  • This hit-and-miss episode proves that Rome wasn't built in a day.

    What if they made a comedy and nobody laughed? That question crossed my mind more than once while watching this almost painful early episode. How strange it is to see these characters - whom I mentally picture forever frozen at the height of their powers - back when no one really knew who they were, or supposed to be, including themselves.

    Kramer bolting into the room to absolute silence; George still holding on to dreams of hair and a svelte figure; Elaine seeming like a boring, dreary side note; it was almost depressing to watch.

    If it had been up to me, I’m not sure I would have kept this thing going after seeing this episode. Glad someone else was in charge!
