  • As huge of a Seinfeld fan I am, I won't lie. The pilot could have been better.

    There are a lot of things that separate this pilot episode apart from the others. This is also a very tough episode to rate for me because Seinfeld is one of if not my favorite show of all-time. Anyways, this episode wasn't horrible, they introduced Jerry, George, and Kramer well and had a pretty good story line. I mean, this episode right here really defines "The show about nothing" because nothing really does happen in this episode, or at least nothing important. I mean, it had a little story to it, but they really had to have one to introduce the characters.
