  • Truly Disgusting, almost unwatchable!

    This is one episode that gets worse every time you watch it. The plot is oh so very complex: Laura staying with Jerry. Oh no! - Is she in love with him, or does she need a place to stay! And the "blow" at the end? Farcical! There isn't a single funny moment in this episode, probably attributed to the lack of the Elaine Benes character. George and Kramer themselves have bit parts in this episode, which is truly a shame as well.

    It really is a mess. Kramer - I should say Kessler - isn't a character in himself. You really don't know the characters at all, so it's like watching mimes - vocal mimes.

    Just turn off the television for thirty minutes. It'd be better than watching this junk!! I say it was pure luck, PURE LUCK that this show was picked up (Don't get me wrong, that's good!). Such a shame to start of such a beautiful show with this bologna!
