  • Slow start for Seinfeld

    By looking at this episode, I would not have guessed at first that this would be a famous series that would have 9 full, successful seasons later on.

    The story wasn't that great. It focuses on how a woman Jerry met on the road is coming to visit him. George gives his opinion on the subject, Elaine doesn't appear, and Kramer stops in for a few pieces of meat.

    Surprisingly, Kramer seemed drugged in this episode. He wasn't the Kramer that we all later on loved.

    Luckily, the series got much better after this episode and exploded onto one of the best series on television in history.
