ever had was wrong and doing the opposite gets him a job, a girl and confidence, which is definitely not the George we know. Highlights of this plot is George insulting Steinbrenner in the job interview and getting hired for it and telling his parents he loves them since that's his opposite instinct aswell as the wellknown "I'm unemployed and I live with my parents" pickup line.

    Jerry being Even Stevens is also a fantastic plot and turns out to be true in the end when one of his friends is always happy and the other is miserable since George becoming happy and having a job would obviously mean Jerry's other side, Elaine, would have to lose her job and be miserable.

    Overall, opposite George is one of the funniest episodes I've ever seen and is definitely my favourite.
