  • The pilot (with diffrent theme song!)

    This is "The Seinfeld Chronicles" which was of course aired inthe summer of 1989 in what NBC called "Garbage Dump Theatre". I read in the Notes About Nothing that this was NBC's lowest watched program ever. Anyway, it starts with Jerry doing his standup. Then, it moves to Jerry and George eating at Pete's Luncheon (no, not Monk's!). Jerry finds out that his lady friend from Lansing, Michigan was coming to New York and wanted to get together. He attempts to watch a taped Met's game until Kessler (Kramer) walks in and blows the score for him. Jerry and George go to the airport to pick up Jerry's friend and they get back to Jerry's apartment, only to find that Laura is engaged. Kessler/Kramer is classic in ths episode with his dog "Ralph".
