Just watching the DVD documentaries. It's crazy how much the original idea for the show is basically the pilot for Curb Your Enthusiasm. It was originally planned that the show would just be a 90 minute special of Seinfeld wandering around the city getting ideas for material followed by his stand up.


Here's some Larry David and Michael Richards sketches from Fridays:

Jerry and George shutting themselves away to work on the Roommate Switch is one of my favorite segment/montages, especially when George leaves in dejection and then bursts back into the apartment in a fit of inspiration.

Apparently the sequence was based on how Jerry and Larry David worked on difficult rewrites.

Aren't there supposed to be 200 odd episodes of this show? I watched it a lot when it was in syndication on Fox in the late 90s, and it seemed like I only ever caught the same forty or so episodes, obviously all the famous poo poo like Soup Nazi and Bubble Boy and the contest, but am I wrong in thinking there's like a trove that got less exposure (possibly by virtue of being not as good)?

This was actually adlibbed by Jason Alexander. So much great stuff that happened on the show were just brilliant comedic flukes or improvisations such as the car breaking down in The Car Park.

Exactly. George invokes society when he sees somebody getting away with something and thinks, "Dammit! I know I couldn't get away with that!"

George: "I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable."

I always found that Curb had a really good split between "I 100% agree with Larry, but wouldn't care this much" and "who even gives a poo poo about that."

There is an interview with Larry on one of the Seinfeld discs where he states that when writing he deliberately makes both sides of an argument on an issue of social etiquette seem right in their own way. The best example of this is the episode where George is fighting with Jerry's phoney friend over the parking space. George was in the right.

Don't forget the very last episode. Also when he gets arrested for the dog kidnap with Elaine and Newman. I like that Kramer's an old hand at jail. In fact all four of them have been arrested at least twice.

In keeping with a law and order theme. Jerry dated a cop and failed a lie detector and was shot up escaping from the feds, Elaine dated a serial killer well same name anyway while Kramer was mistaken for one, George dated a convict, harboured her following an escape and was assaulted by another convict on a plane.

Watching the Calzone again, I love the interaction between George and Newman, it's a shame they didn't interact more with each other, they're so similar in their own ways and could have had some more great little fueds.

Let me be perfectly blunt. I don't care for you, Costanza. You hang out on the west side of the building with Seinfeld all day laughing it up, wasting your lives.

Kramer also had that make your own pizza business with Poppie, he was an usher for that old movie house in the Gum and he was a jarvey in the Rye. I suppose the coffee table book counts as a job too and he also hosted his own talk show. At a stretch he was an importer and exporter of Raincoats but that might just have been a finders fee.
