  • Not the best episode but amusing with a clever ending

    Although still not up the high standard of pre-series eight Seinfeld 'The Slicer' doesn't jump the shark as badly as other post Larry David storylines and as such returns to the witty, well plotted style that made Seinfeld such a classic show. It's still not quite up to the best standard but it's a welcome episode after viewing its predecessor, the awful 'The Merv Griffin Show.' The final scene in this episode, which involves the confluence of events that has followed a doctored photograph and Kramer's attempt at giving a check up after being mistaken for a dermatologist, is very good and seals the episode off perfectly. Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross makes an early television appearance here as jerry's doctor girlfriend.
