    It's hard to watch this pilot without thinking about the classic episodes that would follow in the years to come. Still, on its own it is not all that bad, but not all that good. We of course see Jerry's beginnings with the parade of women that came through his life, but George's character seemed to be quite similar to what we would see in the future. His over-analysis of the phone calls or physical actions to figure out her exact motives were really funny. Had we gotten to know George well before this, it would just be classic George.
