  • One giant leap forward.

    I thought that this episode of Seinfeld was a definate leap forward from the pilot. It had a good story and it had a lot of comedy in it. This is the episode that I am sure people started looking at this show and saying to themselves that this show has potential. This episode had it all, it introduced a new character, being Elaine and it featured some good work by the writers and nice performances by Jerry and Jason, especially during the Stakeout. One thing that is referenced in later episodes of the series run all the way into the finale season is the fictional name of Art Vandelay made up by George in this episode.
