  • It works on so many levels!

    I think this was one of the earliest truly brilliant Seinfeld episodes. I actually thought the context in which Jerry made the pony remark seemed a little staged, but what followed was hilarious, with Jerry trying to defend himself, then agonising over whether he killed her, and whether he was obliged to attend the funeral. Barney Martin, playing the recast role of Morty Seinfeld, was brilliant, and would continue to be throughout the series, a much better choice then the original actor. His suggestion of catching a military transport flight home was so typical. I thought one of the funniest parts though was Kramers intention of installing levels in his apartment, and the ensuing argument over what the bet was for. And I also enjoyed George wondering how he was ever have the chance to have sex again, oblivious to the totally unrelated conversation that was occuring.
