  • And Seinfeld begins.

    This is it. The original episode of Seinfeld. It seems like a completely different show, doesn't it? Everything looks different. Jerry's apartment looks nothing like it does in future episodes, the actors are just starting out, there's no Elaine in this episode, and everything's just confusing. In this episode, little happens. A girl flies in to New York from Michigan, and that's really about it. Nothing happens - I'm surprised the show got picked up after this episode, but I'm glad it did. There are just so many things different about this episode including Kramer's name in this episode is Kessler, and he has a dog. Monk's Cafe looks COMPLETELY diferent, in fact, it's not even called Monk's in this episode. Definitely a strange episode. Still, it's a decent start for the series.
