  • Hoochie Mama!!!

    9.0
    Season 9 was in my opinion, very good. Kramer's plot was very funny. His problem with the kids from the building and having all that anger inside led him to destroy something very valuable. I couldn't stop laughing with this Endora's comment and then when he told George that he 'owed him one'.



    I like how that plot fits with George, whose dysfunctional family has one the best dynamics of the season. And George was very stupid to follow that well, stupid idea.



    Elaine has some trouble of her own with Mr. Lippman's son and well, at some point I wished I could've seen her and Jerry together. Well, it was good while it lasted.moreless
  • Serenity Now! Classic...

    Hah hah this was a very funny episode. Jerry lets go of all his emotions, which results in his breaking up with his weekly girlfriend and him constantly telling George he loves him and trying to get engaged with Elaine. George cometes with Lloyd on selling computers, and tries to fake it by telling Kramer to keep them... which doesn't work out. Elaine has this appeal to religious people, and in the end tries to get married to Jerry, but he denies it... I loved it when the 13 year old made out with her, he is a true man. Kramer tries to make a house of his space, which results in lots of stringy stuff. So it was a really great episode. A definite classic.moreless
  • A Seinfeld Classic!

    This is one of my favorite episodes from Season 9! Is really cool! Frank Constanza begins a new business of selling computers and eventually begins shouting "Serenity Now!" every time he has too much pressure in himself. He invites George to join him, but he does not care, until he sees that the other employee, Lloyd, is winning at him, or at least he thinks. So George tries to sell computers to everyone he can. Elaine begins to be the object of attraction to Jews people, when a kid kisses her in a Bar-Mitzvah, and then his father, and that is because she is shiksa. Jerry is convince by his new girlfriend to let out his emotions and feelings and begins getting mad at almost everything, and that causes a leftout of feelings from depression to love of evertyhing, and eventually asks Elaine to marry him. Elaine does not answer and when she finally says yes, Jerry tells her that it is not going to happen. Kramer turns his home into a native USA house and begins to get bother by children, which eventually drive him carzy. Great episode, a classic of Seinfeld!moreless
  • Best episode of all...

    10
    This is my favorite episode of all. The best part of the show is when Kramer takes Frank\\\'s screen door, and installs it on his apartment door. The plants outside, the BBQ, the WINDCHIMES......hillarious. Hoochie Mama! George selling computers competing against Lloyd Braun--another classic scenario. Then finding out at the end that Lloyd\\\'s phone wasn\\\'t even hooked up. \\\"You\\\'re not giving away our WaterPik\\\". Again, I can\\\'t say enough about this episode--it is just the best of all. My sister loves it so much that they actually named their boat, the \\\"SEArenity Now!\\\". Remember, \\\"Serenity now, insanity later!\\\" Thanks for reading this review.moreless
  • SERENITY NOWWW!!!

    9.5
    LOL! One of my favorite episodes coming from the ninth and final season of Seinfeld. Here, Jerry goes out with a nice woman named Patty who thinks he isn't always upset. So Jerry starts getting emotional and yells a lot which leads him into breaking up with her. Meanwhile, George visits his parents and discovers, Frank, his father, using a relaxation method called "Serenity Now!" to help him calm down. As he does this method, Kramer and George plan to help Frank fix his screen door but Kramer takes it. Frank also plans to sell computers and gets his son, George, to help him. So, he does work for his father in the garage as well as his "good friend" Lloyd Braun. George gets jealous and battles with Braun.



    Elaine, on the other hand, gets french-kissed by her former boss, Mr. Lippman's 13 year old boy at his bar mitzvah. She explains to the boy about becoming a man and he renounces Judiasm. Back to Kramer, he uses the screen door to use it for his apartment door and renames it Anytown, USA. Afterwards, a bunch of kids play around his apartment "lawn" and gets Kramer upset.



    Back to Jerry, he gets more emotional after the break up that it scares Geroge, and Elaine, but okay to Kramer as he uses Serenity Now. We learn a new phrase called "Hoochie Mama." Elaine goes up to Mr. Lippman and explains who she is and he renounces Judiasm which drives her crazy. Jerry hears about this and plans to marry Elaine. George shows up with a way to beat Braun with selling computers until he hears about the two proposing and leaves to store the computers in Kramer's apartment. George obviously wins and Lloyd gets fired but he cheats. Lloyd mentions to George about "Serenity Now" but "Insanity Later." Which leads to Kramer destroying all of George's computer. George is depressed and Jerry tries to cheer him up and George tells him the tales of himself. As that is going, Elaine talks to the rabbi and is very intersted in her so she leaves. In Jerry's apartment, Jerry is shocked to hear the tales of George as Elaine shows up agreeing to marry Jerry. But unfortunately, Jerry changed and isn't interested anymore. The episode ends as George leads the computer selling to bankruptcy. Even the Lloyd Braun sales didn't work since his phone wasn't hooked up. Estelle, George's mother, needed to move her car in the garage. Frank uses the Serenity Now but George insisted to use Hoochie Mama. And Frank does! This episode is hilarious!moreless
